5. They Have Two Different Ear Shapes

Originally, the first French bulldogs had what are called “rose” ears. These are more curled-in. Once they made it to America at the turn of the 20th century, breeders were infatuated with the prominent “bat” ears which are a hallmark of the breed today. Though bat ears are easier to find, you can also select a French bulldog puppy with rose ears.
