" If he is breathing fine and not trouble, then I would not so the surgery. The neutering is totally up to you. They can sometimes develop problems later in life, but some never do. You can always neuter later if something comes up. "

" Attachment 11328

PAPPY IS LOOKING FOR A HOME THAT ISN'T GONE FOR LONG HOURS- LIKES TO GO FOR WALKS- LOVES TO HAVE A FRENCHIE THAT ADORES CUDDLING. Unknown how he would do with cats - SMALL DOGS HIS SIZE ARE IDEAL -PREFERABLY ANOTHER FRENCHIE. NO LARGE DOGS- NO CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 10.NO HYPER OR RUDE DOGS FOR PAPPY PLEASE.

Allow us to introduce you to Pappy, our foster Frenchie.

Pappy has been living with our family for about 2 months now and he is ready to find a forever family. Pappy was brought into the Chicago French Bulldog Rescue through an owner surrender in Arkansas and the help of a rescue alumnae in Louisiana. His owner had basically stopped taking care of him and decided he should give Pappy away. When Pappy came into the rescue he was treated for fleas and some skin issues related to his improper care and after making his way up to the Chicagoland area he was given the full workup by an outstanding vet in the area.

He was neutered, had is nares enlarged, his palette trimmed so he could breath much better, some skin tags removed, and underwent a full blood workup.

Presently Pappy is in great health and is only taking a pill to lower his liver count, and that may not be forever when he goes in for a recheck.The vet has estimated his age at around 6-7 years old.

Now for the good stuff, Pappy is a great companion. He is energetic and alert, yet so calm and sweet. He absolutely loves to go on walks so a fenced in yard is not a necessity. After a bit of activity he is very content to zone out on his bed or on the couch next to his human for a few hours. He has had some experience with other dogs and seems to really like the friendly ones that are about his size and shys away from the larger breeds. He has been friendly with all strangers including children but has not had extended exposure to young kids. We feel children over the age of 10 would be ideal for him.

If you think you might be interested in adopting Pappy you will be getting a wonderful dog who has great Frenchie qualities. Pappy is housebroken although he might try and mark a few times, especially if other dogs have been in your home. Pappy is comfortable in a crate when you are away,but will need a mid day potty break and will be very excited to head out for a walk when you get home. Pappy will be a great addition to any family looking for a Frenchie.

If you think you are the ideal forever home for Pappy Van Winkle- please go to our website and complete our on line application at Chicago French Bulldog Rescue |

His adoption fee is $400 and includes his harness- leash- collar- dog bed- heart worm and fecal negative- current on vaccines- dental done- palate trimmed- nare surgery completed- neutered and micro chipped. Also he will come with some of the food he is currently on.

MamaAndi created the thread ~Bitsy~French Bulldog Available for Adoption in Illinois.
" Attachment 11327

BITSY

Breed: French Bulldog

Weight: 15lbs

Age: 8

Gender: Female/Spayed

Medical Needs: Bitsy needs to take 1/3 of a Sucralfate 1 gm tablet once per day at a cost of approximately .40 cents per tablet. She requires over the counter moistening drops for her eyes once per day.

Good with Children? Yes, but will require children over 12 years old.

Good with other dogs? Yes. In fact SHE WILL NEED A CANINE COMPANION THAT WILL BE A GOOD ROLE MODEL AND MENTOR.

Good with cats? Unsure, but would guess she would be fine due to her gentle nature.

What type of residence would best suit her? Bitsy would do well in a single family home with no stairs and a fenced yard or in an apartment/condo with elevators in lieu of stairs in which she had to be on leash if outside the apartment.

Bitsy was one of many dogs confiscated in a breeder raid. There were more than 60 crated dogs in one building. All the dogs were taken to a shelter where they were cared for and housed for three months until the owner finally signed over the dogs. Bitsy came into CFBR’s care in August of 2017.

We wanted to ensure she has had an adequate amount of time to adjust to her foster home, have all of her medical needs taken care of and above all to gain some confidence around people. Bitsy was very shut down at the shelter as well as when she came to us. She scurried away when her foster mom attempted to pick her up and shook in fear most of the time. The shelter told us she would not eat in front of them. Bitsy would wait until the night when no one was around to eat.

Bitsy has a “dead eye” that was likely due to an untreated injury to the right eye. She had obviously had several litters. She has a vertical C-section scar on her side where they took the pups because the skin and tissue on her abdomen was too thin due to previous C-sections. Bitsy was also in need of a dental cleaning/extractions.

PERSONALITY: Good things come in small packages, and Bitsy is no exception! Bitsy is a sweet and gentle little frenchie girl. She is not at all aggressive. She needs to be picked up, held, and given love/pets consistently until she believes human touch is always a positive. The single most important thing Bitsy needs is a LOVING, PATIENT AND CONSISTENT owner. Bitsy used to live in fear and suffered mistreatment. It will continue to take TLC to undo the emotional damage she suffered. Bitsy is a quiet little girl. Her foster mom has only heard her bark twice in the four months she has been with her. She

can be hand shy and fearful when people approach. She is so much better than when she came to us! She will now sit and wait to be picked up IF you move slow and talk sweetly to her. She does now now approach her foster mom with the other dogs to get a treats. She gets very excited when feeding time rolls around and will be at the front of the pack waiting for her meal.

Bitsy has not much interest in toys or bones, and she is not an inappropriate chewer. She is very laid back and is content to just follow her foster mom around and take naps. When she came into foster care, she would usually struggle to get down when she was picked up. She has made a lot of progress and is more comfortable being held and getting pets.

It will be important for her new family to be prepared for an adjustment period during which she may revert back to some of her initial tendencies until she feels comfortable. She will need to be held securely so she is not injured should she wiggle out of someone’s arms.

MEDICAL:

Bitsy has a “dead” right eye (she cannot see out of it and it does not cause her any pain). The eye must have suffered an injury that went untreated. The vet told us that if we had the eye removed at this point it would be for cosmetic purposes only. The eye is not causing her pain. Her eyes are kept comfortable by applying drops 1-2 times a day (over the counter Bausch and Lomb SOOTHE lubricant eye drops-PRESERVATIVE FREE individual vials).

Bitsy was spayed and had a left groin area hernia repair. She also had a dental cleaning and a few tooth extractions.

Bitsy has some seasonal allergies that should be able to be controlled with medicated baths and a high quality diet. She has a tendency to get interdigital cysts (cysts between her toes) as a result of her allergies so it is important to keep on top of her medicated baths and apply a little benzyl peroxide ointment between her toes occasionally.

We had to find just the right diet for Bitsy since she had periodic episodes of vomiting (once with blood) and appetite loss. Bitsy was prescribed Sucralfate before meals and that has worked wonders. Her foster mom has weaned her down to 1/3 of a 1gm Sucralfate tablet in the morning before breakfast. The vet assured us that she can stay on the medication.

Bitsy’s paws are misshapen from living on a crate floor, so her nails need to be kept short. Luckily she is very good about having her nails trimmed.

DIET: After some trial and error, Bitsy seems to do best on a diet of ¼ cup kibble (currently using Eagle Pack Lamb and Brown Rice) mixed with Turkey/Parsnip Honest Kitchen or Bravo dehydrated Turkey Complete. It amounts to about 2/3 cup of food twice a day.

HOUSEBREAKING: Bitsy is good about going potty outside when it’s not too cold, but she does need to go out every few hours. Her foster mom leaves potty pads out for her and she prefers to use those when it is cold or rainy. Bitsy will continue to need a combination of let outs ever few hours and potty pads.

BITSY WOULD LOVE SOMEONE WHO COULD BE HOME WITH HER DURING THE DAY, BUT WOULD DO FINE IF SHE HAD SOMEONE WHO COULD LET HER OUT MIDDAY, LEFT HER WITH ACCESS TO POTTY PADS AND IF SHE HAD ANOTHER CANINE BUDDY TO KEEP HER COMPANY.

Honeys Owners replied to the thread My French bulldog has starter snapping.
" Agree, he could have orthopedic issues for example. Also, may be time to neuter him if he's not neutered already. Also have him evaluated for soft palate reduction and nostril widening if he snores and needs to have other surgeries done, so you can do both at same time. "

Honeys Owners replied to the thread Neutering.
" There really isn't too much of a health reason to neuter male if he isn't aggressive or humping, but you may need to neuter him for doggie daycare or kennel. If you decide to do the surgery you should take him to vet with bulldog experience to see if he needs soft palate reduction or nostril widening done at same time. My bulldog snores and she's very healthy and about 8-9 years old and she's never had any nostril widening or soft palate reduction, but if she needed any surgery I would get her evaluated for that as well.
