FRENCH BULLDOG RESCUE

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

Minnie is a sweet little 2 year old that came to us as an owner surrender due to incompatibility with the other family pets. She was described as showing increasingly aggressive behaviour to an older family dog and as being reactive in general to strange dogs on walks and in social settings. She is sweet and affectionate with people, loves kids, belly rubs and cuddling. She has no known health issues.
Minnie is currently in a pet free foster home while we assess her personality and training requirements.

Minnie is not yet available for adoption.

Marvin is not yet 2 years old. He is an absolutely delightful, friendly, affectionate, sociable little guy. He loves all people, enjoys cuddles and snuggles, children and other dogs.
He came into our care as an owner surrender when family health challenges and urgent pet veterinary needs became overwhelming.
Marvin lost his mobility in October and we we arranged for a neuro consult and MRI when he came into our care. MRI showed a ruptured disc in his neck that needed immediate surgery to optimize his chance of a full recovery. Marvin went directly to surgery after MRI and is currently recovering. He is doing well and his chances to make a full recovery are excellent.
Marvin’s expenses are very high. We could use your help to get this sweet boy back on his feet !!!!

Zookie came into our care as an owner surrender when personal family health challenges along with urgent pet veterinary care needs and expense became overwhelming. She is 3 years old and an absolutely delightful, friendly, affectionate, sociable, little dog. She loves all people and animals. Her overall health is good. She suddenly showed signs of disc extrusion in September. She had a CT scan done at that time. It showed evidence of possible disc extrusion as well as changes common to IVDD. Owners elected to treat her medically rather than surgically. She is currently fully mobile, but her gait is somewhat unsteady. She will need further assessment. Additional medical, surgical or alternative therapies or procedures may be beneficial..

Donations to help Zookie get the care and therapy she needs would be greatly appreciated.

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.
