FRENCH BULLDOG RESCUE

Dogs in care

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-PEOPLE: good

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

Rupert is a cute little 3 year old French Bulldog that was surrendered to rescue following a back injury.
He is a sweet, affectionate, chatty little guy with a big personality and energetic nature.
Rupert has recently recovered from medical treatment for a disk rupture and will need future activity awareness and monitoring to lessen the chance of another injury. He was also found to have bilateral patellar luxations and will be assessed by an orthopaedic surgeon in the days ahead to determine the best treatment. 

Rupert needs followup appointments and potential surgeries and is not yet available  for adoption

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

LOCATION: Central ON (Collingwood area)

HEALTH/BEHAVIOUR: Recently recovered from spinal trauma. Patellar assessment pending. good general health , neutered , friendly, high energy, can be vocal

COMPATIBILITY-PEOPLE: good, takes time to warm up to new people.

COMPATIBILITY-DOGS: Calm, lower energy dogs 

COMPATIBILITY:CATS: no

REQUIREMENTS: Once Rupert has fully recovered from his recent back injury and any additional procedures he may need, we can better assess for ideal  family setting for him. Home with back care awareness will be needed.

Angus is a handsome 8 year old French Bulldog mix. 
He is friendly, affectionate, smart, active and good with dogs and cats. He enjoys company and should not be left alone for extended periods of time. He is doing well in foster care but will require further assessment to determine his future needs and best match family. 

LOCATION: Eastern ON (Ottawa area)

HEALTH/BEHAVIOUR: Angus has a sensitive stomach, suspected food allergies and came to us with noted bowel inflammation. He has seen the vet, had some advanced diagnostics done and is currently on medication with followups scheduled to assess response.  Since starting treatment he feels good, his bloodwork has shown improvement and we are hopeful that this will continue. He needs regular potty outings and supervision to avoid accidents. He can be a bit shy/nervous when first meeting people but overall is a happy, smart, social and energetic guy that loves to ‘talk’ and get into mischief. 

Angus still has followup required and is not  yet available for adoption. 

Donations to help with Angus’ care can be made by e transfer or link (see below)

COMPATIBILITY-PEOPLE: Good

COMPATIBILITY-DOGS: Good

COMPATIBILITY:CATS: Good

REQUIREMENTS: Would do best in a family where someone  is home throughout the day. Good with all people and pets but will require close dietary supervision so homes with no children or older  responsible children might be best. 

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.

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

Volunteer – Foster a French Bulldog

Fostering can be a rewarding experience and it is the heart and soul of our rescue efforts. Without our foster families we could not do this work. If you can help in this area, a foster application is available by clicking the button below. * Please Note * Foster homes must be matched to the dog in need therefore a questionnaire, reference and home check will be required prior to placing a dog in your care.

Surrender a French Bulldog

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.
