The Froston, or Frenchton as many others call them are a designer crossbreed whose parents are the French Bulldog and the Boston Terrier. This breed was developed in the 90s with the intent of creating a slightly larger Frenchie but with less health hazards.
Frostons are charming and outgoing companions that travel well. They are highly adaptable and laid back, and do well with seniors, singles, and families, in all home settings. Despite being a laid back breed, they do not do well when left alone, therefore they are not suitable for those who work long hours.
The Froston loves to play, and they are very intelligent and highly trainable. They can also be a bit stubborn and demanding much like their French Bulldog side. Training can be a challenge at times, but positive reinforcement always does the trick. They always enjoy being the center of attention and get along well with children. Due to their size, they’re more suitable with older children that will know how to handle them correctly.
Frostons require a moderate amount of exercise daily, whether it’s a walk or a trip to the dog park. They generally tolerate other animals well, but tend to be a bit aggressive towards other dogs. Early socialization with the breed is a must to avoid any unwanted behavior.
