Lucky was dumped at the shelter at the age of 3 month unable to use one of her rear legs. After a quick check up it was determined that treatment will be too pricey, so puppy to be put down. A teenage girl volunteering at the shelter couldn’t let this happen. She and her mom took poor Lucky in hoping things weren’t that bad. They have already spent $1000 on vet visits, xrays, shots and pain meds. Unfortunately, Lucky needs a complicated and expensive knee surgery, and her new family simply doesn’t help this kind of money. They even concidered to surrender poor Lucky to FBRN so she could get much needed help there, but they found themselves very much attached to her and decided to fight this battle till the end…
Please help these kind ladies to raise money they need to cover the surgery! $5 won’t make much difference to you, but it will be a huge help for Lucky’s new family.
Thank you :)
Our follower Alison just brought home a new frenchie puppy named Zoe. As every 11 weeks old fur-baby little Zoe was curious to explore her new home, but curiosity played a bad trick to her. Being just 9 lbs of weight, she escaped from her puppy pen, fell down and fractured her elbow. Unfortunately, her insurance does not work for 14 days so the surgery cost will not be covered and Zoe’s mom needs your help.
Here is the fundraser, please support little Zoe on her way to recovery! Any donation helps.
Meet Camber! She is a 5 month old female French Bulldog! She needs surgery to have her “Cherry Eye” corrected.
Her human mom Emily adopted Camber from other family when they were not able to take care of her severe allergies anymore. Now Camber’s itchies are under control, but she has another condition she has to overcome before she is able to get a happy and healthy puppy life back.
Cherry eye is a condition when the gland in the third eyelid, located in the corner of the eye next to the dog’s nose, slips out of place and bulges. It’s possible cherry eye will correct itself within a couple of weeks, but it’s best not to wait. If it doesn’t correct itself, the longer the gland is out of place, the more swelling there is. This makes it harder to reposition it, and there’s a greater chance it will happen again. Left untreated, cherry eye can lead to more serious eye problems later on.
Camber’s vet set an estimated cost of corrective surgery on both of her eyes at $1200.
Please help Emily and Camber to raise the money they need. Every extra bit will go towards FBRN.
Dailyfrenchie uses this opportunity yet again to remind all dog owners of the importance of PET INSURANCE. Cherry eye can happen to any dog at any age. Please be responsible when it comes to our fur babies.
In early March Rambo took a tumble down a flight of stairs in our building and instantly began letting out that super high pitched frenchie scream. After being carried back upstairs he was not putting any weight on his back right leg. We took him to the vet immediately in the morning for X-rays a…
Fight like a frenchie!

Chopper is a 14wk old French Bulldog puppy who needs your help. His first attempt at walking downstairs resulted in a tumble that sent him to the ER. He has a fracture in the joint of his elbow which is going to require surgery ASAP to prevent any further growth plate damage.

Many of you will ask why just a broken leg need such an expensive surgery. Here is a link to explain Chopper’s condition: http://www.michvet.com/Client%20Education%20Handouts/Surgery%20handouts/Fracture%20lat%20humeral%20condyle.pdf
Should Dailyfrenchie remind you again how important PET INSURANCE is from the very first days you get your puppy?!
Okay, guys! Many of you remember little bug Opie - the boston, who was adopted by a nice girl, became a fur-brother for a frenchie named Rocco, and with help of Tumblr users and some of us - collected money to pay his eye removal surgery, when he was in pain because of ulcers. Opie was happy and pain-free ever since, but now his little family needs help again. Read the story below and help if you can!
Spreading the word helps as well.
Opie, my blind boston terrier needs emergency medical care & I’m hoping to start a raffle to help get Opie the vet care he needs. Earlier this week Opie stopped being able to hold his bladder in his sleep. We knew right away this was not normal for a 10 month old puppy, blind or not. Tuesday afternoon we brought him to the veterinary office for an exam. They looked the little guy over and told us after they took blood and urine that his urine came back normal but his blood showed an elevated white blood cell count. Which brought them to the conclusion Opie has something called a Kidney Stent. This causes Opies bladder to not be able to drain properly and is sending trace amounts of urine into his blood stream. To find out more they need to get an ultrasound of Opies kidneys and liver. This is a very costly procedure so we are hoping to start a raffle to help with the cost.
The raffle would be for every $5 donated to Opies care, would get your name thrown in for the raffling of a FingerDukes.com t-shirt. This is a local Kitsap County company and they have some REALLY cool stuff. You get the t-shirt of your choice off of their website in the size of your choice & also some home made healthy doggy treats.
If you know or have met Opie you know this booger deserves this. I wish I could do it on my own but I just don’t see that happening so I’m asking for your help. I would make a video explaining more but I’m just too awkward and emotional to get my point across. For anyone who helped out the first time we needed extra help with Opie. Thank you. You were part of a miracle. I hope we can make this happen again for the little guy. For any questions send me a msg. Thank you. Click here to donate.
This is Izzy.
Izzy was diagnosed with Hansen’s Type 1 Inter-Verterbral Disc Disease (IVDD). For many frenchie owners this diagnosis is a nightmare, since if not treated on time it may leave the pup paralysed. And the treatment itself is very expensive.
The vet said that Izzy needs MRI before anything can be done to help her get better. The procedures are $2000. She is such a sweet pup and her mom is desperate to help her!
Here is Chip-In. Please please donate for poor little Izzy. http://izzisurgery.chipin.com/izzis-surgery
Every dollar helps!
Reblogs are highly appreciatted. Let’s make a miracle happen.
On Thursday, May 3rd, SNORT was contacted about a beautiful 5 year old black masked fawn French Bulldog who had been dropped at a vet clinic to be euthanized due to a back injury. Sadly, like all too many Frenchies, Nina Simone had injured her back and lost use of her hind legs. Because Nina’s former owner waited nearly a whole week to get her into a vet (and when she finally did, it was to euthanize her), the chances of Nina recovering any movement in her hind end were extremely slim…Luckily, at the vet instead of putting her down, they started to look for a rescue - one of the rescues they’ve contacted was S.N.O.R.T.
Nina arrived to the foster care, and soon magic began: when no one else hoped for Nina to walk again, she stood up on her own not once but twice! Her foster mom rushed her to the specialists, where after a second exam they were told - Nina needs a surgery, but there is 90% of chance she will walk again!
May 18th the surgery was performed and went extremely well. Nina is recovering fast. Unlike the budjet of S.N.O.R.T., unfortunately. Please consider donating to help cover the expenses of Nina’s surgery and future therapy to help her regain strength in her hind legs.

One of our followers, Heather, sent me a link to Lilac’s story. She said it broke her heart, and I should admit, after reading it, I am tearing up as well.
Here is why…
Lilac was a breeder dog. She was advertised on Craigslist and purchased from Craigslist. When her buyer got her to the vet and saw what kind of condition Lilac was in, she called FBRN.
Lilac has problems. She was clearly bred until she couldn’t be bred any more. According to the vet, who lives deep in puppy mill country where vets have seen these things all too often, she was given “home-made” c-sections. A lot of kitchen table c-sections. She also has an oozing sore on her back that appears to have been a growth or cyst that it appears someone tried to cut off with scissors. One of her mammary glands is weeping. Her teeth are in bad shape, and they are worn down from chewing on her crate. She has no tear production in one eye and needs ointment and anti-biotics. Thankfully, she is heartworm negative.
Not surprisingly, Lilac is distrustful of humans, but she is eerily compliant. There is no spark of light in her eyes, and she has no spirit. She likes other dogs.
Lilac may never be a dog who can fully trust people. There will probably not be a long line of people waiting to adopt Lilac. It may be a year or two before an applicant comes along who wants a six year old with few teeth and the history Lilac has, but we know that someone is out there for Lilac because someone is always out there for our dogs. If you’d like to be part of Lilac’s rehabilitation and help FBRN find her true home where she can finally know some peace and kindness, please click on her photo and sponsor her. Feel free to send a few words of encouragement in the “message to seller” box. She’s going to need all the kind words and healing thoughts she can get.

No dog in the world deserves to be used as Lilac was. Please help us to collect as much donations for her as possible. Reblogging also helps.
