Although Frenchies are widely famous for their uniqueness, there are even more unique dogs that simply catch everyone’s eye. In order to prevent French bulldog breed from having different health issues, many dog breeders decided to cross Frenchies with other dog breeds. Since flat faces in Frenchies often cause certain issues with breathing, a better option is to cross them with dogs that have longer muzzles and are less prone to allergies.
It’s recommended to mate a Frenchie with a similar toy or terrier breed because of the size. Other characteristics of a certain dog breed are also important to observe. For example, so-called hybrid dog breeds are made to clean-up some specific dog breed from potential genetic issues. Since French bulldogs have a tendency to allergies and different hip issues, it’s good to choose a dog without these tendencies. If you were wondering what the most popular French bulldog mixes are, the following list will definitely thrill you.
1. French bulldog + Miniature Poodle
Have you ever seen a Frenchie with a fuzzy coat? Well, if you have then it was a hybrid dog called Froodle. The result of a breeder who crosses these 2 dogs is a friendly and fuzzy dog with minimal shedding issues. Good news is that Froodle’s having a longer muzzle which implies of owning a dog without breathing issues.
2. French bulldog + Boston Terrier
Although they look pretty similar at first sight, these two dog breeds have one main distinction. Boston terrier has longer legs and a more elegant looking body. So, the Frenchton will certainly be a great mix of intelligent, playful and friendly dog.
3. French bulldog + Beagle
Otherwise called Frengle, this hybrid dog presents a perfect fit for persons who like to own active and high energy dogs. Unlike purebred Frenchies, Frengles are high energy dogs that never sleep. Therefore, it’s recommended to provide them with at least 45 min of training every day. Besides this fact, Beagles have longer muzzles that result in getting a dog free of breathing issues.
4. French bulldog + Pug
People often mix Pugs with French bulldogs, mostly because of their similar appearances. However, Pugs have flopped ears and always black mask on their heads.

5. French bulldog + Chihuahua
The French Bullhuahua is probably the craziest and cutest dog you’ll ever see. The Mexican national symbol, Chihuahua, is a tiny and playful dog whose roots go back to pre-Columbian times. When we talk about the size of Bullhuahua, this hybrid dog is smaller in size than a regular Frenchie. Unlike French bulldogs, Chihuahuas are alert dogs that are prone to show some aggressiveness in certain situations. On the other hand, both French bulldog and Chihuahua are dogs of huge personalities that like to be cuddled a lot. Thanks to Bullhuahuas’ longer tails, this crossbreed will probably not suffer from any spinal disorders.
