Illinois and America Has Spoken, French Bulldogs Are #1 and I Agree!
For the first time in three decades, the French Bulldog has taken the top spot as "Favorite Dog Breed," and I 100% support this! NBCNews
“They’re comical, friendly, loving little dogs, city-friendly, with modest grooming and exercise needs, they offer a lot in a small package.” - French Bull Dog Club of America spokesperson Patty Sosa
We are a few years into being French Bulldog owners at home, and it's great. I've had all kinds of dogs in my life and seriously Frenchies and the best. Super low maintenance, loving, playful, but really just wanna hang out and chill with you...no matter what you are doing.
"Adorable in some eyes, deplorable in others, the sturdy, push-faced, perky-eared, world-weary-looking and distinctively droll French bulldog became the nation’s most prevalent purebred dog last year." - NBC News
Some of these French Bulldogs "can" have breathing issues, and they can lean towards the heavy side weight wise if you let them...Let them run and play, let them be active, and then then nap for a couple hours. What a life!
So here are the numbers on French Bulldogs. In 2022, about 108,000 newly registered French bulldogs surpassed Labs by over 21,000. This is the first time in three decades that the Frenchie is #1. Is has become trendy and the "thing to do" but when my wife and I visited our pup for the first time it had nothing to do with that. We just knew she was going to be part of our family.
