Summary
The French Bulldog has enjoyed a long history as a companion dog. Created in England to be a miniature Bulldog, he accompanied English lacemakers to France, where he acquired his Frenchie moniker.

Besides being a companion, he once served as an excellent ratter, but today his job focuses on being a fabulous family friend and show dog. He’s a rare breed, so expect to put in some time on a waiting list before you’re able to bring one home. Full French Bulldog profile on DogTime.com
