The French Bulldog is quite small in size. These dogs typically do not weigh much more than 28 pounds. The height of the dog at the shoulders is only about eleven to twelve inches. The small size of this dog is one of the reasons that they are quite popular. They are cute, fun loving, and playful pups. While not considered to be a “toy” breed, they are a miniature version of the larger English bulldog.
They are a mix between the large English bulldog and the smaller ratters that were found in France during the late 1800s. They were often used by lacemakers to help keep the rats away from the places that they worked in. These small dogs do not need a whole lot of space, which makes them a good choice for those who live in an apartment or simply do not have a lot of space for a bigger sized dog.
