The French Bulldog hails from England in the early part of the 19th century. It is a derivative of the Bulldog, that is miniature in size and stature with bat-like ears and is known as the toy bulldog. It was initially bred by English traders, who with the Industrial Revolution made their way to France to find work. Along with them came this toy breed. Here, the French lapped up these adorable dogs and gave them their moniker, the French Bulldog. The English were none too happy with the name for a dog breed that originated in England. Nevertheless, the name stuck and the breed continues to be recognized as the French Bulldog.
Growth And Recognition
Bred exclusively as a companion pet and watchdog, the French Bulldog had much controversy over its ear shape. This led to the creation of the French Bulldog Club of America in 1897. This organization was devoted to the breed and embraced the odd bat-like ears. The French Bulldog Club held a specialty show in 1898 to honor the French Bulldog, creating a sensation that led to an increase in registrations of the breed.
The breed continued to grow throughout the 1900s with the Westminster Kennel Club reporting that 100 French Bulldogs were enrolled in show. One of the most notable of Frenchies is Ch. Nellcote Gamin, owned by the Goldenbergs. Gamin helped to support the breed type in the U.S., making the best stock in the world and eliminating the need to import the breed. In 1906, the Kennel Club in London made the breed official and approved the name as Bouledogue Francais. The English Kennel Club later changed the name to French Bulldog.

Decline In Popularity
After World War I the popularity of the French Bulldog began to decline. It was replaced by the Boston Terrier, a more affordable dog. With the challenging times of the Great Depression, it was difficult for many Americans to afford a pure-bred dog, much less a French Bulldog.
Resurgence In Popularity
This all began to change in the 80s and 90s as the breed rose to popularity again as Americas had excess money and could afford a Frenchie. Today, the French Bulldog has assumed its spot as one of the most beloved pet breeds in America. It is in the top six for pet ownership, and its adorable traits make it the perfect companion. You’ll have many hours of constant chatter from your French Bulldog to keep you company.
