BLUESTAR-FRENCHIE

Why Can't I come to your home and meet the puppies:

We are very protective of our dogs and their health and safety. We are more than happy to FaceTime with customers often and meet you at our local vet office, our business office, or local police station if you would like, but we do not allow prospective buyers in our home whelping area for the safety and privacy of our dogs and family.

Why do Frenchies cost so much:

The old adage "you get what you pay for" is very true with French Bulldogs. We invest in our program to ensure we not only have health tested and DNA tested registered dogs, but we also breed through artificial insemination (safer for our females and is very difficult for compact Frenchies to breed naturally), progesterone testing, ultrasounds, X-rays, C sections and then our puppies are hand-raised in an incubator their first 3-4 weeks of life. We also specialize in rare colors and DNA, which cost more than a standard color Frenchie. Our puppies are STUNNING, but they more importantly are well cared for and born from healthy parents.

how much are your puppies:

Our puppy prices start at $4000 and may go up depending on color and sex.

Our puppies go quick and many are reserved before they are even born. Please contact us to get a contract ASAP and secure a deposit.

What does my puppy come with:

Your puppy will come with his or her own AKC registration papers for you to fill out and mail in. We sell our puppies with limited registration, however full registration is available to approved show or breeding homes. Your puppy will also have a vet exam done and have its first set of vaccines and de-worming prior to going home with you. You will also have in your puppy take home bag a sample of puppy food that you puppy is used to eating, its favorite toy, and his or her own puppy blanket.

Do French Bulldogs bark a lot?

French Bulldogs are not big barkers, but you may get an occasional alien noise, snort or fart.

Are French Bulldogs good watch dogs?

French Bulldogs can make good watch dogs, just be careful they don't become too territorial! 

They are fantastic companion dogs.  They are fun, entertaining and loving.  The French Bulldog is delightful, and easy to groom. They have great personalities and each has their own individual quirks and they are usually great with children!

How do Frenchies take to apartment living?

Frenchies do well in apartment living because they are "low maintenance" dogs. They can not be outside for long periods of time so they do not need room to run and be free, Frenchies are relatively small weighing between 18-25 pounds, and they love to cuddle whether on the sofa or in your bed. 

Are French Bulldogs sociable?

Frenchies are very sociable and need to be socialized starting at a young age. Puppies purchased from us will be socialized to other dogs, large and small, children, loud noises etc. All of our puppies are raised in our home and each puppy gets the love an attention is needs and desires. After your puppy has received its final set of shots at the age of 14-16 weeks, you will want to allow your puppy to be social with other animals, and other people, bring your puppy in the car and on adventures, this helps your puppy grow into a socialized dog that will not have fear of the unknown, and creates a better quality of life for both the Frenchie and their owner. Your Frenchie should NEVER be penned up for long stretches of time.  He or she needs to be a part of your life.

 Are French Bulldogs good with children? 

French Bulldogs typically do well with children as long as they socialized at an early age. All children need to be supervised with puppies, as this is for the child's and puppy's safety. 

Are French Bulldogs good with cats?

That very much depends on the individual dog and whether the dog or the cat was introduced first to the household.  If you already have a cat be prepared for possible failure.

Are French Bulldogs good with other dogs?

This is very much a matter of personality combined with experience.  For any individual dog, it is a question that must be tested to find the answer.  Be sure that the test is supervised at all times. Try using the X-pen to introduce your new Frenchie to other dogs.  While they are protected, get your other dog’s reaction and the Frenchie’s response.  Sooner or later, a puppy may attempt to establish dominance in some cases with smaller or more submissive dogs.

Are French Bulldogs easy to train?

They can be very willing.  They can also be very stubborn and hardheaded too.  If you make it a game they’ll want to play all the time.  Frenchies are often considered people pleasers and love to be the center of attention.

Do Frenchies snore?

Yes, Frenchies can snore and some are rather loud at it.  Snoring is  also aggravated by breathing deficiencies.

What about feeding?

Be aware of artificial preservatives and excessive protein and fillers.  Some dogs may have allergic reactions to certain commercial foods.  Read the label and know what suits your dog’s needs best.  Consult your veterinarian if your dog experiences food allergies.  Food allergies are not uncommon in Frenchies. A small bag of the food your puppy is currently eating will be apart of the package you receive, this way you can continue that food or slowly transition to a food you feel is better suited. 

Potty training?

Some dogs are harder than others.  Crate training is very helpful in house breaking.  A dog perceives it as their “den” and will not soil it.    Develop a routine after they eat, before bed and first thing in the morning, and be consistent.  A minimum of three potty breaks a day are necessary. For puppies, potty breaks should be every two hours.  Remember a puppy’s little bladders may not be under control as quickly as we’d like, so be positive.

Do Frenchie's shed?

Yes, but these dogs are single coated and shed less than most other breeds.

How do I find a vet familiar with French Bulldogs?

Finding a vet that is familiar with bulldog breeds is very important if you are considering adding a frenchie to your family. If you are local to Metro Detroit we will most certainly recommend some great vets, if not we can find a breeder in your area and hopefully make a connection to see what Veterinarian they use in your area.

We personally hand deliver all of our puppies to the closest airport to you.

How can I pay for my puppy? 

We accept PayPal, Venmo, Zelle, Cash App for deposits ONLY, for the rest of the payment we accept cash only, we do not accept personal checks.

How do I place a deposit? 

When we start accepting deposits for puppies, you will be able to place them via PayPal, Venmo, Zelle, Cash App. Any deposit placed is NON-REFUNDABLE for any reason, so please be sure before you send one.  Deposits are non refundable due to the fact that I am considering the puppy sold and turning away all other potential buyers. We guarantee the health and quality of our puppies. Once a deposit is placed and a contract is signed, the puppy will be reserved for you until he/she is ready to go to their new home. Deposits to hold the puppy are 20% of the puppy price.  A deposit is not intended for you to have more time to think about getting the puppy or not. We do not hold puppies for people to "think about it", chances are another family is considering the same puppy, to ensure you get the puppy you want, then you must place a deposit. Puppies will need to be paid for by the time they reach 7-8 weeks of age, so we can make travel arrangements within the next week for when they are 8 weeks old. 

Do you offer shots, de-worming or other initial services?

Absolutely!  The puppy will come with 1st set of shots, dewormed, & a Michigan health certificate from a licensed Veterinarian. When puppies fly to their new homes a health certificate is required. 

Do you provide care instructions or consultations after purchase?

Yes, I make sure I am always available to answer any questions you may have, help you find a good veterinarian in your area, anything you may need we will help you the best we can! You will receive a puppy package after purchasing one of our puppies, it will come with informational material to help you and your Frenchie better understand each other.

Can I see the puppy or mother before I decide to purchase?

Yes, pictures of mother and puppy will always be available, but we do not allow for in-person viewing. We do not do this to hide how our puppies or Adults are kept, we do this for the safety of ourselves and of our dogs. We do offer videos and face-time with buyers that have placed deposits on their puppies. We hope you can understand this decision as it was a difficult one to make. 

Do you offer a refund on deposits or purchases?

No, we don't offer a refund once we accept the non-refundable deposit.  

I want a puppy for breeding - do you do this?

Our puppies are sold with 'Limited Rights' with a notarized Spay/Neuter Contract, puppies that are bred that were sold on Limited Rights are in breach of their contract, and legal action will be pursued unless we have made other arrangements with the buyer, puppies purchased for "Full Rights" are considered on a case by case basis, we do not sell to kennel breeders.  We want to make sure that all of our puppies are in loving homes.

I want to refer you  - can I?

Yes, we appreciate a good reference always.
