What’s not to love about a French Bulldog? They have large bat like ears, big googly eyes, and thoroughly enjoy a good snuggle. That’s what makes this breed one of the most popular companion dogs in the world today. The French Bulldog is small (less than 30lbs) but substantial in build with a powerful muscular body. They have a short, easy to care for coat that accompanies and easy going personality, which makes them ideal for first time pet parents. These compact dogs do not need a lot of space, so they are also good candidates for apartment living.
