Mack is ready to find his perfect forever home!

Mack was surrendered when he got into the, not at all appreciated, habit of bypassing KFC and going straight under the coop and directly for the chickens with whom he grudgingly shared the farm where he lived. His first family couldn’t stop that behavior, so they put him on Craig’s List, and from there a Good Samaritan purchased him. From the looks of things, it was clear he needed to see a vet; so his Good Samaritan made that happen. He was examined and it became obvious he had some kind of underlying health issue given the skin sores, hair loss, and pot belly that he presented with. Eventually, it was determined that he had Cushing’s Disease. It was decided Mack should come into the care of FBLCR where he has been receiving great veterinary and diligent home care. He is doing very well now, although in addition to his Cushing’s, Mack also has chronic dry eye, and some of those little teeth were not so much cute as rotten and have had to be extracted.

Mack would do well in a quiet home, with a fenced yard, and most importantly NO RESIDENT BIRDS. Older children in the household would be ok. Mack can get snarky with other dogs, especially if they come around his crate while he is in it, although he could maybe share his household with a laid-back dog who wouldn’t try to get all up in Mack’s business and/or invade his space.

Mack‘s ideal home, because of his medical issues, would include someone with experience monitoring changes in health and knowing the importance of being consistent with daily supplements, medications, eye drops, and the like. Having a trusted vet who knows how to deal with Cushing’s Disease as it ebbs and flows is also a necessity for Mack‘s future. But here’s a bonus: Mack enjoys going to the vet! We suspect it’s because he is so very handsome and the people there treat him like a rock star.

Mack is house- and crate-trained, which are two great pluses, although he does need a consistent schedule for taking him outside to maintain that housetraining. He is playful in short spurts, but mostly he likes to take walks and snuggle! He loves to snuggle, so anyone who is yearning for a snuggle pup, he’s got you covered! Mack would also be a good companion to take to work, if you have that kind of job, so long as you take frequent snuggle breaks!

If you feel like your family might be the perfect forever home for Mack please fill out an adoption application today!

French Bulldog Last Chance Rescue does not ship dogs as cargo. Adopters are expected to pick up their dogs from the foster family. Please be prepared to pick up Mack in person if you are interested in adopting him!

About French Bulldog Second Chance Rescue - VA Foster Home

About Our Rescue Group...

French Bulldog Second Chance Rescue is a 501(c)3 non porfit organization. We rescue, rehabilitate and rehome French Bulldogs in need located within the United States and Canada. Formerly French Bulldog Last Chance Rescue, we have reincorporated in the state of Iowa and are now known as French Bulldog Second Chance Rescue! All of our volunteers are non-paid volunteers from all over North America, from the U.S. and Canada, who have a special interest in seeing that homeless French Bulldogs get at least a chance at finding a home.

As French Bulldogs continue to grow in popularity that is, unfortunately, accompanied by an increase in the number of French Bulldogs shunted off into rescue. The numbers are so alarming that French Bulldog rescue groups nationwide are finding themselves faced with the horrifying reality of having to turn dogs away for lack of funding, lack of resources, and lack of prospective foster homes. The first group of Frenchies to be turned away are the French Bulldogs who are deemed to be too “difficult” to place. For example, dogs that are showing any type of aggression or behavioral issue for being frightened, poorly socialized or distrustful are many times turned away by other rescue groups due to lack on resources and qualified foster homes for these dogs. That is where French Bulldog Second Chance Rescue comes into play.

While we do our best to welcome and take in any French Bulldog in need, French Bulldog Second Chance Rescue is focused mainly toward helping and taking in those Frenchies who other rescues are not able to take in – those who need more time, socialization, training, and rehabilitation due to behavioral issues.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Because all of our dogs are fostered in private homes across the United States and Canada, there is no central location where you can visit them. We do our best to screen adopters carefully and ensure that any potential adopters and the adoptable dog in question will be the absolute best match possible!

Our Adoption Process...

Please visit our website at: http://www.fbscrescue.org/adoption-process2.html

ADOPTION PROCESS

1) If you have made the decision that a French Bulldog is the right dog for you and your family and you are interested in adopting from French Bulldog Second Chance Rescue, the first step is to review each dog’s bio on the Available Dogs page. Please read through each dog’s full bio to help you determine if that particular dog’s temperament and/or physical needs will be the right match for your family and lifestyle.

Also, please be aware that some of our foster French Bulldogs have special needs – temperament or health issues, or both. Please consider all of the dog’s needs, and that you are prepared and able to handle these needs, before you apply for any of our dogs, but especially for one of our special needs French Bulldogs. Please email fbscrescue@gmail.com for any questions that you might have regarding any of our dogs and we will forward your questions to the appropriate person.

2) Complete the online adoption application. Please make sure that you provide as much information as possible about yourself, your family and your household in your adoption application. The more information that an application contains, the easier it is for us to determine if the French Bulldog you have applied for is a good match for your home/lifestyle/family.

We only accept applications for dogs that are currently available for adoption and on the Available Dogs page. We do not accept applications for French Bulldogs that are on the Foster Dogs page.

3) Upon submission, your adoption application will be received by the French Bulldog Last Chance Rescue Foster Coordinator. Adoptable dogs are available for 1-2 weeks after they first become available. This should allow any interested parties enough time to submit their application. We do not adopt on a “first come, first serve” basis. Our goal is to find the best match we can for each French Bulldog and each family. When it is time to review applications, the Foster Coordinator sends all adoption applications for that dog to the foster family. The foster family reviews each application and conducts phone interviews to help determine which applicant may be the best match. If you are chosen as a potential adopter, your veterinary reference will be checked, and your personal references will be called. If all goes well up to that point, a home visit will be scheduled and conducted by either the foster home, a French Bulldog Last Chance Rescue volunteer, or a FBSCR representative closest to you.

4) Once the home visit is completed, the home visit report will be reviewed by the Foster Coordinator, foster family and the French Bulldog Second Chance Rescue Board of Directors, and a final adoption decision will be made.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

All of French Bulldog Second Chance Rescue dogs are spayed or neutered (unless a prevailing medical condition indicates that spaying or neutering is not in the best interest of the dog), current on vaccinations, and micro-chipped prior to placement. We try to ensure that all French Bulldogs placed are in good health, or alternately that all KNOWN health conditions and temperament issues are identified to the potential adopter prior to placement.

Before you adopt a dog from the French Bulldog Second Chance Rescue, you will be asked to complete and sign an adoption agreement and a liability waiver. The liability waiver is a requirement for ALL dogs adopted through FBSCR. Please read the agreement carefully and make sure you understand and agree with the all of the terms before signing.

Adoption fees are listed on each individual dog’s available bio once they reach the available page. The French Bulldog Second Chance Rescue Adoption Fee Schedule is as follows:

8wk – 2 yr old – $700
2-4 yr old – $600
5-7 yr old – $500
8 yr old + and special needs – $350.00

It is the sole responsibility of our adopters to make transportation arrangements to pick up the adopted dog in person. FBSCR will not pay for transportation for any adopted dog nor will we include transportation fees in the adoption fee.

We make every effort to complete the adoption process as quickly as possible, but it can take 2 to 6 weeks after the dog has been posted, so please be patient!

If you have any additional questions, please feel free to email us at fbscrescue@gmail.com.
