If you are considering getting a French Bulldog, you may wonder how big they get when they reach full adulthood. French Bulldogs are one of the most popular breeds in the world, and their small size makes them perfect for many households.
They have an average life expectancy of 10-12 years (but hopefully more), so it’s essential to understand how big they will get before making this commitment. Let’s take a look at what the full-grown size of a French Bulldog is and some other factors that can affect their growth.
How big do Frenchies get?
French Bulldogs are a relatively small breed of dog, typically weighing no more than 28 pounds (there are exceptions) and standing at no more than 12 inches tall at the shoulder. Males tend to be slightly larger than females, but overall the size remains pretty consistent. This compact size makes them perfect for small apartments or homes with limited space.
What factors affect the size of French Bulldogs?
The size of a French Bulldog can be affected by various factors, including diet and exercise, genetics, environment, and health conditions.
For instance, if your pup isn’t getting enough exercise and is eating an unhealthy diet full of processed foods or too much fat or sugar, it may grow larger than normal. On the other hand, if your pup is getting plenty of exercise and eating healthy food, they may stay on the smaller side, even as an adult.
We feed our dogs Fromm to help maintain a proper diet.
Genetics plays a vital role in determining size; if both of your Frenchie’s parents were larger than average (or smaller than average), chances are your pup will be too! As an example, Beaux, our Isabella stud Frenchie, is on the larger size of the spectrum, but when bred with smaller females, we can produce small to medium-sized beauties with exceptional DNA.
Finally, any underlying health conditions could affect your pup’s growth rate as well; if your pup has any medical issues, make sure to bring them up with your vet so you can ensure that they reach their full potential size-wise despite any obstacles along the way!
How big will my French Bulldog puppy be?
When it comes to French Bulldog puppies, they are usually somewhere between 8-10 weeks old when you bring them home. At this age, they typically weigh anywhere from 6-10 pounds and stand around 6-8 inches tall.
These little guys are still relatively small and fragile during these early stages of life, so it’s essential to handle them carefully and provide them with the proper care. It’s best to keep them separate from larger dogs to keep them safe until they grow more. With love and attention, these puppies will reach their full potential size-wise in no time!
What age are French Bulldogs fully grown?
French Bulldogs are usually considered fully grown or mature at around one year of age. Of course, some pups may be larger or smaller than average due to their genetic makeup, as mentioned, or any underlying health conditions, but generally, they will reach their full potential size-wise in around one year.
After this point, they will usually not grow any larger or exhibit much more noticeable physical changes. So even if your pup isn’t quite the same size as other Frenchies at this age, don’t worry; it likely has a slightly different genetic makeup and will become fully mature in no time!
Now that you know how big Frenchies get, it’s time to ensure that yours reaches its full potential! Make sure your Frenchie pup gets plenty of exercise and eats healthy food to stay within the standard weight range for its breed.
Also, keep an eye out for any environmental factors or medical issues that may affect its growth rate so that you can address them accordingly with your vet. With proper care and attention from you and your vet, your Frenchie will be as big (or small!) as it’s meant to be.
