February Dog Breed of the Month

Frenchton: A Perfect Blend of French Bulldog and Boston Terrier

The Frenchton, a delightful crossbreed between the French Bulldog and Boston Terrier, has rapidly gained popularity for its charming personality and unique combination of traits inherited from its parent breeds. In this article, we will delve into various aspects of the Frenchton, exploring its appearance, temperament, living needs, care requirements, health considerations, historical background, and some fun facts.

Appearance

The Frenchton exhibits a distinctive appearance that reflects the characteristics of both the French Bulldog and Boston Terrier. Typically, they have a sturdy and compact build with a square-shaped head, large expressive eyes, and bat-like ears inherited from the French Bulldog. Their short coat can come in various color combinations, often with a smooth and glossy texture.

Temperament

Known for their friendly and affectionate nature, Frenchtons make excellent companions for families and individuals alike. They are social, outgoing, and enjoy being around people. Their playful demeanor and adaptability make them well-suited for various living situations, including apartments and houses with yards.

Living Needs

Frenchtons are adaptable to different living environments, but they thrive in homes where they receive ample attention and love. Regular exercise is crucial to keep them healthy and prevent boredom. Despite their small size, they have moderate energy levels and enjoy short walks and playtime. It's important to note that they may not tolerate extreme weather conditions well, so providing a comfortable living space is essential.

Care

Maintaining the well-being of a Frenchton involves regular grooming, including brushing their short coat to minimize shedding. Due to their brachycephalic nature inherited from the French Bulldog parent, they may be prone to respiratory issues, so it's important to monitor their activity in warm weather. Regular veterinary check-ups are recommended to ensure their overall health.

Health

As with any dog breed, it's crucial to be aware of potential health concerns associated with the Frenchton. Common issues include respiratory problems, allergies, and joint-related conditions. Regular exercise, a balanced diet, and routine veterinary care contribute to their overall health and well-being.

History

The Frenchton's history is intertwined with the development of designer dog breeds. The intentional crossing of French Bulldogs and Boston Terriers aimed to create a dog with the best qualities of both breeds. While the breed is not officially recognized by major kennel clubs, its popularity continues to grow, and breeders work towards establishing consistent traits.

Fun Facts

  • Frenchtons are often referred to as "designer dogs" due to their intentional crossbreeding.

  • They excel in various canine activities, including obedience training and agility.

  • Frenchtons are known for their expressive faces and comical antics, bringing joy to those around them.

  • Despite their small size, they have a courageous and protective nature, making them excellent watchdogs.

In conclusion, the Frenchton's unique blend of French Bulldog and Boston Terrier traits makes it a lovable and charismatic companion. Whether you're drawn to their charming appearance, friendly temperament, or playful demeanor, the Frenchton has captured the hearts of dog enthusiasts worldwide. As with any pet, responsible ownership involves understanding their specific needs and providing a loving environment for them to thrive.

Rocky

Rocky is a 10 month old happy, happy boxer/pit mix who LOVES to play.  He has tons of energy and needs someone willing and able to exercise and walk him. He will definitely benefit from some training. 

Rocky would prefer to be the only dog in the home for now and absolutely no kitties. He is an extremely charming boy whose personality will win you right over. He is as housebroken as possible here at the shelter. We would suggest any children be over 12.

Margo

Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler
Small Baby Female (not spayed)

Pet ID # 2024-4

How cute is Margo?! This little lady was brought to us after being found locally in a crate on a farm. Can you believe it?! When Miss Margo came in, it was so hard not to instantly fall in love with her. She would literally melt into your arms.

Margo is currently in a foster home. Appointments will be scheduled with approved applications. She is a smart puppy who's picked up on potty training really quick! (The bitter cold is the only exception to that!)

Margo is good with other dogs, and kids. She hasn't yet been around cats. But we think she's still young enough to learn.

She's looking for a home with breed experience of herding breeds like the Cattle Dog.

She is 4 months old (Approximately Born in September 2023)

Chief

American Pit Bull/Mix, Terrier

Animal ID: 48867139

Age: 6 Years 3 Months 12 Days

Gender: Male

Size: Large

Color: Grey/White

 

Intake Date 10/13/21

This is Chief, he has the saddest eyes that will melt your heart. Chief is 4 years old and was adopted by a local person from a high kill shelter in NYC. Unfortunately, their landlord would not allow them to keep Chief, and that's how he ended up with us.

Chief is a really big boy, but he is very mellow and gentle with people. He has been very quiet and well behaved here. He also walks well on a leash. However, we do think he would do best as an only pet.

Chief is definitely safe with us, as we are a no kill shelter, but he deserves a loving home to call his own. He has been bounced around and he has gone through a lot. His eyes definitely tell a story. Please share to help us find Chief the life he deserves.

Nico

Rottweiler/Mix

Animal ID: 52906594

Age: 3 Years 6 Months 12 Days

Gender: Male

Size: Large

Color: Black/Brown

 

Intake Date 06/16/23

Introducing Nico, the charming Rottweiler in search of an experienced owner!

This handsome 3-year-old boy was found as a stray and is now ready to find his forever home. Nico is highly motivated by treats and thrives on mental stimulation. He already knows impressive commands like "sit," "down," and "shake," and would be thrilled to learn even more!

While Nico is an amazing dog, it's important to note that he does have some resource-guarding tendencies. Therefore, we recommend a home with either adults only or children aged 14 and above. Additionally, Nico would likely thrive as the only pet in the household.

To ensure a smooth transition, we require a mandatory training session with certified behavior consultant/trainer, Christina Evans of Cohesive Canine. This session is included in Nico's adoption fee.

Overall, Nico is a truly wonderful dog who simply needs the perfect match. Help us find him a loving home by sharing his story far and wide!

fun fact

The Saluki is the Oldest Dog Breed

The Guinness World Record for the oldest dog breed is held by the Saluki. The breed dates back to 329BC and were kept as royal pets in Ancient Egypt. Reportedly, there are also carvings found in Southern Iraq of a dog that looks similar to a Saluki which dates back to 7000BC. 

Dogs have three eyelids

Many owners haven’t heard of this interesting dog fact, but did you know that your four-legged friend has three eyelids? According to iHeartDogs, the third lid is called the ‘haw’ or nictitating membrane, and it’s responsible for keeping the eye protected and lubricated. 

Dogs have dreams too 

Scientific evidence, based on brain wave patterns, suggests that dogs dream just like us. You can tell when a dog is dreaming by observing their body movements and facial expressions while they sleep. It has been mooted that they mostly dream about playing or spending time with their owners. In case you were curious, yes, they can, apparently, also have bad dreams and nightmares.

Meet The Corgi Crew

Endora

Greetings I AM ENDORA, the Managing Editor.

I’m a 10-year-old Corgi / Jack Russell mix. Being the smallest of our pack comes with its challenges. But I have learned to be BIGGER than my size. I rule our Pack with an Iron Paw and my bite is worse than my growl.

I enjoy chasing cats, squirrels, rabbits, moles, and chipmunks.

I have had run-ins with skunks and a baby woodchuck.

Oh, and Tom the turkey.

Davinci 11/8/08 - 6/13/23

It is a heavy heart and with great saddness to let our followers and family know that Davinci on June 13th 2023, crossed the rainbow bridge.

For 15 years Davinci, brought to the Johnson Family, much happiness, joy, laughter, and Love. He was a Big part of our pack, and his passing will leave a gap that won't easily be filled.

The Nubbiesntails family will never forget our oldest, and will honor him, by continuing to leave his profile and page up. Good bye Davinci, til we meet again.

I'm Montague, "Monty" for short.

I’m a Pembroke Welsh Corgi, and I wuff lounging around the house and yard, relaxing and taking pictures. Most of all, I WUFF DAYDREAMING!

At 5 years old, I may not have all the experience as the Old Man, or my grumbly sister Endora, but I have a relaxed insight they both miss.

I have been eating great food for my entire 3 years of life!
