Everything You Need to Know About Osiris:
Osiris is a Black Tri Merle Male French Bulldog with an easy-going temperament and a loving personality. Like all our dogs, he has been raised and cared for in our home as part of the family and never kept in a cage. Osiris loves to be around people and wants nothing more than a good belly rub, a roll in the grass, and some French Fry treats. He and Elsa have produced puppies fit for service dog training. Working in scent work, to alert the owner of allergens and sugar levels.
He stole our hearts the moment we met him, and we can’t wait for him to steal yours too!
In terms of looks, Osiris is very well proportioned with a muscular build and a nice square head. He has two bat-shaped ears and a distinctive coat pattern with patches of black, blue, and tan fur. Our favourite thing about Osiris (besides his affectionate nature) is his vibrant blue eye – a rarity in the dog world. We may be biased, but we think Osiris is one of the best-looking Frenchies we’ve ever come across.

Osiris would love to help your Frenchie have some gorgeous Frenchie puppies of her own, so why not get in touch today to set the wheels in motion? At Le Pepite Frenchies, our goal is to provide easy and seamless breedings wherever you are in the States, and we offer a wide range of breeding services to suit your needs and requirements.
✔️ In-house breedings, Side-by-side artificial insemination: This method is similar to natural breeding, In that the stud and the bitch are both present, but the semen is instead collected and inseminated into the female by us. Ovulation timing is important with this method, as the success rate is much higher when the damn has correct progesterone levels during heat. If you need some advice on ovulation timing, feel free to get in touch with us here. If your dam is in season and you’re in the local area, we can bring Osiris directly to you for a natural breeding. Alternatively, you’re more than welcome to bring her to us to meet Osiris in our home. Wherever the breeding takes place, with proper progesterone tests reading, we will be on hand the entire time to make sure everything goes smoothly. 3 in house artificial insemination per breeding available per breeding.
✔️ Frozen/Chilled-shipped semen: If meeting in person is not an option, fear not – we can send frozen/chilled semen to anywhere in the US. However, we are required by law to only send semen to approved insemination stations, semen depots or veterinary clinics, so you’ll need to find your nearest before placing an order.

Pied only expresses with 2 copies. Most exotic breeders don't like Pied at all, along with Brindle and Fawn.
We like Pied. It can come in all different colors.
We Will probably get some Lilac from our Pied, Dahlia, when bred with Osiris.. Together they will produce solid colors but carrying Pied. So you could produce your own Lilac Pied!
But what about Brindle and Fawn, how will if affect my program?
Brindle and fawn are DOMINANT genes.
-For example if you have: "ayay or ayat kbr/n" the dog will be brindle.
Brindles can come in many colors: Lilac, Blue, Chocolates, Black, even Isabella.
"dd kbr" would be a Blue Brindle dog.
If you have a dog that's "ayay or ayat ", NO brindle, the dog is then Fawn. "ay" always dominates over "at".
Fawns can also come in many colors: Lilac, Chocolates, Isabella, Blue
"ayay or ayat with dd" results in Blue Fawn
It is possible to breed out fawn, brindle, and pied. If you're looking to do so you're coming to the right place!
If the parent dog only carries one copy of each, you have a good chance of getting pups that are NOT carriers - which means NOT EXPRESSING
Even if you like your fawn and brindle females, that's ok too! They'll still produce awesome Merles and colors, with great DNA and pedigree!
Isabella is when the dog has 2 copies of Testable Chocolate and 2 copies of Blue, much like a Lilac dog having 2 Blue and 2 Coco- Untestable Chocolate.
Combine 2 copies of Blue, 2 Copies Testable, 2 Copies Coco and you have a new shade!
Add 2 copies Tan that's new new shade!
Osiris can make ALL the new shades.
The reason we say Carrying ISABELLA is because he carries one of each b and d plus co. Paired with another b d they can produce Isabella.

If you’re new to breeding, you may be wondering what “progesterone testing” is and why it matters.
Progesterone is a steroid hormone produced by the female during her heat cycle. This hormone is measured throughout heat AND pregnancy. This hormone is tested via a blood test.
This is important because the levels of progesterone will tell you when your female is ovulating, when the eggs are ready for insemination which is known as maturation, when ovulation is over, and when she’s in active labor.
This test is necessary when breeding your French bulldog. Proper timing is imperative.
Both for the purpose of artificial insemination and for timing of the due date.
Most breeders ONLY offer artificial insemination and allow natural breeding within their own stock. This is exactly what we do. Some studs can’t “get it in”, they may be too tall, too short, or have bad aim.
The MAIN reason we don’t offer natural breedings is because just like in humans, dogs too, can contract sexually transmitted infections and diseases. These diseases can cause infertility, birth defects, and death of puppies.
Therefore, we require all dams who breed with Osiris to progesterone test in order to guarantee a litter. Proper timing is key for a successful litter. You wouldn’t artificially inseminate a dog that’s not in heat, that would be a waste, just as much as inseminating before she has proper levels, or even missing it entirely and still inseminating. With proper progesterone testing, given the female is in good breeding health, we can guarantee a litter.
One litter constitutes as 2+ puppies.
Another reason for progesterone testing is knowing when the litter is due. French Bulldogs require C-sections. I know of some breeders who have done natural birth, but it’s risky. Puppies have large heads that can get stuck in the canal. This can cause death of the pup, death of the litter, and even death of the dam. Knowing the due date of your litter is imperative to know when to look for labor signs and when to start the reverse progesterone testing.
What to do when your female begins her heat!
Once you notice your female is in heat, test 7 days after the first sight of blood. All females are different, and all heats are different.
If you have males in your home, you may notice interest in the dam about a month before heats start. They can sense hormonal changes. The female might get picky with food as well before her heat cycle begins.
The first time Elsa was bred, it took her 18 days until she was ready to breed – we did 5 progesterone tests.
This past heat we tested at day 7 she was at a 2.2, day 8 she doubled to a 4.5. Since she doubled over night, it is expected the progesterone would double every day from then on, probably ovulating that night. We bred on days: 9, 11, 12(unintended natural tie), 13, and 14(unintended natural tie).
Ovulation takes place at around 6nl. The eggs will then need two days to mature before sperm can fertilize.
I like to inseminate when the female is at or above a 4.5-6(ovulation numbers) and repeat every 2 days for a total of 3 breedings.
To estimate due date count 63 days from ovulation. I
f you’d like to do an ultrasound, count 28-32 days from ovulation, and Xray is usually done at 58 days post ovulation or later.
Since you’ve done the progesterone testing and you know when her due date is, you’ll know when to start looking for labor signs.
Keep in mind the “due date” is just like any other due date. It’s a calculated and educated guess. Some dogs, if they’re carrying a large litter, may go a couple of days early. Other dogs may go 2-3 days later than expected. Any pups born before 58 day usually have poor survival rates.
Starting at 7 days prior to the due date you’ll start taking the dams rectal temperature 3x daily.
Normal canine temperature is 100-102.
The temperature will start to drop slowly, even bounce up and down. Her temperature will drop below 98 degrees 24 hours before she starts to push.
You’ll also start to notice behavioral changes like nesting (digging and building a nest), sleeping, restlessness, lack of appetite, possible vomiting and diarrhea the night before labor starts to clear out the system, and the biggest sign -right when labor starts- is heavy panting.
Once the temperature drops below 98, allow the dog to use the bathroom, wait 30 min to an hour and take the temperature again, if it’s still low or in the low 98s, take the dam to the vet. More than likely, it’s go time!
A reverse progesterone test will be done. Reverse progesterone testing is the same exact test as the initial progesterone test. The only difference is that, instead of the progesterone rising like while in heat, the progesterone levels will drop. When the progesterone drops, it induces labor and starts milk production. Once progesterone levels are at 3 or below, it is then safe to perform the c-section.
NEVER TAKE A LITTER BEFORE HORMONES ARE AT THE CORRECT LEVEL.
There are also other benefits to progesterone testing.
You can monitor split heats, delayed puberty, and silent heats.
Split heats are exactly what they sound like. Happening more often on first heats than anything, the dog may come into heat, it’ll drop off, and then come back.
Delayed Puberty is when the dam hasn’t had a heat by the time she becomes 2 years of age. Other testing will be done to rule out silent heats.
Silent heats happen when there is minimal discharge and no swelling at all. Progesterone testing must be run on the first day to determine if the breeding season has been missed or not.
Here's a glimpse at semen extraction!
Osiris has produced well for us!
Osiris has produced litters of 5,6,7 and 8!
Keep in mind not all dogs are this easy.
We worked hard to set ourselves up for success.
Prepping starts at 6 months of age with touch and Oxystud vitamins.
Touch is key so your dog doesn't become "shy".
Videos can only help so much, hands on experience is how you really learn! Try it out, if it doesn't work, keep trying! Eventually you'll get it!
Can't figure it out? Let us help! We'll even take a look under our scope for you!
Total Sperm - 624 million
Progressive motility - 86.44%
We prep him with oxystud chews and touch, vitamins, and more! We start around 6 months to get him used to the feeling.
Once males become of breeding age (seven-twelve months), their semen is then evaluated by a licensed veterinarian. Counts, mobility, and motility are all assessed.
Shape of heads, how they swim, and tails are evaluated.
We've been observing semen under a microscope at home as well. We use the Digital LCD Celestron Microscope II. It comes with 4x, 10x, 40x.
The Pictured document above is one of his first Semen analysis from when he was bred to Indigo!
He was evaluated by our licensed veterinarian.
Semen should NEVER be shipped under 150 million.
All shipped semen will come prepped and packaged by our veterinarian with an analysis included in the box.
