Frenchton Guide: Facts about the Boston Terrier and French Bulldog mix
French Bulldogs originated in England and were bred as companion dogs in the 1800s. Like the Boston Terrier, they are stocky and have compact bodies that make them easy to transport whether you’re going to the park or on long distances. Temperament wise, they are mild-mannered and are highly affectionate with their owners.
The common dog coat colors of the French Bulldog come in white, brindle, fawn or red, tan, or brindle and white. They may be sometimes mistaken as the Boston Terrier because of their dog coat but the main difference is usually their ears and the markings. Boston Terriers have black markings dominantly displayed in their back and white in their bellies which is why they gained the moniker of the American Gentleman.
When mixed together, the Frenchton breed is quite an adorable little one! They are sociable and playful dogs; they can be very friendly even with strangers.
