    Confused and new to the breed

    Hi all! First off I have been researching the breed for awhile now and after we lost our boxer we decided to find a reputable french bulldog breeder and put down our deposit once we were approved. The puppy just turned 4 weeks old today and I'm concerned about her size. She's 2.5 lbs but she seems so small. My husband seems to think its because I'm used to the boxer size and I tend to overly worry about my animals. Does she look like a normal frenchie puppy? I have googled and looked through so many pictures online that my head is spinning. I don't want to offend the breeder but I'm so nervous. Our boxer we just lost..it was a very rough 13 yrs for him and us and I'm so worried with her size that something could be wrong. -21182-jpeg

    My female only weighed 3.6lbs at 8 weeks old and she seems perfectly healthy. She is now a little over a year old and weighs around 13lbs. I should also add she was the smallest of her liter. What she lacks in size she more than makes up for it with attitude.

    Ty! I am still learning so much about frenchies. Our boxer was the smallest of the litter and we had never ending health problems with him from seizures to cardiomyopathy. I just had no idea what the normal looked like for a french bulldog puppy at her age.

    Hi there! Welcome..

    You have her already at 4.5 weeks? That is so young to be away from momma already. If you are still pending and she is with Momma, give her time . 8 weeks is the early point a pup should leave mom.

    Does she look walleyed? Is 4 weeks too soon to tell? I googled 4 week old french bulldogs and was blown away at how much smaller she looked and then I started to get nervous.

    Re: Confused and new to the breed

    Hi Frenchiemomma,
    It's always nice to find another Boxer lover! ;-) I've had them all my adult life. Our last one passed 6 months ago, so now we just have Daphne, our Frenchie, and two cats. I'm sorry to hear that you had so many health issues with your Boxer. I hope your Frenchie pup brings you lots of love and joy.

    Re: Confused and new to the breed

    Hi FroxerMom! Ty everyone for the reassurance. I am so nervous because I'm so new to this breed and not sure what to look for. I was just sent a video of her and she will be 5 weeks Monday. Am I allowed to post YouTube links? I uploaded the video to my YouTube. My husband is so worried how small she is. July 27, 2020 - YouTube
