What's In A Name: French Bulldog

The adorable Frenchie is not, as it turns out, from France. These little dogs originated in Nottingham, England, where they were popular with lace workers who kept them as companions and ratters.


After the Industrial Revolution, many of England's lace makers immigrated to France, bringing their little bat-eared pals with them. The breed then became known as the French Bulldog.
