Where to get French Bullhuahua Puppies
Since this doggo is a hybrid, the American Kennel Club does not recognize it as its own dog breed. In other words, if you decide to go through a reputable breeder, you won’t be able to look at the AKC Marketplace. There are other ways to tell an ethical breeder from the rest, though, in your research. Buster…
For example, a good breeder will do the following:
- Socialize and train the puppies as early as possible, not allowing them to leave their mother until at least eight weeks of age
- Ensure the puppies are up to date on all of their vaccinations
- Want to meet with you in person and allow you to meet the parents and the litter
- Be able to answer any of your questions about the breed as a whole, the process, or their experience and reputation as a breeder
- Health screen and genetically test the dogs before breeding to ensure it’s safe (and then get the puppies tested)
In addition, they’ll have health documents for you to bring home upon adoption.
If you find a breeder that does not do the above, then you’ll want to avoid them. They might be a puppy mill or a backyard breeder. They are more interested in making a profit than finding good homes for the puppies. Also, they don’t breed the dogs under safe or healthy conditions.
Alternatively, you can call your local animal shelter or rescue organization to see if they have French Bullhuahua puppies, adults, or seniors available for adoption. These dogs are looking for a good forever home, so you gain a new furry friend while saving a dog’s life. George…
The average cost of this dog breed is anywhere between $150 and $700. However, they can sometimes go for as much as $1,000. The price will vary based on the breeder’s location, the breed’s popularity, the time of year, or the number of puppies in the litter.
French Bullhuahuas come from small and medium-sized breeds. So, you can expect this doggo to be small to medium in size. For instance, French Bullhuahuas can grow about six to 12 inches tall and weigh between ten and 30 pounds. Pen…
In addition, they have a short and smooth coat that can come in a couple of coat colors. For example, they can have a coat that’s the following:
While French Bullhuahuas are loyal and affectionate with their family members, they might do better will smaller families or singles. However, they can be stubborn to train and talkative, so that they won’t do well in an apartment and will need an experienced dog owner.
However, with proper and early training and socializing, they can get along well with other dogs and pets, strangers, and young children. But they would prefer to be the only one.
A fenced-in yard will do wonders for them so they can roam, run, and bark to their heart’s content. For instance, they have high energy levels and need plenty of playtime. However, you’ll only need to provide them with about 30 minutes of exercise every day due to their small size. A long walk will be ideal for them. Otherwise, they’ll be more than happy to be couch potatoes. Frodo…
French Bullhuahua Puppies – Veterinary Needs
For the first year, bring your doggo to the vet a couple of times so you can keep them up to date with their shots and boosters. Also, you can keep track of their growth and development. Then, for every year after that, you can bring them to the vet once a year for their annual checkup.
With proper care, the French Bullhuahua has an average lifespan of about 12 to 18 years.
However, they are prone to a few health issues since they can inherit health problems from both parent breeds. For example, this designer dog can get the following health conditions:
- Hip Dysplasia
- Patellar Luxation
- Collapsing Trachea
- Intervertebral Disc Disease (IVDD)
You can provide any dog food for your French Bullhuahua as long as your vet approves it and it’s also appropriate for their breed size, age, weight, and metabolism. Corby…
For instance, you can give them high-quality kibble or canned wet food from a commercial dog food brand or homemade dog food.
Also, French Bullhuahuas love to eat. It’s easy for them to overeat and become obese, so keep track of their daily calorie intake.
Grooming this doggo is fairly simple. They don’t require much, but you can still bring them to a professional grooming salon once in a while to give them a good bath. However, you won’t need to trim their coat at all. They do shed a little bit, so weekly brushing will be ideal for keeping the loose hairs under control.
Finally, be sure to keep up with trimming their nails, brushing their teeth, and cleaning their ears regularly.
