Description

French bulldogs might be small, but these little guys have huge hearts! Kids will enjoy meeting dogs like Bugsy, a nine-year-old Frenchie whose owner, Molly, is a zoo director in England. When Molly brought an abandoned baby orangutan home from the zoo, Bugsy immediately welcomed the new arrival with licks and cuddled right up to his new friend. Of course, it's not surprising that Bugsy would warm to the little orangutan because French bulldogs were bred to be companion dogs. The origins of the breed can be traced back to the 1800s, when lace makers labored in cold factories. The workers wanted a smaller version of the English bulldog that could sit on their laps and keep them warm as they worked. Over the years, a friendly little dog was successfully bred! French Bulldog: The Frenchie is a narrative treat for dog lovers that includes amazing, real-life stories about these pint-sized pups while also recounting the breed's history and its relationship to the animal's physical characteristics, personality, and suitability as a pet.
