Thinking of having a Frenchie
Anyone here who has a french bulldog? Are they compatible with yorkies?

Apparently they are compatible, I just found an ad on CLs for Frenchie/Yorkie crosses - of course, I don't think that's the sort of compatable you were asking about.
Honestly, I don't see why they wouldn't be, just find a pup with a personality that works with the Yorkie you already have. And then, take lots and lots of pictures of them and post them so I can giggle along with you as they play.

I don't know if French Bulldogs are like English in personality but, I'm watching my daughters English right now and he's a sweetheart. He's literally 6 times bigger then Sunni but very gentle with her. I do keep an eye on them when the play seems to be getting too frisky, lol. But from what I see a bulldogs laid back sweet personality is a great compliment to a sweet, feisty little Yorkie.

My friend has Yorkies, has had Yorkies for years, and then took in a little Frenchie, and that baby is nothing short of a babydoll!! She loves that little pup and he gets along so well with the Yorkies.

Well, it sure depends on the Frenchie you get. Some of them can be quite aggressive as they are bulldogs. I would be cautious.

Jackson is a bigger Yorkie (18lbs) and used to hanging out with all sorts of dogs-- but he's REALLY uncomfortable with Frenchies or any bulldogs. I think the snorting, etc is off-putting to him, he thinks they are being aggressive even when they're not. They also have a really different playstyle, very rough and tumble, slamming into things which Jackson does not appreciate. They're adorable (but also ridden with health problems -- the 2 I dogsit have both have 3 surgeries and they're 2 years old) but I know a lot of dogs don't 'understand' them or their play style sometimes.

I have two frenchies, and am waiting for my yorkie. I think introduced properly and they will be besties in no time.
