Available for adoption

Below are the dogs currently in our care. Please review the information provided on each dog and if you think he/she would be a good match for your family and lifestyle, an adoption application link button can be found below each dog. Indicate the dog you are applying for on your completed form. Applications will be reviewed and those most suitable will be contacted for an interview and meeting. Do not apply for a dog that is clearly not recommended for your situation (e.g. if noted as no small children and you have small children, even if you feel your children are good with dogs) We must be firm on our assessment requirements to maximize the chance of a successful and long term placement.

We do not do same day adoptions and we do not ship dogs. Reference and home checks are required prior to adoption finalization. Applicants selected as potential adoptive families (including any other family dogs) must initially visit the rescue dog to assess compatibility. Adoptive families are asked to provide regular updates following adoption. Additional protocol information can be found in the adoption contract & home checklist at the bottom of the rescue page.

Andy

MEET HANDSOME ANDY

“Hello everyone, my name is Andy! I was found as a stray and came into FBFC care. I am a French Bulldog mix who is approximately 7 years young. You can ask anyone who has met me, I am a loving goofy guy! I love everyone I meet and get along really well with my foster family humans and dogs. I enjoy my walks and playing in the backyard. I do not like it when the other dogs try to play rough so I would do better with another more submissive dog in the house. I have had some issues with marking in the house but have been working hard to learn not to do this. I do well in a crate at bed time and when no one is home so my new family should have a crate for me to hang out in! My foster family has learned that it seems to happen when I’m left alone so my foster mom said the ideal family for me would be home for most of the day. Finally, I was very skinny when I first came into care but my foster family put me on this raw diet that is amazing. It helped my fur grow in nice and shiny! I have been putting on weight and am no longer itching all the time. I really hope my new family will keep me on my raw diet. My foster mom is even going to send me with enough of everything I need for a month to help my forever family with the transition. Also for my belly because I love the stuff! Anyway, enough about me, what about you? Do I sound like your perfect match. Do you have a lap for me to snuggle on?”
