The French Bulldog
This rather rare dog breed has a long history as a companion dog. Frenchies are smart, loving and make great show dogs. They are highly trainable, as long as you keep your instruction positive and fun, with lots of rewards.
They have low energy levels, so they don’t need lots of exercise, however, short daily walks are very good for them. They get on well with children, and their size makes them great companions for younger kids, as well.
