The French Bulldog, or popularly known as the French Bully, is a mastiff popularized during early Greek times. It was bred for the bloody sport of bull baiting. Phoenician traders were responsible for the dispersal of the breed around Europe. When bull baiting as a sport was outlawed, many of these mastiffs were out of a job and so they were used largely for domestic purposes, such as pets.

The breed is quite similar to the British bulldog, with a compact body and short legs, but being much smaller with more erect ears. In terms of temperament, it is much tamer than its British counterpart, and one will not have a hard time leaving this breed with small children, and also other animals and dogs in the home.

When they gee that they are not getting enough attention they will let out a yodel, or what has been termed the French death yodel. The breed is also quite protective, especially the females, of people that are around them Thus you can rest assured that they will guard your kids if you are not around.

Most people would call this dog, alongside the British Bulldog, as the ultimate indoor dog. This is because it is quite content not doing anything, and can also adjust well to small spaces and residential areas. Even though it may seem lethargic, it still does require a daily dose of mild exercise, such as a 30 minute walk to stretch its legs out.

Since this dog has a compact airway due to its size, and also it has somewhat of a snub nose, it will have difficulty in regulating its temperature. Many deaths have occurred due to extreme heat or cold conditions, the latter occurring due to its fairly thin coat of fur. This is not the dog for you if you live in areas with extreme temperature conditions. This dog lives best in a temperate environment or climate.

Eye problems will be something that the French bully will contend with as age progresses. This is fairly standard for the breed. Additionally this is not a very long lived breed, averaging only eight to ten years in terms of life span. However, lives can be extended of course when proper care, nutrition and maintenance is given.
