Size: Our adult French Bulldogs range in weight from 13-18 pounds
The breed standard for French bulldogs calls for a maximum weight of 28 pounds, and no official designation of a teacup variety has been determined
French bulldogs were originally bred as a miniature version of the English bulldog. They normally weigh 19 to 28 pounds. While healthy but smaller than average puppies sometimes appear in normal litters, unscrupulous breeders may sell runts, premature puppies or malnourished puppies as teacups. Another strategy for producing smaller than average puppies is to breed only from parents that are smaller than average. Unless a breeder is careful to select for health and proper conformation as well as size, this can lead to health issues.
A fully-grown teacup French Bulldog weighs four pounds and is six inches in height. A full-grown regular French Bulldog is an average of 12 inches high. They have two weight classes: 19 to 22 pounds and 22 to 28 pounds. A Frenchie that weighs over 28 pounds is considered overweight.

Thinking of going organic with your French bulldog’s diet? I would always go organic when possible. But here are a few things to keep in mind: organic dog foods often use human-grade protein sources and generally have fewer fillers (corn and wheat and their by-products) and no synthetic preservatives, pesticides, food coloring, or other additives, thereby reducing the number of potential allergens in your Frenchie's diet. They typically contain whole grains instead of bulk fillers, which aid in weight control and digestive health, and boast superior nutritional quality, which can reduce skin irritation and boost coat sheen of your French bulldog. So what’s the downside? Well, apart from the expense of organic dog foods, as of this writing, dog foods are certified as organic according to guidelines established for human organic foods. Read food labels closely to make sure your French bulldog is getting all his essential nutrients. Plans are in the works to bring organic dog food standards in line with dogs’ needs, but until that happens, be sure you scrutinize the small print. You can follow the progress on the Association of American Feed Control Officials website ().The breed standard for French bulldogs calls for a maximum weight of 28 pounds, and no official designation of a teacup variety has been determined.
