SCAMS AND PRICING

The price of French Bulldogs can vary widely depending on several factors, including the dog’s pedigree, color, age, health, breeder reputation, and geographic location.

On average, French Bulldogs can cost anywhere from $1,500 to $4,000 or even more. However, some rare colorations or champion bloodlines can drive the price significantly higher.

It’s important to be cautious when purchasing a French Bulldog, as the breed’s popularity has led to an increase in scams and unethical breeding practices. Here are some common scams and how to avoid them

Common Frenchie Scams

  • Puppy Mills and Backyard Breeders:

Puppy mills and backyard breeders are known for prioritizing profit over the health and well-being of the dogs.
Avoid buying from such sources, as puppies from these places often suffer from health issues due to poor breeding conditions.

  • Too Good to Be True Prices:

Be skeptical of advertisements or offers with prices significantly lower than the average market price of at least $1500 to $2000.
Unusually low prices may indicate a scam or that the breeder is cutting corners on health and care.

  • No Health Certifications:

Reputable breeders prioritize the health of their dogs and provide documentation of health screenings, vaccinations, and genetic tests.
Avoid breeders who cannot or will not provide such records.

  • Research the Breeder

Look for reviews, testimonials, and references from previous customers. Reputable breeders have a positive reputation.

  • Contracts and Guarantees:

Reputable breeders often provide contracts that outline the responsibilities of both the buyer and the breeder.
These contracts may include health guarantees and conditions for returning the dog if necessary.

By doing thorough research, asking questions, and being vigilant, you can reduce the risk of falling victim to French Bulldog scams. Always prioritize the well-being and ethical treatment of the dog, and be prepared for the responsibilities and expenses that come with caring for a French Bulldog, regardless of the price you pay.
