French Bulldogs make great pets because they are generally very friendly, not aggressive, which also makes them a great choice for first time dog owners. Just like any dog, they can at times become aggressive toward other dogs of their same breed and gender, but it’s very rare for them to be aggressive toward children or adults if they are treated kindly.
Full grown adult French Bulldogs typically weigh around 20 to 30 pounds and stand about 10 to 15 inches tall. Because of their low weight and small size, these dogs are not as active or “sporty” as other breeds. However, this doesn’t mean they don’t get a thrill out of running around with the kids. It just means they probably won’t last long on your 5-mile run around the neighborhood.
With an average lifespan of more than 10 years, this breed is pretty average for most dogs. It’s unusual for a dog to live less than 7 years or longer than 16 years, so French Bulldogs are truly right in the middle of the average.
The French Bulldog puppies for sale on this site typically range in price from $4,000-$5,000 or more. Why are they so much more expensive than other dog breeds? They are a cross bread between Toy Bulldogs and Ratters, and they typically require insemination which requires the breeder to pay a pretty hefty stud fee. Additionally, because of the resulting size and build of the puppies, the mother often requires a c-section to deliver, which is much more costly than a natural birth.
Not only is this breed expensive to adopt, they are also expensive to maintain. It’s not uncommon for owners to spend more than $2,000 per year when you add up insurance bills, visits to the vet, dog food, etc. But if you can afford the extra expense, it’s worth it for the extra love and affection your new dog will bring to you or your family.
