French Bulldog

Non-sporting Breed

French Bulldogs rescued through the French Bulldog Rescue Network

The French Bulldog can be a “one-person” dog although it will get along well with others.  Males may tend to be dog aggressive, but usually they have no problems with other pets.  A funny and affectionate companion.  They can get along with children as long as the child is considerate of the dog’s size and habits.  Good for apartment dwellers or the less active owner.  Is not fond of hot weather.  Very easy to groom.

We STRONGLY recommend that you get your dog from a respectable breeder or rescue organization.  Pet store puppies may get their dogs from Puppy Mills that normally breed only for profit, not quality or concern for the puppy or its eventual owner.
If you would like help locating a breeder or rescue agency near you please E-Mail PGAA (, and let us know your city/state and the type of dog you are looking for.  Do not assume that PGAA has qualified all of the breeders or rescues on this site.  Do your own check of each breeder or rescue — be sure that you are comfortable with the organization before you buy, adopt or turn-over a dog.
