you begin to make enquiries about purchasing a French Bulldog, you
will find that there is a lot of variation between some breeders in
regard to the price of a puppy.
In 2017, the most you should be paying for a
standard coloured French Bulldog on the limited register (pet only) in
Australia, is between $4000 - $6000. Show and Breeding dog prices will vary
amongst breeders and expect to pay more for non standard colours
(blues, creams, lilacs, black and tan varients etc)
What you should get for money:-
A pup that has been micro chipped, wormed,
From parents that have been hip and spine
X-Rayed, and professionally scored .
Full DNA profile of both parents.
Veterinarian Health Check at 6 weeks.
Breeder support for the life of the puppy.
Registration papers on either the limited or
main register with MBDA or DOGS NSW depending on colour..
MDBA excepts all colours and
Brindle ,Pied, Fawn,
Blue, Cream, Chocolate, Black and Tan and variations of all the above.
Due to the popularity of the Breed, it
has been noted that several 'agents' have popped up on the Internet,
and in particular Facebook.
Agents get a substantial fee for every puppy the sell on behalf of a
breeder. They will market puppies any way possible, to make sure
they get their commission. They will try and steer you away from
Ethical Breeders, and in particular, those involved in showing and
members of the French Bulldog Clubs of Australia.
Ethical and responsible Breeders will want to
speak to you in person and will never sell their puppies through a
We will answer emails or txt messages
ASAP and we can be contacted by phone also. Good Breeders want to
speak to the potential new owners of their babies and make sure that
they are going to the right homes. So, even though this is the
age of social media and digital technology, we like to speak with you
during the buying process.
Official Certificate of Registration papers
can only be issued by one controlling body in each state. These
bodies are member bodies of the ANKC (Australian National Kennel

Be wary of scams. There
are a LOT of them out there, including some that have come from
Gumtree and the Trading Post.
The most important part of advice you can
take from all of this, is to be prepared to wait for a puppy from an
ethical breeder. Most have waiting lists, and that is because
they are breeding for themselves first, and with the aim to better the
breed, with health, temperament and conformation of utmost importance.
