No. It’s not the best idea for several reasons. First of all, baked beans contain a lot of sugar, which is not good for any dog. Dogs get most of their energy from eating protein and long-chain carbohydrates. Therefore, you shouldn’t give them baked beans if they have diabetes. Beans baked in ketchup contain tomatoes, which are harmful to dogs.
In addition to sugar, baked beans contain a lot of sodium. Another additive that should not be included in your dog’s diet is salt because it can lead to dehydration and illness.
The onions and garlic in baked beans can make them toxic when eaten in large amounts. It is a known fact that if either of these ingredients is consumed in large quantities or regularly, your dog can develop anemia and red blood cell damage.
It is also possible to develop flatulence after eating too many beans. Even though it may seem harmless, albeit unpleasant to your nose, this will cause bloat and abdominal pain to your Frenchie. Human bloat is not a big deal, but it can be for French Bulldogs. Dog bloat is considered a medical emergency.
Nevertheless, baked beans should generally be avoided. The longer this is eaten, the more likely a dog develops pancreatitis or damaged red blood cells. Contact your veterinarian immediately if your French Bulldog has an allergic reaction to baked beans.
However, it is unlikely that baked beans will cause serious health problems in small amounts. Dogs shouldn’t mind if they lick up some spilled sauce or eat a spoonful of beans for dinner. Be sure to keep an eye on your pet and contact your vet if they show signs of illness.

A small amount of baked beans does not pose any significant risk of illness to Frenchies.
Despite this, you should not actively feed your French Bulldog beans as they contain a lot of sugar and salt, making them unhealthy. You should not feed baked beans to a dog who eats kibble, as they probably already consume more sugar than is healthy for them.
The consumption of large quantities of baked beans by French Bulldogs can cause illnesses. If you want to keep your Frenchie safe, don’t give him baked beans. Instead, give him a legume such as peas or even some kind of bean.
