How many puppies can a French bulldog have?

A French bulldog can have up to 5 puppies in a litter. One will typically have between two to four puppies.

French bulldogs usually deliver a maximum of four litters in their lifetime. With three puppies per litter on average, each French bulldog can only birth 12 puppies before it is considered too old to have more puppies.

Due to the anatomy of the breed, most French bulldog puppies are delivered by C-section to protect the mother dog and prevent the puppies from being injured during labor.
