Adorable doesn’t even cut it when describing these goofy little critters! Personality fills up every corner and curve of their furry selves. French bulldogs are sturdy, compact, stocky little dogs, with a large square head that has a rounded forehead and a flat face. They have round, prominent dark eyes that are set wide apart. Their bat-shaped ears stand erect. The French Bulldog originated in 19th Century Nottingham, England, where lace makers decided to breed a smaller, miniature, lap version of the English Bulldog that was referred to as a “toy” bulldog.
