About French Bulldogs
French bulldogs have a fascinating and colourful history. Thought to be the result of crosses between toy bulldogs and terriers, these roguish little dogs originated in the working mill towns of England.
When the industrial revolution replaced many weavers with machines, Nottinghamshire lace workers went to find work in France, where lace was still being made in the traditional way. They took their beloved dogs with them as they were easy to smuggle on board ship and helped kill rats in the cramped living quarters.
French bulldogs became the favourites of Parisian Belles de Nuit (street walkers) as they made it easy for potential customers to strike up a conversation. Their popularity spread and Frenchies became the fashionable accessory amongst Parisian high society, the artistic in-crowd, shopkeepers and cafe owners.
Famously owned by Toulouse Lautrec, King Edward VII the Russian royal family, Leonardo di Caprio, The Beckhams & Yves Saint Laurent, these sociable, playful dogs love to be the centre of attention.
