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, 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 in Oklahoma.  I watched a  little impish creature running in a backyard coursing in circle 8's  and then bowing at my feet with what I later learned is a Frenchie-unique characteristic, the famous "playbow".     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.  Ch Here Tis' Up 'n Adam's Match won a 5 pt. major at 6 months 1 week of age 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.

That first  introduction to the French bulldog breed  was the impetus that led to becoming a fancier and developing a quality bloodline of French bulldogs.  However,  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; but, once a Frenchie owner, I could not enjoy other breeds.

"Back in the day" in Oklahoma, this breed was rare.   I was so smitten with the uniqueness of their behavior, loving devotion as a household pet, and ease of grooming that I developed  the  desire to make it possible for others to experience their own  joyful connection with  this intelligent, humorous,  "comfortable", and devoted canine companion lapdog, the FRENCH BULLDOG.   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  the Fore FAQS  

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.

COMPETITIVE RECORD: FANCIBUL is a "show kennel" which has evolved with a 20-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.

 Since our first homebred   litter in 1994,  67 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 involved 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 GR CH FANCIBULS BFF BARRY, CH CH FANCIBULS IMPECCABLE INGENUE (Chloe), CH Fancibul Chantilly Lace-Pretty Face (Lacy) , AKC  Gr CH Fancibuls Dapper Dan, Gr Ch Fancibul Ride-N Angel Wings, (Celene)  Gr Ch Fancibul Dipped-N Honey (Amber).

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:   Just finishing 20 years of owning, handling and breeding,  I  now  derive gratification from  helping the next  generation of  fanciers enjoy the sport of dogs 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); and  I am completing the process  to become a licensed AKC judge.  In 2010, I received Breeder of Distinction Award from the French Bull Dog Club of America. In 2011, I became 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.frenchbulldogclub.org for information about the breed, ethical breeders, and policies.
