Frenchie Facts

What do you need to know about Frenchies?

·     For one, they are NOT Pugs

Generally speaking, Frenchies are:

·     Much smaller than English bulldogs. Frenchies typically run 18-28 pounds

·     Known for their “bat ears”

·     Laid back and lots of fun

·     Good with kids and pretty much all people

·     Content to have just 1 person or a whole bunch of people to love

·     Great snugglers

·     Couch potatoes

·     Good on a leash

·     Not terribly athletic but prone to doing what’s affectionately known as the “Frenchie run”, where they tear around the house for a short period of time 

·     Well-suited to apartment life or much larger spaces

·     INSIDE DOGS. They can’t regulate temperature well, so they must not be left outside

·     Not good swimmers. If you have a pool or plan to take your baby to the lake, buy a life jacket

·     Some are worse than others, but most Frenchies snore at least sometimes, and some even while awake

·     Fart monsters. Seriously

·     Precious and funny and almost impossible to have just one

Poodles and Doodles Facts

We also raise Bernedoodles, Aussiedoodles, and Goldendoodles

A few facts about Doodles:

  • Doodles are popular because you get good temperament with fewer shedding and allergies.
  • Each generation bred back to a poodle increases the “poodleness” of the coat, which means fewer allergy issues and shedding but maybe a little more grooming
  • F1 is a pure bred to a pure bred Poodle breeding (ex: Golden Retriever X Poodle)
  • F1B is a cross to a pure bred Poodle breeding (ex: Goldendoodle X Poodle)
  • Life expectancy is generally higher for a Doodle than for the pure bred dog on its own
  • A well-bred Doodle makes a wonderful pet! They are generally smart and very good-natured. Many are bred for use as service or therapy dogs.
Common but incorrect assumptions about Doodles:
  • Doodles are 100% hypoallergenic. While Doodles are less likely than most breeds to trigger allergies, any dog with fur can trigger allergies in some people. Fur picks up allergens from the environment, and that is unavoidable. Additionally, some people are allergic to the saliva. Less shedding can’t unfortunately solve that problem :(. 
  • All Doodles are big (or little). In truth, Doodles can vary greatly in size, generally as a result of the size of the Poodle stud. As long as the breeding is done carefully and with an understanding of the lines, they should be generally equivalent in terms of health.
  • All dogs should be bred to Poodles to make Doodles. In fact, not all dogs make a good cross, either in terms of temperament or physical characteristics. Those decisions should be made carefully and with lots of research.
