10 Different Types Of French Bulldogs: Frenchie Breeds For Families

What are the different types of French Bulldogs?

My brother and his family have just bought 2 French Bulldogs (see them in the picture below).

He got them at 8 weeks old and they’re growing slowly – at least compared to my Lab/German Shepherd, who you can see eating his chicken dinner in this post. His two Frenchie pups have quickly become much-loved members of the family.

French Bulldogs make affectionate pets that are great with younger children. Because of their small size, they can be a fairly low impact on the home, and they don’t eat a huge amount. Their cuteness is surely the cherry on top!

They are a domestic breed, known for being excellent companion dogs. However, when it comes to the different varieties of French Bulldogs, some can have more health issues than others.
