French Bulldog Characteristics
French Bulldogs – or “Frenchies” – are one of the most popular small dog breeds, and it’s easy to see why! They are picture-perfect, with giant dewy eyes, stocky little bodies, and adorably large ears. They’re also suitable for apartments and city-dwellers as they only require a small amount of daily exercise. Frenchies are playful with a gentle nature. They are happy to spend all day cuddled at your feet while serving as excellent watchdogs.
French Bulldogs are a purebred dog breed that originated in England. They have smooth, shiny coats that come in white, fawn, black, grey and cream. They are moderate shedders and will require occasional grooming to stay clean.
Frenchies are known for spending their days relaxing around the house, loving nothing more than a nap with their family. As much as they love to snuggle on your lap, they are also energetic and love to play. This combo of a snuggly and playful nature make them wonderful companions.
Not a working dog, French Bulldogs have lower exercise needs than other breeds. They are more prone to heat exhaustion and can get by with a simple 15-minute walk each day.
With their front-heavy structure, Frenchies are also not the best swimmers. So you’ll want to avoid leaving them unattended around water!
French Bulldogs are also highly intelligent, but a little bit stubborn. Training them is relatively easy if you approach it with patience. They respond well to positive reinforcement and lots of treats.
French Bulldogs are small but sturdy. They have a powerful, muscular body and weigh up to 28 pounds. Frenchies grow to 11 to 13 inches in height. The breed is generally healthy and enjoys a typical lifespan of 12 to 18 years.
How dog-friendly is New Mexico?
New Mexico has some room to grow when it comes to its animal-friendly laws and accommodations. On the plus side, a few New Mexico cities are super dog-friendly, and the state is a great destination for visitors traveling with their pups.
Let’s look at a few studies into New Mexico’s dog-friendly rankings.
Animal advocacy group Pawsafe ranked New Mexico as the 35th most pet-friendly state of all 50 states. They examined several factors, including animal cruelty laws, pet-friendly accommodations, and the number of dog parks and hiking trails. Unfortunately, they didn’t rank New Mexico very well for its animal welfare laws, which address things like animal abuse, neglect, or even fighting.
Another study by a safety review website, Safewise, actually ranked New Mexico last of all 50 states. The ranking has a lot to do with animal welfare laws and access to pet services.
Overall, we’re hopeful that New Mexico makes some improvements for its dogs and dog lovers!
Are cities in New Mexico pet-friendly?
Yes! The good news is that New Mexico has some great pet-friendly destinations. A study by Wallethub ranked the 100 largest cities in the country by their pet-friendliness. Here’s how New Mexico’s biggest city stacked up.
Albuquerque is the biggest city in New Mexico with a little over half a million people. The city ranked very well at 14th out of 100 cities.
They placed 16th for pet budget and 7th for outdoor pet-friendliness. The city lagged behind a bit for pet health and wellness, ranking 83rd.
A separate study by the Trust for Public Land (TPL) shares great information about dog parks. They published a ranking of the 100 largest cities to see which has the most dog parks per capita. Albuquerque ranked well in the 13th spot with 2.4 dog parks per 100,000 people.
Two of the best places to bring your pup to in Albuquerque are ABQ Trolley Co. and USS Bullhead Park.
