Is your family short of one furry little member? Look no further. The French Boodle is here in all of its adorable glory to fill in the position! This pup is a cross between a French Bulldog and a Poodle, and they mix the best of both worlds. Friendly and affectionate like the French Bulldog and intelligent like the Poodle, this pup will make a wonderful addition to any loving home!
When it comes to intentional breeding, the French Boodle probably came onto the scene sometime in the last thirty or forty years. It is difficult to say exactly when this pup arrived on the scene since mixed breeds usually don’t have the same level of documentation as to their purebred parents.
The French Boodle is an incredibly friendly and social dog. They don’t make good watchdogs because where you see an intruder, they see a potential new best friend! Their social and friendly nature means they get along well with just about anyone, regardless of age or species. These pups are incredibly loving and do not do well when left alone for long periods of time. They may develop separation anxiety if they are left alone.
On average, the French Bulldoodle grows up to be around 12 to 15 inches tall and weighs anywhere between 16 to 25 pounds.
On average, the French Bulldoodle is a healthy dog thanks to some level of hybrid vigor that this breed possesses thanks to the larger gene pool as compared to the purebred parents. When getting your puppy from a breeder, make sure to check both parents’ health clearances. Your pooch may be predisposed to digestive and joint issues.
This pup doesn’t need a lot of exercises and will be happy with a few short walks or a low-intensity game of fetch. They are smart and need to stay mentally stimulated, so provide them with a lot of toys and trinkets. These pups can be stubborn and aren’t exactly the easiest to train.
Speak to your veterinarian to come up with a feeding plan that meets your dog’s nutritional needs. Avoid free-feeding to prevent issues such as bloat.
The French Bulldoodle’s coat is generally low-shedding.
These are rather low-maintenance pups and only require brushing a few times per week. Trim their coat if you feel like it’s getting too long and bathe them only when necessary.
You can usually get a French Bulldoodle for under $1000.
