Support Adoption and Rescue. Why go to a dog breeder, cat breeder or pet store to buy a dog or buy a cat when you can adopt? Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life. What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes.
Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.

Any Male Female.Many of these dogs have health issues that must be addressed before they can be adopted. That is nothing new for us. Many of our foster dogs require extensive vet care regardless of whether or not they happen to be a fad color. Indeed, it is difficult to say whether the increasing surrenders of fad-color dogs are due to health problems related to the dog's coloring, or if there are just more fad-color dogs in the general population.
Regardless, we feel that we, as a group dedicated to the well-being of French Bulldogs, should address the issue of fad colors. First, let's define the term "fad color". Also referred to as "non-standard" colors, "fault colors" and by unscrupulous breeders trying to sell dogs for inflated prices "rare" or "designer" colors, a fad color is any color that does not conform to the breed standard.
According to the French Bulldog Breed Standard published by the American Kennel Club, the acceptable colors for the French Bulldog are white, cream, and fawn ranging from light fawn to a red fawn.
Allowable markings and patterns are: brindle yep, brindle is a marking pattern, not a colorpiebald, black masks, black shadings, and white markings. Dogs of any other color and pattern do not meet the breed standard. And yet some breeders loudly proclaim that they specialize in "rare colors". We would be only mildly surprised to see "highlighter yellow" or "bubblegum pink" Frenchies hit the market at this point.
The proliferation of fad colors is so recent, we do not yet know what health problems might be associated with each new color. A rare skin condition called color dilution alopecia, in which excessive pigment clumping causes breakage of the hair shafts and abnormal or stunted hair growth, seems to affect only dilute-colored dogs. There are currently three known variants of this mutation, but it is assumed that there are others that are as yet undiscovered, because the known variants do not account for all color dilution in the French Bulldog.
It is too soon to tell what health effects might come part and parcel with these unknown variants. This can eventually wipe out all fawn in the bloodline No more fawns, no more brindles, just black.

Solid black dogs are not the only ones who could cause this phenomenon. Solid blue and lilac dogs could also have the dominant black mutation in combination with a dilution mutation, and would also eventually wipe out the traditional coat colors. Additionally, double merle dogs can have multiple abnormalities of skeletal, cardiac and reproductive systems. It should be noted that the purebred French Bulldog gene pool does not carry the merle gene.
All merle "French Bulldogs" have been produced by introducing another breed, usually a chihuahua, into the mix. Is it possible for a breeder of fad-color Frenchies to produce relatively healthy, sound dogs? A fad-color breeder can employ scrupulous selective breeding and genetic testing.
It seems, however, that the majority of fad-color breeders are not selecting for healthy, conformationally sound bloodlines. They are not investing in the health and genetic testing commonly practiced by reputable breeders. They are merely breeding dogs that carry a certain color because they can convince members of the public to pay exorbitant prices for dogs with an unusual appearance.Our mission is to rescue brachycephalic dogs mostly French Bulldogs, Boston Terriers, Pugs, and English Bulldogs from shelters and owners who can no longer keep them, and place them into loving homes.
We believe all dogs should be given a chance and fair evaluation. Through education, training and matching dogs to the right homes, we hope to reduce the number of brachycephalic dogs that are euthanized unnecessarily. SNORT is an all-volunteer non-profit rescue based in the Northeast United States whose purpose is to rescue short-nosed dogs like French Bulldogs, Boston Terriers, English Bulldogs and Pugs from shelters and owners who can no longer keep them, with the goal of placing them into loving homes.
Through education, training and matching dogs to the right homes, we hope to reduce the number of short-nosed dogs that are euthanized unnecessarily. Learn More. Our Adoptable Dogs.

During the Phone Interview our volunteer will go over bulldog related issues, proper food, your knowledge of bulldogs and what type of personality would fit best your in home.
This gives us all a chance to talk about rescue and we can learn about your expectations for a rescue bulldog. If you have existing pets, it gives us a chance to meet them, too. We also check security of gates, fences and screen doors if applicable. We rarely get puppies. Please keep in mind that not all bulldogs are listed. Sometimes a dog comes into rescue and is placed in an approved home very quickly. Please be patient during the finding your bulldog process. We need to make sure we have the perfect match for you and our rescue bully.
We also have an adoption event once a month at our Adoption Center and Bulldog Store. This is a chance for approved homes to meet multiple bulldogs at once. Please be flexible to our schedule, as well. We very rarely get puppies through the rescue program.

If we do rescue puppies, they tend to come in due to problematic medical conditions that require a great deal of personal time and financial commitments to care for them.
You are giving a homeless dog a second chance. This means having the time and patience to work with social, emotional and behavioral problems. In some cases, a health issue is present. We disclose all information we are given and are aware of, as we want to make this as smooth a transition for the dog as possible.
Because of this we do not adopt out to families with children under 10 years old. This is for your child's and our bulldog's safety and well-being. We hope that as parents you can appreciate this. Yes, we do allow out of state adoptions but you MUST come to us to adopt.

Christine LeBlanc. Welcome to FBRN. IslaHope this helps sweet girl. I hope this helps little Isla! To an adorable Frenchie, from an adorable Frenchie!
For all those Texas fosters! Get healthy and find your forever homes! Shana L Horton. Love to you little sweetie, the most precious dogs that God could have created.
For Mae and Isla : I follow y'all on Instagram. Darden Alexander. Please earmark this memorial donation to Isla in VA. She is sweet, playful, and loves to cuddle. She has no idea that she has any issues and deserves a loving home of her own! Beautiful Isla has had quite a journey. She was found as a stray, picked up by a Good Samaritan, adopted from a shelter and then made her way into FBRN's care.
During her time with FBRN she has had nares and palate surgery, has undergone physical therapy, and has traveled from Texas to lovely northern Virginia.
She is still a bit wobbly, but she can prop herself up on her hind legs and easily do a few stairs. On hardwood floors her hind legs shake a bit, but they're very stable. She can generally hold her urine overnight in her crate, but sometimes she poops by accident. She has allergies to cats, human skin cells, and storage mites, so there can be no kitties in her forever home and no sleeping in the human bed.Browse thru our ID Verified puppy for sale listings to find your perfect puppy in your area.
