Give a few more details. But I can tell you a bit about the Frenchie..
If you buy from a quality French Bulldog breeder, [which is what you want to do] they can get a bit up there in price [about $2000] They're a gentle breed that typically has a happy-go-lucky attitude, A positive it that there not big barkers! but as a flat faced breed, it is essential that you understand that French Bulldogs can't live outdoors. Their bulk and their compromised breathing system makes it impossible for them to regulate their temperature efficiently.
Also, Frenchies are top heavy.. and therefore have a difficult time swimming. There vet bills can also get very expencive, were talking $1000+ here. There are several congenital diseases and conditions to which French bulldogs are susceptible, although they are still considered among the healthiest of the bull breeds. Frenchies can suffer from Von Willebrand's disease (VWD), a bleeding disorder that is also found in humans and is similar to hemophilia, which can impede their clotting. In conjunction to this, French bulldogs may also suffer from thyroid condition. Many breeders follow a program of testing younger dogs for VWD, and only testing for thyroid at that time if the VWD factor is low. In this program, the breeder tests thyroid again just prior to using the dog for breeding. Other breeders test both VWD and thyroid at the same time, Which is why it's so important to get from a breeder who knows what they are doing! Remember to ask lots of questions, and see where the puppy is growing up, if you are planning to buy one as a puppy.
But over all the Frenchie is an awesome dog, as far as temperment goes.

On a last note, I want to say, When you do deside which breed you want pet stores should not be considered as far as buying a puppy goes.. A good place to buy from is a reputable breeder, they would never sell to a pet store, but rather can be found by looking in dog magazines, calling a local dog club, or attending dog shows. Back yard breeders are the ones who advertise in the newspaper and on-line, they often sell pups at inflated prices but are a shade better than pet stores. Never buy a pup from a filthy or over crowded yard, you only reward the seller for cruelty, instead report them to an SPCA or animal protection agency. Shelters are the first place worth considering unless you want a show quality purebred.
Hope I helped a bit !
