FBFC Rescue

As the popularity of French Bulldogs increases in Canada, so too does the number of French Bulldogs in need.

If you know of a dog in need or wish to volunteer, please see our rescue contact page here.

Above all, we need caring individuals and families to open their homes and hearts to give our ‘rescues’ the love and security that comes from having a family of their own.

Gemma

Gemma is a pretty, brindle, 4 year old girl that was owner surrendered to rescue. She was reported to be a dog that forms strong bonds with some people but is fearful of others. Gemma is in foster care with a trainer and has had a lot of exposure to other dogs, social situations and people of various ages. Her foster dad describes her as sweet, friendly and energetic. She has been good with all people and dogs she has met, though tends to ignore rather than socialize with other dogs. She can be protective of her crate.

Available for Adoption

Adoption Fee: $1000.00

Lili

Lili is a sweet, active, energetic, one year old

She came into our care following a severe elbow fracture which needed complex and expensive orthopaedic surgeries to repair. This was  followed by rehab and recovery time. She is now back to full mobility, has been spayed  and is ready to find her forever home.

Lili needs  a family that can manage her energy. She’s not a couch potato. She’s super affectionate, and  would enjoy a canine sibling, as she loves to play. She is compatible with both male and most female dogs as long as  they are not dominant.  She has not been exposed to cats.

Lili is not a barker but she needs things to do and can get into mischief when bored.

Lili’s ideal family would include  people that are home a lot, she enjoys kids as well. A male or submissive female doggy sibling would be nice.

Photo of Dewey

Under Assessment

Dewey

DEWEY came to us as a shelter transfer. Seeing his determination, sweetness and love of life we were contacted to see if we could help. He is absolutely the sweetest puppy ever! He is under 10 weeks old and has an amazing personality! Dewey is happy, friendly, cuddly, sociable and loves to play. His foster mom describes him as a little clown!

Unfortunately Dewey was born with a congenital defect affecting his spine as well as bowel and bladder control. He was examined and xrayed on intake and has had a neurology consult done .Based on examination, spina bifida is suspected. An MRI would be helpful to gain additional structural information, but since this defect is not surgically correctable, at the moment our goal is to establish a care routine and keep him happy and healthy. Incontinence is common in spina bifida dogs, so diapers are part of his life.

Even though his gait is unique, Dewey is not in any pain, he is quite mobile and runs around the house happily exploring and socializing with his foster family’s pets We will also be looking into alternative therapies for Dewey to potentially improve overall function. Despite his disability, Dewey absolutely loves life and we will do our very best to offer him a bright future!!

Donations to help with Deweys care would be greatly appreciated.

Under Assessment

Nova

Nova is an adorable little 3 yr old fawn Gremlin with a quirky personality. She was returned to our care due to escalating aggressive behaviour towards a young male dog in her adoptive home with incidents of redirection on intervention, She was also showing signs of general anxiety, tension and management challenges.

Nova loves to cuddle, loves toys, enjoys her naps, her meals and is doing fine with the dogs in her foster home. She can be possessive of toys. She sometimes gets overexcited which is currently managed with a bit of quiet time in her crate if needed. Nova is doing great in her foster home and she will be fully assessed to determine what she may need in terms of care and training both now and in the future.

Good general health. Allergies. Chondrodystrophic structural anomalies, spayed, vetting up to date. Noted reactivity, guarding, noise sensitivity and behaviour management challenges.

Permanent Foster

Winnie

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.
