FRENCH BULLDOG PUPPIES FOR SALE IN TEXAS
We Specialize in Baby Face Teacup French Bulldogs and Miniature French Bulldogs
The French Bulldog is a small, compact, heavy-boned and short-haired dog whose 'bat' ears and short face give it a sweet but pugnacious expression. Frenchies originated in the 1800's from the same ancestor as modern Bulldogs, and their original function as a companion dog and lap pet are still their main "job" for which they are admirably suited by their strong attachment to people.
Though some like to hunt, retrieve, and pretend to be guard dogs whenever a stranger is at the door, most French Bulldogs excel at being friendly, loving clowns whose raison d'être is to be adored.
Owning a Frenchie is a major commitment. These are not “outside” dogs, they do not tolerate extreme hot temperatures. The teacup and miniature French Bulldogs do not become overheated as easily because they do not have as much body weight. French bulldogs over 25 or 30 pounds have been known to have a heat stroke while running and playing outside if they become overheated.
Affectionate: (Moderately Affectionate) They love attention from their owners and especially enjoy being patted, brushed or massaged. They even enjoy being massaged while being bathed. Nothing thrills them more than a day at the spa.
Affectionate with family some breeds are independent and aloof, even if they've been raised by the same person since puppyhood; others bond closely to one person and are indifferent to everyone else; and some shower the whole family with affection. Breed isn't the only factor that goes into affection levels; dogs who were raised inside a home with people around feel more comfortable with humans and bond more easily.
Being quiet, low energy, fairly calm indoors, and polite with the other residents, they have all the good qualities in an apartment dog.
Cold tolerance; ( Enjoy cold weather and love to roll around & play in the snow )

Our ratings are generalizations, and they're not a guarantee of how any breed or individual dog will behave. Dogs from any breed can be good with children based on their past experiences, training on how to get along with kids, and personality. No matter what the breed or breed type, all dogs have strong jaws, sharp pointy teeth, and may bite in stressful circumstances. Young children and dogs of any breed should always be supervised by an adult and never left alone together during the first few weeks in your home.
Dog friendly: Friendliness toward dogs and friendliness toward humans are two completely different things. Some dogs may attack or try to dominate other dogs even if they're love-bugs with people; others would rather play than fight; and some will turn tail and run. Breed isn't the only factor; dogs who lived with their littermates and mother until at least 6 to 8 weeks of age, and who spent lots of time playing with other dogs during puppyhood, are more likely to have good canine social skills. Puppies that are sold at our location are held and loved on daily by our staff and visitors.
Drooling potential : ( French Bulldogs - No Drooling ) (English Bulldogs -Yes & Large breed dogs )
Drool-prone dogs may drape ropes of slobber on your arm and leave big, wet spots on your clothes when they come over to say hello. If you've got a laid-back attitude toward slobber, fine; but if you're a neat-freak, you may want to choose a dog that rates low in the drool department.
Ease at being home alone : Some breeds bond very closely with their family and are more prone to worry or even panic when left alone by their owner. An anxious dog can be very destructive, barking, whining, chewing, and otherwise causing mayhem. These breeds do best when a family member is home during the day or if you can take the dog to work.
Teacup & Toy size dog's need a daily companion if you are not at home much of the time, please consider getting them a companion.
Scientific studies show that dog's that have a another dog as their playmate are 90% happier than dogs that are left alone all day and live longer healthier lives.
Do well being left alone all day but prefer a playmate: (Yes- French Bulldog )
These breeds do not need to be left alone all day as puppies: Micro Tiny Teacup dogs.
Ease of training: French Bulldogs love treats and are eager to learn with treats as a reward.
Many breeds are intelligent but approach training with a "What's in it for me?" attitude, in which case you'll need to use rewards and games to teach them to want to comply with your requests.
Easy to groom: ( French Bulldogs do not require professional grooming )
Some breeds are brush-and-go dogs; others require regular bathing, clipping, and other grooming just to stay clean and healthy. Consider whether you have the time and patience for a dog that needs a lot of grooming, or the money to pay someone else to do it.
Energy level: ( Low, Mild to Moderate - French Bulldogs )
High-energy dogs are always ready and waiting for action. Originally bred to perform a canine job of some sort, such as retrieving game for hunters or herding livestock, they have the stamina to put in a full workday. They need a significant amount of exercise and mental stimulation, and they're more likely to spend time jumping, playing, and investigating any new sights and smells.
Low-energy dogs are the canine equivalent of a couch potato, content to doze the day away.
When picking a breed, consider your own activity level and lifestyle, and think about whether you'll find a frisky, energetic dog invigorating or annoying.
Friendly toward strangers: ( French Bulldogs - Friendly, not skittish or timid )
Stranger-friendly dogs will greet guests with a wagging tail and a nuzzle; others are shy, indifferent, or even aggressive. However, no matter what the breed, a dog who was exposed to lots of different types, ages, sizes, and shapes of people as a puppy will respond better to strangers as an adult.
Due to poor breeding practices, some breeds are prone to certain genetic health problems, such as hip dysplasia. This doesn't mean that every dog of that breed will develop those diseases; it just means that they're at an increased risk. If you're buying a puppy, it's a good idea to find out which genetic illnesses are common to the breed you're interested in, so you can ask the breeder about the physical health of your potential pup's parents and other relatives.
Some dogs are simply easier than others: they take to training better and are fairly easygoing. They're also resilient enough to bounce back from your mistakes or inconsistencies. Dogs who are highly sensitive, independent thinking, or assertive may be harder for a first-time owner to manage. You'll get your best match if you take your dog-owning experience into account as you choose your new pooch.
Heat tolerance: ( French Bulldogs - Do Not Tolerate Heat At All )
Dogs with thick, double coats are more vulnerable to overheating. So are breeds with short noses, like bulldogs or pugs, since they can't pant as well to cool themselves off. If you want a heat-sensitive breed, the dog will need to stay indoors with you on warm or humid days, and you'll need to be extra cautious about exercising your dog in the heat.
Intelligence: ( French Bulldogs - Smart & Easy To Housetrain )
Obedience training and interactive dog toys are good ways to give a dog a brain workout, as are dog sports and careers, such as agility and search and rescue.
Common in most breeds during puppyhood and in retriever breeds at all ages, mouthiness means a tendency to nip, chew, and play-bite (a soft, fairly painless bite that doesn't puncture the skin). Mouthy dogs are more likely to use their mouths to hold or "herd" their human family members, and they need training to learn that it's fine to gnaw on chew toys, but not on people. Mouthy breeds tend to really enjoy a game of fetch, as well as a good chew on a chew toy that's been stuffed with kibble and treats.
Need for exercise:
The exercise they receive in their home or apartment is plenty. They do not need to take long walks because they can easily become over heated.
Some breeds do fine with a slow evening stroll around the block. French Bulldogs do not need daily, vigorous exercise.
They like to ride skateboards and push big beach balls around with their nose. They also enjoy watching TV and get super excited watching animal planet and hearing other dogs on You Tube or TV. They have a hilarious personality and can really liven up your home and can keep your guest laughing for hours by just watching them play.
Potential for weight gain:
Some breeds have hearty appetites and tend to put on weight easily. As in humans, being overweight can cause health problems in dogs. If you pick a breed that's prone to packing on pounds, you'll need to limit treats, make sure he gets enough exercise, and measure out his daily kibble in regular meals rather than leaving food out all the time.
Dogs that were bred to hunt, such as terriers, have an inborn desire to chase and sometimes kill other animals. Anything whizzing by -- cats, squirrels, perhaps even cars -- can trigger that instinct. Dogs that like to chase need to be leashed or kept in a fenced area when outdoors and you'll need a high secure fence in your yard. These breeds generally aren't a good fit for homes with smaller pets that can look like prey, such as cats, hamsters, or small dogs. Breeds that were originally used for bird hunting, on the other hand, generally won't chase, but you'll probably have a hard time getting their attention when there are birds flying by.
Some dogs will let a stern reprimand roll off their backs, while others take even a dirty look to heart. Low-sensitivity dogs, also called "easygoing," "tolerant," "resilient," and even "thick-skinned," can better handle a noisy, chaotic household, a louder or more assertive owner, and an inconsistent or variable routine. Do you have young kids, throw lots of dinner parties, play in a garage band, or lead a hectic life? Go with a low-sensitivity dog.
Tendency to bark or howl;
Some breeds sound off more often than others. When choosing a breed, think about how the dog vocalizes -- with barks or howls -- and how often. If you're considering a hound, would you find their trademark howls musical or maddening? If you're considering a watchdog, will a city full of suspicious "strangers" put him on permanent alert? Will the local wildlife literally drive your dog wild? Do you live in housing with noise restrictions? Do you have neighbors nearby?
A vigorous dog may or may not be high-energy, but everything he does, he does with vigor: he strains on the leash (until you train him not to), tries to plow through obstacles, and even eats and drinks with great big gulps. These dynamos need lots of training to learn good manners, and may not be the best fit for a home with young kids or someone who's elderly or frail. A low-vigor dog, on the other hand, has a more subdued approach to life.
Almost all dog's barks to alert its owners of an intruder's presence. Some may have a higher watchdog instinct than others.
