We are officially accepting applications for Honey! Female, very small Labrador (only 56 lbs) Great with kids and other dogs. Located in La Mirada CA. Approx 12 mos. old. PLEASE NO CALLS OR TEXTS AS WE ARE ALL VOLUNTEERS, COMPLETE AN APPLICATION IF INTERESTED: saveabowwow.com/rescue/adoption-form If listed, dog is available. Once dog is pending adoption, this page will reflect that information. She rides great in the car but does need work getting into and out of the car willingly. Whomever adopts her should spend some time doing short exciting car rides with her to break down the hesitation to go for a ride. Walks good in harness. Playful with other dogs. Is 95% housetrained already with a doggy door. Still quite a puppy very playful. Loves other dogs and kids. She enjoys it when her foster family works from home or has a day off because she likes to snuggle. She’s SMALL for a lab but has the perks of the breeds personality without the XXL size you typically get. Rescue has paid for AKC Microchip, harness, collar, leash, ID tag, Rabies vaccine, DHLPP vaccine and her spay!.. Saveabowwow.com/rescue/adoption-form

BORN 10/17/23: READ COMPLETELY: PLEASE NO CALLS OR TEXTS AS WE ARE ALL VOLUNTEERS, COMPLETE AN APPLICATION IF INTERESTED: saveabowwow.com/rescue/adoption-form If listed, dog is available. Once dog is pending adoption, this page will reflect that information. Rescue pays for nares! And alter, AKC microchip, 2 deworming, 3 rounds of puppy shots and Rabies 1 year vaccination as part of this adoption. COLLAR / HARNESS & PERMANENT PET ID TAG PROVIDED TO ADOPTER. Leo is INCREDIBLY SMART and needs someone to continue working with him. He is treat motivated. Learns quickly so needs someone consistent to keep going through his routine. He’s such an incredible puppy! He has slight breathing troubles with his born into nares. So the rescue paid for his nose to get altered for larger nostrils. Fine Print: -All of our French bulldogs must be walked with a harness (never on a neck collar). -The rescue requires adoptive family to obtain pet insurance for coverage of congenital and hereditary conditions. This is for any of the dogs in our rescue identified as a French Bulldog or a Frenchie Mix. Adoption will be finalized once the proof of pet insurance requirement is met. (There are some great policies ranging between $28-32 per month) -We have an open door policy and are always here to discuss anything that may arise with your adoptive pet. After an adoption is conducted please do not hesitate to reach out. -Please no texts or calls, apply if interested. -This breed generally speaking cannot swim and will sink like bowling balls so we do not adopt out to any homes with unfenced pools. Note: All breeds and ages are our veterinarians best educated guess (unless otherwise stated that our group has breeder paperwork)

Story
Pending adoption 1/28/24. SURGERY SCHEDULED 1/28/24. Photos do NOT do him justice. He’s an incredibly gorgeous dog. A home that uses their AC is important. He gets hot easily. Isn’t one for walks, likes to play in a small kiddy pool, loves all people he’s met. Larger than our normal Frenchies but very muscular and we get compliments every time someone sees him. PENDING B.O.A.S., A VERY EXPENSIVE SURGERY PAID FOR BY THE RESCUE. He is Available for meet and greets but wont be placed instantly because he needs this surgery to help him breathe better. PLEASE NO CALLS OR TEXTS AS WE ARE ALL VOLUNTEERS, COMPLETE AN APPLICATION IF INTERESTED: saveabowwow.com/rescue/adoption-form If listed, dog is available. Once dog is pending adoption, this page will reflect that information. Note: All breeds and ages are our veterinarians best educated guess (unless otherwise stated that our group has breeder paperwork). Age is approximation. 3-4 years is guesstimate based on owner turn in information and veterinarian consensus.
