Nonetheless, there are several creative ways you can get a Frenchie puppy with little to no money down and we took the time to explore options and share this valuable info with you.

WHY ARE FRENCH BULLDOGS SO EXPENSIVE?

WHY ARE FRENCH BULLDOGS SO EXPENSIVE?

Have you ever seen a Frenchie sold for $100,000?  A very fine show quality French Bulldog can cost that much.

The high price tag reflects the expense per Frenchie puppy birth of artificial insemination, c-sections, constant care when they are born and multiple health and genetic exams.

Why are French Bulldogs more expensive than any other dog breed? Most Frenchies can't have live babies the normal way. Here are some general figures to help you understand why French Bulldogs are expensive:

  •     Progesterone test $50-$100 (usually 2 tests needed)
  •     Vitamin supplements - $100
  •     Shipping semen - $100 - $300
  •     Male stud fee - $1,000 - $7,000
  •     Breeding insemination - $100 - $300
  •     Ultrasound or X-ray - $100 - $300
  •     C-section - $750 - $2,500
  •     Puppy food - $100 - $300
  •     Full vaccinations entire litter - $300 - $900
  •     Microchip entire litter- $200 - $500
  •     DNA/Genetic testing - $700 - $1,000
  •     Supplies misc - $200 - $500
Many breeders would agree good breeding practices can greatly reduce the risks of genetic disorders that can lead to hearing loss, hip problems, and respiratory illness. Buying a well bred French Bulldog can help avoid a lifetime of vet bills and care.

Stay away from breeders If the price of the Frenchie puppy is too good to be true

A breeder can offer a Frenchie for cheap if they bypass many necessary testings.

I have always wanted a Frenchie, I paid the breeder and went to meet them. They never showed up. It’s not even the money, I could care less about that we were already calling her Lucy. She was going to the vet today and then meet me. 🥲

I had a pug for 15 years and she just passed away . I miss her tremendously. I think having a Frenchie would help me not only feel the companionship a dog brings but also fill the void of my lost love . I’m a single mom of a 5 year old and I know it will make my daughter super happy need a puppy that’s reasonably financially possible for a single mom income .

Hi, I am a 45 yr old single female living in Salt Lake City, Utah and am on dialysis for end stage renal failure (kidneys). I have wanted one of these sweet frenchies, as long as I can remember. I am unfortunately on a fixed SSI income, but I just know having one would aid in my spirituality, recovery and overall quality of life.
I really pray daily that someone would donate to my cause or even help me to find “my lil love” @ a fraction of the cost. Can anyone help?
