French bulldogs are super cute, no doubt. But if you’re already balking at the purchase price of a few thousand dollars, you might want to pause and think about how much you’ll spend over 10, 12 or 15 years for the life of this dog. Completely healthy dogs cost a few hundred dollars a year just for annual exams and vaccines. Frenchies are brachycephalic and have a ton of medical issues, not just with their breathing but with their spine as well and often need corrective surgery. These surgeries can cost upwards of $10,000.
