According to research by frenchiejourney, French Bulldogs are the second-most popular dog breed in America, coming after the Labrador Retriever, which has maintained first place for over 30 years.

The research also found that the average weight of a female French Bulldog is between 17 to 24 pounds, while the males range between 20 to 28 pounds, and their weight should not exceed 28 pounds.

The average French Bulldog height measurements are usually about 11 to 12 inches tall for a healthy adult both male and female, and they typically attain their maximum height once fully grown at 9 to 12 months old.

"A typical French bulldog lives for a period of between 10 and 12 years, which compared to other typical dog breeds, this is a fairly average life span," the study also found.
