Welcome to Bully Creek Kennels. We are a small breeder with French Bulldog Puppies for sale in Alabama and surrounding areas. We raise quality French Bulldogs and breed to the AKC standard. Our goal is to improve the breed, produce show potential Frenchies and wonderful companions. All of our litters are carefully planned and we focus on health, temperament and conformation.
If you are new to the breed then be forewarned..the Frenchie is an addictive dog! I think their sole purpose in life is to make people laugh (and be pampered of course). They are a very easy-going breed, require only a small amount of exercise and are happy anywhere from the farm to an apartment. They are a brachycephalic breed, which means that they are flat-faced and have a harder time breathing than dogs with more of a snout, so care should be taken in hot weather. They can't cool themselves very efficiently and can over heat quickly, which means that they must live indoors. They are a very intelligent dog but can be a bit...lets say persistent (its a nicer word than stubborn) and can sometimes be harder to train than other breeds. They were bred to be a companion dog and are happiest when by the side of their owner. Make sure you do your research and become familiar with all of the health concerns that come with the breed. Well bred Frenchies don't usually have severe issues, but they are genetically predisposed, like all pure bred dogs, to several conditions. The fact that they are considered both Brachycephalic (short faced) and Chondrodysplastic (dwarf) can cause issues to pop up in even the best bred dogs. Below is a rundown of some common things that come up when researching French Bulldogs:
They snore (also very true, they actually produce a
multitude of odd noises, such as snorting and "yodeling" so if you like it quiet you may want to reconsider).
They require a lot of attention (very true, be prepared
to spend your time at home with a frenchie under foot
everywhere you go, they hate to be left out and think
that the only reason you sit or lay down is to give them
They fart (unfortunately true as well, they are also
known to burp and occasionally throw up, although a good quality food and limiting physical exertion after eating can minimize this somewhat).
They have allergies (thank goodness we don't
experience allergies with our dogs, but have knownplenty of Frenchies that suffer from them...so true).
They are stubborn (as I mentioned above, true.
Although very intelligent they can be hard to train and it takes a lot of patience and persistence).
They can't swim (true, their build and muscularity
make it almost impossible for them to swim for any
distance. They may start out good but it goes badly
quick for them. Worst part is they love water and
usually don't realize they can't swim).
They are clowns (most definitely true, they are happy,
silly, weird little characters that will make you laugh
even through the stubborness, snoring, flatulence,
neediness and other oddities that come with Frenchie
ownership. Crazy as it sounds you will wonder how
you survived without them and will never want to
without one again).
All in all they are a fantastic breed, not for everyone, but we are definitely hooked
