Also called a Faux French Bulldog, Frenchbo Bulldog, and Boston Frenchie, the Frenchton is a cross between the French Bulldog and Boston Terrier breeds. It possesses the athletic nature of the Boston Terrier and sturdy built of the French bulldog. The Frenchton has a round-shaped head, flat face, snub nose, erect ears, straight legs, and short tail. Their coat can come in multiple colors including black, brindle, black and white, brown, golden, and cream.
Being bred from the French Bulldog and Boston Terrier breeds, the Frenchton has the personality and independence of the French Bulldog and the intelligence and friendliness of the Boston Terrier. The Frenchton is also a playful dog, has an affectionate disposition, and craves human attention.
Care and Grooming
Because the Frenchton has short hair, they do not need much grooming. Brushing twice a week and bathing them when they get dirty would be sufficient. Also be sure to clean its ears with a damp, warm cloth and clip its nails around every two weeks. Brush its teeth to lessen possibilities of tooth decay.
Although the Frenchton is a playful breed, these dogs have a laid-back attitude too and are well suited for apartment life. Similar to their French Bulldog and Boston Terrier parents, a moderate amount of exercises like a daily walk or little bit of jogging in the park would be sufficient to keep them healthy. You can also engage them in a lot of interesting indoor games. However, just like their parents, they might not be well suited to extreme temperature conditions, so make sure you take the necessary precautions when taking them out in the heat or cold.
The Frenchton is an intelligent breed but can sometimes be stubborn or demanding like its French Bulldog parent, which might make training a challenge at times.
