Frenchton temperament

Loving Companion: Frenchtons love people and have very amiable personalities! Your Frenchton will not be happy if left alone for long periods of time. In fact, some owners say Frenchtons are better in pairs!

Good with Children: This breed does well with children. Frenchtons are gentle, affectionate, and get along with children and other pets.

Lower Exercise Need: Frenchtons make great indoor dogs; a 20-30 minute walk each day should be sufficient. Add some indoor play, such as tug of war, to give them additional gentle exercise. Depending on which breed your Frenchton favors, it may need more or less or exercise. Some Frenchtons are prone to Brachycephalic Obstructive Syndrome, which means they can have trouble breathing or overheating if exercised too much or in hot conditions.

With their big ears and bright eyes, the Frenchton is alert and will bark if they encounter anything unusual.

Gentle: Frenchtons often have a gentle and sweet demeanor. This can make them great companions for families, including households with children.

Comical: Boston Terriers are known for their quirky and entertaining behaviors, and Frenchton puppies can exhibit similar comical traits. They may make amusing expressions and engage in playful antics.

Playful, loving, bright-eyed, and humorous at times, this breed is sure to steal hearts everywhere.

Remember that individual puppies can vary in their personality due to genetic factors, upbringing, and socialization. Spending time with the puppy’s parents and interacting with the litter can give you a better idea of the range of personalities you might find in Frenchton puppies.

Frenchton Breed history

Frenchtons, also called Frostons and Boston Bulldogs, are a cross between the French Bulldog and the Boston Terrier. They were first bred by designer breeders in the 1990s.

French Bulldogs are known to have a lot of health issues and by crossing the French Bulldog with the Boston Terrier, the hope is that Frenchtons will have fewer health issues.

However, while it’s true that inbreeding leads to unhealthy dogs, simply mixing two purebreds doesn’t make a healthier breed.

With any breed of pups, the genes from both parents are sorted out randomly. Puppies may inherit a susceptibility to the conditions of one or both of their parents.

Since mixed breed dogs have not been tracked for health as purebreds have, it can appear at first glance that mixed breeds are healthier. However, that is not necessarily true.

In best-case scenarios, the Frenchtons are healthier than French Bulldogs.
Frenchtons go by many names, including Frostons, Frenchbo, Boston Bulldogs, Boston Frenchie, Bulldog Terrier, and Faux French Bulldog.
They can be registered with American Canine Hybrid Club, Designer Breed Registry, and International Designer Canine Registry.

While there isn’t much history on Frenchtons yet, learning about the French Bulldog and the Boston Terrier will help you understand the breed better!

Although they have “French” in their names, the French Bulldog breed has its origins in Nottingham, England.

Small, toy dogs resembling Bulldogs were popular with English lace workers in the 1800s, but as the Industrial Revolution came and changed the sewing industry, many of these workers lost their jobs and moved to France.

They took their toy bulldogs with them, and soon French shopkeepers were also in love with the small dog.

Over time, these toy dogs were bred with other small breeds, and through this breeding, the French Bulldog breed was eventually established.

The French Bulldog became associated with excellence and the Paris upper class, and by the end of the 1800s, the breed had become popular across Europe and the Americas.

The American Kennel Club recognized the French Bulldog breed in 1898.

Named after its origin city of Boston, Massachusetts, the Boston Terrier is one of the few dog breeds with its origin in the United States.

While accounts vary on its exact origin, most agree that the first Boston Terrier was a cross between a Bulldog and the English White Terrier (now extinct) in the late 1800s.

Originally called Boston Bull Terriers or American Bull Terriers, the name was changed to Boston Terrier and recognized as a breed by the American Kennel Club in 1893.

The Boston Terrier became the first AKC breed to be developed in the United States.


Frenchton Average size

Frenchtons, or Frostons, are usually 10-14 inches tall at the shoulder and weigh about 15-20 pounds when adults.

Average Frenchton lifespan

The typical lifespan of a Frenchton is 12-15 years.

Frenchton body features

French Bulldogs and Boston Terriers have triangular ears that stand tall, sometimes called ‘bat ears.’ They also have large, square heads, wrinkles, and extremely short noses.

Their body build is compact and muscular, and they usually have short tails. 

Frenchtons are usually a combination of brown, black, white, cream, and occasionally brindle. They have a short, smooth coat and will not tolerate extreme temperatures.

grooming Your Frenchton Puppy

Frenchtons, also called Frostons, are relatively easy to keep groomed and clean because of their short, smooth coat. You should brush your Frenchton several times a week with a soft bristle brush and bathe as needed. 

Twice a year, Frenchtons have a heavy shedding season. During these times, make sure you are brushing and bathing regularly to remove loose hair. 

Since Frenchtons are prone to oral health problems, it’s important to brush their teeth a few times a week to remove buildup. 

You’ll also want to keep their ears and eyes clean. Wiping the ears and eyes with a warm, damp cloth will prevent build-up and infections. 

A Frenchton’s nails will need to be trimmed about twice a month.

Keeping Your Frenchton Puppy Healthy

Due to their unique body build and stubby noses, a few health concerns are specific to the Bulldog family, including Frenchtons.

First, be on the alert for brachycephalic airway syndrome. Frenchton’s compressed noses and airways can make it difficult for the dog to breathe during exercise. This is compounded if the dog has an elongated soft palate or a narrow nasal cavity.

Pay close attention to your Frenchton during exercise, and see a vet if your dog seems to have trouble breathing during times of minimal stress or exercise.

Second, Frenchtons are not good swimmers due to their front-heavy build. Although they enjoy the water, Frenchtons should not be left unattended near bodies of water, swimming pools, or even full bathtubs.

Like all dog breeds, Frenchtons are susceptible to hip and elbow dysplasia, two of the most common health issues among dogs.

Hip and elbow dysplasia occurs when the leg or hip becomes weakened, and it can result in arthritis or potential lameness if not addressed.

One of the best ways to prevent this is by keeping your Frenchton from excessive running on hard surfaces, especially when they are puppies.

You also can protect your dog from another common health problem: obesity. One of the best ways to extend your dog’s life is by feeding them the correct amount of food and giving them adequate exercise.

Typical Frenchton Allergens

Allergens are caused by dander, which is dead skin cells. Both animals and humans shed these dead skin cells. Dander is attached to the hair that dogs shed.

Frenchtons are not considered allergen-friendly dogs. However, they do have a short coat and are a smaller dog so it will be easier to keep shedding and allergens at a minimum with bathing and brushing.

If you or someone in your home has animal allergy concerns, please consult your health provider before adopting a puppy.

  • Do Frenchtons do well in extreme temperatures?
    No, Frenchtons cannot take either extremely hot or extremely cold temperatures. It’s best to keep them indoors if you live in an extreme climate.
  • What is Brachycephalic Obstructive Syndrome and do Frenchtons suffer from it?
    “Brachycephalic” means “shortened head.” Dogs in the Brachycephalic group have shorter, squished neck and skull structures that can cause them to have breathing issues. Dogs in the Brachycephalic group may snore, drool, snort, and have trouble breathing while exercising. Some Brachycephalic dogs include Boston Terriers, Pugs, Bulldogs, Mastiffs, and Frenchtons. Brachycephalic Syndrome should not hurt your Frenchton, but you should be careful not to overdo it when exercising your Frenchton.
  • Do Frenchtons bark a lot?
    How much a dog barks depends on the individual, but Frenchtons are known as quiet dogs and not as excessive barkers. They will bark to get your attention or alert you to suspicious activity, but they are not yappy.
  • Do Frenchtons drool?
    Because Frenchtons are in the Brachycephalic group they may be prone to drooling, especially after eating. They may also snort, wheeze, and snore.
  • Are Frenchtons healthy dogs?
    Since they are a crossbreed, Frenchtons may avoid some of the genetic disorders common in their purebred parents. However, you should still be alert. Be sure to watch for signs of overheating or difficulty breathing due to their Brachycephalic traits, for one thing. Also watch your Frenchton’s prominent eyes for signs of trouble and watch for joint issues such as patellar luxation.
  • Where can you register a Frenchton?
    Because they are a designer breed, you cannot register a Frenchton with the AKC. However, they can be registered with American Canine Hybrid Club, Designer Breed Registry, and International Designer Canine Registry.
  • Can Frenchtons swim?
    Because of their front-heavy body structure, Frenchtons are not good swimmers. If you want to take them swimming in deep water a life jacket is a must.
  • Are Frenchtons good with kids and other pets?
    Yes, Frenchtons tend to be friendly with other pets and gentle with children. However, Frenchton puppies are small and fragile, so you should teach your children how to play with them gently.
  • Are Frenchtons high energy?
    Energy levels in Frenchtons can vary because their parents have different energy levels. Boston Terriers tend to be high energy, while Frenchies tend to be more laid back. Your Frenchton could take after either side. Overall, Frenchtons tend to have a medium amount of energy.
  • Are Frenchtons easy to train?
    When it comes to training, Frenchtons are intelligent but a little stubborn sometimes. They should be able to learn quickly, but sometimes their willful side makes them reluctant to obey their owners. With time, patience, and firmness, your Frenchton should learn to respect and obey you.
