French Bulldogs, often called “Frenchies”, look like mini versions of traditional bulldogs, except they have distinct bat-like ears. They’re one of today’s most popular dog breeds, beloved as clownish companions.
Like other popular breeds, Frenchies have been bred with other pups over the years, and the result is some even cuter pooches!
Check out a list of adorable French bulldog mixes below, and let us know what you think in the comments!
1. French Bulldog x Pug (Frug)
The Frug is one of the most common French bulldog mixes you’ll see, and he always seems to have a goofy expression on his face, which is just one of the many perks of these silly pups! The mixed breed may have the clownish nature of both breeds or lean into the famed dramatics of pugs, especially regarding nail trims.
He’s a compact yet stocky sniffer, inheriting the boulder-like build of his parent breeds along with their brachycephalic (flat-faced) look, so limit his time outside in warm weather. His sturdy build and gentle demeanor make him the perfect choice for families.
2. French Bulldog x Pit Bull (Frenchie Pit)
The Frenchie Pit is one powerful pup! This pooch is all muscle, though his strongest muscle is his heart! He’s a big sucker for pets and kisses. Just make sure you start training him manners like loose leash walking earlier on before he gets too strong.
Health conditions like allergies and sensitive skin may be areas of concern for him, along with dog selectiveness (they sometimes have trouble making friends). Start puppy socialization once his shots are up-to-date to ensure he knows other dogs are furry friends and not foes.
3. French Bulldog x Boston Terrier (Frenchton)
The Frenchton is sassy, sweet, and snuggly, which is just about everything you could ask for in a dog. Boston terrier mixes are already silly, goofy guys, so combining them with a Frenchie will likely result in one wacky, endlessly-amusing canine pal! Like the Frug, the Frenchton is one of the most common French bulldog mixes you’ll meet.
While this class clown is a natural-born entertainer, as a brachycephalic breed, his flat face warrants caution in hot weather, as he can overheat easily. His large, protruding eyes can also have issues or accidentally get poked, so avoid romps through underbrush and keep up on regular vet visits.
4. French Bulldog x Chihuahua (French Bullhuahua)
The Frenchie-Chihuahua mix is a sweet pup with a mind of his own. This little pup often sports large ears that complement his tiny body quite comically, particularly when he also has pouty facial features. He may have the clownish nature of a Frenchie or take after the legendary lapdog status of a Chihuahua, with some pups winding up being the best of both worlds as snuggly, fun companions.
This mix usually has a short, spiky coat that needs minimal brushing aside from removing loose hair, but if he’s mixed with a long-haired Chihuahua, he may require regular combing to prevent matting. He’s also going to be a shedder, so keep your lint roller handy!
5. Frenchie x Beagle (Frengle)
The Frengle is a ridiculously cute pup, and he’s generally quite playful and outgoing. His sturdy build and friendly nature make him a great dog for families with children, though he may inherit the beagle’s habit of following his nose instead of commands. So, keep him leashed in unfenced areas, no matter how great you think his recall is.
The Frengle has a short coat that’s easy to maintain, making him a relatively low-maintenance choice among French bulldog mixes. Other than occasional brushing to remove shedding hair, bathe him as needed, clip his nails, and clean his ears as needed.
6. French Bulldog x Poodle (Froodle/Frenchiepoo)
Looking for the perfect mix of charming and playful? The Frenchiepoo might be the dog for you.
Even the name screams, “let’s have fun!” Best of all, since the poodle is among the smartest dog breeds, your new little friend might be one clever cookie. This makes training easier but does require you to switch things up in your training routine occasionally to prevent boredom.
Grooming this cutie may be tedious, especially if he inherits the poodle’s famously curly coat. Luckily, you can have him clipped professionally every six to eight weeks to make daily life easier.
7. Frenchie x Australian Shepherd (French Bull-Aussie)
The French Bull-Aussie isn’t as common as other Frenchie mixes, but that doesn’t mean he’s not as adorable or worthy of ear scratches, as this wacky mix of a high-octane herder and a famous clown sure makes one cute critter. The pairing often results in a medium-sized pup with a bug-eyed appearance and a soft coat that may or may not be long and require more frequent brushing to remove tangles.
This mighty mutt will likely need more exercise than other French bulldog mixes, with special care needed in warmer weather if he inherits the Frenchie’s short face.
8. French Bulldog x Great Dane (French Bull Dane)
The French Bull Dane is essentially Scrappy Doo in real-life dog form, often getting the Dane’s big head on a decidedly short-legged frame. The results can be quite comical. He’s still relatively large and strong, with a bouncy nature and eagerness to play.
This bulldog mix’s size can quickly become overwhelming, so implement a firm training schedule using positive methods early on to teach him leash manners and other core obedience. Like any doggo, he should be monitored for hereditary diseases from both parent breeds, including hip dysplasia.
9. French Bulldog x Pomeranian (Frenchie Pom)
Also known as the Frenchie Pom, this pup often has a bright spirit and thirst for fun. He can come in lots of colors and patterns, with a medium to long-length coat that sheds moderately and needs regular brushing to prevent tangles. He’s a playful pooch with a heart of gold, needing ample attention from his favorite people to stay content.
This mixed-breed barker is a good choice for apartment dwellers, as he’s compact and relatively quiet. His exercise needs are also easy to meet in an apartment setting, only requiring a daily walk and indoor play to burn off energy.
10. Frenchie x Chow Chow (French Chow Dog)
This cute canine has puffy fur that’s a bit like a shiba inu and with similar coloring. He loves exercise and a fun time, whether you’re patrolling the sidewalk for awesome smells or chasing balls in the backyard. Just be aware that chow chow mixes can be more aloof, so don’t expect him to greet people with gusto. He’s actually more likely to put his watchdog skills to work and issue a warning bark.
Independence is a hallmark of this mixed-breed dog. His stubborn streak can be a challenge for beginner dog owners, as he sometimes decides its his way or the highway without warning. Ongoing, positive training is a must for him.
11. Frenchie x German Shepherd (French Shepherd Dog)
This hybrid breed has the fiery attitude of a shepherd along with the goofy spirit of a Frenchie. He can be fiercely loyal and also incredibly playful, making him a beloved companion for those seeking a dog of all trades. Unfortunately, his deep loyalty can lead to separation anxiety when left alone. A good way to combat separation anxiety is to schedule regular visits with a dog walker or opt for doggy daycare.
German shepherds are working dog breeds and excellent watchdogs, which may mean your mixed breed mutt inherits this drive and need for physical and mental exercise.
12. French Bulldog x Labrador
By pairing two of America’s favorite breeds, this pup is a perfect combination of playful and sweet. This mixed-breed dog is an ultimate family dog and adventure buddy, with boundless energy and a happy disposition that suits active households with children big and small. His exercise needs and exuberance for life can be a lot to handle at times, so couch potatoes need not apply.
Labs are among the easiest dog breeds to train, making him an excellent option for newbie dog owners. Just remember to stick to positive methods to avoid damaging his gentle spirit.
13. French Bulldog x Corgi
The Frenchie-Corgi mix has a look that’s packed with personality, from his long, low body to his expressive face. He’s a friendly guy that can be a natural social butterfly with pets and people, suiting a family with kids just fine. That said, corgis are herders, so he may need to be taught that children aren’t sheep if he inherits the instinct.
The unique build of this mix means special care is needed to avoid back injuries. Don’t let him amble up or down flights of stairs, and prevent him from jumping off high surfaces like couches.
14. French Bulldog x Shar Pei (Frenchie-Pei)
Wrinkles galore make this mixed mutt one adorable doggo, especially if he comes with the classic Frenchie ears. These folds are full of cute factor, but they also require regular cleaning and careful drying to prevent skin irritation. He may need extra eye care as well, depending on his appearance, as Shar Peis are prone to eye issues.
The Frenchie-Pei can be a more independent dog breed mix, so he may take a bit to warm up to new faces. He’s prefers to hang out with just his favorite person or two over large groups of people.
15. Frenchie x Bulldog
This double bulldog doggo is a meatball of a mutt with a stocky build and wrecking-ball gait you can’t help but chuckle at. He has a friendly, playful personality that pairs well with family life, plus he’s a courageous canine who will loyally guard your windows against squirrel visitors, making him an all-around awesome dog.
This is one of the more low-energy dog breeds on our list, with a daily leisurely stroll suiting his needs. That said, he won’t shy away from overeating, so limit treats and measure his food properly to prevent him from packing on too many pupper pounds. Health issues are another major concern with this mix.
16. French Bulldog x Jack Russell (French Bull Jack)
The French Bull Jack is one character-packed canine. He’s active, adventurous, and brave as can be, making him a good choice if you’re after a big dog in a small, sturdy package. He’s also a good breed for city living.
The Jack Russell is a famous ratter dog with a tenacious temperament, which may pop out in this mix. Your French Bull Jack may need more exercise than other pups on this list, with special care needed in warm weather if he’s a brachycephalic barker. Daily walks with indoor play will suit him just fine.
17. Frenchie x Dachshund (French Bull Weiner)
Unfortunate name aside, the French Bull Weiner is one loveable loaf of a dog with a cuddle-bug personality that suits #lapdoglife. He’s long and low, with a unique shape you can’t help but adore. This build can put him at risk of back injuries, though, requiring special care around stairs and furniture to ensure he doesn’t harm himself accidentally.
This canine combo can be snippier than other French bulldog mixes, so he may not be the best choice for families with small kiddos. Begin his training and socialization early to prevent him from becoming a handful.
18. French Bulldog x Border Terrier
With a scraggly coat and a curious expression, it’s hard not to love this mix. He’s sweet with his people and always eager for his next adventure, making him an ideal choice for active owners looking for a canine of compact size with a big dog spirit. Just be sure to comb debris from his coat after outings.
The terrier side of this Frenchie mix can make him scrappy, so start training and socialization early to help him be the best version of himself. Keep things positive, and mix up your training routine, as this smart sniffer can bore easily with repetition.
19. French Bulldog x Boxer
With a spring in his step and an adorable pout, this Frenchie mix is jam-packed with personality. He’s one of the most affectionate breeds among French bulldog mixes and is playful as can be, making him an excellent choice for a family dog.
Start training this guy early to ensure his manners are in check, as he’s known for being a bit too bouncy indoors, potentially knocking over furniture or small kiddos. Luckily, he’s eager to please and a big fan of food, so high-value treats and positive reinforcement training will go a long way with him.
20. Frenchie x Cavalier King Charles (French Royal/Frenchie Cav)
The French Royal is among the most loving French bulldog mixes, inheriting a warm heart from both of his parent breeds. He’s eager to please and playful, which works well in families with kids and mature households alike. He may have health issues, however, so keep up on regular vet visits.
If long like a cavalier’s, this mix’s fluffy coat needs regular combing to prevent matting, particularly around his ears, legs, and tummy. A sanitary trim is also recommended to avoid any backdoor messes from potty breaks.
21. French Bulldog x Shih Tzu (French Bull Tzu)
Fluff meets fun with this combination of breeds. The Frenchie’s playful nature pairs well with the lapdog energy of the shih tzu, crafting a wonderful companion who’s happy to chase a ball or curl up beside you on the couch. He’s small and stocky, with a sturdy shape that suits families with older kiddos.
The French Bull Tzu’s coat needs regular upkeep, as it’s often long and silky like the shih tzu. Keeping it clipped short with timely grooming appointments helps, but you’ll still to brush him a few times a week to prevent mats.
22. Frenchie x Staffordshire Bull Terrier (French Staff)
The French Staff is one powerful pup with a stocky, muscular build meant for hard work. Daily walks are always a must for this pup, along with early and ongoing training and socialization to prevent dog aggression. That said, he’s not always a super active breed, with many French Staffs being top-notch couch potatoes.
Often one to flash trademark Staffy wide smiles that melt your heart, this mix is brachycephalic, requiring special care during warm weather. He needs air-conditioned digs and brief potty breaks outside during the summer to prevent overheating. Steer clear of pools, too, as many French Staffs cannot swim.
23. French Bulldog x Bichon
What do you get when you mix the expressive Frenchie with a teddy bear dog breed? One cute sniffer! This mix is often a great lapdog with a sweet spirit, but he still needs proper training and socialization to avoid small dog syndrome.
Grooming this mix can be a challenge, as the Bichon’s tight curls will mat if they’re not properly maintained. Fortunately, keeping him clipped short with professional grooming appointments every six to eight weeks makes your day-to-day routine easier.

Number 8 is not a cross breed it is a french bulldog that has 2 copies of L1 or L4 ressesive long hair gene, they’ve been around since the start of the breed but used to get culled because they didn’t fit the breed standards that’s why little is known about them until now because modern genetic tests can now pin point the gene, look up angora french bulldog and you will see one from 1933

Hey there, Frenchie lover.
With mixed breed photos, all we have to go on is the owner’s or photographer’s description — it’s impossible to determine what breeds are in a dog’s ancestry visually.
But we appreciate your comment, and I’ll do some digging to see if I can figure out what’s happening with that little cutie.

We have a Frenchie Staff (Fraffy or Stenchie). She’s the most affectionate dog we’ve ever had. She’s 100% a people dog. Sadly not always a dogs dog though. She’s boisterous and stubborn, but got a great character and a lot of fun. A real little comedian full of love!
November 21, 2022
She sounds great, Vicky! Thanks for sharing.

Our French Bulldog (who we greatly miss) and our Morkie (who is still with us) had a baby, far as I can tell it’s the only French BullMorkie on the planet. Never have seen any pics or videos of another one anywhere on the web or on YouTube.

A French BullMorkie certainly sounds unique to us!
Thanks for sharing.

I have a 6 yr old French/Corgi and looks nothing like the one pictured. Mine took the dominant side of the French. Has the extended snout and corgi build but everything else is Frenchy. The attitude and sass I couldnt say which side that develops from. Her Loyalty is surpasses any other dog I’ve ever had in my family. Smart, very playful and funny. I also have an English bulldog and he’s just as lazy as can be. Not in to playing at all but loves the water.

They sound great, JBo! Thanks for sharing. 🙂

Well I never thought it could happen , but my daughter’s Bernese Mountain Dog 130lbs got my French Bulldog 22lbs . We thought our male French Bulldog had gotten he without our knowledge , but the puppies came out with tails and longer snouts. It was an accident and we were just trying to wait until Dodge was a year old , needless to say he is getting fixed this week. It will be interesting to see how these puppies turn out.
