    Hi Everyone! This is my first post

    Hi everyone! My name is Erika, and I live in the desert valley area of southern California. I have been a volunteer with the French Bulldog Rescue Network for several years now. I have fostered 13 Frenchies thus far, and have "failed" with 2 of them. Prior to fostering Frenchies, I fostered Boston terriers and a litter of orphaned newborn kittens.

    My Frenchies are Remy and Travis.

    I have had Remy for 4 years now, and he is 10 years old. He has spinal issues that he was born with, in addition to degenerative changes of the spine over time. I fostered him for ten months and nobody applied for him, so I ended up adopting Remy myself. He is a happy boy but can be grumpy to other dogs when he wants to. But I just love him to death!

    Then there's Travis. I fostered him for a couple of months when my dear Boston terrier passed away tragically following complications from a diagnostic procedure right before Christmas. Travis has been a huge help to healing my broken heart, and I was allowed to adopt him just 2 days ago. Travis was a stray and is between 1-2 years old. He has chronic skin allergies but is doing much better with a regimen of medicated baths, limited ingredient diet, and medications. Travis is a total sweetheart and quite the lapdog.

    Hi Ericka and welcome! I would live to touch base with you on how to get involved as a volunteer!!! Maybe you can connect me with someone on the East coast.

    Thank you for opening your home to Frenchies in need!

    Hi Erika,

    Wonderful story. Congrats on adopting Travis! He is so lucky to have a forever home. I'm sure Remy likes him more than he may display.
