about

us

Unique French Bulldogs are a registered breeder with the Wellington Shire Council. Reg No# WSC09/2015.

All of our gorgeous babies come toilet trained, vet checked, wormed, flead, micro-chipped and vaccinated. Our puppies are also spine x-rayed and scored as well as having their heart auscultation examined and patellas examined and scored. We believe that we have the most thorough health screening program for French Bulldog puppies compared to any other breeders within Australia. 

 

French Bulldogs

French Bulldogs are truly unique animals and therefore have many unique needs.

Because of this there are several areas owners must be aware of & take care & precautions where needed.

WEATHER

French Bulldogs can find it difficult to regulate their body temperatures & can be vulnerable to the elements. They are highly susceptible to heat, heat exhaustion & dehydration which can result in death. It is extremely important that if your Frenchie is outside that s/he has plenty of cool water & shade.

We HIGHLY recommend a shell pool half filled & placed in the shad to keep you pup cool when you're not at home. Alternatively, the best option would be to keep him/her inside with the air conditioning on during the hotter months. This is where having “crate trained” your little one can come in to good use, as you know they are safe & cool inside, but not running a muck throughout the house!!

** Do NOT exercise your Frenchie in the heat of the day. If the concrete feels hot on your hand then it’s too hot to walk your dog.

During the colder months your little one can find it difficult to keep warm. So during the cooler months make sure you little one has a nice warm area to sleep in. Some people like to invest in beds that have an inbuilt warming blanket, or you can keep your pup stylish with some nice jumpers/hoodies. Remember if you go for walks have a weather proof dog coat to help keep them warm.

WATER

French Bulldogs are not well known for their great swimming ability, most frenchies are not very capable swimmers. Due to this be very cautious with your new puppy around water.

To start with you may find they are not comfortable around water, but encourage them to play whether it is in a little pool, river or the beach. But if you are going to take your little one into deeper water we recommend a doggy flotation jacket that helps keep them afloat.

JUMPING

French Bulldogs have a very unique body structure & because of this the weight of their body is distributed more heavily on certain parts/joints of the body then most breeds.

Because of this we strongly advise you DO NOT allow your Frenchie (at any age) to jump on or off couches, beds, chairs or any elevated surface. Allowing this can cause damage to their joints & effect their physical growth.

ALLERGIES

French bulldog’s skin can be sensitive. Due to this your pup’s skin may become irritated by certain plants, grasses, grooming products. Regular inspections of your pup’s skin (especially around the belly) will give you an indication if something is causing a reaction.

If an allergy occurs, you will notice redness on the skin to the extreme of welts may appear.

If you notice any redness on your little one’s skin, keep your pup inside until it settles & then try to establish what is causing the irritation. If the irritation is severe visit you vet as soon as possible to look at allergy testing & treatment.

GENERAL HEALTH

It is important to remember that the French Bulldog, like any breed, has specific health issues that they are more prone to then others. Just because we list these here does not mean that your Frenchie will acquire any of these illnesses or injuries. We simply want to make you aware & educate our owners on what is common within the breed.

Luxating Patellas (dislocating knee joints) & sub luxation of the hip

Both of these conditions can occur &/or are aggravated by jumping off elevated/unstable surfaces & furniture. This is why we advise you do not allow your pup to jump from heights to prevent this condition from occurring.

CHERRY EYE

This is where the gland in the 3rd eyelid slips out of place & becomes inflamed.

Cherry eye is not a life threatening condition, but, if left untreated it can cause irritation and issues later with your pups sight.

OVERHEATING

As mentioned, French Bulldogs are unable to regulate their temperature. Due to this they can easily overheat & death can occur. So please ensure during warmer months you take necessary measures to prevent this from happening

BREATHING

French Bulldogs tend to wheeze, snort & snore die to their general composition. This is extremely normal & don’t fret, they can still breathe.

DROOLING

Some French Bulldogs may over salivate, causing them to drool. This may be from various situations- hunger, excessive exercising, stressed.

SKIN

Depending on the colouring of your Frenchie you may need to be careful with regards to protection when in the sun. Frenchies with lighter coat colours e.g. pure white, can be more vulnerable to sunburn. Studies have shown a third of canine tumours can be traced back to sunburn. The main areas that need protection is ears/muzzle/nose (areas that are pink) & with the lighter color Frenchies & their short coats protection should be considered for the whole body.

It is advised not to use normal sunscreen as it has ingredients that are toxic to animals, there are canine sunscreens available which you should be able to source from a good pet supply store.

HEALTH AND FRENCH BULLDOGS

HEMIVERTEBRAE

Hemivertibrae refers to incompletely formed spinal vertebrae. This is a common malformation seen in French Bulldogs. The spinal vertebrae are not completely formed until 7-9 months of age thus your puppies first score may overestimate the prevalence of hemivertebrae at this point of time. We believe in strengthening the health of the breed and our breeding program which selects against hemivertebrae should be effective in reducing their prevalence. Scoring your puppy will assist Unique French Bulldogs evaluate Sire and Dam’s suitability for breeding. Dogs which produce puppies with high hemivertebrae scores will not be bred from again.

While most hemivertebrae cause no problems, a hemivertebrae causing spinal deviation, (typically kyphosis) has more chance of being associated with spinal cord compression. Spinal vertebrae protect the spinal cord. Damage to spinal cord can present as pelvic limp weakness urinary incontinence and hind-limb muscle wasting. Investigation of spinal found hemivertebrae causing ventral deviation was associated with neurological defects in dogs presenting for veterinary treatment. French Bulldogs with kyphoscoliosis (deformed spines often caused by hemivertebrae) have shown a higher incidence of vertebral disk extrusion. Reducing the incidence of these specific spinal deformities should result in more robust breed.

HOW TO REDUCE RISK

French Bulldogs are a domestic breed that is classified in the non-sporting group. They have been susceptible to joints, spine and patella problems and it is therefore advisable to not allow your French Bulldog to jump on and off furniture or in and out of vehicles as it can compromise their spines and joints.

Our Facilities

NURSERY

Our state of the art indoor facility known as The Nursery, is one of the best in Australia.

The facility is fully heated/air conditioned, well-lit and fitted with fans, a kitchenette, and even a TV to keep the Frenchies comforted! Our facility consists of multiple private dog rooms to house a mother and her litter during this precious and pivotal time. Each spacious room contains a large bed, heat mat, food & drink, toys and toilet training trays. Industrial quality linoleum flooring ensure the Frenchies cannot tear, dampen or permanently soil their home and the mixture of textures on the ground from soft fabric mats to bristled AstroTurf provides some variation, stimulation and colour into their environment.

Our animal attendants thoroughly clean The Nursery twice a day with specifically developed animal disinfectants and ensure that our Frenchies have a constant and varied supply of food and water to graze on day and night. We encourage all of our newborns to breast feed from their mother to receive all the natural nutrients and antibodies they need to be fit and healthy but our animal attendants also top up the little ones with bottle feeds. Our Frenchies are handled, socialised and exercised multiple times a day, every single day, and receive access to all the wider grounds of the property.

This facility has around the clock CCTV for safety and security purposes. 

OUTSIDE RUNS

Our large ‘outdoor runs’ house the majority of our male Frenchies and adult mothers who are not nursing pups. These large separate gardens have enough space for our Frenchies to run and exercise. They are complete with colourful wooden cubby houses. These large homes contain beds and straw and are roofed to protect Frenchies from rain water and shade them from the sun. Each of these gardens also have various plastic play equipment, garden props and ornaments, toys and animal-friendly plants growing around the facility.

The outdoor runs are cleaned daily by our animal attendants who also ensure the dogs receive a constant and varied supply of food to graze on day and night. The gardens each have their own water supply and drainage system which provides the Frenchies with a constant stream of fresh, cool drinking water.

Our Frenchies are handled, socialised and exercised multiple times a day, every single day and receive access to all the wider grounds of the property.

The facility has around the clock CCTV for safety and security purposes.

THE GROUNDS

Our facilities are set on a backdrop of five acres of beautiful Victorian countryside. We have a large grassy field, planted gardens, vegetable patches, trees and a gravel area that our Frenchies can roam freely and safely. The grounds are littered with play equipment, toys, food and water and are maintained daily by our animal attendants who ensure food and water are topped up for grazing, grounds are poop scooped and grass is consistently mown.

This is a family owned and run business so the Frenchie facilities are an extension of our own home. We are around 24/7 to maintain, care for, love and play with the Frenchies. Our Frenchies all become socialised with the young children in our family, personal pets including our cats Elsa & Tom, and other breeds of dog such as our Belgian Shephard & Neapolitan Mastiff guard dogs.

The entire grounds, facility and home are powered in part by sustainable solar energy and natural filtered rainwater.

The grounds include free, off road, private parking for visitors and have around the clock CCTV for safety and security purposes.

 

Breeding

BRUISER

Black and White 

Pied

Unique French Bulldogs is committed to importing at least two males from overseas every year and has surpassed that commitment often. She sources strong, healthy dogs from around the world. This is a big undertaking, but she is a strong believer in ‘outcrossing’ as this significantly reduces the risk of health defects.

Line breeding or inbreeding? Never

This compounds health problems, particularly if there is a problem recessive gene present. For example, if a female and male have an issue a breeder is unaware of, mixing their DNA could likely result in the birth of puppies with health problems.

Therefore, Sharryn only breeds two to three litters from each female and is always importing or buying new males. The first stock she imported was six years ago.

Testimonials

Nicola Dalton

This is our beautiful boy Bowie. He is nearly 11 months old and is our bundle of joy. Sharryn Aurisch has been so helpful and is always available to chat and give advice. I received many photos of Bowie while he was growing up and also lots of information and goodies to take home.
Bowie is a very fun and loving companion. Whilst he loves to go for a walk and is always up for play time, he is also more than happy to be lazy and snuggle up on the couch.
We're so happy we found Sharryn!

Ebony Thomas

Hey Sharryn Aurisch, just thought i would share this pic of Floyd Sparkles on her graduation day. She is growing up so fast!

Tayla Mannuzza

ALL of you claiming sharryn is a puppy farm, LISTEN UP!! The conditions her dogs and puppies live in are immaculate! Visited sharryn today and all I can say is wow. 
I've been on the waiting list for a couple months now and visiting her today made me very happy and patient to wait for our little pup much easier knowing where the pups are coming from. All the mummies are in superb health and very well loved as well as every other animal at her home.
Seeing her passion with my own eyes today reassures me all she cares about is her babies. 
So unless you have personally been there, DO your research and don't judge based on what others are saying who HAVNT even been to see the facility personally.
I am a very harsh animal lover, and as soon as I see something that is cruel to any type of animal, I will do something about it. I could not fault sharryn and her work.
Well done sharryn, I am proud to be getting a puppy from you.

Julien Manigand

I was ed formerly impressed with Sharyns breeding program of her French bulldogs. Extremely professional and humane for the furry frenchies.

Our beautiful boy Buster came from Sharyn.. he has such an amazing temperament. We couldn't have found Sharyn and her family more accommodating, they really care for their frenchies.
We're always sending her updates on Buster. From daily snaps to Christmas cards! We would really recommend to anyone looking for Frenchie to go through Sharyn

Rochelle

I highly recommend the team at Unique French Bulldogs. Oh my Gosh! I have probably been the most painful of new Frenchie parent - asking question after question - calling and emailing - each and every time I was answered with patience and compassion with total commitment to help. The support is amazing. 
I got my little girl yesterday and she is such a chilled out sweet little one - already toilet trained and very confident in herself.
Thankyou a thousand times over Unique Team. You are all amazing.

Madeleine Roberts        

Not only have I got an amazing and beautiful companion from this breeder, I have also joined one of the most amazing support networks of owners.

Sharryn is an absolutely lovely woman who wants to help you as much as possible and is always there to answer any questions you may have, before or after your purchase.

I have been to her property, seen her facilities, met the mother & father of our puppy and even her whole family!

Just call her for a chat, she will happily answer any of your concerns, then form your own opinion, don't let others form it for you.

One year ago this Saturday is when we picked up with little dude from Sharryn Aurisch. How he has grown over the year! Oscar is a very important member of the family

 

Lesley Watson

Hi My name is Lesley, Mother of Vegas, When I think back on 2013 all I can think about is the joy this little sweetheart has bought to our family. She has made a special bond with all 3 of us in a different way. Loves to play, snooze, eat and just happy to be in human company, whilst still being great with other dog. Thanks Sharryn for all your help she has been dream.

Peta Sharman

Thank you for the add Sharryn Aurisch.

Bouda is very cheeky and brings us a lot of joy.
Check out these photos of him.
We r very much happy parents thanks Sharryn

Jessica Nash

After following Sharryn and this page for a long time and doing some research, my partner and I decided to visit Sharryn and see her beautiful Frenchies for ourselves. Safe to say We fell in love with them and didn't want to leave!

The environment they are bought up in is like a family home and our little man Archer is just the sweetest little guy. Can't thank Sharryn, Taylor etc enough for being so welcoming to us and also letting us into their home and blessing us with such a beautiful little man. 
Everyone he meets love him and his sweet nature. I'm sure he wouldn't have this if he wasn't from such a loving place to begin with.

Defiantly recommend Sharryn and making the trip to Sale is definitely worth it. We couldn't be happier! 

Julia Bell

Hey everyone this is my puppy Bentley who I bought off Sharryn Aurisch about this time last year. He is amazing! Everyone thinks his a little human cause he has so many expressions. His also very cuddly which I love! He hasn't had any health issues so far, his been really low maintenance. His also really good with kids too, great family dog!! I would definitely recommend using Sharryn as she was really quick getting me my puppy and extremely helpful with transport and food etc. if you want anymore info feel free to pm or comment below

Ben Logan

This is going to be a long read but I wanted to share..
Sharryn!!
You are truly one of a kind!! No words can describe the joy our family is experiencing right now.....
I see all these pups going to new homes and as much as i wanted one i just knew with so many little kids it would be a little hard..
Then, i come across a picture of a very special girl...
A little gem that i fell instantly in love with who was retiring!!
You have raised such a beautiful girl, she has been wonderful with our 4 little girls and got along perfectly with our other dog!!
You are doing such an amazing job our family could not be happier!!
If anyone is wanting their pets picked up and delivered to either you or the airport a lovely man named Ray Wade does this, he doesn't charge a lot but the service is like no other..
Our girl arrived with some ice in her crate and a blanket on the bottom for comfort!
Thank you Sharryn, we are so in love!! xxxx
