French Bulldog Breed History
The French Bulldog was first recognized by the AKC in 1898. Since then, the Frenchie has been included as a breed by several kennel clubs, each with a slightly different breed standard. The breed is said to have derived of the toy English Bulldogs, which were in abundance in England around 1860.
