French Bulldogs - Fun to Have and Fun to Have Around
By: Tippy & Alfred

The French Bulldog is an affectionate, alert, bright,
clownish, comical, curious, easy going, easy to care for,

that are wider than the hips. The tail can be cork-screw or

The coat is easy to care for, short and soft. It comes in
colors of fawn, white and combinations of brindle or fawn
with white. The skin is fairly loose and soft. This breed
makes a very pleasant companion.
