French Bull Tzu Characteristics
The French Bull-Tzu is a unique hybrid mix between the Instagram-favorite French Bulldog and a Shih-Tzu. They can come with either medium or long-length coats and display many of the facial features of the French Bulldog. French Bull-Tzus are a cheerful, loving breed that enjoys spending time with its humans and receiving all the love it can.
Standing about 8-13 inches at the shoulder and weighing anywhere between 15-25 pounds, the French Bull-Tzu is the perfect size for an apartment and a human lap. These dogs are very mild-mannered and can acclimate to homes with children or pets with ease. They can be stubborn but are typically not challenging to train as they really do love to learn and be involved in the action.
Unfortunately, many experts agree that small dogs are at a higher risk for dental issues than large dogs. This is likely due to the smaller skulls and jaws, which can lead to overcrowding of the teeth, which can lead to bacteria growth. Taking your French Bull-Tzu to get regular checkups at the vet will ensure any dental disease is caught early.
The French Bull-Tzu comes in a variety of colors and coats, from medium to long. Their texture is a bit like a terrier or softer. They're also relatively easy to groom, and only require a brushing every 2-4 days.
These dogs want nothing more than to please their owners, and will likely follow you from room to room. They’ll also love playing and romping with their families since they’re quite energetic. They’ll do very well with 45-60 minutes of vigorous exercise daily. French Bull-Tzus can adapt well to apartment living as long as their exercise needs are met. Be sure to provide your French Bull-Tzu with early socialization and obedience training to make sure they're well behaved when kept in small spaces.
Because of the Bulldog facial structure, these dogs do not cope well with extreme heat, so keep them inside on really hot days, and make sure they have plenty of water and shade to cool off!
