absolutely hilarious; they have a very comical personality and love to clown around. It is bright and easygoing.
Curious and alert. The Frenchie gets along fairly well with strangers and other animals, but he is often bonds
strongly to one person. They play well with other dogs; some males may be dog aggressive, while others get
along with other dogs just fine. This breed needs companionship and will not thrive without it. The Frenchie
cannot be owned and ignored. They are fairly willful, but can be trained if the owner is patient. They respond
to patient, consistent training that DOES NOT include hitting or harsh jerking. They are clean, and
companionable, enthusiastic and sometimes do not know when to quite, but they are not yappy and loud. This
breed does best with older considerate children. Frenchies are easy going to show. This breed may drool and
slobber; however a good percentage of them do not. This little dog is also a ruthless hunter of mice!
