A friend of mine dropped $1500 on one these critters. His wife just HAD to have one-just like she just HAD to have a BMW X5 and a Wolf range that she never goes near (we're talking about residents of a certain notorious N. Cal. county here). The dog is wheezy, unfriendly and yappy, and generates more dung than a pony. I just don't get the appeal. And doesn't their extreme body density render them unable to swim?
I'm a poodle lover-from toys to standards. They've never been fashionable again since their heyday and that's fine with me. And all Poo's are great swimmers, no danger of finding your mega-buck status symbol swirling around the skimmer.
I can live with typical middle-class status sucking, but bristle when it's extended to children and animals as life-style accessories.

Wrong R38, pugs are the ugliest dog on the planet. Pugs are so genetically deformed that they have no snout and can hardly run, and that more ethical breeders are trying to replace them with a breed called retromop. But people like you have no concept of cruelty to animals and will still want a pug.

..but they can own a French Bulldog, R49? I think your teapot stance is cutting off the circulation to your diaphanous little hands.
Standard poodles are practical and intelligent hunting dogs. And the little guys are comedians and diligent guardians. Your attitude is as outdated as French Bulldogs are silly and problematic. My last toy poodle travelled the country with me, swam in The Great Salt Lake, and rode around my neighborhood in my big, bad, standard shift Ford F-250. Hint: a Honda Ridgeline IS NOT a truck.
Ounce of pride? I have pounds of the stuff. It's just not projected through my dogs.

So many misinformed prisspots on this thread. Yeah, they do bark if you leave them alone as they're social in the extreme and need companionship so a Frenchie alone in the backyard for hours is stupid.
Like any breed they can have health issues so its up to the potential owner to seek out and vet good breeders. Those who don't encourage poor and sometimes tragic breeding.
I like them for many reasons - probably most because they have big dog personality, they're smart and communicate well and not much grooming required.

"French bulldogs frequently require artificial insemination, and caesarean section to give birth, with over 80% of litters delivered this way. As well, many French bulldog stud dogs are incapable of naturally breeding. This is because French Bulldogs have very slim hips, making the male unable to mount the female to reproduce naturally. Typically, breeders must undertake artificial insemination of female dogs. Female French bulldogs can also suffer from erratic or 'silent' heats, which may be a side effect of thyroid disease or impaired thyroid function."
When you buy a French bulldog, these are the activities you encourage and support. Stop it.

My ex has one of these. The poor thing is like retarded, and can't breathe. It wheezes and pants just going up my front steps.
We always had labs as kids, from a particular bloodline of a local breeder. Literally every single one of them died of cancer at 6-8 years old. When I was a freshman in college, I ended up in possession of a baby black lab/boxer mix that a friends dog had birthed and had been brought back due to whatever stupid reason people bring back dogs (moved, kids, etc.). I'll be damned if that wasn't the healthiest dog I've ever had; she lived to 18 years old and other than arthritis in her last 3 years, never had health issues. Never needed so much as a teeth cleaning. She finally had a heart issue and had to be put down but that really convinced me that purebreds are inherently unhealthy. I have never gotten a purebred dog since then, and my current one, who looks like a golden retriever but is smaller, is the smartest, most loyal dog I've ever had. Meanwhile, my cousin continues to buy labs from the breeder, who all die at less than 10 years. Her current one just had a bout of throat cancer. It really is criminal the way that these breeders mate dogs with their puppies in order to preserve the "bloodline" and it's criminal that idiots like my family keep spending $1500-2500 buying dogs from them.

French Bulldogs are the best! I have shown them, as a hobby, and ours are always pets first and foremost. I belong to a regional breed club, help in Frenchie Rescue, & am very active in breed education. Because they've become so popular, there are sadly alot of unscrupulous breeders and puppy mills pumping out sick & congenitally messed up puppies with health & behavioural issues. They are a fun breed, very people oriented, and although there are alot of potential health issues, ethical & responsible breeders thoroughly research & health-test to improve the health of the breed. If Frenchies were a complete genetic nightmare, there wouldn't be nearly as many living to 14 or more, and there are alot of dedicated people doing everything they can to reduce health issues. If anyone considers getting one, always do your homework to make sure you're getting your dog from the right people. There are pros & cons to every breed or mixed breed of dog. Everyone has different tastes in dogs, and there is a breed for everyone. I like them for many reasons, a big one being because they are joyful, silly, not frou-frou, compact but sturdy. They're called the 'clowns of the dog world', and they are also well suited to city living, and don't require tons of excerise.

Not a fan because this breed popularized the habit of using dog strollers on public sidewalks. I've had yorkies for years and have had to use a bag when traveling but they could handle walking several blocks without sounding like a 250lb smoker.
All of the designer mutt breeds are mistakes, hell even the original breeder of the Labradoodle regrets his work because of how improperly educated and greedy breeders knowing nothing about genetics and behavior have created a large problem with this breed.
