We’re also seeing many more French Bulldog mixes with the rise in popularity of this breed. We believe that both purebred French Bulldogs and mixed-breed dogs can equally become wonderful pets.

The 20 Common French Bulldog Mixes

One of the most popular French Bulldog mixes is the Frenchton. French Bulldogs and Boston Terriers have similar appearances, so it may be difficult to identify Frenchtons at first glance. While purebred Boston Terriers have coats with tuxedo patterns, you’ll find more coat color and pattern varieties in Frenchtons. Some Frenchtons can also end up having a solid coat.

Both French Bulldogs and Boston Terriers have playful personalities, so life is sure to be more fun and entertaining when a Frenchton is involved.

2. Frenchie Pug (French Bulldog x Pug)

If you’re a fan of the French Bulldog’s wrinkles, chances are you’ll love the Frenchie Pug. Frenchie Pugs are known to have adorable wrinkles on their faces and bodies, and they’re usually slightly smaller than the average size of a French Bulldog.

Frenchie Pugs often have a good sense of humor and love to play. However, they’re also perfectly content being lapdogs or accompanying you everywhere within the safe confines of a cozy dog backpack or purse.

3. Froodle (French Bulldog x Poodle)

Considering how popular Poodle-mixes are, it’s no surprise that the Froodle exists. These dogs are usually bred with either a Toy Poodle or Miniature Poodle and a French Bulldog. Overall, the Froodle is a happy marriage of two wonderful dog breeds with deep roots in France, but their appearances and personalities can vary greatly due to how different these two dog breeds are. Some Froodles can have straight hair, while others will have a curly coat. Poodles tend to be more active and energetic, so a Froodle can end up requiring more exercise than a standard French Bulldog.

4. French Buillon (French Bulldog x Papillon)

The French Buillon is another wonderful combination of two French dog breeds. One of the most notable physical features of French Buillons is their ears. These dogs have a mix of the French Bulldog’s bat ears and the Papillon’s butterfly ears. Some can also adopt more of the appearance of a Papillon and have adorable tufts of hair on their ears.

French Buillons can have a lot more energy than French Bulldogs. They’ll love to run around and explore their neighborhoods, and they’ll rarely ever pass on the opportunity to play with you.

5. French Bull Tzu (French Bulldog x Shih Tzu)

French Bull Tzus are small yet packed with personality. These cross breeds of French Bulldogs and Shih Tzus aren’t known to be shy, and they’ll confidently approach strangers for attention and pets. They tend to have soft, wavy coats. While they’re not completely hypoallergenic, they do tend to shed less than French Bulldogs normally do.

French Bull Tzus don’t really do well being home alone for too long. Fortunately, they’re usually the size of toy-breed dogs, so you can carry them around with you wherever you go.

6. Frengle (French Bulldog x Beagle)

Frengles are usually adventurous dogs that love being outdoors. They can be a bit independent and have a mind of their own, but they’re loyal and loving at heart. Frengles can have a lot of energy and require a lot of mental stimulation, especially if they inherit more Beagle traits. They’ll enjoy playing hide and seek and snooping around for treats hidden around the house. They can also have a strong prey drive and desire to smell and investigate everything. So, you can expect even the shortest walks with Frengles to take a long time.

7. French Pomerbull (French Bulldog x Pomeranian)

French Pomerbulls tend to be small dogs that you can carry with you everywhere. Due to their cuteness and compact size, this Pomeranian mix is prone to not getting enough exercise because you can pick them up so easily. French Pomerbulls aren’t also known to be demanding of exercise. So, it’s important to be mindful of playing with them and going on walks to avoid excessive weight gain and obesity.

Fortunately, French Pomerbulls are loyal and will love nothing more than spending all their time with you. So, it’s relatively easy to get them to play and accompany you on walks around the neighborhood.

8. French Pit (French Bulldog x American Pit Bull Terrier)

Crossbreeding a French Bulldog with an American Pit Bull Terrier often develops French Pit puppies that have a less intimidating appearance than the American Pit Bull Terrier. They still often inherit the loving and loyal personalities of both breeds, and they generally love being around people.

French Pits can be a bit mouthy and have a strong set of jaws, so it’s important to have a good stock of durable toys and chews. They’re pretty playful and will absolutely love and appreciate getting new toys. So, it’s always a delight to show them a new toy and see how they react.

9. French Bullweiner (French Bulldog x Dachshund)

Some French Bullweiners will inherit the French Bulldog’s bat ears, while others will have the Dachshund’s floppy ears. Either way, French Bullweiners are adorable dogs known for having stubby legs, and it’s always fun watching them scurry around from place to place.

These dogs make wonderful companion dogs, and they tend to be very people-oriented and attentive to how their owners are doing. So, don’t be surprised if they start to act extra playful in an attempt to cheer you up if they notice that you’re looking a bit down.

10. Frenchnese (French Bulldog x Havanese)

Both French Bulldogs and Havaneses love being the center of attention and receiving praise. So, you can expect Frenchneses to embrace being the main lead and provide endless amounts of entertainment. These playful dogs are also known to be intelligent and quick to learn new tricks, especially if there’s a lot of positive affirmation and treats involved. Combining these traits with their eagerness to please makes them excellent candidates for first-time dog owners.

11. French Bulhuahua (French Bulldog x Chihuahua)

Both French Bulldogs and Chihuahuas have big personalities, so it’s no surprise that French Bulhuahuas tend to be bold and make their presence known. They’re usually not shy and aren’t afraid to speak their mind. Chihuahuas are known for their strong loyalty and protectiveness, but when they’re bred with the more laidback French Bulldog, they often produce a litter of French Bulhuahua puppies that are usually more easygoing. They’re typically friendly with strangers and don’t mind meeting new people.

12. French Bulloxer (French Bulldog x Boxer)

French Bulloxers (French Bulldog & Boxer mixes) are known for their cheerful attitudes and love for fun. These playful companions usually require daily exercise because they have much energy to expend. They don’t usually grow larger than a medium-sized dog, and they’re usually a good mix of being playful and gentle. So, they’re good candidates for families with children. They’ll appreciate being a part of all the action and being included on family trips. French Bulloxers are sure to create wonderful and fond memories with your family.

13. Frenchie Bichon (French Bulldog x Bichon Frise)

Frenchie Bichons are small and adorably fuzzy dogs that will love nothing more than to play with you all day. These dogs are often intelligent and eager to please, so they’re an excellent option for first-time dog owners. They’re also usually patient with children, but children must be taught to interact with them appropriately. Frenchie Bichons tend to be really small, so they’re more prone to accidents and injuries from improper handling.

14. Frenchie Pei (French Bulldog x Shar-Pei)

Frenchie Peis are another mix of two wrinkly dog breeds. You may find yourself spending extra time grooming them and making sure their wrinkles are clean and dry. However, all the care is worth the effort because of their loving and loyal personalities.

Shar-Peis can be challenging for novice dog owners to train because of their strong protective instincts. Crossbreeding them with the more laidback French Bulldog often produces a litter of puppies that are loyal yet more friendly with new people and strangers.

15. French Schnauzer (French Bulldog x Schnauzer)

The French Schnauzer is both charming in appearance and personality. Many French Schnauzers inherit the French Bulldog’s bat ears and Schnauzer’s scruffy muzzle. So, you usually end up with quite a dapper-looking dog. Most French Schnauzers are bred with Miniature Schnauzers, so they don’t usually grow beyond the size of a small-medium dog.

While generally friendly, French Schnauzers are usually strongly loyal to one or two of their favorite humans. They can be a bit stubborn but training them gets easier as they establish a strong bond with you.

16. French Chow (French Bulldog x Chow Chow)

Chow Chows are known for their regal and serious personalities. So, when you add a French Bulldog into the mix, you often get a more laid back French Chow with a good sense of humor. These dogs are often calm and don’t require a whole lot of exercise. They don’t mind skipping a walk every so often, so they’re often good fits for people with busier schedules. They’re also considerable choices for apartment living and will probably appreciate being a couch potato with you on the weekends.

17. French Corgi (French Bulldog x Corgi)

French Corgis can be a crossbreed of French Bulldogs and Cardigan Welsh Corgis or Pembroke Welsh Corgis. This mix of two iconic dog breeds creates an adorable litter of puppies that usually have large and long bat ears. They most often have short legs and a stout build, but don’t let their size fool you. They can be balls of energy and will love running around in a large backyard or walking around their neighborhood.

18. French Bulljack (French Bulldog x Jack Russell Terrier)

French Bulljacks are viable options for people looking for a playful and active dog. Despite their small size and stout build, French Bulldog Jack Russell Terrier mixes are surprisingly athletic and typically enjoy running around in the dog park or going for a walk.

While they can be energetic and playful, it’s important for owners to be mindful of how much energy these dogs expend. You can’t forget that French Bulldogs can be extra sensitive to heat and have more difficulty breathing in hot weather. So, preventing French Bulljacks from over-exercising is essential to their care needs.

19. Miniature French Pin (French Bulldog x Miniature Pinscher)

Miniature Pinschers carry themselves with such boldness and confidence that they’re famously known as being the “king of toys.” This cross of the French Bulldog and Miniature Pinscher is tiny, but they have a lot of energy and love to play. So, you can expect Miniature French Pins also to share the same enthusiasm for toys and many play sessions incorporated into their daily routines.

Life with a Miniature French Pin is anything but boring. Your days together are sure to be filled with laughter and fun adventures.

20. French Bullrador (French Bulldog x Labrador Retriever)

The Labrador Retriever reigned as America’s most popular dog for 31 consecutive years until the French Bulldog rose to the number one spot in 2022. We’re thrilled about French Bullradors because they’re truly the best of both worlds of two of the most popular dog breeds. They’re known to be playful and friendly and will love accompanying you everywhere you go. French Bullradors are also likely to develop a love for swimming and retrieving, making them some of the best companions for summer beach days.
