The French Bulldog originated in 19th Century Nottingham, England where Lace makers decided to make a smaller, miniature, lap version of the English Bulldog was referred to as “toy” bulldogs. In the 1860’s when the Industrial Revolution drove the craftsmen to France they took their dogs with them. The toy bulldogs became popular in France and were given the name “French Bulldog”. The breed eventually made its way back to England for dog shows. The Brits were not happy with the name “French” given to a dog that was originally from England. But the name “French Bulldog” stuck.
