Are you thinking about adopting a dog? Do you have any breeds in mind? Do you want to find the perfect dog for you?
If you are still on the fence about adopting a French bulldog, maybe we can help you make up your mind.
Here are 35 reasons why should ‘not’ adopt one.
#1 First of all, French bulldogs are not good-looking dogs.
Just look at that face! They aren’t good-looking, huh? Well, that’s because ‘cute’ is the word people would often describe them as. C’mon, you would have to have a heart of stone not to find this French bulldog adorable!
#2 Even when you dress them up in cute clothes
That’s because cute is not enough. We’d prefer to describe this gentleman in a swanky sweater as ‘dapper.’ Doesn’t he remind you of an old grandpa?
#3 See what we mean?
Now, this one may not be everybody’s cup of tea. But we’re pretty sure Paris Hilton would have dressed her French bulldog the same way if she had one. Pink, fuzzy clothes? Paris Hilton approves.
#4 And they’ll destroy your flower bed…
Don’t let French bulldogs out in your garden! They’ll destroy your flower bed because nobody will look at your flowers with this cute Frenchie near it. A flower or a Frenchie. Uh yeah, we’ll take the dog.
#5 They don’t understand humans
They’re probably just confused by your weird rituals. But we’re pretty sure they’ll get used to your own ticks and quirks in no time. They’ll love you just the same.
#6 And it seems like they don’t understand themselves either
We’ll let this one slide. We’ve all been through a similar soul-searching phase once or twice in our lives. (Your emo pictures may no longer be on Facebook, but you can never deny going through it).
#7 They don’t know how to have fun
Told you they’ll get used to your weird sense of humor. They may not have fun entertaining your follies but they surely won’t leave you hanging. Like this bulldog who agreed to wear Chuck Taylors for his human.
#8 They just sit around all day
After getting them in on your antics you better let them rest and lounge around alright. Those silly games can take a toll on such a petite puppy. Give them a break!
#9 And do this weird thing…
Their relaxation ways may be weird, but just let them do their…thing. Besides, you know you’ll have fun capturing this hilarious scene and more so you can post it on your Insta stories.
#10 Not much fans of sunbathing either
Clearly, that isn’t the case. Although they wouldn’t probably call this sunbathing especially since this French bulldog surely can’t get any more dark. Maybe it’s a relaxation thing for them similar to the way humans meditate. Hmmm…
#11 They don’t even like playing with other pets
Though it seems like the other way around, huh? Just look at this little Frenchie trying to get his buddy out of his bed to play with him. He’s even playfully taunting the kitty to chase him!
#12 They can’t enjoy the small pleasures of life like ice cream!
That’s because ice cream isn’t a little pleasure for them! It’s more than that, clearly. We’re pretty sure this cone made this dog’s entire day. Just be careful not to overfeed them. We know it can be hard not to.
#13 They absolutely hate cuddling with their humans
That’s because they prefer lying on top of your instead. Be careful with Frenchies because they’ll treat you as beds to lie on. We’re hoping this girl doesn’t need to be anywhere anytime soon.
#14 Other animals won’t even go near them
This pig clearly doesn’t mind being next to this cute ball of energy. Sure, they’re still probably just sizing each other up. But trust us, they will be having fun together in no time not minding the difference in their species.
#15 They have a particular hatred for cats
Or is it cats who have a secret hatred for them? They’re probably just jealous. Cute, charming and handsome. That’s a tough act to beat even for a cuddly kitty.
#16 See what we mean?
Whoever said that having multiple pets of different species is a bad idea was bluffing. Just look at these two furry friends! Although it probably helps that these dogs can easily befriend any animal.
#17 Not surprising since they can’t even get along with other bulldogs
But it seems like they’re most comfortable with their own kind. Better get another French bulldog to keep your current pup happy and socialized. You know what’s better than having a French bulldog? Having two French bulldogs!
#18 Their face just lacks character
Clearly, we were bluffing. Just look at that face and that dignified posture and tell us that French bulldogs lack character. Don’t lie, you know they look good.
#19 Especially when they’re sleeping
It’s amazing how this little puppy kept his goofy features slightly animated even when sleeping. We wonder what he’s dreaming about? Well, whatever it is, we’re sure it’s something good given his expression.
#20 They just don’t do interesting things like ever
That depends on your definition of what interesting is. But if you aren’t amused in the slightest by this Frenchie’s split, that’s on you and not French bulldogs.
#21 You can’t have them around your kids
That’s because they’ll hog their attention. Good luck having play time with your kids while they’re at play with such cute good boys (or girls) such as these.
#22 See? They absolutely despise cute children!
Just kidding! It’s pretty clear how much this French bulldog adores this little baby. Who could blame him anyways? That’s one adorable kid.
#23 They’re just aren’t the type to grow up with your kids
Whoever said that should see these amazing pictures. They’re clearly focusing on the negative side. French bulldogs definitely make for great growing up companions to your kids.
#24 That’s because they can’t do fun stuff together
Doesn’t this look like the absolute best Halloween ever? Unlike other dogs, this French bulldog is all in to make these themed costumes work. The perfect Robin to your son’s Batman.
#25 They can’t even smile
French bulldogs surely have smiles that can melt the hardest of hearts. Don’t tell us seeing this smirking Frenchie just doesn’t make your day a tad better. Nobody can resist a smile like this.
#26 Seriously, you can never tell when they’re happy
There’s nothing like seeing your pet happy. And the great thing about French bulldogs is that they’re very expressive unlike what some people might tell you.
Imagine waking and seeing this in the morning. Owning a French bulldog can definitely give your life the rays of sunshine you might need.
#28 It’s hard to get them around with you outside
That is, if you aren’t creative. Take advantage of their small size and make an excuse to take them with you everywhere you go. Take cues from this smart dog mother.
#29 And they find it hard to relax when at home
That’s clearly a lie. French bulldogs are some of the chillest of dog breeds. What more, they’re pretty small so you can easily cuddle with them in bed.
#30 They’re just so uptight
On the contrary, they’re pretty laidback creatures. Plop into a corner of your couch, and they’ll definitely join you to relax together. Anxious people will definitely benefit from their presence.
#31 Even when it’s their birthday
In reality, French bulldogs love celebrating their birthdays. That is, as long as they’re celebrating it with their human parents. This is another thing you should know if you’re planning to buy or adopt a Frenchie.
#32 Most importantly, you can’t dress them up for Halloween
Because they’ll steal the spotlight away from you! With this adorable Harry Potter Frenchie around nobody would be noticing what you’re wearing at all.
#33 They’re just not made to wear costumes…
…because costumes were made for them, clearly! Somebody give George Lucas a call to get this cute Darth Vader puppy do a cameo on the next Star Wars movie.
#34 It’s like nothing fits them well
It seems like everything fits them best. We never knew a couple of fabrics fashioned into capes and eye masks can look this good until we saw these two.
#35 Aye! Aye! You’ll lose every costume contest you enter them in
Are you always itching to do couple costumes for Halloween but never have someone to do it with? Get yourself a French bulldog and you’ll be winning costume contests at parties this coming Halloween.
What do you think of the reasons we gave you? Did this list convince you to finally adopt a French bulldog?
