Karen K. Fore-Monroe,  AKC BREEDER OF MERIT



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 near Oklahoma City.

OUR HISTORY:  My 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. She abruptyly  stopped to bow at my feet with the breed's  famous "playbow".   This adorable little creature  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  French bulldogs.    By  1994, I had become a fancier learning to train and show my Fancibuls.   The   first Fancibul  litter was born in November 1994.   The  keeper from my first homebred litter, ("Match")  won a 5 pt. major as Best of Breed when  as 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, the excitement of  caring for Frenchie puppies, learning to train and then present my Fancibuls with success and less awkwardness  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!  

FAST FORWARDING TO 2022, Fancibuls  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.  The  parents and grandparents of my first four Frenchies lived to be 9 l/2 to 10 1/2 years of age.  Many are living 13-15 years,   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, the minimal  grooming , and  size and temperament  suitable for a household pet.  Although popular in 1992, the lack of vaccines and breed appropriate vet care led to their becoming a rare breed.   It is now the 2nd  most popular purebred breed according to the American  Kennel  Club.   I  limit my breeding program to a couple of well-planned  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 is the French bulldog an  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?"

GREATEST JOY:    Besides providing others with the joy of owning a FANCIBUL FRENCH BULLDOG puppy,   I have added one other facet to my original goal:   After 30  years of owning a Frenchie  and 28 years participating in a breeding program and enjoying  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 FANCIBULS   are enjoying life  with others around the world.  I sense that I am a  part of their joy in living their dream . If you need a dogtalk, give me a call.
