French Bulldogs, also known as Frenchies, were initially created in England for the purpose of being a miniature Bulldog. These dogs would join English lacemakers on their way to France, explaining how the French part of their name came to be. Frenchies have a pleasant temperament, are easily trained and get along well with children. These dogs were first introduced to the United States at the Westminster Kennel Club dog show in 1896.
