Story
Calling all Frenchie lovers! Cannoli is a beautiful 1 year old French bulldog who has been looking for her forever home. We pulled her from the harbor shelter where she was surrendered because the previous owners didn’t have knowledge of frenchies and decided she wasn’t a good fit. She had severe allergies and a skin infection which was cleared up with cytopoint, antibiotics and a change of diet. We think she’s been overlooked because she doesn’t have the traditional Frenchie face (a bit smooshed) but she is definitely all Frenchie. She has her own funny quirks that will brighten your day and make you laugh. Her favorite thing in the world is shoes, whether while on your feet or on their own. If you give her an old shoe, she will self entertain by running around the yard with it. Tennis shoes are her favorite. She’s incredibly sweet, crate trained and potty trained. She gets along with all dogs and cats and loves all people. She doesn’t bark or cry but does snore while sleeping. Please give her a chance. She deserves a loving home. Her adoption fee includes: wellness exam, vaccines, microchip, deworming, flea treatment and spay. P.S. she also thinks she is a turtle so she puts her bed over her as her shell 🐢

Story
Meet Chopper! This sweet senior guy was relinquished to us because his owner passed away. He is incredibly loving and loves other dogs. He is a mellow guy who would like to go on short walks and be a couch potato. He has a great personality. He deserves a loving home after losing his Dad after almost 11 years of him having him. Will you be his forever home so he can live out his golden years? Adoption fee includes: wellness exam, dental, blood work, vaccines, microchip, neuter, flea treatment and deworming.

Story
Meet Marley! Marley is a very tiny 5 month old French Bulldog who is looking for a loving forever home! She is incredibly sweet and has such a spunky attitude. She has been diagnosed with Hydrocephalus which causes her to overstep, shake a bit and be a bit unbalanced. She likes to play and chew on her toys. She is a bit delicate and will need an owner that can watch her consistently and be careful with her. With other animals, she needs to make sure she can't be squished. She does well with all dogs she has met. She will need ongoing veterinary care through her life but is loving everyday she is living! It is important to note that Marley will not live a full long life. Please email us to find more about her to learn about her specific needs.

Story
Dolly is a loving and extremely friendly 4 year old purebred tricolor brindle English Bulldog with lots of love to give! She was an owner surrender from a previous breeding operation. She is very affectionate and loyal and will cuddle up to you on the couch. She is a gentle, smart and curious dog, but can also be funny and quite a couch potato. She would be the perfect addition to a family, as she loves kisses, cuddles, kids and other animals. Dolly has met numerous dogs and cats big and small and she was great with them all. The original owner got rid of her son previously a few months back, so she is very reliant on having another dog in the house. She would love a family with kids or a couple- just wants all the love, but you must have another dog. Her adoption fee covers: wellness exam, spay, microchip, flea treatment, vaccines, deworming and dental. P.S. She has the cutest underbite of them all :)

Story
Monty was pulled from a shelter and I have been fostering him for the last month. He has so much personality and as an experienced dog owner I have not seen in many pups. I nurtured him and he is now up to date on all his vaccinations and is microchipped. Just wants to be loved and he would make an excellent companion for someone that is looking for a four legged buddy.
