FRENCH BULLDOG RESCUE

Dogs in care

Harold is a happy, social, one year old neutered male French Bulldog that has a seemingly boundless amount of energy.  He is one of those curious, active, energizer bunny types that is always on the go and needs to be kept busy. 

He has had obedience training, knows many commands(though he does have selective hearing), is crate and house trained. He has some food and environmental allergies, no additional health issues.  

Harold is friendly and non aggressive but will require ongoing work with self control. He enjoys being around other dogs but his hyper activity can trigger reactivity and any canine interactions  will need supervision and management.  Similar high excitement when meeting people can lead him to jump up and playfully mouth/nip so a family with young children may not be ideal. 

LOCATION: British Columbia (lower mainland )

HEALTH/BEHAVIOUR: : Good health, some allergies
Friendly, social, high energy, needs work on self control

COMPATIBILITY-PEOPLE: good

COMPATIBILITY-DOGS: good with supervision – calm well balanced dogs preferred.

COMPATIBILITY – CATS: Unknown

REQUIREMENTS: Harold will need a family that is able to provide the structure and activity level he needs. Breed knowledge and a desire to maintain his training and spend active daily time with him is important. This boy is no couch potato!
He would do well with a resident dog as long as he/she is balanced and tolerant of his nature.

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

If you wish to surrender a French Bulldog into our care, or alert us to a French Bulldog  that is possibly in need of help, contact a member of our team for assistance. For your convenience an online surrender certificate is available by clicking the button below.

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.
