History

The French Bulldog's ancestors, toy Bulldogs, originated in English cities where they were popular amongst lacemakers during the Industrial Revolution. As lace making shifted more into France, those lacemakers followed, bringing their dogs with them. It was in the French countryside where those toy Bulldogs were crossed with terriers and pugs to produce the French Bulldog we know today.
