We are looking for a French Bulldog & Boston Terrier mix breed puppy. Does anyone have one or know of a breeder?

I don't. And any "breeder" you find is just breeding mutts. Just so you know.

I have three Bostons and one Frenchie...both are intelligent, fun breeds...all on their own.

Agreed. If you are going to buy a puppy from a breeder, get one or the other, from a responsible breeder who breeds healthy dogs in good living conditions. There is no reason on earth to purposely breed Boston/Frenchie mixes. Both breeds are brachycephalic, meaning they have short pushed in muzzles, and so are pretty heat intolerant for Florida as well.

Default Agreed...

I agree with the above posts.

I have a friend that has a Frenchie/Boston mix and I know why you would want one. Gomez, is so freakin' cute and he LOVED playing with my Diesel (90lbs). It was fun watching them.

However, they have their issues --> especially heat.

I would look at rescues for Boston's and Frenchies. Tell them you are looking for the mix, if they come across one, they can call you. Also, check your local pound or shelter, you can probably get on a list there, too.

god forbid someoen have a pet without papers. its actually kind of an intersting mix both are cool breeds maybe get a dog with teh looks of a frenchie who is a bit more active and less health problems than a frenchie, also for someone who doesn't want a super active dog maybe a bit lazier than a boston. im acutally surprised someone hasn't started breeding them come up with a cool name and charging 5k per dog.

the the op unless this is some new "exotic" breed i havn't heard of probably wont find a true breeder breeding them. if someone does have them its just their dogs happenned to have puppies. probably something that will be hard to seek out.

Your first sentence...I'm not quite sure what you meant. Yes, I have four purebred dogs but none have papers and that's alright with me. Papers don't mean a thing anyway unless you're a breeder or taking the dog into the show ring.

And yes, there are unethical breeders breeding these two and charging big bucks for them. A google search will bring them up...type in frenchton.
