Black French Bulldog Origin

Like every other Frenchie, they all originated from England in the 19th century, and Frenchies were much more different than they look today. Over the years, breeders played around with genetics which gave rise to different types of French Bulldogs.

We can’t say exactly when black Frenchies first appeared in the United States. Still, they are really popular amongst dog lovers even though they are not recognized by the American Kennel Club (AKC) and French Bulldog Club of America (FBDCA).

Black French Bulldog Price

The average price of a French bulldog puppy in the United States starts from $1,500. The price depends on varieties of features, including the color.

When getting yourself a black French bulldog puppy in the United States, be ready to spend anywhere between $2,500 to $4,000. Yes, it could be much lower, but you should have a more flexible budget to have better choices. 

A black French bulldog price (either puppy or senior) would start from $2,000 upwards, but it shouldn’t be up to $5,000, but of course, there is no fixed price. The price always depends on the breeder or the store selling the dog.

If that’s too expensive for you, consider adopting one. It might take a while to find the exact color of the Frenchie, but typically, you would pay less than $1,000 for a rescue puppy/senior Frenchie.

In the UK, you can expect to start paying anywhere from £1,000 to as much as over £2,000 for a black Frenchie.

Do Black French Bulldogs have Health Problems?

Yes, they have health problems, and I am talking about all Black French Bulldogs. Out of all types of Frenchies, the black French Bulldog has the worst health problems, and the sole reason is a result of the dominant black gene found in them.

One of the most common health issues they do have later on is deafness and eye problems. Some do later have skin issues also, so if you are considering buying a black Frenchie just because it looks fancy. You should re-evaluate your decision.

Nevertheless, some of their health issues are not associated with their gene but are just common health issues all French Bulldogs are prone to.


The Black French Bulldog is a great choice, and personally, as a dog lover (especially the Frenchie breed), I would pick a black Frenchie, of course. 

For me, this color breed of french bulldogs displays the sophistication absent in other colored Frenchies. Others may disagree with my opinion, but everything depends on personal preference.

Many people might want something else and prefer something cuter. I understand this isn’t a Doberman Pinscher, as many dog lovers with my taste would edge towards this kind of dog breed. 

If you are looking for something small, black french bulldogs are a good pick also, and you should consider them.
