Often described as "a clown in the cloak of a philosopher," the French Bulldog originated as, and continues to be used as a companion dog. The breed is small and muscular with heavy bone structure, a smooth coat, a short face and trademark "bat" ears. Prized for their affectionate natures and even dispositions, they are generally active and alert, but not unduly boisterous. Frenchies can be brindle, fawn, white, and brindle and white.
A Look Back
Lacemakers in 19th Century Nottingham, England selectively bred the early bulldog for a downsized or "toy" bulldog, for use as a lap pet. When the Industrial Revolution displaced some lacemakers to France, they took the dogs with them, and soon the "toy" bulldogs became popular in France, where wealthy Americans doing the Grand Tour saw and fell in love with them. In the late 1800s these "toy bulldogs" became known as French Bulldogs.
Right Breed for You?
Frenchies are indoor dogs and (like most humans) require air conditioning in hot weather. While good at alerting their owners to danger (Look! The UPS Guy is coming!), their main role is that of lap warmer. The Frenchie requires minimal exercise and grooming. You simply can not find a better "best friend!" The only "down side" to being owned by a Frenchie is that they are addictive (like potato chips) and it is hard to stop at just one --- without professional help you will eventually find you own several! I speak from experience as this is how I got started! lol

ROCK HOUSE FRENCHIES
All of our Rock House Frenchies come with the Following:
Customarily we do not show our puppies "in person" until they are 8 weeks old and have had a minimum of TWO PARVO SHOTS and at least one 5-way shot -- HOWEVER, we do welcome you to come by and meet us and some of our mature dogs so that you feel comfortable with us and the quality of our Frenchies. While we do not require that anyone place a deposit on a puppy that they have not "met in person" – we do HOWEVER, accept deposits if you feel that a particular puppy is "the one" for you and in many cases if you are looking for a specific color or markings our puppies are already "spoken for" before they reach eight weeks. We are happy to provide you with references. If you would like to come by and meet us please give me a call @ (602) 696-0213 to schedule a visit.
