French Bulldog  

French Bulldog

The French Bulldog is a small dog that has a flat, square head, a rounded forehead, pug-like nose and large, perked-up ears. Its shoulders are wider than the tail area, giving the dog off a pear-shaped appearance. The French Bulldog’s skin, covered by a short yet soft coat, is quite loose, thus making it easy and quite enjoyable to pet. Its tail, on the other hand, can either be cork-screw or straight.
