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

Morty is a handsome friendly 4 year old french bulldog in search of a perfect forever home or interim foster placement.
Morty loves car rides, playing with toys, having a bath and greeting people at the door with a favourite toy. He loves laying in the sun, giving kisses and being in the same room as his family. He doesn’t like having his nails cut, surprise touches or being alone and he can be protective of his food. He is social and friendly during the day but gets a bit cranky at night and when he is tired and needs his space.
Morty is in good health overall. . He has been diagnosed with mild IVDD so back care awareness is important. His best home would be a calm low activity home with someone home much of the time, no other dogs and no young or pre teen children. Breed knowledge and experience would be a plus. If you think you would like to adopt or foster Morty application links are listed.

LOCATION: BC (lower mainland)

HEALTH/BEHAVIOUR: Mild IVDD, food guarding

COMPATIBILITY-PEOPLE: generally good. May react if disturbed when tired.

REQUIREMENTS: Morty needs a home without other dogs or children under 12. He has IVDD so back awareness is important. A home without a lot of stairs and with a fenced yard is preferred. He does not like to be left alone so a family that is home much of the time is ideal

Handsome Louis is very much loved and cared for but due to owner health and an upcoming move he is looking for a new loving home. He is 5 years old, friendly, sociable, enjoys walks and chewing on his bone. He is in good general health with mild allergies controlled by a grain free diet and medication when indicated.. We are told that he comes when called but is rather nosey. He loves to lie in the sun and in the winter will look for sunshine in a room to rest. Louis would do well in an adult home or one with children 10 and up that can play with him and walk him but know to be respectful. He is afraid of thunder and loud noises and will hide in his crate during a storm. If you think Louis is a good match for your family an application link can be found below.

Mabel is 6 months old, friendly, playful and full of personality. She is quite sociable, loves all people and will do well with children over 5. She is good with other dogs, may bark with excitement if she sees one on her walks but is easily redirected. She may be fine with dog savvy, calm cats but likes to chase.

Mabel is working on her puppy manners. She gets excited at feeding time and will jump up but is learning to sit and wait. She is independent and will happily occupy herself with her toys and chewies. She needs to be crated on road trips or will get car sick.

Mabel has had all needed veterinary care, is up to date on vaccines, spayed and has had her nares widened. She is now in good health and ready to find her adoptive home.

Nova is a cute little one year old. She is cuddly, affectionate and playful with her foster mom but is less comfortable with men and children. She can be head strong and determined and will need good leadership. She enjoys balls and toys, a cuddly soft bed and she loves to eat. Nova is fine with other dogs and cats.
She has food allergies that are managed by diet. She has some skeletal anomalies with very short bowed legs most likely associated with chondrodysplasia and/or early nutritional deficiencies. This does not slow her down at all but she would do best in a home with minimal stairs and an awareness of any structurally imposed limitations. While Nova is in our care we will assess her needs and abilities and work on any behavioural concerns.

LOCATION: Ontario

HEALTH/BEHAVIOUR: allergies, under assessment

COMPATIBILITY-PEOPLE: selective/under assessment

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.
