WHY DO FRENCH BULLDOGS COST SO MUCH?
Breeding French Bulldogs for rare colors such as purplish/lilac, chocolates, and blue is a complex and challenging process that requires expertise and a significant investment of time and resources. Frenchies are not easy to breed naturally due to their narrow hips, and females are often artificially inseminated. Reputable breeders must ensure that the breeding process is successful, which requires multiple visits to the veterinarian and can be costly.
Additionally, Frenchies tend to have relatively small litters, with an average of only four live births, and deliveries can be complicated due to their larger-than-average heads. As a result, most Frenchies are delivered by C-section, which is also a costly procedure. Responsible breeders must provide around-the-clock care for the mother and newborn puppies for the first several days, including monitoring feedings every 2-3 hours to ensure proper nutrition. Puppies should not be left alone with the mother, as there is a risk of accidental smothering.
In addition to these challenges, breeding Frenchies also requires significant ongoing expenses such as veterinary bills, medicines, food, toys, play areas, and shelters. When all of these factors are taken into account, breeding Frenchies for rare colors is a time-consuming and expensive endeavor. Reputable breeders understand the importance of ensuring the health and well-being of their dogs and are committed to providing the highest level of care and attention to their breeding program.
DO YOU PROVIDE PUPPY'S DELIVERY?

For clients who are out of state, we work with experienced airline attendants who can deliver your puppy safely to you on their off days.
