Three Interesting Facts About French Bulldogs
French Bulldogs have been bred to be one of the best companion dogs. Their temperament to be in close contact with human companions. They are adorable and make wonderful additions to a family and are great to cuddle up. All of this information is fairly common knowledge. So here are three interesting facts about French Bulldogs.
Fact 1: They aren't very good swimmers.
Their small compact frame isn't designed to speed through water like a torpedo. Instead, they may require a bit of help from their human friends if a lot of water is involved (for example, a life jacket). One upside to this is how adorable they look in those tiny orange vests.
Fact 2: They love to "talk."
You can tell the breed is heavily influenced to be companion dogs when they have moved away from sharp barks to a more complicated "talk". These can sound like gargles, yips, and growls. While it may feel like it's a full language, any communication gained is strictly through their human bond and routines.
Fact 3: They may need help building a litter.
These loveable doggies may need some human help to get that litter started. That's because of their short compact frame doesn't always work well for starting a family. Lucky for them, their humans can help use science (via artificial insemination) to help them start a new litter of puppies.
Watching a bunch of French Bulldog puppies play is all the explanation needed for why these dogs exist. They are massively adorable, wonderful cuddlers, and great with families. Hopefully, this list of names and article has helped you find the right match for your new family member. If you need a bit more inspiration, check out the video below of cute French Bulldogs.
