Why adopt a Frenchie, French Bulldog

Why adopt a French Bulldog (puppy parents share their views)

When it comes to adopting a puppy, there are quite a few choices. According to the AKC (American Kennel Club), there are 67 breeds in the US and our beloved French Bulldog breed is the 4th. Earlier we had an article about some scientific reasons for that and we could go on for days why we love them so much. This time, however, we asked the members of the TomKings Frenchie Family, why they chose a French Bulldog (over other breeds), and why it is awesome to have a Frenchie.


Lovable personality


This was the most frequently mentioned reason for choosing a Frenchie: their funny, lovable personality. They are social, friendly, and very easy to train.

Now that she is here…incredibly smart, so full of personality, perfect size and exercise needs, unbelievably affectionate. I love that they are attention grabbers in public, I have met new people…and I had no idea they had such a “cult” following. Now going to be my forever breed! I want # 2!!! Perfect size for me. Easy to train.” (Helen)

Obsessed with their face, color, Loooove their personality (calm and playful ‘Carter The Calm’ ) and their versatile size. Now that we have him, he is the most lovable, funny, cuddle bum, beautiful friend and companion.” (Margarita)

Frenchies have so much personality and every day I find myself laughing at Buster’s behavior and am amazed at how well he’s adapted to our family. He always brings us and everyone he meets joy, he’s great with other animals and situations of every kind. We can’t imagine a day without him now! Also, this is our first dog as a couple and is training us for future adventures (aka children).” – (Maja)

“We chose a Frenchie because of their size and personality because we live in an apartment. We wanted a dog that would be active with us but also enjoy some lazy days. They are also so friendly and good with kids, so we would never have to worry about taking him anywhere!” (Ashley)

Their small size


French Bulldogs are small, 11-12 inches tall, and usually don’t weigh more than 30 pounds, and this fact makes them very popular. It’s easy to carry them wherever you go and they easily fit in a small apartment. They are even able to convert even a big dog person as it seems from the comments we got from the parents.

I chose the breed due to size, smart, and personality. I love their comical and compact looks. I also did not want a breed that required a lot of grooming like my terrier.” (Helen)

Because they are so cute and funny looking and good apartment dogs.” – (Jackie)

I chose a Frenchie because of their size and I’ve heard they’re a great pup option for the city since I live in an apartment in Chicago.” – (Maja)

A friend of mine had one and I absolutely fell in love! I had been a big dog person before this and had never considered a smaller dog. But once I started doing the research it was everything I needed and wanted. Smaller. Good companion. Good traveler. Friendly. Sweet.” (Shayne)

I chose this breed because I loved their little faces and compact build! I’d always been a big dog kind of person (Rottweiler, mastiff) but that required more yard space, so I started researching a smaller breed and went for it!” (Tenae)

Great with kids and other dogs


French Bulldogs are not jealous of kids, other dogs, and cats, and get on very well with them. This is very important for families and grandparents.


Because they are great with kids, so sweet and funny and loving.” (Jackie)

He’s great with kids. He’s great with other dogs. He’s just the greatest decision I have ever made!! I am ready for a second one!!!

They are your best friends


Frenchies are your best friends, and in these challenging times, adults and kids find consolation in their sweet puppies.

Wow! Now I will never not have a Frenchie! They are so loving, and such funny little things! So good with kids, perfect for my smaller yard, not yappy like most other smaller dogs, not overly hyper, easy to bathe, and just an overall blessing! Especially in this weird time, we’re in right now! A little therapy dog to help anxiety and keep the kids busy playing and caring for them!” (Tenae)

I’m glad I got a Frenchie because she has turned out to be my best friend. She has been the most loving and snuggly dog. Snuggles from a Frenchie are life-changing.” (Stephanie)

She is amazing with people and other dogs, runs forever every day with her furry friends. Oh my God, I can go on and on, especially now being home with the lockdown she is our lifesaver ❤️.” (Nike)

They don’t need a lot of grooming


Yeah, no grooming, and mine doesn’t even shed. She’s so clean even inside her ears.” (Jackie)

I’m so glad I did because this boy is hands down the most well rounded, easy temperament. He’s a clown that is smart, well behaved, and surprisingly quite athletic. They never slobber, easy to groom, and small enough to go anywhere. What more could you want?” (Jennifer)

In fact, some of the parents are ready for the second pup


He is the sweetest, funniest, kindest, most lovable companion ever!! I ride horses competitively and he goes everywhere with me. He’s just so easy and happy to go wherever I do. I love to watch people light up when they see him. Louie has definitely never met a stranger for sure. He’s great with kids. He’s great with other dogs. He’s just the greatest decision I have ever made!! I am ready for a second one!!!” (Shayne)
