The Faux Frenchbo Bulldog is a hybrid mix of two small-sized breeds, the Boston  Terrier, and the French Bulldog. The intentional crossbreeding of these two parents is intended to produce a healthier dog with all the looks of the French Bulldog. The desired look captures 75% of the Frenchie and 25% of the Boston Terrier. If the Faux Frenchbo Bulldog mostly resembles the French Bulldog in appearance, it gets its athleticism from the Boston Terrier. As hybrids go, the Faux Frenchbo Bulldog is a popular mix, and though the history is not extensive, owners can find significant information on this hybrid.

Faux Frenchbo Bulldog Breed History

The Faux Frenchbo Bulldog is a hybrid mix of the Boston Terrier and the French Bulldog. The hybrid is a modern mix that has gained significant popularity. Though standards are not available, several registries recognize the Faux Frenchbo Bulldog including the American Canine Hybrid Club, the Designer Breed Registry, the Designer Dog Kennel Club, the Dog Registry of America, and the International Designer Canine Registry. Though information is available on the hybrid, there is no true standard and owners should review the histories and character traits of the parent breeds to understand the possible dispositions and traits of the Faux Frenchbo Bulldog. The Boston Terrier is of the Terrier and Bulldog families, having risen from the experimental cross-breeding between now extinct English White Terriers, Old English Bulldogs, and French Bulldogs during the late 1800s. Unsure of what to call this young breed of dog, fanciers attempted to associate them with the Bull and Terrier groups but faced resistance from the well-established breeds in the respective groups. Finally, the Boston Terrier was decided on to pay homage to the region where the breed was developed, and American Kennel Club recognized the breed in 1893 as one of the first non-sporting breeds and was the first of the ten “made-in-America” breeds recognized. The All-American breed was chosen for the bicentennial dog and is the official dog of Massachusetts. The French Bulldog is a descendent of the ancient Molossians. The ancestors of this breed were bred for bull baiting but thankfully, this sport was eventually outlawed. The French Bulldog came to be when the English Bulldog was crossed with small Terriers. The cross, considered too small for English tastes, were exported to France where they became in vogue as companions and later, the French Bulldogs soon made their way west to the United States. They were recognized by American Kennel Club in 1989.

Faux Frenchbo Bulldog Breed Appearance

The Faux Frenchbo Bulldog is a small-sized hybrid of the French Bulldog and the Boston Terrier. The desired appearance mostly resembles the French Bulldog with a large, square head and big, round eyes. The eyes do not protrude as much as the Boston Terrier but may bulge to a greater degree than the French Bulldog parent. The Faux Frenchbo Bulldog has the same bat ears of its French Bulldog parent, which are long and stand straight up, like a bat’s ears. The body is sturdy, but the legs are slightly longer than the French Bulldog and allow for greater athleticism in the hybrid.

Faux Frenchbo Bulldog Breed Maintenance

Short bristle brushes are ideal for removing any loose or dead hair from the short and fine coat.

Faux Frenchbo Bulldogs have medium energy with moderate exercise intensity needs, especially if their dispositions resemble the French Bulldog.
