Hello, my name is Gracie. I am a stunning young adult female Frenchie with a spunky, sassy, playful, and extremely curious personality! Not only do I enjoy going on short, leashed walks, but I love gnawing on Benebones, eating flowers, and chewing on pretty much anything I can get in my mouth! Hee, hee!! Honestly, when it comes to my chewing, one must think “toddler” …that’s right, I like to get into everything and put whatever I find into my mouth! Hee, hee!! For this reason, although I’m good with older kids, younger ones are probably not a good fit for me because I may accidentally mistake a hand for a bone, and I bite pretty hard! LOL foster mom is happy though because I do choose dog bones and my things 99% of the time!

I have not met any cats, but I am good with other dogs and would love to have a doggie playmate in my new home. I am a smart girl who does well with the leash & crate, but I admit I can be a bit vocal in the crate. I am still working on potty training but I’m confident that with a consistent schedule I will master it in no time. I am eager to learn new things and would love an obedience class to help teach me not to jump. I would also like to mention that I have tiny ear canal openings, have had previous ear damage, and I’m food sensitive, so I will need ongoing ear & allergy care that will require high quality food and may require lifelong daily medication.  I am currently on Apoquel that costs about $100 a month to keep me itch free.  I am a bit more high maintenance in terms of keeping my allergies at bay, but I make up for it in love.

I am truly a precious girl who is simply looking for a patient, unconditionally loving, Frenchie savvy fur-ever family who will NEVER give up on me! Please be my new family…I promise I’m worth it and I will love you bigger than life!! Love, Gracie

*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, Alesandra 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.
