CUTE SQUISHY FACE
What is a French Bulldog, aka bat pig?"From: https://www.akc.org/dog-breeds/french-bulldog/ The French Bulldog resembles a Bulldog in miniature, except for the large, erect “bat ears” that are the breed’s trademark feature. The head is large and square, with heavy wrinkles rolled above the extremely short nose. The body beneath the smooth, brilliant coat is compact and muscular. The bright, affectionate Frenchie is a charmer. Dogs of few words, Frenchies don’t bark much—but their alertness makes them excellent watchdogs. They happily adapt to life with singles, couples, or families, and do not require a lot of outdoor exercise. They get on well with other animals and enjoy making new friends of the human variety. It is no wonder that city folk from Paris to Peoria swear by this vastly amusing and companionable breed.
Your Puppy's first few daysIt's exciting for you but it can be a terrifying experience for your new baby. Imagine everything you've known your whole life has suddenly changed and you're in the company of strangers! It's understandable that some pups will stress out more than others. This can manifest in stress runs. Take care not overfeed as they are adjusting to the environment and especially if you've switched to a new dog food. A small amount of pure pumpkin puree may help as well. Your new baby might cry in the beginning and this is perfectly normal. It's always suggested that you spend as much time as you can to bond with your puppy and get them used to your routine / schedule from the get go. It may also be tempting to take them outside and show them off to the world but the little ones probably haven't built up their immunities yet. Be careful not to exposed them to areas where many dogs frequent until they've had all of their shots. Ask strangers to wash their hands before petting your sweet baby. Last but not least, take your pup to your vet to get an general health check. Sure your pup comes with a health guarantee but that's no excuse to skip this important step. Your vet will be your pal with this sensitive breed.
