- Okay, here's
something we've never had on our site before. One of our
breeding partners called me a couple months back and told me that she
was playing "mad scientist" again. She said she had
always wondered what a French Bulldog and a Pug cross might look
like. Since she had both breeds, she decided to indulge
her curiosity. I'll admit to being a little pessimistic at
the time as to what the puppies might look like. But when
the puppies were born, and I saw them the first time, I was very
pleasantly surprised at how adorable they were.
I know that a lot of you will be curious to know several
things. Like: How big will they get? Will their ears stand
up? What will their coats be like? What's their
All great questions. Questions that I'll answer with an
honest, "I don't know". We're in some uncharted
territory with this litter. We've never had this cross before so
I can't say with complete certainty how they'll turn out.
I'll be happy to give you my best guesses, though.
I look for them to be around 20-25 lbs as adults. At this age
(four weeks) they're about the size of most Frenchies and Frenchtons
that we raise. Also, that's about the size of most French
Bulldogs and most Pugs mature at, so I think that it's likely for
their offspring to fall in that range.
Regarding their ears, my personal opinion is that they are going to
stand. I base that on a couple of things. For starters, a
few of the puppies have ears that are already to get a little spring
to them. And the other thing that I base that on is that it just
seems like the erect ears seem to be kind of, shall we say,
genetically dominant. In the past when we've crossed Frenchies
with other breeds like English Bulldogs, that had laying ears, the
ears did stand. I don't think they'll have the really big
bat ears like our French Bulldogs. I think it will be smaller,
erect ears. Just my best guess. I could be wrong.
Their coat type seems to take more to the Pug side of things.
They seem to have a little longer, more "brush type" coat
like you generally see on Pugs. Not as short and sleek as most
French Bulldog coats.
Regarding their disposition, I just can't imagine how they could
miss on having a very sweet, easy-going way about them. That
could come from both sides. You rarely meet a disagreeable Pug
They are about four weeks old right now and they'll be old enough
to go be with their new families the week before
