Frenchie Labrador History

The French Bulldog and the Labrador Retriever are two of the most popular breeds in the world. Both the French Bulldog and the Labrador Retriever are medium-sized, family-friendly, intelligent, and easily trained dogs. There are hundreds of different hybrid and designer dog crosses that involve the breeding of French Bulldogs and Labrador Retrievers. These two dogs are so popular that breeders are now mixing them in an attempt to create “designer” hybrids. The popularity of these “designer” hybrid and cross-breed dogs has given rise to a multi-billion dollar industry. The demand for these unique and friendly dogs is so high that it is now not uncommon for a litter of 10-15 of these puppies to sell for $10,000 or more.

Frenchie Labrador Temperament and Behaviour

The French Bulldog and Lab Mix is a friendly, playful, and gentle dog that is good-natured and sociable. They are gentle and sensitive, and tend to bond with one person rather than the entire family.

Frenchie Labrador Activity Requirements

The Frenchie Lab is a hybrid dog that was developed by crossing a Labrador Retriever with a purebred French Bulldog. This relatively new “designer” dog is growing in popularity. Despite their small size, this hybrid is still an active, playful pup. They require about an hour of daily exercise and will do fine in either a home with a yard or an apartment. While the Frenchie Lab may require less exercise than other dogs, they need plenty of opportunity for play and interaction. They are not well suited to long periods of isolation, and are happiest when they are with their people.
