The French Bulldog is a compact, sturdy canine with a large square head and a rounded forehead. Their upper lips typically hang down over the lower lips where the teeth meet in an underbite. Their ears stand erect, are broad at the base, and narrow in a triangular shape with rounded tips. Their tail is either straight or corkscrew. Their body is pear-shaped with a broad chest, narrowing towards the back-end. Their medium-fine coat is short and smooth, regular brushings will do. Their skin is loose and can form wrinkles around the head and shoulders.
