Hiya, folks! My name is Zion and I am a male French Bulldog who is about 5 years old. What we are sure about is that I love, love, love people! I am a very affectionate pup and want my humans all to myself, so I can get a bit jealous of my foster siblings if they are getting more attention than me. I could easily be an only dog or in a home with a submissive fur sibling due to my strong alpha personality.  I recently learned how to play with other dogs and with toys and that is super fun!  I'd do best in a home without young children and have not met any cats yet, but we could test to see and learn all about those things!

I can be a bit stubborn and insistent on getting my way, but I do well with positive reinforcement of good behavior and very much want to please my people. My forever family will need to be willing to lovingly correct me when I need a bit of discipline -they tell me I'm a typical "Frenchie male" whatever that means... I'd also love to do a basic obedience class with you to keep learning all kinds of new things.  I’m a rock star on a leash, so I do not need a fenced-in yard in my forever home. I am not a fan of my crate and will bark when I have to go into it. My foster mom has been giving me peanut butter kongs in my crate to help me adjust to hanging out in there. If my forever family chooses to use a crate, I will just need you to give me a kong and tell me I'm a good boy in it.  I am starting to get more comfortable that you won't lock me in there forever with a good routine and will now go take a nap in my kennel with the door open.  Because I am highly affectionate and super snuggly, I would do best with a family who is home a lot so that I don’t have to spend time in a crate.

I am working very hard on my potty training and do great on a schedule right now. I’ll totally be able to master it with a bit more time and consistent training. I know what “down” and “go potty” mean and my foster mom says I’m very smart. I love to go for walks, snuggle, and snack on peanut butter kongs and chewies. I do best with other pups that are my size and I haven’t met any cats or small kiddos yet.

My foster mom says that I am one of the smartest, most affectionate pups she’s ever had and I will happily take that compliment! Because I’m so outgoing I would make a great adventure buddy for someone who wants to bring me everywhere they go. So if you’re game for a snuggly, affectionate pup who would love nothing more than to explore the world together, I’m your guy! Fill out an application today and let’s get this party started!

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.  I n addition to normal surgeries like neuter and dental, Zion also had surgery on his nares and soft palate to improve his quality of breathing.  This is reflected within his 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.
