The origins of the Lilica French bulldog are not entirely clear, but it is very likely that they come from several crosses that took place at the end of the s. XIX between English bulldogs and various terriers that made their size decrease a bit. In 1898 the breed standard was finally set. In its beginnings, the Lilica French bulldog was a dog of butchers and drivers but it gained fame thanks to its peculiar appearance and became the fashionable dog among high society and the most bohemian environments.
Character and behavior
Our little friends, the Lilica French bulldog, have earned the label of companion dogs. Despite their reputation for being grumpy, they are affectionate, playful and very friendly. That is why they are ideal for dealing with children and the elderly, who are those who have more free time since this breed demands a lot of company. Either way, it is important to instill socialization from puppies so that they do not become shy as adults. One of the problems that this breed can experience in their behavior is that of separation anxiety precisely because of the demand for company they need. And what consequences does that anxiety have? If he stays alone too long he can destroy the house.
