Calypso is ready to find her forever home! Calypso came from a puppy mill in the Northeast. She was purchased from the puppy mill after having a couple litters, but was returned to the breeder when she needed a surgery the owners could not afford. The puppy mill breeder surrendered her to a vet’s office who contacted French Bulldog Village regarding taking this beautiful girl into our care. We, of course, couldn’t turn this little cutie away!

Calypso has spurts of energy, but otherwise is pretty low-key. She has shown no aggression issues and isn’t scared of the vacuum or loud noises. She is an absolute sweetie who loves all people and will run up to anyone for some petting. She also gets along well with children and other dogs, including the other dogs in her foster home who range in weight from 40 pounds to 160 pounds. Calypso enjoys walks and sitting on the couch or bed watching TV with others. For being a puppy mill dog, she is very social.

She is only partially housebroken; therefore, she requires frequent visits outside to avoid accidents. She does not give strong clues about when she needs to go outside and will go in the house if not taken outside often. Calypso is leash trained and does not require a fenced yard. She is also crate trained. Calypso does not need a forever home in which someone is home all day with her or one that provides her with a midday break.

Calypso has no ongoing health issues. However, she did have surgery to repair a ventral hernia from repeated C-sections and an inguinal hernia repair. The ventral hernia repair required a mesh implant to be used for extra strength. There is a possibility that in the future her body could reject the mesh implant and it may need to be removed. We are hopeful that this will never happen but want to make potential adopters aware of such a possibility.

Calypso is a rather noisy breather and her breathing usually requires turning up the TV volume. 🙂 When she is relaxed or sleeping, she turns into a quiet breather. Calypso is incredibly sweet and loving. She loves to play and cuddle. She also loves toys, to be held, and to eat. She especially loves car rides!

Given Calypso’s amazing personality, it is so easy to fall in love with her. She deserves a forever home that will love and adore her as much as her foster home loves her. She also needs a home that will spoil her and take her on many car rides. This precious girl is one of a kind; once you get a hold of her, you will never want to let go. She is definitely a keeper!!!
