French dogs were once considered a staple of the British aristocracy.
They were, after all, the first domesticated dog to be bred in France.
Now they are widely considered to be a favourite of the French.
A study by the French Academy of Sciences showed that there are more than 10,000 breeds in France, with the majority of them being dogs of European origin.
The study said the breed was most commonly found in the northeast and in the south of France.
The top three French breeds according to the study are the Labrador retriever, Chihuahua and the Staffordshire Bull Terrier.
The Chihuayas are the most popular breed in France with an estimated 40,000 people owning them.
The Labrador retrivers are second with 9,000 owners.
The Staffordshire bull terriers are third with 6,000.
The third most popular French breed is the Stafford, which has been known to breed in the United States and Japan.
The average price for a dog in France is €7,000 ($9,500), while in Japan it is €5,000 to €6,000 for a puppy.
