Are French Bulldogs good companion dogs?

According to the French Bulldog Club of America and to us, they are fantastic companions.  They are fun to be around as they are always doing cute and amusing things, in fact they are downright funny which is why they are sometimes called the clown prince of the dog world.   When they are not doing interesting things, they are very content to lie in your lap, on the floor by your feet, or in their kennel.

As you can see from the above pictures, they are WONDERFUL with children! They can have their ears tugged on or be poked or rolled on, and they take it in stride. They become very protective of babies and little ones.

Your new Frenchie will love you, as all of ours do us, and will want to be around you as much as possible; although, fortunately, they are not clingy (like our Golden Retrievers and a few of our other dogs used to be).   When you want to pet and shower your Frenchie with attention, he or she will be there for you.   But, when you want a break they will lie close by and be content just to be near you.  What more could you ask for?
