French Bulldog vs. Frenchton: What are the Differences?

The French bulldog has been crossed to develop several crosses, with the Frenchton being one of them. It is created by crossing the Frenchie with its close cousin, the Boston terrier. The Frenchton retains the brachycephalic or flat-faced features of both its parents and is a mirror image of both. Still, when it comes to the differences between a Frenchton with its parent Frenchie, there are several, both in appearance and temperament.
