French Bulldog Pitbull Mix – A Mixed Breed With Two Very Different Pasts
The French bulldog is one of the most popular mixed breed dogs today. It was originally bred in France during the 19th century. There are two main types of these dogs: those that were purebred and those that were crossbreeds between different breeds. They have been used as guard dogs, hunting dog, police dog, therapy dog, service animal and many other things.
They are very popular among the middle class because they do not require much exercise and their docile nature makes them ideal companions. However, they are also known to be aggressive towards strangers or any other animals that might pose a threat to them. They are also prone to biting when startled or if someone tries to hurt them.
Despite all these negative traits, the French bulldog is still considered a “good” dog due to its love of humans and devotion for their masters. They are also quite loyal and will often stay with their owners even after they die.
The French bulldog is one of the few breeds that can live up to 20 years old. Their lifespan is shorter than some other breeds such as the Labrador Retriever, but it’s definitely not a bad thing since they tend to live longer than most other dogs.
There are various reasons why people choose to own a French bulldog. Some of them include:
The dogs are very playful and energetic. Owners can spend a lot of time playing catch with them. They love to be pampered and get along with children and other pets.
They are good watchdogs since they will bark loudly if a stranger gets too close to your property.
They are very easy to train. Owners can teach them not to beg at the dinner table or stop them from jumping on people within just a few days.
Due to their stubby legs and short snout, these dogs do not require much exercise. Owners can take them for a walk around the block or just play with them in the backyard and they’re good to go.
The dogs are very patient and will put up with children who like to pull their tail or ears. They do not have a mean bone in their body.
Despite their bulky appearance, these dogs are very good with kids. As long as the children know how to treat them nicely, there shouldn’t be any problems. A lot of parents like to buy Frenchies as guard dogs, but still let their children play with them to prevent the dog from becoming too aggressive.
These dogs can also live indoors since they do not have a heavy coat and do not need to expend a lot of energy running around.
As long as owners always provide them with plenty of attention and affection, they will never become “bored”. These dogs are very popular since they only have two major flaws. One is that they do not tolerate heat very well. Owners will have to make sure they do not stay outside in the hot sun for too long.
The other problem is that some French bulldogs can have a lot of health problems such as skin disorders, digestive problems, and respiratory issues.
