FRENCH BULLDOG ORIGIN & HISTORY

French Bulldogs are actually of English origin. They earned their “French” status from 19th-century English lacemakers who specially bred a “lap” version of the bulldog, nicknamed the “toy” bulldog. These craftsmen fled to France during the Industrial Revolution, taking their pets with them, and thus the popular French Bulldog was born.

French Bulldog puppies are more like their English bulldog than the American bulldog.
