    Potential rescue adoption - phone interview

I'm on the verge of getting on a waiting list with the breeder I have chosen, but I feel so bad for the Frenchies that need homes and want to go that way, but they make it so difficult!

    Cosette is a cutie, I love the picture of her above! Thanks everyone for the kind words and encouragement. Sorry for the venting though, but it helps to have a place to discuss all this with with people who love this breed!


    Oh sweetie, don't lose faith just yet. I met someone wanting to adopt and English Bulldog in Maine, but she never seemed to get the chance either. Eventually one found her, and they have been so happy ever since.

    In the meantime you can get in touch with the breeder, especially if you are confident they are good people,, and where ever the pieces fall is where they fall. Just be up front with breeder that you will continue to seek out an adopted one in the meantime.

    Eventually this will be a happy ending, I just know it! Whether it be a puppy or a rescue. Chin up

    Damn, I was so hoping you would get her. Please try to stay positive, your baby will come along unfortunately, patience is never really a strong suit when we are in these types of scenarios. Do not apologize for venting... come here as much as you need to --- we are always here to help support you

    I am so sorry this adoption attempt did not go through, but do keep trying. The right little French girl is out there somewhere waiting to go home with you!

    Thank you everyone for your support and kind words. I'm taking a breath tonight (literally, Frenchies have ruled my evenings for the past few months!), and thinking about what I want to do. It's so tough to be denied that sweet little baby! I'm in tears because I've already started to get attached to the little bugger!

    Now, it's getting a bit ridiculous. How can a dog go "available" and then pending in less than 24 hours!!??? Really??? I'm starting to think you REALLY have to "know someone"

    I'm sorry Michelle. I sent a volunteer application to FBRN and guess what.... no response. That was over 2 weeks ago. They responded very quickly when I donated some $$$. Oh well, I think there are a lot of us out here with really big hearts that would love to do more!!! Good luck with the puppy search!
