I’ve been a huge fan of pugs, Frenchies, Old English Bulldogs, really any short-nosed dog, since I was little and my Aunt had a pug. That pug hated me! I still have a scar on my arm to prove that he did not want to go on my swing set with me!
As much as I would love to own a Frenchie some day, I think the chances are pretty low that it will happen because I just can’t bring myself to go to a breeder to buy one when there are so many amazing dogs that need adopting in shelters. There are rescue groups, but with the popularity of the Frenchie, it seems that most of the dogs that end up in rescue have some kind of issue, and they usually won’t adopt to homes with other dogs, or cats, or small animals, etc. I have them all.
Last night, a beautiful little Frenchie face showed up in my Facebook feed. She’s 7 months old, and she loves everyone, dogs, cats, kids, etc, WOW! I kept reading, and this little dog seems exactly like what I have been looking for. She had a rough start in life and had a broken leg that was fixed through surgery, but she seems to be getting along fine now. I couldn’t help myself, and I filled out the application.
She’s in another state, and I’m guessing there will be a ton of applications on her. I think my chances of getting her are probably pretty low, but I couldn’t resist trying. The rescue says the application process usually takes 4-6 weeks. My fingers are crossed and my references are notified!
What’s your favorite breed or type of dog?
