For the last year, the French Bulldog has been the most popular dog breed in the U.S., but what makes it such a great dog for families? If you are wondering why you might want to adopt a French Bulldog, we have three reasons that these pups are perfect as a family dog.
Obviously the size of the dog and their cuteness level is a major reason why someone might want to bring home a Frenchie, but what else makes them great pets? Why should you choose a French Bulldog over another breed of dog?
3 things that make the French Bulldog a great family pet
- They are adaptable – When it comes to dogs that are known for being adaptable, the Frenchie is definitely a great choice for a lot of reasons. They can easily adapt to a small apartment or a large house. They can handle a schedule that is not necessarily set in stone and when it comes to their activity levels, it is safe to say that as long as you can handle short walks with them, they are actually quite content with moderate activity levels. The Frenchie is content to play inside, as much as they are able to have fun outside.
- They are friendly dogs – The overall temperament of the Frenchie means that they are great pups to have if you have children and even other pets. As A-Z Animals points out, the French Bulldog is known for their “companionship, warmth, and affection that can brighten even the gloomiest days.” These dogs are very gentle and they offer unconditional love to their families. And of course, the fact that they are very patient with children is an added bonus we love.
- They are pet friendly – As we mentioned earlier, these dogs are great with other pets. In fact, the Frenchie is able to form bonds with other dogs (and even cats), and they are considerate of the animals in their homes. These pups have a very gentle approach to other animals in their lives, allowing them to form very special bonds with the other pets in the house. And we can’t help but love the fact that, “Their playful and engaging nature often leads to heartwarming friendships with fellow dogs. They love a good game of tug-of-war or a friendly wrestle, and they’re equally content to curl up together for a nap afterward.”
