The Heartland French Bulldog Club

 

Our club was established to give Frenchie breeders, owners, and fanciers in the central midwest a way to get together to celebrate and enjoy this wonderful breed.

We offer support, guidance, and education about French Bulldogs to the general public as well as to our members.

Thanks for visiting our website.  Please join us for one of our monthly club meetings or one of our events, dates of which will be posted on this site.
