Sonic is a handsome 32-pound one-year-old pitbull. He is friendly, loving, and adores being with people. Sonic loves to talk and will amuse you with his grumbling. Presently, he needs surgery for an elongated palate. Because of his palate, he has difficulty breathing when he gets excited or hot. We are asking for donations for his surgery. When the surgery is completed, he will be looking for a home where he will be the only pet. Come out and talk with Sonic; he will be thrilled.
French bulldogs, commonly known as Frenchies, have become the second most popular dog breed in America. The number one breed for the past 30 years is the Labrador retriever. Frenchies’ are the new “it” breed of the 21st century, and their popularity is steadily rising.
Marketed as the dog that best suits the lifestyles of the rich and homebound, they only weigh about 20 pounds and are the perfect size for carry-on luggage. Frenchies’ squat figures, flat faces, and outsized bat ears give them an overall adorable appeal.
These pups are popular in cities like New York and San Francisco, because they don’t need much exercise and can be potty trained to go on pee pads, in litter boxes, and on turf grass that can fit in an apartment or on a balcony. This eliminates the problem of getting access to the outdoors.
Unfortunately, Frenchies’ are exorbitantly expensive. They can easily cost up to $5,000.
Part of the reason for the high price tag is that the puppies’ heads are so large that they require delivery via C-section, which is an expensive procedure.
Dogs with flat faces are part of the brachycephalic breed. Bulldogs belong to this breed. There are three types of bulldogs, English, American, and French. Overheating is a problem for this breed and respiratory problems are common. It is important to monitor bulldogs to avoid overheating and overexcitement.
Frenchies’ are the direct result of breeding for appearance. Their expressive faces with large ears and eyes make it seem like they are paying attention to us. They smile and their grumblings mimic human speech.
The Frenchies’ have quickly become a status symbol because of their cost and appearance. Most importantly, they are the
sweetest of all French imports. Viva la Frenchie!LOOKING FOR A HOME
