French Bulldogs are on the rise, and for good reason. Every dog has his day, and in my neighborhood it seems to be the day of the French Bulldog. Sure, we have our fair share of Labs and Goldens walking in the door at Life on the Leash, but Frenchies are quickly bringing up the rear. The AKC says that they're #21 on the list of most popular breeds, however my view from behind the counter tells a different story.
Should we credit Martha Stewart and her Frenchies for the rise in the breed's popularity? Or have people figured out that French Bulldogs are more than a pretty face? Frenchies are silly, affectionate, and the ones I've trained have been super clever.
Are you a French Bulldog worshiper? Or are you thinking about getting one? (If so, don't forget about the great breed-specific rescue organizations out there!) Share your Frenchie insights, advice and concerns in the comments!
