DOGS AUSTRALIA: FRENCH BULLDOG BREED STANDARD - AMENDMENT
We have received advice that the Kennel Club (UK) has amended the breed standard for the French Bulldog and the following changes have been confirmed by the National Breed Standards Coordination Group Chairperson, Marie Merchant.
Head And Skull:
Head square in appearance and in proportion to dog’s size. Skull nearly flat between ears, domed forehead. The skin covering the skull and forehead should be supple enough to allow fine wrinkling when the dog is alert. Well defined muzzle, that can clearly be viewed in profile, broad, deep and set back, muscles of cheeks well developed. Stop well defined. Lower jaw deep, square, broad, slightly undershot and turned up. Nose black and wide, relatively short, with visibly open nostrils and line between well defined. Lips black, thick, meeting each other in centre, completely hiding teeth. Upper lip covers lower on each side with plenty of cushion, never so exaggerated as to hang too much below level of lower jaw.
Preferably dark and matching. Moderate size, round, neither sunken or prominent, showing no white when looking straight forward; set moderately relatively wide apart and on the same level as the stop.
Powerful, well-arched and thick, of moderate length.
[The word “thick” is removed]
Undocked, short, set low. Thick at root, tapering quickly towards tip, preferably straight and long enough to cover anus. Never curling over back no carried gaily.
[The word “short” is removed]
We are arranging for our website to be updated accordingly.
