The family took Luna to the vet, where they discovered she was a “Frorkie,” which is a mix between a French Bulldog and a Yorkshire Terrier, as reported. LadBible.
Bethany, of Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, says she thinks the seller made an “honest mistake” in listing Luna as a purebred French Bulldog and “would not doubt the seller is a bad breeder” because the animals that she saw were extremely well hold on.
And despite the initial confusion, the family couldn’t be happier with Luna, who thrives in her home forever.
Bethany told LadBibile: “We looked for a Frenchie, but as soon as we laid eyes on her we immediately fell in love.
“No matter the breed or the price, we welcomed her into our family home with open arms.
“She made our whole family and we wouldn’t change her for the world, she has the most amazing personality and is a fun person. We love her until the end.”
