The Boston Terrier French Bulldog mix is a fun and sassy combination of the best that each breed has to offer. If you are looking for a dog that is going to stay on the smaller side, but will bring lots of personality into your home, you’ll fall for this sweet mix of two of the best dog breeds.
The appearance of the Boston Terrier French Bulldog mix
The Boston Terrier is a small to medium-sized dog, and can weigh anywhere from 10 to 25lbs. At his shoulder, he can range anywhere from 1ft to 1ft 3in at the shoulder. He’s a compact but agile and energetic. Combine these physical characteristics with those of the Frenchie who can weigh between 16 and 28lbs, and stand between 11in and 1ft at the shoulder.
On average the Boston Terrier Frenchie mix would not exceed 25lbs, which makes him a great companion for families of all sizes. Females typically weigh less than males, and both require plenty of walks to keep their weight in check.
While your dog will benefit from regular exercise and plenty of active play, he doesn’t necessarily need a yard for this. He’s well-suited to life in an apartment or townhouse.
You’ll find any number of combinations in coat color in your mixed breed dog. He may be solid white, brindle, cream, or have a multi-colored smooth coat.
Average expected lifespan
One of the great aspects about smaller dog breeds is that they are less likely to develop so many of the illnesses that larger breeds do. This can lead to an extended lifespan over say what you’d see with a Golden Retriever. The Boston Terrier’s expected lifespan is between 13 and 15 years, while the Frenchies is 11 to 14 years.
This means that your family will get many wonderful years with your dog as a part of your life.
Personality of the Boston Frenchie mix
The Frenchie is a smart and affectionate dog who needs to spend a lot of quality time with his family. This breed craves attention from his people, and with good socialization, he’ll be a great companion to every member of the family. The Boston Terrier has a very similar personality, coupled with high intelligence. When you get a Boston Terrier French Bulldog mix you get a dog that is fun, energetic, happy, playful, and incredibly faithful to his family.
They can be a little bit stubborn at times, and may seem to almost be defiant, but your dog will quickly change his tune with the right type of training.
Training your mix breed dog
Given the high intelligence of both breeds that contribute to your little mix pup, you’ll find that it’s fairly easy to train your dog. Always use positive reinforcement, and never hit or punish your dog when you are training him. Remember that everyone in the family should have a role in training your Boston Terrier French Bulldog mix. From working on a house training schedule, to teaching basic obedience, the more of his family that works with him the more eager he’ll be to please.
