As the popularity of French Bulldogs increases in Canada, so too do the number of French Bulldogs in need of rescue. Help French Bulldog Fanciers of Canada to help them! We are always in need of foster homes, transporters, people to do home checks, fund raise and donate to help cover the costs of veterinary and other care expenses. Above all, we need caring individuals and families to open their homes and hearts and give our ‘rescues’ the love and security that comes with family of their own

Dogs in care

Ranger is a 6 year old, friendly, happy, sociable guy. He gets around just fine but he has some gait abnormalities and leg weakness. He needs assistance rising from a lying position and with stairs.
Donations to help with Ranger’s care can be made via etransfer or by cc through donation links.

LOCATION: Southern Ontario

HEALTH/BEHAVIOUR: mobility dysfunction – needs assistance rising from a lying position. He cannot do stairs or step over obstacles but once up is able to get around well, go for walks, is playful and affectionate.

PEOPLE: good

COMPATIBILITY-DOGS: Good with dogs. Calm adult dogs best suited. 


REQUIREMENTS: Ranger is a dog that loves companionship and attention. He would do best in a family where someone is home much of the time to help him physically when needed and to provide the human attention he so enjoys. The companionship of another well balanced dog would be fine since he does like to play. He is not a fan of car rides so a stay at home family would be better than one that wants a dog as a travel buddy. He can be a bit protective of his food when other dogs are nearby, so feeding separately is advised and he will join in if another dog barks but he is not a nuisance barker.
Best home would be a quiet, one floor or minimal step adult home, with or without another dog. Adopters must be physically able to lift or carry him when needed. 

Ranger’s Adoption Fee is $500.

She recently suffered a ruptured disk and was examined by specialists at the Atlantic veterinary college. It was determined that her injury was not surgically correctable so she will be managed medically with physio/alternative therapies and assistive devices as required. She will remain in foster care during treatment and recovery and is not currently available for adoption.

Harley’s medical needs and expenses will be ongoing and donations to help us with her care would be most appreciated.

LOCATION: Nova Scotia

HEALTH/BEHAVIOUR: Recent disk rupture, mobility impaired. Treatment in progress. No known behavioural issues


COMPATIBILITY-DOGS: Calm dogs only due to health restrictions


REQUIREMENTS: Requirements will be determined following treatment and recovery.

Penny is a sweet 4 year old French Bulldog. She  was surrendered to rescue as the result of care challenges from mobility deficits and continence concerns 

Neurological investigation showed that she suffers from an inflammatory spinal condition (myelitis) of undetermined origin. 

We have found her to be smart, affectionate and social. She is great with people and other dogs and lives with a cat in her foster home. Due to her condition, Penny has rear end weakness and decreased control of bowel and bladder. We are hopeful that the  medical treatment she is receiving will lead to functional improvement.  

Penny will need further followup appointments to monitor her response and adjust her treatment when needed and she is not yet available for adoption 

Donations to help with Penny’s care can be made by etransfer or donate link(see below)

LOCATION: Southwestern ON (Toronto area)

HEALTH/BEHAVIOUR: spinal myelitis(under treatment) with resultant mobility and elimination deficits. Spayed, routine vetting up to date. No behaviour concerns


COMPATIBILITY-DOGS: good. Due to her physical limitations, interaction only with calm dogs preferred

COMPATIBILITY:CATS: shows curiosity. Lives with a a cat

REQUIREMENTS: Penny will need a quiet home with owners that are able to manage her care and ensure that the lifestyle structure she requires is followed. She would do well with a resident dog or cat as long as he/she is calm and well mannered. 

Overall she is adaptable, sociable and affectionate. The choice of a forever family will be based on best match

Winnie has been with us for a long time. She has a very challenging personality that requires routine, knowledge and management. Although she has had a number of applications, none have been the fit she needs.
With Winnie’s best interests at heart, she is now designated as permanent foster and applications will no longer be accepted. She will permanently remain in the care of her amazing foster family where she is happy and all her needs are being met.
Congratulations Winnie, you are home.

    For your information

    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 button can be found below each dog. Applications will be reviewed and those most suitable will be contacted. 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 above.
