In the 19th century, toy bulldogs were popular as companions and lap warmers for lace makers in English cities like Nottingham.

From there, the small companion bulldog was cross-bred with terriers to create the French bulldog we know today.

As the French bulldog gained popularity through the late 19th century, many prominent society families took note.

One of the last Romanovs, Grand Duchess Tatiana Nikolaevna, had a beloved Frenchie named Ortipo.

4. They Get Along Well With Other Dogs

If you want to welcome a French bulldog but worry about how they will get along with another dog, we can put your fears at ease. As long as they are properly socialized, French bulldogs get along wonderfully with other breeds of dog. They’ll become an affectionate and adaptable pack member.

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.
