Hi.  My name is Ronnie.  I am a laid back and sweet male Frenchie. I really love my people and want to be near them all the time - some would say I am a Velcro dog, but I would say that I am 23 pounds of love! I love to follow them everywhere - if the resident  dogs get too close to my people, I push my way in – but not in a mean way.  After all I am a French gentleman.  I think I could live in a home as an only pup and have my forever person all to myself so I do not need to have another dog living with me as long as my people are home quite a bit of the time.  I am not interested in the dogs in my foster home and while I do learn from them, we don't interact too much.  I have learned how to nap on dog beds and have been caught snuggling in together with the other pups!

I love treats and am beginning to learn how much fun toys are.  Right now, though, my favorite thing is to sleep.  I like to watch the humans run around and play and they don’t phase me at all. 

I like a fenced yard because I am still a little timid around loud, scary noises outside.  I have been practicing very hard at my leash training, and while I enjoy going for short, quiet walks, I prefer to while out on a walk. The humans tell me this is weird, but I just like the comfort and security of home.  I don't like that crate thing all that much and voice my discontent. The humans here leave me out while they are gone and I just rest until they return.  I am potty trained and know what "outside" means so that helps me know what is expected.  I also now "sit" and am working on "stay" - so I'm a smart guy!

I’ve never been around cats but I bet it would be OK if the kitty is nice to me and mostly leaves me alone.  I love to snuggle and sleep with foster mom at night.  Foster mom says I am a goofy boy who is still learning how to be a dog.  All I need is a loving forever home to help me become the best dog I can be.

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, Tyler also had surgery on his nares and soft palate to improve the quality of his 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. 

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.
