were bred by husband Bob and I in Tecumseh, OK from 1994
through 2011. After Bob's passing, The Fancibuls and I, now
Karen Fore-Monroe, relocated in my birthplace in Oklahoma
City near Choctaw.
first-time introduction to the French bull dog breed was in 1992.
This was a rare breed at that time. I watched a
little impish creature running in a backyard coursing in circle 8's
who stopped to bow at my feet with the famous "playbow". I
learned later that this is typical Frenchie behavior.
This adorable little creature home went home with me. Her life was short. However, that
brief encounter with a French bulldog led to
a personal L'Affair du Coeur with the breed of French
bulldogs. By 1994, I had become a hobbyist
learning to train and show my Fancibuls. The
first Fancibul litter was born in November 1994. With my
awkward attempt to handle "Match", the keeper from my first
homebred litter, my bully won a 5 pt. major as Best of Breed
when we celebrated his 6 mos. birthday . I
became focused on grasping the AKC standard of the breed,
researching the breed's history, perusing pedigrees ,genetics, excitement of caring
for Frenchie puppies, learning to train and then present my
Fancibuls in AKC conformation shows. It is a
challenge to plan a healthy mating and give love and special care to
a French bulldog. Without that, they cannot live a happy,
healthy and long life!
TO 2021, Fancibuls have evolved into a bloodline that has champions
in many countries of the world and also a family of dogs that
has increased one-third in longevity since the first litter of 1994
when parents and grandparents of my first four Frenchies lived to be 9
l/2 to 10 1/2 years of age. Although Prior to
1992, I had owned cocker spaniels , the rare breed of Anatolian
shepherds, a Komondor for guarding property, and later an
English bulldog and shih zhu to breed and show, no other breed captured
my heart like this breed which is often referred to as the
"dog in the cloak of a clown with a heart of a philosopher.
I decided to breed only Frenchies.
THE SECRET GOT
OUT! From popularity
in the 1920's, the breed had became largely invisible in the USA.
I was smitten with the uniqueness of their playful nature,
loving devotion, minimal grooming , and the size and
temperament for a household pet. Little known in
1992, the breed rose in 2015 to No. 6 most popular
purebred breed registered with The American Kennel Club;
by 2021, the French bulldog became
No. 2 in popularity. Although we have
several French Bulldog puppies and an occasional "retiree" for sale
each year, I must limit my breeding program to a couple of litters
per year. I will be the first to
admit that a French bulldog is NOT the breed for every fancier of
purebred dogs nor ideal pet for every home.
If deciding whether a French Bulldog is the right pet for your
family, take time to read "Am I The One?"
to breeding healthy, lapsize French bulldogs that meet the AKC
standard for physical conformation and temperament in a pursuit to
produce quality and preserve the breed standard.

Besides providing others
with the joy of owning a FANCIBUL FRENCH
added one other facet to my original goal: After 29
years of owning a Frenchie and 28 years in the Sport of Dogs, I
now derive gratification from helping the next
generation of fanciers enjoy this hobby as they develop
their own breeding programs. I hope to leave a
legacy to this breed that has given so much to my life
over the years. It's gratifying to learn of the
daily life as
enjoying life with others around the world. I sense that
I am a part of their joy in living their dream .
