Shimmer came to rescue via a puppy mill sellout in MO. She is a pretty French bulldog. She weighs 21 lbs and her DOB is 4/9/2009 which makes her 7 years of age. Her coat is a light fawn. She has been spayed, fully vaccinated including rabies, dewclaws removed, nares widened, teeth cleaned, heartworm negative, receives monthly heartworm preventive and is microchipped. She is a reserved girl and would rather be with her family than running and playing. Shimmer is still working on her crate and house training but if her new family will let her outside first thing in the morning, several times during the day and right before bed time she will continue to improve. Shimmer MUST have a fenced yard to potty and walk around. She really would like to be an only dog with a family that is retired and can give her all of their love and attention. She is not aggressive but will stand her ground if another dog gets in her face. Her new family will need a family that is willing to be gentle and kind teaching her to trust them. Due to her reserved personality, she is being fed in her crate so none of her foster furfriends intimidate her. She has never been around small children but should do fine with children at least 12 years of age IF they have been accustomed to having pets and how to treat them. Prior French bulldog experience is a plus and will be given priority. BTRA will do adoptions beyond our usual area of MS, AL, GA, TN and northwest FL. You must provide us the name and contact information for a reputable rescue in your area that is willing to do an on-site home visit for us. The adopting family and the dog must be a perfect fit. We do not ship or otherwise transport our dogs so you have to be willing to travel both ways in case the adoption does not work out. Our dogs cannot be flown if the airline requires them to be in cargo. If you are interested in caring for and loving this handsome and fun loving frenchie, please go to www.btralabama.org and complete an adoption application.
