The British Love The Frenchie!

15th February 2016

Dear easipetcare friends,

We all know that our own dogs are of course the best breed in the world, but do you know what the most popular dog to own in 2016 is?

Well, last week The Telegraph reported on “How did the French bulldog become Britain’s top dog?” Statistics released by the Kennel Club and reported by The Telegraph have shown a 2,747% increase in registrations of the French Bulldog since 2004, which has now made them one of the country’s most popular breeds! We recently had this litter in at easipetcare and they are adorable!

So what is it about this breed that seems to be sending Britain ‘Frenchie’ crazy? Well according to the website ‘Mental-Floss’, it could be any of these reasons:

 

  1. The breed most likely has its roots in England
  2. Frenchies are affectionate, friendly dogs that were bred to be companions
  3. They have been proven to love a good car sing-a-long
  4. They come with two varieties of ears – rose-shaped and bat-like!
  5. Celebrities are declaring their love for this breed far and wide

Their appearance is rather unusual with their squashed snouts, big eyes and stocky physique, but their charm and bags full of character cannot be denied. What’s more, the fact that celebrities from the Beckhams to Hugh Jackman and Reese Witherspoon are often seen out and about with their Frenchie companions will of course be adding to their current popularity.

It is important to note that there are so many breeds of dog out there and dogs shouldn’t be chosen for what is popular or trendy, but by what suits the lifestyle of you and your family. There is so much information available on the internet to help you in your search, but The Kennel Club is a great place to start when considering the right breed for you.

And never forget, some of the most affectionate, loyal and loving dogs are waiting for their new life in your local rescue centre…

Best wishes as always 🙂
