Annie Mae or Annie for short, the one-year-old French Bulldog, found her way to Lucky Bulldogs Rescue when she was released from the commercial dog breeding industry. She has never been a pet before, but you would never know it. She loves the kids, men, women, dogs, chickens, cats, and everyone else she has encountered here at her foster home.
Annie loves her people, and she is quite a Velcro girl. She doesn't seem to discriminate on who she gets to attach herself to, she just loves to be stuck on someone. She loves her people so much that she fancies herself a pint-sized protector. She may be tiny, but she is a mighty girl with a fierce personality. She will bark at any noise she does not approve of to protect her human. Once she deems the situation safe, she gets the zoomies! Annie loves to play with toys, and sometimes shoes. Since she is new to this whole pet thing and young, she will need redirection when she plays with things that aren’t toys.
Annie does very well in her crate which is where she goes when her humans are away. Annie sleeps through the night like a good girl too, but she is used to a king-size bed when it's time for night-night. She could sleep in a kennel overnight if her new family prefers it, but we all know where she wants to be!
Annie is just about the most perfect pint-sized Frenchie we've seen yet! She is spayed, up to date on vaccinations and has been given a clean bill of health by our vet. She’d love to be a part of an active family who is ready for a playful companion.
While in foster care, all our dogs are thoroughly vetted. Any discovered medical issues will be disclosed above. Our Lucky Bulldogs (and their smushie-faced buddies) are cleared by their vet for adoption prior to us accepting applications. All our dogs will be up to date on Rabies & DHPP vaccinations, up to date on Heartworm preventative after a negative Heartworm test, and spayed or neutered prior to being adopted out to their forever homes. Often times, our dogs are given dentals and sometimes nare-widening surgery if needed while under anesthesia. All surgical and medical history we have will be shared with adopters. Further details can be discussed with the foster volunteer during the phone interview for the applications that are chosen to proceed to the phone interview part of the adoption process.
All our dogs are crate trained unless otherwise noted on their "All About" pages.
We typically will accept applications for our available dogs for 1-2 weeks except in cases of overwhelming popularity where we may stop accepting new applicants sooner. Once we have stopped accepting applications, we will review them and proceed with a phone call with our top applications to chat about the dog being applied for, go over the adoption process, and answer any questions the potential adopter has. After phone calls take place, we will decide on our top applicant choice and proceed to contact them to schedule a home visit (in person or via video chat), and check vet and personal references before the adoption is ready to be completed. This process can take up to 6 weeks, but we do notify all applicants of the outcome.
