French Bulldog puppy
French Bulldog puppies are loving, sociable and lively, with a naturally playful nature, making them lovable family dogs. Care must be taken in their first year to set ground rules and fully socialise a French Bulldog puppy so they can grow into well-rounded dogs.

French Bulldog adult
If they have been socialised well, adult French Bulldogs will get on well with other animals and children of all ages.
French Bulldog health and ageing
French Bulldogs are considered to be ageing dogs when they reach ten years old. With age, your French Bulldog may experience some hearing loss and vision impairment.
This is common in older dogs but will impact their lifestyle and how much they are able to do. You may also notice reduced motivation to exercise, often due to stiffer joints, so it is important to make sure your ageing dog is kept comfortable to ease any joint pains.
