Making the decision to move to an apartment that allows dogs (although it cost more) was the best decision I've made in a long time. There's no comparison to how much joy a Frenchie brings to your life.
Ugh) Someone is lucky))) My boyfriend and I are living in a sublet now, so there is a no-no for any potential harmful creatures… including drunken guests.
But we will be moving to a new place in June, looking for one now. It is hard to convince most of the landlords to allow a dog. Especially a puppy, they all are worried - what if it will bark, what if it will pee etc. But I am sure we’ll find the way ))) Then, hopefully, by the end of the year I will become a frenchie owner!
I've recently moved home because of my first year of college so I can't have a dog here... My boyfriend's dad has a french bulldog though :D It's the most adorable thing ever but I haven't met him yet!
:) I knew people who had to wait for years before they could get a dog. College is important, and I am sure the time will fly by faster than you imagine. Still, you see - things are turning around nicely, your boyfriend’s dad has a frog-dog and you have a reason to get to know the breed before getting your very own pup :)
I would love to adopt a French Bulldog but I'm finding it hard to find a rescue center that has any, do you know any rescue centers in the UK that could help me?
Well, I can tell that the situation in Europe is very different than the one they have in the US. I myself live in Germany and I see how people treat their pets here. (in my city, Hamburg, we apparently have NO stray dogs and you should have seen the line for adoption in the shelter…) Anyways, from what I know you can subscribe to this web-site and they will let you know if there is a rescue dog of your preference in your area: http://frenchbulldog.rescueme.org/uk or here is a group and there is something about adoption: http://bulldoggroupuk.vpweb.co.uk/. Here is also some information: http://www.kennels.co.uk/Utility/FrenchBulldog.html
Hi I am looking into getting a frenchie in the next couple months, and my parents really want em to get a puppy because I have a little brother but I want to rescue one. I know the odds of rescuing a puppy frenchie are slim but do you know or can you possibly point me in the direction of frenchie shelters to look into before I go buy one from some where?? Thanks in advance!
This is really great that you decided to go for a rescue instead of buying the pup. There are definitely many positive sides of adoption beside giving a loving home for one more frog dog :) For example - you will know what kind of personality your frenchie has, whether or not he/she is good around children, other pets, if he/she is obedient or a Diva, and this all allows to address a lot of issues which with a small pup may yet to come. And another thing - all the dogs that are ready to be adopted has been checked up by the vet, treated if necessary, trained and you can get all this information before you decide if you want to welcome the new family member or not. If you buy the puppy at the pet store, they most likely will not be able to tell you whether or not there are any health issues within the blood line that you should be keeping an eye on…
You are right, there are not many cases when people give up pups for adoption, but you can always go with a young dog of 1-3 y.o. and just keep in mind, that this breed never actually stop being silly pups even in their senior years.
Here is a list of rescues in the US:
