Battersea reports soaring numbers of French bulldogs Battersea reports soaring numbers of French bulldogs

Battersea Dogs and Cats Home has reported a stark rise in the number of French bulldogs being taken in to its care.

So far this year, the charity has already taken in 29 French Bulldogs. In 2014, it took in just eight across the whole of the year.

Battersea Dogs and Cats Home says that most of these dogs have required intense veterinary treatment, with many needing specialist surgery to open their airways and shorten their soft palate.
