French Bulldog Breeders - French Bulldog Puppies
Welcome to the home of Smokey Valley Farm and Kennel.
We are located in a peaceful wooded Valley in Lewis County, near the small riverside town known as Toledo, a place with a Logging and Riverboat history.
Bald Eagles, Blue Heron and Canadian Geese are a daily site along with the many Elk and Deer a place many long to find and few have the chance
We are World Wide known successful French Bulldog Breeders and our sometimes lesser known Miniature Australian Shepherds. Show/breeding exhibitors,
obedience workers and folks just wanting a wonderful pet in their home seek out our World-Class French bulldogs and Miniature Australian Shepherds.
Our Farm is a wondrous place where several Old World Heritage Breeds of Rare, Miniature Sheep and Miniature Polled Herefords graze the fields all
carefully cared for by us alone now as our three children are now grown.
We hope you will take the time to go through our site and see what we have worked on for all the many years since 1976. This is our life's work and love.
We hope you will see that in the MANY photos and information provided for anyone interested. All photos on our site are of our animals and all
the candid's were taken by our family.
Our dogs French Bulldogs and the Mini Aussies have been shared with other successful breeders and have started other breeding programs here in the USA,
Canada, Japan, Germany, Spain, Hungry, China, Mexico, Philippines, Brazil, Argentina, Czech Republic, Colombia and more.
Our Rare Miniature sheep too are sought by others breeders of the unique and rare heritage small family farm livestock helping save them for the future.
Enjoy Rick and Michelle Shannon

Hi Michelle, I know that you have sold a lot of French Bulldogs over the years, so you might not remember me.
I bought my French Bulldog, Louis, from you back in 2000 and then a year later in 2001, I came back and picked up Ruffy (Roughcut.)
I just wanted to let you know that we put Ruffy to sleep this morning, but that she had a wonderful life with us for eleven of her 15 1/2 years.
She was very healthy and active for her entire life until about two weeks ago when it was very obvious to us that her old age had finally caught up with her.
Louis will be twelve in September and he is still going strong. We hope that he will be with us for a few more years like Ruffy.
I just wanted to thank you for bringing such wonderful friends into our lives.
My husband and I hope that you plan to breed French Bulldogs for many more years,
because I'm sure there will come a time in the future when we will be ready to bring another little Frenchie puppy into our home.
I hope this email finds you and your family well.

AKC French Bulldog
The French Bulldog has the appearance of an active, intelligent, muscular dog of heavy bone, smooth coat, compactly built, and of medium or small structure. Expression alert, curious, and interested. Any alteration other than removal of dewclaws is considered mutilation and is a disqualification.
Proportion and Symmetry--All points are well distributed and bear good relation one to the other; no feature being in such prominence from either excess or lack of quality that the animal appears poorly proportioned.
Influence of Sex--In comparing specimens of different sex, due allowance is to be made in favor of bitches, which do not bear the characteristics of the breed to the same marked degree as do the dogs.
Size, Proportion, Substance
Weight not to exceed 28 pounds; over 28 pounds is a disqualification. Proportion--Distance from withers to ground in good relation to distance from withers to onset of tail, so that animal appears compact, well balanced and in good proportion. Substance--Muscular, heavy bone.
Head large and square. Eyes dark in color, wide apart, set low down in the skull, as far from the ears as possible, round in form, of moderate size, neither sunken nor bulging. In lighter colored dogs, lighter colored eyes are acceptable. No haw and no white of the eye showing when looking forward. Ears Known as the bat ear, broad at the base, elongated, with round top, set high on the head but not too close together, and carried erect with the orifice to the front. The leather of the ear fine and soft. Other than bat ears is a disqualification. The top of the skull flat between the ears; the forehead is not flat but slightly rounded. The muzzle broad, deep and well laid back; the muscles of the cheeks well developed. The stop well defined, causing a hollow groove between the eyes with heavy wrinkles forming a soft roll over the extremely short nose; nostrils broad with a well defined line between them. Nose black. Nose other than black is a disqualification, except in the case of the lighter colored dogs, where a lighter colored nose is acceptable but not desirable. Flews black, thick and broad, hanging over the lower jaw at the sides, meeting the underlip in front and covering the teeth, which are not seen when the mouth is closed. The underjaw is deep, square, broad, undershot and well turned up.

Coat is moderately fine, brilliant, short and smooth. Skin is soft and loose, especially at the head and shoulders, forming wrinkles.
