They usually have to have C sections because of their head shape

I believe they cannot breed on their own either because they are so top-heavy. They need to be artificially inseminated and then, like Julie said, they need to have c-sections because of their head shape.

What dollar amount are we talking??? Just curious. I've seen them on "It's Me Or The Dog" and they make me laugh.

Yes, I used to show Frenchies. Finished Piper myself, she was my first show dog. She ended up being nationally ranked in 1991 with a group 3 and a group 4 at large shows. The terms I agreed on to buy her were CRAZY. She was $1800, to be shown to her championship, and TWO PUPPIES BACK. It was ridiculous and I was a fool to agree to it, but I was young and naiive and wanted her to so signed on the dotted line. She was a beauty and I loved her dearly though. However, she was bred twice (artificially inseminated with frozen semen we had overnighted at my expense) and never conceived. Lots of heartache, time, and money involved in that co-ownership and I'd advise against co-ownerships if at all possible.

She died over 3 years ago at the age of 13. I miss her still.
