Each bolded word below is a reason for why a French Bulldog is a popular breed and each paragraph below goes into further detail on that reason. This post also shows the history of the French Bulldog breed.


French Bulldogs are among the 10 most popular dog breeds (2016), along with the poodle, the boxer, the Yorkshire Terrier (Yorkie), and a few others. French Bulldogs are a popular dog breed because they are low maintenance breed, they are a small dog breed, everyone loves a cute flat faced dog, and Frenchies are taking over Instagram which makes it hard to escape their cuteness.

Low – Maintenance 

French Bulldogs are a low maintenance breed. Just make sure that your frenchie’s wrinkles are dry and free moisture, in order to keep them clean. But every dog needs to bath and groomed a least every few months (depending on the breed.)

Frenchies a small dog breed

Frenchies are a small dog breed, that is what makes the French Bulldog the perfect “hand bag” dog. Because of there size they are perfect for people who live in apartments or in the city.

Who doesn’t love a cute flat faced dog breed?

Everyone loves flat faced dog breeds such as, the pug, the english bulldog, the Boston terrier, and of course the French Bulldog. Although many people love the flat faced breeds,  a dog’s flat face can lead to respiratory (breathing) problems.

French Bulldogs have taken over the “dog side” of Instagram.

They have really taken over Instagram with their cuteness.

Popular Dog Breeds: Introduction

Popular Dog Breeds


There are over 300 different purebred dog breeds, such as the poodle, the french bulldog, the great dane, the pug, and many many others. But that is not even counting mixed dog breeds, such as labradoodles, golden doodlesmaltipoos, and puggles.

A majority of mixed dog breeds have part poodle, because people think that they will get a *hypoallergenic dog. For example to make a labradoodle you need poodle and labrador DNA in the dog to consider it a labradoodle. The labrador is a shedding dog while the poodle is *hypoallergenic, so when you cross them the puppies **should turn out *hypoallergenic. Many people love poodles or poodle mixes because they are usually *hypoallergenic.

If you are allergic to dogs but you want one you should consider a poodle mix, or a poodle.

We will be writing about the most popular dog breeds, and not just the purebreds, but the known mixes, and maybe even a few mutts too.

Each post will be titled for example: Popular Dog Breeds: French Bulldog

Thanks for reading this post! We hope you enjoy our popular dog breeds posts.


*Dogs that are hypoallergenic still shed dandruff.
**If the dog is mixed with many other dog breeds then it may be hard for the poodle gene to be “seen” in the dog.  Because it is cross with many many other dogs breeds the poodle gene may be lost in the dogs DNA; therefore the dog will probably not be hypoallergenic.

Which one to choose: Purebred or Mutts?

When it comes to choosing if you want a purebred dog or a mutt there are pros and cons on both sides.

PUREBRED

Pros:

  • You know for sure what their breed is
  • You have a better chance of determining their size
  • You can know for sure if they are hypoallergenic or not

Cons:

  • Costs more money than mutts
  • You won’t have the fun of guessing their breed
  • If you don’t get a purebred from a shelter then you won’t be saving a dog’s life

If you want to pay less for a purebred dog then you might want to check out your local shelter. Did you know that 1/3 of dogs surrendered in shelters are purebreds?

MUTTS

Pros:

  • You can have fun guessing your dogs breed
  • You have saved a dog’s life if you adopted it
  • You have a mutt, the combination of many dog breeds, that is very unique

Cons:

  • You don’t know the dogs ancestry for sure
  • You probably don’t know the size your dog will be
  • You don’t know if you may end up being allergic to them or not

What are the qualities of a perfect animal photo?

❤️🐶🐱🐭🐹🐰🐻🐼🐨🐯🦁🐮🐷🐸🐙🐵🐔🐦🐤🐺🐴🐍🐢🐬🐡🐟🐠🐆🐐🐘🐳🐑🐿❤️


As you know we love animals. We take photos of them to share our love for them. That’s why The Tween Dogist Instagram was created. We take photos of your pet(s) for memories that will last forever. Each moment caught on camera is a permanent memory, but just a instant of that memory.

That’s the main reason why we take photos of our pets. That’s this blog post was created to show you the qualities of a perfect pet photo.

Photo Quality


Quality is what matters most while taking the photo.

Make sure you photo is not blurry. If it’s blurry because that’s how it focuses then that’s fine. I suggest using a professional camera if you want it to be the best quality possible.

The Pet’s Body Positioning


It definitely matters what the pet’s body position is. If the pet was turned around that probably wouldn’t be the best photo possible, because you can’t see it’s facial expression. Facial expressions are important in photos because they show how that pet feels in that instant. So, if the pet was facing you then you can see how the pet feels in that instant, are they excited, are they a bit scared.

Get Down to Your Pet’s Level


If you get down to your pets level you will probably have a better photo than if you are standing and taking a photo them.

For example

This is a picture of Isabella while I’m standing

And this is a photo of her when I’m at her level

See, when you are at the dog’s level you get a better photo with more detail. It also doesn’t look like you are looking down at your pet.

Know the qualities of a perfect photo? Now you can learn how to take the perfect photo of your pet (I used a dog as an example) by reading this post “How to take the best dog photos.”

My dog drawings

My dog drawings


I have done many dog drawings. Most of them I usually do with crayon.

Here are some of my dog drawings:

How I draw dogs:

Step 1. I search up a picture of the dog I want to draw. I usually draw dogs I’ve taken photos of for my instagram. The photo below is one that I’ve taken.
