French Bulldogs are bred to be companion dogs. They are stocky compact dogs with a friendly mild-mannered temperament. They require close contact with humans. If left alone for more than few hours they experience separation anxiety. The Frenchies need minimal exercise needs but do require at least daily short walks.
The French Bull dog is sometimes called a Frog dog or a Clown dog. 'Frog dog' is in reference to their wide round face and the way they sit with their hind legs spread out. 'Clown dog' is because they are considered to be fun-loving.
