My husband and I started talking about what dog we wanted to get next (won't happen for another 5 years or so), and brought up an English Bulldog, but I've always wanted a French Bulldog. He wants an English b/c he says they don't bark and they're calm. I want a Frenchie because they're cute as a button and my aunt had one that I was in love with growing up.

Does anyone know a lot about both English and French Bulldogs? I'd love to see a comparision list between the two breeds covering things like common health problems, temperments, and any other oddities either breed has (like English bulldogs drooling/slobbering and Frenchies passing gas). Thanks in advance!

I don't know much about Frenchies besides the fact that they have big adorable ears. But I love this site for bulldog information.

FYI - My bully barks and is not calm lol. Dont make assumptions about a dog because of a list. It's the same as stereotyping people. If it were me I'ld look for good breeders of each type and visit with them.
