15 French Bulldog Mix You Should Know

19 mins read
Animal crossbreeding is not a new trend but an old breeding act. Having a French Bulldog mix shouldn’t come as a surprise to many.

You see, the French Bulldog is one of the most popular dog breeds in the United States, and as of 2022, they are the second most popular from the fourth position they held in 2019.

There has been a growing demand for everything French Bulldogs in the US, and getting a French Bulldog mix is one of them.

French Bulldog Mix

One of the reasons we usually have several mixes is simply because of the curious mind of humans. Humans love to experiment and see results (whether fail or bad).

Experiments are not just restricted to science. We all try to carry out experiments and see what works. In our case, it could be tech, media, marketing, or animals.

Breeders try these “experiments” also. They would bring two dogs to mate and see what they could produce. Some would even go as far as mating two different animals together, and we have successfully mixed, but they are called usually called hybrid animals.

Examples of such include:

  • Zonkey (Zebra & Donkey)
  • Geep (Goat & Sheep)
  • Savannah Cat (Domestic Cat & Serval)
  • Beefalo (Buffalo & Cow)

They usually have different features, and a lot of them look weird.

But enough about them, right? In our French bulldog community, we have more than 30 Frenchie mixes that anyone could take a look at.

In this article, we explore 20 different popular French Bulldog mixes (both common and uncommon mixes). We explain these combinations so well, so as a dog lover or enthusiast, you don’t get confused when you see one.

Asides from that, we would educate you on these mixes, so if you are considering getting one, you know which to buy.

Often, any French Bulldog mix would have high energy levels and need much exercise. We encourage dog owners to always allow for exercise, especially if they live in an apartment.

Every Frenchie mix listed would be categorized into the popular and not-so-popular ones, but at the end of the day, everything would always depend on the buyer’s preference, which in this case, is you.

Someone once said the name “Frug” sounds like this breed would be ill-tempered, and you know what?! It isn’t at all but the opposite. Frug dogs get that quite a lot because of their name and grumpy look.

We carried out independent research to know which mixes are the most popular and common; we found out that it is the Frug dog.

Frugs are generally friendly dogs. They are confident, playful, loyal, can be mischievous, and would have behavioral issues that could cause the owner worry if not given proper attention.

Usually, the coat color would largely depend on the parent. If you come across a pink Frug, that mix isn’t rare, but it results from albinism, and the dog would suffer severe health issues later.

Some of their most common health issues include:

  • Skin Diseases and Infections
  • Ear Infections
  • Eye Diseases such as dry eyes
  • Brachycephalic Syndrome

It loves playing a lot and barks only when necessary, so you must pay serious attention whenever your Frenchton is barking.

Usually, a Frenchton’s parents have eyes, knee joint, and respiratory problems. Still, the most recurring health problem associated with a Frenchton is respiratory problems which could make it hard to breathe during exercise or strenuous activity.

Some also call this hybrid the Mexican Frenchie, and it is recommended the owner is not a first-time dog owner. It is an added advantage if the owner has ever previously owned a Chihuahua.

This dog mix can inherit some behaviors from its parents especially being talkative and yapping. While we know that a typical Frenchie doesn’t bark so much, the Chihuahua is the complete opposite.

The French Bullhuahua is good around children, but it is recommended you get them if you are single or not too much in the family. They usually pick out a favorite human to bond with and could grow territorial with that person. Like a typical French Bulldog, they love being the center of attraction.

Some of the common health problems are:

They are also prone to health issues, some of which include:

This is a mix between the French Bulldog and the Beagle dog. They are well-behaved dogs and can adapt to living in an apartment. These dogs don’t tolerate very hot or too cold weather, so you should be sure to keep the temperature warm.

They are very stubborn, and this could make training them to be very challenging. One thing to also note about these dogs is that they have very high energy, and their diet should reflect that. Frengles should always get at least 30 minutes of exercise every day.

We all know that the American Pitbull is a very popular dog in the US, and many people like to show it off. It is rather fierce but still popular amongst dog lovers. Having a French Bulldog mix with a Pitbull is a no-brainer.

French Pitbulls are friendly, and one must train them properly to keep them around kids. They are recognized by a number of associations, such as the American Canine Hybrid Club, Designer Dogs Kennel Club, and Dog Registry of America, Inc.

If you have a French Pitbull, you should know that they need anywhere between 30 minutes to 1 hour of exercise, and if your house has a yard, this is much better.

Spottings

Sometimes, I always wonder what breeders think before they crossbred animals. The most unusual mixes happen and turn out to be beautiful. Some are disasters, but a French Bulldog and a dalmatian mix are most certainly unusual.

I know that many wouldn’t agree with me that this particular French bulldog mix is unusual, but whether it is a beautiful mix or not, I am not here to judge that. I believe that the beauty of any French Bulldog mix or any dog or animal is determined differently by every individual.

The French Bullmatian are very good companion dogs who are family-friendly and loyal. They always have a spotted coat inherited from one of their parents (the Dalmatian, obviously), but there is a significant difference here. Most time, the color of the spottings could be red, black, brown, fawn or brindle.

This is a popular hybrid mix between French bulldogs and American bulldogs in high demand. They usually have this stocky appearance.

Nevertheless, American French Bulldogs are prone to have health problems which include:

  • Allergies

  • Skin issues

The mix between a French Bulldog and a Rottweiler is a French Bullweiler. Their appearance is usually different, which could be attributed to several factors, including which parent would have the dominant genes.

They are anywhere between medium to large, and they can be aggressive. The aggressiveness comes from his Rottweiler side and not the French Bulldog side.

They are high-energy dogs and would require up to 1 hour of exercise.

Attention and supervision are things you must always give a French Bullweiler. They could be naughty dogs in your absence and destroy your property, such as your furniture.

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some popular FAQs below;

What is a good mix with a French bulldog?

A good mix with a French Bulldog is when the designer dog has great features and characteristics. Normally, the two parents of a hybrid dog would have their shortcomings, which could be their behavior or, more importantly, their health. A good mix would reduce these issues or eliminate them.

What mix is a fluffy French bulldog?

Fluffy Frenchies are not mixed or hybrid dogs. Many believe them to be so, but they are purebred Frenchies who happen to have long and fluffy coats. However, the American Kennel Club (AKC) does not recognize them. This could be the reason why people think they are designer dogs.

What two breeds make a Frenchie?

The French Bulldog was created by a smaller version or a toy-sized version of the Bulldog. They are not mixed with any breed to be created, but they are a breed on their own.

Are French Bulldog mixes healthier?

Not every one of them, but many French Bulldog mixes are much healthier than their parents, not just the French Bulldog. These make these particular designer dogs attractive to dog lovers and potential owners.

Conclusion

If you plan to get a French Bulldog mix, your choice ultimately depends on your preferences. There are more than 50 French Bulldog mixes, which I only mentioned and explained 15. You can always pick dogs outside the 15 listed.
