Our thanks goes to Hélène Denis, for sharing this information with the DWN community.
"The Bulldog has a great popularity.
• In 2015: the bulldog is the 5th favourite breed in the USA = 20000 puppies were registered in one year.
• 5600 puppies were registered by the Kennel Club in the UK during the same year
• In France, more than 2000 puppies were born every year in the last several years."
