Are you considering to adopt a French Bulldog? Here’s a little history and some of their best attributes. French Bulldogs first appeared in Paris in the mid-nineteenth century as a result of crossing toy bulldogs from England with Parisian ratters. They had been imported by Americans in the 1800’s but it wasn’t until 1885 that a breeding program was officially set up and eventually the French Bulldog Club of America was created. In the early 20th century they became popular among high society costing up to $3000 and being among families like the Rockefellers and J.P. Morgans. In 2021 French Bulldogs became the 2nd most popular breed. Celebrities who own Frenchies include Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Lady Gaga, Eva Longoria, Hugh Jackman, Reese Witherspoon, Madonna, and many more.
