These dogs are little, but they don't seem to understand that. While they are best suited as family lap-warmers, they will try to do more than their little bodies are suited for. They can be comical both intentionally and, when they try to take on much larger dogs or tasks well outside their abilities, unintentionally. Still, they are lovable, loyal and devoted dogs — if a bit stubborn at times.
Free-Lance Bulldogs tend to have more intelligence than they typically exhibit, and that may be because they are pushy and messy. They do have a desire to please, however, so if you really want to get them to show their smarts, be sure to use rewards-based training.
They can be decent watchdogs as they are highly alert and will want to control their territory. They may try also to be guard dogs but unless they are protecting you or the couch against marauding bunny rabbits, that is not going to happen! These sweet little dogs will follow you most anywhere, and they prefer a dominant yet calm master to manage their own tendency to dominate.
These dogs may amble about a fair amount, but their exercise needs are low. A short daily walk will suffice. Free-Lance Bulldogs like to play, but they usually prefer to nap or lay about watching things, people and other dogs.
