    An excellent resource to learn about this wonderful breed

    Small, opinionated, and with a face to die for, these are traits of the French Bulldog. But this distinctive breed is so much more than a pretty face and in this new book, part of the Barron's Breed Profiles series, you'll learn enough about the French Bulldog to make an educated decision on whether this is the right breed for you. Written by long time French Bulldog breeder and second president of the International French Bulldog Club, Susanne Saller-Schneider, the author's love of the breed comes through on each and every page. Clear and concise, there is a plethora of information within the pages of this book. After learning the history of this noble breed, how they are descended from enormous Molossers (solid, very large dogs), the author follows the breed's development through the years and the various countries where the French Bulldog can trace its roots. Next up in this breed profile is a look at the French Bulldog as it is today, and then the reader gets to follow a puppy through its early development. Other chapters include: Free Time With A Frenchy, The Healthy Frenchy and Health Care and Illnesses. Within these chapters the author covers such topics as showing your dog, early training, and how to choose the right veterinarian. The author is to be commended for making it clear that while the French Bulldog is a wonderful breed, certain characteristics may keep it from being a perfect fit with some people and/or households. A lover of children, the Frenchy will likely bond quickly with yougsters in your home. However, if you are looking for a hiking companion, this dog may not be right for you. Other interesting facts include how French Bulldogs interact with other dogs and the unique problems the breed's appearance may pose (extremely short tail renders it almost "wagless," thus making it difficult for other dogs to read their emotions, while their heavy breathing might be interpreted as aggressiveness). No review of this book would be complete without mentioning the fabulous photographs found on each and every page. From the adorable puppies just begging to be picked up to the Frenchy playing on the beach with his owner, the photography is a visual treat and adds much to the reader's understanding of this unique breed. Quill says: An excellent book to help the prospective French Bulldog owner decide if one of these irresistible dogs will truly be the perfect fit for their home.
