It was the first time today that I walked this lovely little lady. She Was very good on the lead & liked to have a good sniff around. I offered her a treat but she wasn't interested as she was far too occupied with sniffing . As we walked back to the home she seemed happy with a spring in her step and very keen to acknowledge everyone she knew for a little fuss, quite a little character.
I just wanted to say while I realise that some breed experience is needed to re home this lovely girl, despite completing an application and visiting twice it has more or less been made clear without being said that we have no chance of becoming Fifi's new owners due to the fact we have never owned a French Bulldog before however we dog sat a family members Frenchie for over for 6 months.
We could quite easily go and buy a puppy but believe in giving a rescue dog such as Fifi a second chance, however I feel we are being overlooked when we know we could provide a secure and loving home.
It has actually put us off as to avoid further disappointment.
Hi I’m very interested in this gorgeous Frenchie and would love to give it the home it needs and if you don’t mind if I could ask a few questions, how old is he,is he full pedigree,is he aloud to be around kids?
Hi all, the forum is run by volunteers rather than the home itself so I’m afraid if you have any issues or questions regarding Fifi - or to find out if they’re still accepting applications for her you’d need to contact the Home directly. Either give them a call on the number in the original post or pop down there (opening hours as above).
There is a good reason why the staff prefer applications from someone who has previously owned, and can provide evidence of timely and appropriate veterinary care for brachycephalic dogs.
Many if not most of the incoming flat-faced dogs arrive with veterinary issues and have been signed over or abandoned because of financial implications and/or lack of veterinary care. So it's understandable that the staff would prefer to take applications from someone who can evidence that they have previously been able to provide the care these dogs need.
Newport City Dogs Home also prefer applicants who can provide grooming references for dogs with particularly high-maintenance coats.

If frenchie is still looking for a loving forever home my family is willing to take her in and give her a good life we don't want papers or to breed her just a pet to love and look after so if she needs a home we would be happy to offer one to her thanks
