7 Things You Didn’t Know About The Blue Frenchie

April 12, 2018

Fun Facts About The Blue Frenchie

Say what? Contrary to their name, the Blue Frenchie doesn’t have French origins at all. This is always a surprising fact for many Blue Frenchie owners. They are actually the sisters to English Bulldogs, who hail from a small area in England called Nottingham. It’s widely unknown why or how they got their names, but it’s also widely agreed upon that they aren’t from France.

The Blue Frenchie is not a good swimmer. They don’t do well in water at all and they don’t like it either. There are plenty of dogs that innately are great swimmers and love the water, but the Blue Frenchie isn’t one of them! They prefer the dry land, period.

The Blue Frenchie is not recognized by any dog breeder associations. You can not show or train a Blue Frenchie in any competitions, strictly because of their color. The only French Bulldogs allowed in shows are those with the color palettes of brindle, white, fawn, or a combination of white and brindle.

Because of their single coat, they can become cold very easily. You’ll notice a Blue Frenchie constantly curled up in a tight warm ball during the winter or when air conditioners are furiously running during the summer. Invest in some sweaters or t-shirts for these babies, as they’ll happily comfortably sport them all year ‘round!

Upon one glance, you can notice their flat faces. Unfortunately, this means that they have very labored and audible breathing patterns. It’s called brachycephalic. The Blue Frenchie is not a quiet dog! You’ll often here them when they’re just being and breathing and certainly when they’re sleeping. Invest in some earplugs, because despite their small size, they are big snorters!

The only difference between a regular French Bulldog and the Blue Frenchie is the color, which makes for the largest difference…the price! They are almost twice as much as the price of the “regular” French Bulldog. The Blue Frenchie is much more difficult to find. They cost a lot more money to maintain physically, because of their serious health issues, especially because of their allergies. They also have other neck and back issues, due to their short and curved spines. If they have an allergic reaction, a typical vet visit can run you anywhere from $300 – $700.

Blue Frenchies are not very active dogs, nor do they require it to be happy and healthy. They aren’t prone to obesity. They like to just chill, typically with you. They’ll enjoy a nice walk or a few moments outside, but then back to the couch to cuddle they go!
