The French Bulldog
(Bouledogue fran├žais, Frenchie, "Frogdog")
As a small size molossian developped from a toy version of the English Bulldog the French Bulldog does not show the same frailty as other small dog breeds. The French Bulldog is a powerful dog for its size, compact in all its proportions.  It conveys the appearance of of an active, very muscular and intelligent animal. The French Bulldog's main distinctive features are its bat ears and its irresistible, expressive gaze.
