Daphne has found her new home in St Andrews West, Ontario, Canada in March, 2013!
Little Daphne will be staying right where she has been since she came to us as a sickly, flea infested little puppy. Her foster mom has adopted her, and Daphne will share her days (and nights snug in bed with the rest of the crew) with her Puggie sidekicks Ollie, Abby, and Phoebe, and Boston Terrier, Edgar – but you can still find her on our Facebook page. Come visit!
Levi found his new home in Sunfield, Michigan in February, 2013!
Here is Levi in the Michigan woods with his new mom. It’s been a long and exhausting journey for Levi, and we are so happy he has found a forever home with his new mom, her husband, and their assortment of dogs and other creatures!
In early November, 2012, we euthanized Sophie.
Losing Sophie has been heartbreaking for all of us, but most especially for her foster mom, Karen Williams, who took her in to her home in October of 2011. She had such high hopes for Sophie, we all did. She was FBLCR’s first foster dog, a five year old owner surrender, turned over to FBLCR by the FBVillage, after she had bitten the husband in her FBVillage foster home. With nobody available to take her in the United States (FBLCR was less than a month old!), Sophie made the long journey from Virginia, where she was first taken into foster care, to the province of Ontario, Canada, where we hoped that she would receive the training that she needed to make her safe to place in a forever home.
By the time she came to FBLCR, she had already been in three homes and one foster home. Her first owner traveled extensively and left her shut up in a bathroom for days on end, with only the attentions of a dog walker. When she was just a year old, she was turned over to a second family, where she stayed for the next four years, where she was never accepted by the other two French Bulldogs already in the household. From there, she was passed on to yet a third home. After one short month, a month spent desperately trying to gain the affections of her new male owner and jealously attacking his wife, Sophie found herself moving on once again, this time into the custody of the FBVillage.
Luna has had a short but difficult life. In just over two years, she’s been bounced through five homes that we are aware of. Rescue first began tracking her when she showed up on Kijiji, an online sales site in Canada. From her first ad, Luna re appeared time and time again, her price slowly dropping, but her owners never willing to turn her over to rescue. Finally, she ended up in a community in far Northern Ontario, with an owner who had been uninformed of Luna’s medical issues, and was unprepared financially to handle them. She contacted us, and we began the process of trying to get Luna to Southern Ontario – a fourteen hour drive along an isolated highway, in the middle of a Canadian winter.
Thanks to the efforts of multiple volunteers, Luna has made it safely south, and we’re now able to begin getting her the care she needs. Luna has food allergies, and her itching has irritated her ears to the point of causing double hematomas – pockets of blood which accumulate on the ear flap, creating hot, painful swellings. Left untreated, they can scar, or the inflammation can affect the inner ear, leading to hearing loss.
Bernie came from the Brampton Animal Shelter in Brampton, Ontario. He was brought to the shelter by a concerned neighbor, who often saw the energetic little dog running around loose in the street and knew it was only a matter of time before he would be hit by a car.
The owners were notified numerous times by the shelter to reclaim their dog, but they never responded. Bernie remained at the shelter for a month, during which time he was treated for an ear infection, seborrhea on his chest and belly, and sores on his feet. He was eventually spotted by a volunteer for Pugalug Pug Rescue from Toronto, who was at the shelter to pick up a foster Pug. A French Bulldog owner herself, she immediately spotted the little dog, and contacted the French Bulldog Last Chance Rescue.
