Generally, American French Bulldogs have short, stocky bodies with short, sturdy limbs. This mixed breed of dogs, when compared to the parental breeds, is shorter than the American Bulldog breed but taller than the French Bulldog breed.
An adult male American French Bulldog can grow up to a height of 18 to 24 inches with a weight of 35 to 80 Ibs, while an adult female American French Bulldog can grow up to a height of 15 to 21 inches with a weight of 30 to 65 Ibs.
These canines have a sturdily built body with broad shoulders, giving this breed a more athletic appearance. In addition, American Frenchies have big, round brown eyes with black snouts, although there are exceptions.
The physical appearance of an American French Bulldog depends on the dominant genetic makeup of the parental breeds. Let’s look at the possible makeup of your American French Bulldog.
Ears And Tail
American French Bulldogs can either have bat-like ears like those of a French Bulldog, or flat-folded ears like those of an American Bulldog.
An American Frenchie can have a tail that is long and wavy, corkscrewed like an American Bulldog breed, or stumpy and screwed like a Frenchie, depending on the dominant gene of the parental breed.
Coat Type And Markings
American Frenchies generally have short smooth fine fur and come in standard colors like black, brown, white, cream, brindle, or fawn. They also come with two different fur colors like brindle and white, fawn and white, black and brown, or brown and fawn; basically, two colors commonly interchange with a light and dark color, although there are some exceptions.
American Frenchies are born with a black mask (black fur that surrounds the snout and can extend to parts of the face, including the eye area). For instance, you occasionally see fawn dogs with distinctive black masks, while some dogs have light-colored masks.
The pattern on an American French Bulldog does vary uniquely; the common patterns include spots, patches, markings, or gradients, and these distinctive bi-colored patterns can appear around the face, chest area, limbs, or body of bulldogs.
American French Bulldogs also come in rare colors like blue, isabella, tan, sable, or lilac. These rare colors can combine together or combine with common colors, for example, a black and tan American Frenchie. Sometimes these breeds come in three distinctive colors like black, brown, and white
