Hello, my name is Pika. I’m a gorgeous and friendly adult female French Bulldog who loves to play fetch with my soft toys; eat treats…especially apples; follow my people everywhere; and cuddle, cuddle, cuddle! I am also always eager to meet all the new dogs and people I encounter! I am a docile girl and although I’ve not yet met any cats, I am good with kids, so I think I’d be ok with the meowy things too (hee, hee)!

I am potty and leash trained but I currently only like to walk a couple blocks. I’m not sure why that is, but I think having another canine companion to accompany me might increase my desire to walk farther! As for that cave you humans call a ‘kennel/crate’…all I have to say is…don’t even think about it, and I will protest if you do! Just sayin’!

Anyway, I am a super sweet girl who is simply looking for YOU…a patient fur-ever family who will not only love me unconditionally and NEVER give up on me but who will be home with me since I don’t like being left alone! Hey, maybe you even have a fenced yard where we can play fetch! Oh my gosh, I’m so excited just thinking about it, I can hardly contain myself!! Love, Pika

Please note that some of our dogs are obtained from shelters, surrendered to our care, or released from breeders.  Each animal's bio is based on our experience of the animal within our care, an educated guess based on physical characteristics, temperament and information shared. Some of the animals come from situations where they are lacking experience in a home and confidence in humans. In turn, they require another companion dog and/or a fenced in yard in their forever home in order for them to feel safe. If you are interested in a  particular dog whose bio states those needs and do not currently have them, please understand that your home might not be the right fit.  Please use the filter on our Adoptable Dogs page to find the perfect match for your home.  
 

Bulldogs are a member of the Brachycephalic breed and therefore have a host of health issues that may arise.  Because these dogs are new into our rescue, health issues in the future may arise that we are not aware of.  Some of these issues are allergies, eye issues, yeast infections, interdigital cysts, slipped disks in their back, breathing problems, among a host of others that can occur at any time or when seasons change. While breed experience is not required, we encourage you to thoroughly research the breed and its financial, medical, and environmental needs to be sure the breed is a good fit for you and your family.  It is estimated that the average bulldog owner spends $2,000 per year on medical needs.  In addition to normal pre adoption surgeries, Pika also had surgery on her nares and soft palate to improve the quality of her breathing. This is reflected within her adoption fee.

Bulldogs are one of the most expensive dogs to own, maintain, and rescue and our adoption fees reflect such expenses.  The application process for bulldogs usually moves quite quickly as they are a popular breed, so we ask that adopters do research and be prepared for adoption at the time you submit your application.  They are happy, goofy, playful characters and we are excited you are taking the first steps into rescuing one!  

This dog requires an application fee.  This fee must be paid within 24 hours or your application will be considered void.    We will not review or contact applicants that have not completed the payment portion. Bulldog Applications will be responded to within 5 business days, after receipt of the application fee.  Please understand that paying the fee does not guarantee you will be approved to adopt the bulldog. Our goal is place bulldogs in homes that are suited for their individual needs. You may be willing and able to provide a great home, but if it doesn’t meet the specific needs of the bulldog, we will not approve your application.
