How Much Do French Bulldogs Cost

The French bulldog has always topped the list of AKC’s ‘Most Popular Dogs’, ranking 4th in 2018, and 2nd in 2020, rising to the stature of one of the most desired pets in the United States.

With this popularity comes a high price tag, and on average, the Frenchie costs between $1500 and $5000. Senior Frenchies acquired through adoption are comparatively cheaper, coming for about $1000.

Some of the primary factors affecting their price include their bloodline, age, the reputation of the breeder, and even coat color.

Why Are French Bulldogs So Expensive

French bulldogs are one of the costliest breeds because of their rising fame and exotic colors. Mating is not possible due to their narrow hips, making artificial insemination the only way to conceive, thus making their pregnancy a costly affair too.
