This clown of a dog enjoys playing as well as cuddling. It tends to snore, wheeze, and drool.
With his bat-like ears, the Frenchie was well established in France in the late 1800s and became popular among the upper class. Today, these clowns make great family pets as they love to play as well as cuddle. They are easygoing, caring, and loving. They may be wary of meeting new strangers, however they get along great with other pets. They make great apartment dogs as they require little exercise daily. These dogs can make a great companion for just about anyone, so long as they don't live in hot weather as they cannot easily cool down. They are also incapable of swimming. Frenchies sometimes snore and wheeze and don't bark too often. Grooming their coat is minimal, however their facial wrinkles need regular cleaning.
