Fierce. Flawless. Frenchie.

With opinions on brunch (always boozy), work (something for lesser life forms), and everything (really, everything) in between, Renéharles is the ultimate New York City tastemaker. Whether he’s dining at the finest restaurants or luxuriating in his king-size bed, this discerning French bulldog accepts nothing less than the best.And if you don’t meet his standards? Well, he’ll let you know.

Manhattan’s most iconic French bulldog, who finds
his life of popularity and privilege both overwhelming
and exhausting. Boozy brunches, lunch-hour shopping
sprees, dinner at the hottest new spots in town—
René-Charles struts and snoozes his way through
the city that never sleeps with confidence and New
York attitude. For this snarky pup, life in the upper
crust is much more about who you’re wearing than
what you’re wearing. And if he doesn’t like either, be
prepared to hear about it. Because in the dog-eat-dog
world of René-Charles, you can call your apartment a
penthouse all you want, but if you’re not at the very
top, you might as well be in the lobby.
