Boston Terrier French Bulldog Mix – (AKA Frenchton Dog)

The Boston Terrier French Bulldog Mix dog, also very commonly referred to and known by its nickname “The Frenchton dog”, is a designer dog breed that comes to life after one Boston Terrier parent is cross bred with one French Bulldog parent.

Unlike other cross breeds out there where the offspring is cross bred to take 50% after either of its parents, it’s widely believes that the Boston Terrier French Bulldog Mix dog is crossbred by a percentage of 75% from its French Bulldog parent and 25% from its Boston Terrier parent.

Boston Terrier French Bulldog Mix Physical Appearance

Size, Height & Weight

The Boston Terrier French Bulldog Mix dog is considered to be a fairly small sized dog, although it certainly isn’t the smallest among all cross breeds out there.

You can find tinier cross breeds if that’s what you’re looking for, in which case you should be searching for toy cross breeds.

On average, the Boston Terrier French Bulldog Mix dog stands at anywhere between 13 to 16 inches in height and anywhere between 13 to 25 pounds in weight.

Coat Color

Some of the most common coat colors that the Boston Terrier French Bulldog Mix dog is known to come in are white, cream, white and black, brindle, tan, golden.

Boston Terrier French Bulldog Mix Temperament

Training – Easy Or Difficult?

Because of its innate desire to please its owner, the Boston Terrier French Bulldog Mix is (generally speaking) a relatively easy dog to train and won’t be giving you much difficulties along the way.

However, and this is usually the exception to the rule, the Boston Terrier French Bulldog Mix dog may sometimes inherit a bit of stubbornness from its French Bulldog parent, which may ultimately lead to some training difficulties along the way.

Companion Dogs

Because of the fact that both of the Boston Terrier French Bulldog Mix dog’s parents are companion dogs, this also means that this cross breed makes for an excellent companion dog itself, and not much of a good working dog if that’s what you’re looking for instead.

So, and because this cross breed is purely a companion dog, you’re going to have to make sure that you’re able to give your Boston Terrier French Bulldog Mix dog all the affection, love, care in the world, as well as a significant portion of your time on a daily basis.

If you’re not up for such a commitment for whatever reason that may be, then perhaps the Boston Terrier French Bulldog Mix is not the ideal designer dog breed for you.

French Terrier Living Conditions

Indoors VS Outdoors

For anyone looking for a designer dog breed to live with them in an indoors apartment, the Boston Terrier French Bulldog Mix dog is an excellent option as it’s perfectly suited for life indoors.

The Boston Terrier French Bulldog Mix dog doesn’t need a large backyard to play around in for the majority of their day like some other, larger cross breeds do, and is perfectly fine with spending the majority of their day inside an apartment because of how small they are in size.

Exercise & Physical Activity

The Boston Terrier French Bulldog Mix dog is an offspring to two parents that don’t need to get that much exercise and physical activity on a daily level, which also means that you won’t have to worry about exercising your Frenchton that much either.

Generally speaking, Frenchton dogs will be happy if given anywhere from 30 to 45 minutes of exercise a day outside the house.

And, the good thing is that you don’t have to do any vigorous type of exercise with your Frenchton if you’re not exactly a fan of exercise yourself, a simple and light walk outside the house will do this cross breed dog just fine.

Young Children At Home

Because of the fact that the Boston Terrier French Bulldog Mix dog is a pure companion dog and is so small in size, it greatly enjoys the company of young children you may have at home and has a ton of fun playing around with them.

However, before this happens you must make sure that your Boston Terrier French Bulldog Mix dog has been properly trained and socialized beforehand and that any young children that come into contact with this cross breed have also been taught how to properly interact and play with it to avoid any unwanted harmful accidents.

The older, more aware and mature your children are, the better and safer it would be to have them come in contact with the Boston Frenchie.

Other Pets At Home

At first, your Boston Terrier French Bulldog Mix dog may prove to be a little bit difficult to properly integrate and get along with other pets you may have at home, but with some socialization, patience and time things should all work out and your Boston Frenchie should sooner rather than later get along with your other household pets.

Weather Conditions

Given the fairly small size of the Boston Terrier French Bulldog Mix dog and the fact that it has a short coat, this cross breed is best suited for climates that are ideally moderate in temperature, with areas that tend to get a little bit hot at times also being sometimes fine as well.

You do, however, need to keep in mind that such a small sized dog with a short coat like the one it has isn’t going to do well in climates that tend to get really cold in temperature.

So, if you live in an area where it tends to get really, really cold and aren’t able to keep your indoors space properly heated and cozy, then the Boston Terrier French Bulldog Mix dog is probably not a good option for you to consider.

French Bulldog Boston Terrier Mix Health

The good thing about the Boston Terrier French Bulldog Mix dog is that compared to other cross breeds that sometimes tend to have high risk of suffering from health complications down the line, this cross breed is the opposite.

This is because one of the main reasons the Boston Terrier French Bulldog Mix dog was originally bred was in order to greatly decrease health risks that the purebred French Bulldog used to have a high chance of suffering from in their lifetimes.

And, up until this writing, this plan has worked very well from the looks of it.

This does not mean, however, that you can expect your Boston Terrier French Bulldog Mix dog to live a life that’s free of any health problems and concerns as they grow up.

This only means that the risk of this cross breed suffering from specific health problems and concerns as they grow up is significantly less than its French Bulldog parent.

On average, and assuming you’re able to support your Boston Terrier French Bulldog Mix dog with everything they need to live a healthy and happy life, this cross breed will go on to live a lifespan that lasts anywhere between 11 to 14 years.

Frenchton Dog Care

Grooming

Much thanks to its short coat, the Boston Terrier French Bulldog Mix dog gives their owner the privilege of being able to follow a somewhat relaxed and laid back approach when it comes to brushing schedules.

While other cross breeds out there with longer coats that tend to get tangled up real fast need brushing up to 2 times a day, the Boston Terrier French Bulldog Mix dog only requires you to give its coat a good brush around 2 to 3 times a week.

As far as other grooming practices you have to know about with this cross breed, nail clipping/trimming should be done one to two times a month and baths should only be given when needed (i.e avoid excessive baths for no valid reason, as this can lead to skin and coat damage with time).
