ABOUT THE BREED
First thing which french bulldog takes everybody's attention is his extravagant and unusual look. More of people have crystallized opinion of his exterior - either they like him or strictly do not like him. In short no bulldog is not "only average dog", which you will pass unlooked-at.
His second exceptionality is his character. French bulldog belongs to so-called little molossoid breeds. As is generally known molossoid breeds pertain among most pleasant character breeds. Mostly they are well-balanced, peaceful, nonbarking and not insidious companions. In one sentence - french bulldog is little dog with character and heart of big one.
As breed was french bulldog recognized only before 130 years. His origin is perhaps in England, when handicraftsmen and textile workers skiffed with their little "rag doggies" to France and there most excited of them continued in their perfection and breeding. Results of multiyear breeding work of those usual - mostly Parisians - are surely excellent.
So if you live in a city, have a small flat, if you are a senior or you have children, if you would like to get rid of stress and you don’t have enough time for complicated maintenance of a dog’s appearance and its demanding training ... in short if you want an adaptable, non-barking friend – then I can sincerely recommend this breed to you.
Also peoploe from bohemian spheres (actors and artists, painters...in France for exampleeven bar dancers and courtezans) always very liked bulldogs.
Something else you might be interested in:
Appearance: small but strong and muscular dog with a robust head and large erect ears (so called bat’s ears) and shortened muzzle. Coat is short and thick, tail is short.
Colour: striped black-ginger, brindled black and white or fair beige (so-called fawn).
Size: height at withers about 30 cm (1 ft), weight 8-14 kg.
Characteristic: a charming companion, always cheerful but not hectic or nervous, with developed guarding instincts, adaptable, even-tempered.
Where it is/isn’t suitable: french bolldog is breed that needs to be in contact with others - with his owner, family, people and it gets on well with other animals too. That is why it is unacceptable for the breed to be placed outside of the breeders house ( for example in the kennel, outside where other breeds could do very well) - here it would mentally suffer.
Result from his companion character is his ability to adapt to his owner and humility. In purpose to stay close to his master it will draw in at the most, I would sometimes say even humble. You can keep it in a small flat - it will not bark without any reason and it will do anything for you just to keep in contact. Some of them have propensity to be dominant and dogged and they can manipulate with the owner very well - but all of this you can eliminate with good upbringing.
It is good for those who are looking for companion dog, which is not exacting for care and upbringing. It is a companion dog who is able handle also shorter hike and sport activity.
Why obtain a dog with a certificate of origin?:
A certificate of origin (pedigree) is an officially accredited document of the dog’s ancestors back to the 4th generation. Such breedig is mainly controlled by breeder. Out of this breeding should be disqualified dogs that are not acceptable because of seriuous problems ( like health condition, exterier and character). All of breeding dogs have to pass through breeding control ( in the Czech republic - "bonitace"). Breeding of purebreed dogs with pedigree is also controlled by the kennel club and if the breeder will not satisfy the conditions of the club rules ( that means that his breeding must have an ethic and a professional level), his puppies will not get pedigree and the breeder can not breed pedigree dogs.
Breeder of dog without pedigree can not give you any guarantee about origin of parents and his breeding is not controlled by anyone. Dogs without pedigree are in fact mixtures that may carry signs of particular breed.
