…French Bulldog
Oklahoma City is nicknamed “The Big Friendly,” but the state takes the term “dog friendly” to a whole new level. By Oklahoma law, making an “ugly face” at a dog is a crime punishable by a hefty fine or even jail time. If you live in a land that heavily advocates for dog rights, you should get a dog that will be just as supportive. Oklahomans in search of a great companion should consider adopting a French Bulldog.

Funny-faced Frenchies are categorized as companion dogs because they love their owners undyingly. They are tiny little guys ranging from 16 to 28 pounds, which means they can go everywhere with you. They love car rides, exercise, and the adoration of strangers. Did you know dog friendly workplaces are proven to make employees happier and more productive? A French Bulldog would make a great office-mate that your coworkers would surely appreciate. They are generally low maintenance; they just need company and exercise to feel happy.

It is unlikely that these sweet, affectionate dogs would be the butt of any “ugly faces” while in public, but if they are, alert an Oklahoma official immediately. As Oklahoma native and internet sensation Sweet Brown would say, “Ain’t nobody got time for that!”

Ready to adopt a Frenchie of your own? Here are some sources to help you on your search.
