Karen K. Fore-Monroe,  AKC BREEDER OF MERIT




FANCIBUL FRENCH BULLDOGS 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, have 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  who stopped to bow at my feet with   the famous "playbow".  I learned later that this is a typical Frenchie characteristic.  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.  My keeper, Ch Here Tis' Up 'n Adam's Match,  won a 5 pt. major at 6 months 1 week of age over championed bullies  with my very awkward attempt at handling him in AKC conformation competition. I was "hooked" by the excitement of showing and caring for Frenchie puppies, attending AKC dogshows, and researching the breed's beginning, perusing pedigrees, and the challenge of giving loving and   special care which  a French bulldog requires to be healthy and happy, and the complexities of genetics and planned breedings that are successful.

FAST FORWARDING TO 2016, 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 4 Frenchies lived to be 9 l/2 to 10 1/2 years of age.   Prior to 1992, I  had owned cocker spaniels as a housepet, the rare breed of Anatolian shepherds,  a Komondor for guarding property, and an English bulldog.   No other pet companion has captured my heart like this breed who is often referred to as the dog in the cloak of a clown with a heart of a philosopher. 

THE SECRET IS OUT!  "Back in the day" in Oklahoma, when this breed was rare,  I was so smitten with the uniqueness of their behavior, loving devotion as a household pet, and ease of grooming.   Thereafter, the breed rose in 2015 to No. 6 of most popular purebred dogs registered with The American Kennel  Club.   Although we have several French Bulldog puppies for sale each year and an occasional "retiree" from our breeding program,  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?"

FANCIBUL FOCUS: Dedicated to breeding healthy, lapsize French bulldogs that meet the AKC standard for physical conformation and temperament.   Placing extra puppies into long-term loving homes. Allowing the Best of the Best to contribute to the future of the Breed.

COMPETITIVE RECORD: FANCIBUL is a "show kennel" which has evolved with a 23-year history of producing healthy, high quality French Bulldogs that  successfully  compete  in the American Kennel Club  conformation competitions, obedience, and/or rallies.   FANCIBULS are represented by  champions in many other countries of the world.  Since not all are destined for show business in the Sport of Dogs,  I often have puppies for sale to others as  pet/companions. Watch the AvailABul page for announcements.  By an email request, you may receive newsletters that update plans for upcoming litters.   Write fancibul@aol.com.

 Since our first homebred   litter in 1994,  69 FANCIBUL FRENCH BULLDOGS  have achieved  AKC  titles in  conformation competition, and 10 Fancibuls  have top show awards  in conformation competitions in France,  Canada, Argentina, Brazil, Thailand, Taiwan. and Russia and Eastern European competitions.   Several  have had success  in obedience, rallies, or agility competitions.  Some Fancibuls have become therapy dogs to patients  in children and adult  facilities.    A few FANCIBULS became the foundation for  top breeders  in other countries.    Most were   trained and handled by their proud owners.    Our latest AKC champs are CH FANCIBULS FINISHING TOUCH, CH FANCIBUL GRANDE BOULE DE FEU,  GR CH FANCIBULS BFF BARRY.    For those now showing, look at the Show Biz page.

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 26 years of owning a Frenchie  and 23 years in the Sport of Dogs developing a breeding program,   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 of living through our bloodline .

SERVICE TO THE BREED.  I  have been a member of the French Bull Dog Club of America  since 1996.  This national breed club has the distinction of being the first among  AKC-sanctioned national breed clubs.  I have given time to serve as  Breeder Referral person;  Chair Person for the Breeder's Education Committee; an  associate member of the Dallas/Fort Worth French Bulldog Club (a regional club for fanciers);  I received Breeder of Distinction Award from the French Bull Dog Club of America;  in 2010; and am an   AKC  BREEDER OF MERIT.  I am in compliance with the Code of Ethics of the French Bull Dog Club of America.  Please check www.FBDCA.org  for information about the breed, ethical breeders, and policies.
