French Bulldog Breeders in PA: French Bulldog Owner review (Tallie and her Frenchie Phoebe)

My review won’t be about how cute and wonderful these dogs are, even though they certainly are cute and wonderful. But my own experience is that of living with an adult Frenchie who wasn’t very healthy and wasn’t very well behaved due to her past history with some very irresponsible people. Nevertheless, she became the love of my love and I love her to bits with all her issues and problems.

Phoebe is a dog that I have been literally dreaming of for years. For a few years, I have been looking at pictures of Frenchies on the internet, thinking that all I need is this cute little thing to love and spoil. As it turns out, dreams do come true. About a year ago, I found out that a friend of a friend was looking for a new home for their Frenchie. They were moving, and the dog had some behavior issues, and they couldn;t take her with them. This was how Phoebe came into my life.

Of course, it wasn’t the easiest time for Phoebe – changing owners, homes and everything. She would cry and howl and pee everywhere in the house just from the stress! But slowly we were getting used to each other and learning more about each other and she calmed down quite a bit. The peeing problem went away pretty quickly too, thankfully.

Phoebe is a dog, but sometimes I think she is more like a little pig. (I am saying this with love). She weighs around 27 pounds and runs around with all her pounds so hard that I am afraid one day she will knock me down.

At the same time, she is very affectionate and loving. She follows me around and wants to sleep in my bed and would live on my lap pretty much.

She is also very friendly with other dogs unless they are aggressive to her in which case she responds in the same vein. She’s small but she’ll growl and bark alright. Sometimes I have to interfere when she is trying to protect herself against a much larger dog all on her own.

Apart from being a little piglet, she is also like a little vacuum. She will vacuum up anything edible (and not) that is on the floor or other surfaces she can reach, especially outside. She will inhale her food when being fed and begs for treats unapologetically and can get pretty annoying. She will sit and look at you looking like she hasn’t eaten for years and you are an evil witch starving the poor puppy. Which is as far from the truth as it can be.

We are slowly working on teaching her that picking anything up from the ground is forbidden and also reducing the number of treats she is allowed on a daily basis because we really need to watch her weight.

Overall, I don’t know what behavioral problems were so bad that her previous owners gave her up. Yes there were some issues, and still are. She can chew stuff up if she’s left alone for too long. She can be needy and definitely has some separation anxiety. But all of that is minor compared to the love and companionship that she so generously gives to you.

She is relatively healthy apart from a few allergies that did give us some grief of course, because every time she ate something she shouldn’t, it’s me having to deal with diarrhea and vomiting. After a while of that, I was able to figure out what it is that doesn’t agree with her and we are mostly just fine now. I am again reminded that any issue or problem can be solved if there is just enough love and perseverance. It doesn’t mean it was easy. But if you love the animal enough you will find a way through.

Another thing she didn’t know when I just adopted her is she didn’t have any recall and it was dangerous to let her off the leash. Which was a problem because I wanted her to have the freedom of running around the park on her own (in designated places obviously). We started slowly working on her recall and eventually, she became much better with that. She does know her name and she knows she has to come when I am calling for her.

Another issue with my French Bulldog was that she thought she was the main person in the house. She really, really tried to be the dominant one. She would insist on walking everywhere ahead of me, which I have read is a sign of dominance in dogs. Yes, that tiny little piglet was trying to dominate over me!

She would also have a tantrum if I didn’t let her in my bed and displayed some other clearly dominant behaviors that I thought were unacceptable. For a while I tried to work on it using some advice I found online, but it didn’t work that well. Eventually, we found a good dog trainer who worked with her (and me) for a while teaching us both how to deal with this problem. I believe it is working, because now I get the feeling that Phoebe is looking up to me instead of the other way around.

The other thing we had to work on was her leash pulling. At first, our walks weren’t really all that fun because she’d pull all the time! And even though she’s little, she’s still quite strong, so that gets old very quickly. I don’t blame her for that. Judging by her previous owner’s behavior, they never took the time to teach her how to properly walk on the leash, so she grew up with really bad habits in that department. It took a while for me to train her out of that, using mostly positive reinforcement, because in no way did I want to add more trauma to her life. Now she is very well behaved on a leash and walking her is a great pleasure.

Overall, she is the loveliest little thing and definitely my “heart” dog. I love her to bits and would never part with her. When a dog grows up in a less than ideal situation, it’s never the dog’s fault that inevitable behavior problems crop up. I am very happy that I persevered and that Phoebe and I have gone through all of our difficulties together to now have this companionship that we both cherish.
