The French Bulldog was developed by English lace makers who bred a toy-sized bulldog to be a lap pet. After the Industrial Revolution, this intelligent, well-behaved, playful breed became popular in France. Prized for his affectionate, even disposition, the French Bulldog is an active, alert watch dog that requires minimal exercise. His fine, smooth coat needs little maintenance.
The French Bulldog is a popular breed among Hollywood celebrities including Hugh Jackman, David Beckham and Reese Witherspoon.
