For the second year in a row, French bulldogs were named the most popular dog breed in NYC last year, according to the American Kennel Club. These wide-eyed, energetic pups are popping up as members of families across the nation, with owners fawning over their personality and unique looks.
But what makes the French bulldog so popular?
The Perfect Companion
According to amNY, Frenchies are bred to be companion animals. Extremely friendly and bursting with spunky personality and attitude, French bulldogs make a great family dog, ready to fill your home and hearts with cheer and energy. When you are looking for a friend, Frenchies are the breed to seek out.
Weighing in at less than 30 pounds, French bulldogs are easy to take on the go. Whether you’re catching a train, hopping a plane or going on a road trip, French bulldogs are easy to take with you wherever you go. Due to their small size, French bulldogs are the perfect travel companions for all types of travel, including on buses and in cabs!
Apartment/Small Flat Living
Due to their small size, French bulldogs are also an ideal pet for small, crowded apartments or small flats. These furry Frenchies thrive in the city. Plus, these dogs tend to be very polite in their living quarters – they don’t often bark or disturb the neighbors, making for a peaceful living space on all fronts.
French bulldogs are so popular even celebrities dig them! According to The Telegraph, from Carrie Fisher and the Beckhams to Lady Gaga and Reese Witherspoon, celebrities are constantly spotted toting their furry Frenchies around town or on the red carpet. With celebrities shedding ample spotlight on this breed, their popularity should come as no surprise.
French bulldog owners tend to get a little excited about their adorable pups, creating Instagram or other social media accounts for their Frenchies. Owners dress up their pups and celebrate their mischief via social media, with some accounts amassing more than hundreds of thousands of followers. One account in Chicago – Manny_the_Frenchie – has more than 1 million followers! Clearly the social media attention is helping grow the popularity of this adorable breed.
