Boscoe the Bullhuahua: A Super-Rare, Once-In-A-Lifetime Mix Breed

Most mixed breeds are relatively predictable combinations—Pug x Beagle, Pit x Lab, Husky x Shepherd, just to name a few. You’ll find these “generic” mixed breeds in almost every shelter nationwide, but occasionally, animal shelters and rescues receive a dog with mind-blowing parentage. 

Boscoe is a three-year-old Bullhuahua, which means he has Bulldog and Chihuahua parentage, but those aren’t the only parent breeds in Boscoe’s lineage. Bulldog and Chihuahua is a rare combination, and Bullhuahuas are never deliberately bred by reputable breeders, so a rescue or shelter is the only place to find Bullhuahua dogs.

What is a Bullhuahua?

Bullhuahuas are not an official dog breed and are not recognized by the American Kennel Club or any other official breed registries. Bullhuahuas are any mix of any type of Bulldog and Chihuahua, though most Bullhuahuas also have additional breed parentage.

You might hear people refer to their Bullhuahua dogs as French Bullhuahuas, American Bullhuahuas, or English Bullhuahuas. These names distinguish what variety of Bulldog an individual Bullhuahua is a mix of. For example, a French Bullhuahua puppy would be a mix of French Bulldog and Chihuahua. 

Some people may also include American Bully and Chihuahua mixes under the Bullhuahua umbrella. 

Boscoe is a French-American-English Bullhuahua—quite a mouthful of a name. S.C.A.R.S got Boscoe’s DNA tested, so we know exactly what his breed parentage looks like!

Bullhuahua Basic Info

Bulldogs and Chihuahuas are very different sizes, and their offspring can be small to medium-sized dogs. Size is one of the reasons you won’t find Bullhuahua puppies for sale from breeders everywhere—the logistics of breeding this mix are complex! This is also why most Bullhuahuas have other breeds in their ancestry. Small-sized Chihuahuas would be nearly impossible to breed to purebred Bulldogs, even smaller French Bulldogs who are small dogs compared to American and English Bulldogs.
