Peaches may not have come from Georgia, but she is definitely a southern belle! She is a spunky puppy with lots of love to give and attention to seek. She came to the rescue because her family felt as though they weren’t able to give her the attention she needed and were having some difficulty potty training this healthy and active Frenchie. Good news, since being at her foster home, she has only had ONE accident in the house! It seems like consistency is key and with the help of her two foster brothers going outside regularly, she has been (almost) completely accident free!
Peaches is definitely an inquisitive puppy and loves to run and play. Her two year old foster brother has become her best friend and they are constantly rolling around and playing with each other. She also likes her older foster frenchie brother, but he is really only enticed by food and walks, so the younger pup is her go to. We’ve discovered, through our limited interactions with them, bigger dogs seem to be a definite no go. She isn’t a fan of vacuum cleaners either, but she does love kids! There hasn’t been a human, big or small, that she hasn’t loved so far. It’s pretty easy to tell what she likes, because her little tail goes crazy with excitement. That’s right, she has a tail!
Peaches loves attention, walks, cuddling on the couch and really anything else puppies like. When she isn’t playing with foster brother, you can find her laying on the back of the couch staring out the window at the cars and people outside, or chasing things around the backyard. If we let her chase cars, she would, but that’s clearly too dangerous. She is fully crate trained and hangs out there when her foster parents aren’t home. She also sleeps in there at night with no problems, but would love to sleep in bed with her foster family.
Peaches is a happy and healthy Frenchie puppy and would love a stable, forever home to continue to teach her how to be the best doggo she can be and provide a lifelong loving home!
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.
