We get so many requests for pictures of Dallas, so here are some more!!
(but don't tell her, it will go to her head)
Bringing home a new baby French Bulldog will probably be one of the most exciting things you will ever do in your life ;). I know that my wonderful families are eager to prepare for their new puppies before their arrival, and I provide them with a list of things I feel are essential to maintaining a happy healthy French Bulldog.
Litter Box Training
Bathing and Shampoo
Libby and Teddy are now proud parents of this adorable litter of 5 frenchie babies. We had 3 females and 2 males. Mom did a great job and is very protective of the little ones and never wants to leave their side.
Libby is our beautiful fawn girl from a champion Hungarian bloodline. We expect to breed her in the fall of 2019. She is such a sweetheart and is extremely laid back. Here she is on our trip to Gettysburg.
We were blessed when Dallas had a litter of 7 healthy puppies on September 29th, 2018. She had a planned c-section, as this is the safest option for Frenchie moms and their puppies. I can’t say enough wonderful things about Dr. Weisgerber and the staff at Beechwold Veterinary Hospital, as they provide top-level care for our Frenchies.
The structure and personalities these puppies have is absolutely amazing. We were able to match each puppy with the perfect home to fit their personality. Some puppies are staying in Ohio, while others will be permanent New Yorkers. While it is a bit of a downer to let them go, I feel confident that they will be well-loved members of their new homes.
Most of the puppies in this litter were spoken for before they were born. If you have a particular gender or color you feel strongly about I encourage you to inquire about the wait list for our spring litter, with our fawn girl Liberty, immediately. I allow 6 reservation spots for each litter. After the holidays I will be contacting those who were not able to get a puppy from this litter about reserving for spring. Happy Holidays!
We are beyond excited to bring Scout into our breeding program! She is sired by a champion line and has an amazing personality. She is a very laid-back girl that enjoys people. She does "Frenchie-speak" but we have yet to hear her bark. She is a natural with other dogs, and is quickly able to read their personality and comfort level. I can't wait to have her certified as a therapy dog!
I had a strong desire to add a solid cream girl to our breeding program. Cream is a standard color in the French bulldog world, and I have high hopes that she could produce show potential pups that would also possess a wonderful personality!
Dallas is such a wonderful Frenchie!
Her personality is amazing. She's a quiet people-pleaser and has even served as an emotional support animal. Remaining calm and well behaved during five hour flights is a testament to her temperament.
If you are interested in joining the wait list for her litter please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
My background and Why I chose to Breed French Bulldogs
I spent 10 years working with animals and the public as an educator and animal handler at the #1 zoo in the country. During my time there, I learned the dedication and science of breeding animals and what goes into responsible reproduction. While working for the zoo I pursued my master's degree in zoology in a program developed by Miami University that was operated and implemented at the Cincinnati Zoo. During this time I had the unique opportunity to work with and learn from the Center for Research of Endangered Wildlife. The focus of the organization, and my master's programs was to create better technology and programming to improve genetic diversity in endangered plant and animal species.
There are many parallels between that grad research and breeding French bulldogs. The pool of genetically strong and desirable Frenchies gets fewer and fewer as more irresponsible breeders enter the breeding world, and legitimate well-educated breeders leave. Health testing for genetic diseases is only one aspect of breeding responsibly. The structure of their face and body is a very important factor in whether your Frenchie will live a long, healthy life.
It is my passion to produce only the healthiest of dogs. In addition to being healthy, I find it equally important to breed for temperament. There has been a great deal of research done that has concluded that many behavior traits have a genetic basis. Studies have shown that shyness, fearfulness, and boldness (aggression) are heritable. I only intake Frenchies into my breeding program that can pass the basic therapy dog assessment, and puppies/future possible breeding dogs that show a high aptitude for intelligence. I follow the same standards in selecting puppies that are used to determine if a puppy is likely to be successful for training as a service animal.
