Meet Manfred, aka Manny. Manny comes to us all the way from Massachusetts. His prior owners divorced, and neither cold keep him. Manny is 5 years old, and is quite adorable. Who can resist a face like that. Like many Frenchies (or dogs from families that don't handle the breed correctly), he has some 'quirks'. Manny is a guarder of his 'stuff', and certain boundaries must be set in the beginning for him to be successful in a new home. For example, he shouldn't be on the couch with his human until he earns it. That is is his biggest 'value' item he protects. Once he gets on the couch, he will try and protect it and growl and snap.Otherwise he will show teeth or growl. So being on the couch MUST be earned. He likes to be in charge. He would do best in a home with leadership and discipline. Given too much too soon, he will take over. Manny is currently on Prozac to help him deal with some of his anxiety. Some stems from being moved from his home. Some comes from being allowed to be in charge. But mainly his takes what's his. If he feels safe, in time he can have free roam of a house.
Manny needs to follow the rule that 'nothing in life is free' concept so he doesn't take over and has to earn his place. Manny is a fear biter. Therefore, if he feels threatened, or put in a situation where he feels unsafe and not secure,  he will fear bite. Manny is NOT aggressive. He just has limits as to how to be handled until he trusts. He fosters now are working with him, and he's made a lot of progress. We will post an update on him soon once he's been in foster care a little longer. But please know that he IS a good dog who craves the love and attention of people. He is fine with other dogs, but has little interest of people.  If you have Frenchie experience, know about fearful dogs, and are willing to invest your time, love, and patient with this deserving boy, apply now. 

My adoption fee is $350, which covers the cost of routine vetting, rabies and distemper/parvo vaccinations, deworming, spay/neuter surgery, heartworm testing, my microchip, monthly heartworm prevention, monthly flea/tick prevention, and any transport costs if applicable.

You can save animals like this one by becoming a foster home for a dog in need! Fosters are like way stations between high kill shelters and forever homes. We need fosters so that we can save dogs before they are euthanized at the shelters. If you are interested in becoming a foster, please check out our information about fostering on our website:

MMR covers the vet care, food, and tools to get started. You supply the love. Fostering saves lives. Sometimes a foster home is the only thing standing between life and death.

About Mutts Matter Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

A Little History... Mutts Matter Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non profit, all volunteer based organization, with combined rescue experience of over 15 years. We work in conjunction with shelters and other organizations to help save animals on death row, the strays on the street, or ones in unsafe living conditions. We adopt in the DC, VA, and MD areas, with a few exception out of the tri-state area depending on the dog and situation. We are driven by love, compassion, and hope.

All of our rescues enter their new home spayed or neutered, up to date on all shots, and are micro-chipped. If we take a dog into our rescue, we do our very best to ensure that they are healthy before going to their new “furever”home. With enough hard work and dedication, we hope to be able to empty the shelters one day soon.

Our Adoption Process...

We require you to fill out an adoption application on our website at
The application will ask for both a vet and personal reference. Both will need to be verified. After those are checked, a pre-screener contacts you to discuss your application.
Once that is complete, they screener decides if they are recommended for a home visit. If the home visit goes well and they are approved to adopt, then they can meet the dog.
Our adoption fee includes the cost of routine vetting, spay/neuter, and microchipping.
