So you’ve decided you want to adopt a French bulldog. Congrats! You’re one of thousands of people who have decided to take the leap and bring a Frenchie into their family.
Now, the only problem is where to find one. The breed is notoriously expensive, and choosing one with a great pedigree reduces the risk that your pup will experience health issues as they grow older.
But as they say, where there’s a will there’s a way. Here’s what you need to know about the best places to buy a French bulldog in southern California.
1. From a breeder registered with the American Kennel Club (AKC)
If you’re planning on buying a Frenchie directly from a breeder, you’ll want to check (and double-check) that they’re registered with the AKC. Why? Those that aren’t are most likely subjecting their animals to cruel and potentially lethal living conditions. Not only is that generally cruel, it also means that any animal adopted from them is much more likely to have health problems now or in the future.
So by avoiding those breeders, you save yourself an immense amount of time and money while also supporting ethical breeders.
To find a reputable breeder through the AKC, all you need to do is visit the Online Breeder Classifieds page on the organization’s website. Alternatively, you can call AKC directly and they will be able to put you in contact with breeders in your area.
2. From a reputable French bulldog rescue network
Of course, not everyone can afford to adopt a Frenchie through the traditional means. Their high price tag only reflects the huge amount of time, effort, and money it takes to raise pedigreed French bulldogs.
If you land in this category, don’t worry. There are still other options available to you.
Consider rescuing a French bulldog from one of these organizations:
One other thing to note: If a breeder offers you a Frenchie for a wildly discounted price, it’s probably too good to be true. No reputable breeder would put in all of the effort they do only to sell their puppies for pennies on the dollar.
If you want a best friend that’ll stay by your side for years and years to come, choose reputable breeders and organizations every single time.
