In recent years, Bulldogs have been crossed with many other dog breeds to create some weird and wonderful hybrid dogs. But when it comes to Siberian Huskies, is this a crossbreed too far? Let’s take at these interesting dogs, including the French Bulldog and Husky Mix.
It can be hard to imagine what a Bulldog Husky mix might turn out like, especially when we look at the different types of Bulldogs that could be crossed with these impressive Siberian breeds. Let’s find out what these Bulldog crossbreeds might turn out like!
What Is A Bulldog And Husky Mix?
Dog breeders have been crossing two pedigree breeds to create a designer dog for many years. However, in recent years these crosses have got quite weird and wonderful! Most people would never imagine crossing a French Bulldog and Siberian Husky, so what would this hybrid look like?
The Bulldog and Husky mix generally referred to as a Buskdoggy, is still quite a rare crossbreed. To understand what they might look like, we need to know more about these different dog breeds.
What Is A Siberian Husky?
The Husky is a medium-sized breed of dog, renowned for pulling sleds across the frozen expanses of Siberia. They have a thick, dense coat, giving them a fluffy, teddy bear appearance.
However, this breed of dog is far from a cute teddy bear! They are strong and powerful dogs, with incredible stamina and endurance. Siberian Huskies are very friendly and loyal dogs and can make good family pets as long as you can cope with their high energy levels.
Because of this, Huskies are not suited to city and apartment living. They need space to run and play and will not thrive if kept confined for long periods. They also tend to chase smaller dogs and other pets such as cats.
Huskies are around 50 to 70 centimeters tall. They weigh an average of 16 to 27 kilograms and have a life expectancy of 12 to 15 years.
What Does A French Bulldog And Husky Mix Look Like?
Like all hybrids, the French Bulldog and Husky mix can take on the appearance of either breed or a combination of the two.
French Bulldogs are smaller than Huskies, standing 39 to 47 centimeters tall. This means that the offspring of these two breeds might be midway in height between the two parents.
The French Bulldog is commonly known as a lapdog and is kept as a pet in apartments and cities. The Husky is the exact opposite – a breed that has high energy levels and needs room to run and play.
So, it is a bit of a lottery when figuring out what you’ll get with a French Bulldog crossed with a Husky. You need to be prepared for a dog that may need plenty of physical exercise as well as mental stimulation!
When it comes to appearance, this hybrid may look more like one parent or another. Because these two breeds are so different, it can be hard to predict what your puppy will look like. One this is for sure though – it will have the pointed ears which both breeds have in common!
Both breeds are also very friendly and loyal, so you should expect your French Bulldog and Husky mix to make a great family dog.
What Does An American Bulldog And Husky Mix Look Like?
An American Bulldog and Husky mix will be larger in size than its Frenchie counterpart. The average height of an American Bulldog is 50 to 70 centimeters, around the same size as a Husky.
It is likely that an American Bulldog crossed with a Husky will take on some of the coat characteristics of the Siberian breed, with a thick double coat. This will make this hybrid dog even more prone to heatstroke than other Bulldogs.
Both breeds have a wide range of different coat colors, so it is impossible to predict what color your Bulldog Husky mix will be.
They also have very different face shapes – the Husky has a long nose, whereas the Bulldog has a short, flat nose and wide head. The offspring may take after one parent more than the other, or they may be an equal mix of both.
How Much Will A French Bulldog And Husky Mix Cost?
As with all hybrid dogs, there is a huge range in the prices that puppies sell for. It is vital to research both breeds carefully before buying a Bulldog Husky mix. Each breed is prone to different hereditary health problems, and a reputable breeder should screen the parents for these before deciding to breed.
The costs of these tests are normally reflected in the price of your puppy. This means that a cheaper puppy is not always the bargain it seems. It may have several hereditary health conditions and you could end up paying veterinary bills throughout the dog’s lifetime.
The average price of a pedigree French Bulldog puppy is between $2,000 to $7,000. Husky puppies can be much cheaper, costing around $1,000. As an estimate, a good quality French Bulldog and Husky puppy could cost around $3,500.
There are other costs to consider when buying a puppy of any breed. A good pet insurance policy is a worthwhile investment, to give you peace of mind when it comes to large veterinary bills. Your puppy will also need a dewormer, vaccinations, and a microchip. These challenging hybrid puppies will also benefit from puppy training classes.
So, as we have learned, a Bulldog and Husky mix can give you a fun-loving crossbreed that makes an energetic and playful family pet. However, as with all Bulldog mixes, these intelligent dogs need careful training. The Husky influence may give you a lively, bouncy dog with high energy needs.
