French bulldogs – expensive breed and easy to steal
SNORT rescue’s founder Tara Bruno said that French bulldogs’ prices are very high. The breed’s demand is also high. Their size is also small and easy to carry. SNORT is an institution based in New Jersey which rescues Pugs, Boston terriers, and bulldogs.
The bulldogs from French cost a minimum of $3,000 to a maximum of $5,000. These have an excellent reputation among other breeds. Many posch importers from overseas or dog mills charge even $10,000 for these French bulldogs.
French bulldogs rank fourth as the most liked breed in the US, according to The AKC. The most liked breed on the list is Labradors, then golden retrievers on the second most liked breed, and the third German shepherds are there on the list. Due to their small size, bulldogs are an easy option for dog robbers.
Bruno added that the motive of the robbers is simple, that is, to resell the dogs. They can earn quite a lot of dollars for those French bulldogs.
