History of the breed
The French Bulldog can claim part of its ancestry in England. They were kept by French lace makers in England in 1800s. The English people had not accepted the smaller type of the Bulldog that the French kept in their country. The French lace makers, threatened by the industrial revolution, left for France in 1860s, taking their dogs with them. There, they started to breed specific personalities in these bulldogs to distinguish them from the English Bulldogs.
As the breed became popular, the French renamed them after their own country. The breed has seen a rise in popularity in recent years. From 2009 to late 2015 the registrations for this breed increased 10 fold.
