(1) French Bulldog over panting: in most cases, when your dog is tired, she begins to breathe heavily. That means your best friend has had enough. If you don’t drool, your puppy is probably dehydrated. The French Bulldog’s ears move back, which is a clear sign that your puppy is burning her last fuel.
(2) French Bulldogs change the way they walk: when your puppy starts to slouch, limp, or get a wobbly way to walk, then it’s time to stop. Any sign of lameness could make it clear that the little champion is exhausted.
(3) French Bulldog spit bubbles: another important sign that you should pay attention to is when your dog begins to bubble in your mouth. That’s a sign of heatstroke.
