Welcome to Bellerose French Bulldogs!   We are planning four litters in the winter 2015-2016 season.  One of our cream girls has been bred, and we are expecting her babies to arrive in mid-November. 

When you inquire, we will let you know the status of our waiting list.  While I realize french bulldogs are very expensive and you have every right to get exactly what you want, I believe that color should be the least important aspect of such an important purchase. Health and temperament should be of the utmost importance. Potential clients are asked to provide a first and second choice color preference, and we will make every attempt to provide you with your primary preference. 
We ask that all of our puppy owners be educated on the specific needs of a French bulldog and have the time and means to care for your new baby properly. Frenchies are typically not for beginners. They can be a bit stubborn and their need to be with their owners ALL the time is not to be underestimated.  Frenchies left alone get extremely lonely, so I recommend highly that you plan to enroll your baby in doggy daycare if you work full time.  This also really helps with proper socializing.  
All of our pet quality French bulldogs are sold on a limited registration - meaning they are to be spayed/neutered and never to be used for breeding purposes.   If you are interested in a show prospect/breeding puppy, please call me so we can discuss particulars. Our puppies are raised as a part of our family, in their very own puppy room, so they experience all the sights and sounds of a normal busy household.  We hold and play with them throughout the day, and when they are old enough, they follow me around the house while I am doing my chores.  Needless to say, we get extremely attached to our babies and are very selective about where they go to live their lives.

I recently had a family who was getting close to bringing home their frenchie (they had been on my waiting list several months) suddenly bring home a Newfoundland puppy. Unfortunately they did not consult me before they did this, and I had to refuse to sell this family a frenchie until their Newfie puppy was a year old and properly trained.  Frenchies in general are very compatible with other breed dogs, but an enormous puppy like a Newfie is clumsy and they don't know how to be gentle so the chance of our frenchie baby getting hurt would have been extremely high. My co-breeder (a veterinarian) said it was an accident waiting to happen and advised strongly against it.  So please know that if you want to bring home one of our puppies, please do not also plan on bringing home another large breed puppy at the same time. If you already own a large dog(s), please let me know how many and the breed. All of these placements are considered on a case by case basis.  Along these lines, I typically ask for contact information for your current veterinarian, and the breeder you purchased your previous or current dogs from.  If you rent, I will need your landlord's contact information as well.  

Once you have placed a deposit and are on our waiting list, I will keep you up-to-date on when our girls are being bred, when the puppies are born, and when they are likely to be ready to go home to you.  Once you have a general idea of when you will be expecting your baby, please be 100% prepared to take your baby home when it is approximately 9-12 weeks old and spend the time they need to ease the stressful transition, be properly socialized and trained properly.  It is a commitment not to be taken lightly, as it can be a HUGE undertaking and sometimes quite frustrating. (Take it from me, as I write this I have just finished putting the puppy room back together after being completely destroyed overnight by two 4 month old frenchies who are very, very naughty indeed!)
Because it is important to us to make the transition from my home to yours as stress free as possible, I will not ship unaccompanied puppies to their new homes. In fact, most airlines no longer accept french bulldogs as cargo which I wholeheartedly agree with.  I quite often fly or drive to deliver puppies personally as this allows me to see/approve where they are going to live. 

I know it may seem like we ask a lot of those wanting one of our babies, but we love them very much and want only the best homes for them.  Thank you very much for understanding.  

If you find our requirements acceptable, I am very happy to email you a contract for review and schedule an appointment to have you come meet me and the dogs.

Please email me at bellerosekennels@msn.com.  I look forward to answering any questions you may have.
