In Memory of Beef

October 22nd, 2016|

It is with great sadness that we learned of Beef’s passing. We send our love and deepest sympathies to his family.

Here is the email that we received from his forever mom:

“Beef was rescued from the Village in 2009; we had only 7 ½ years with him.  He, like so many other Frenchies, had horrible environmental and food allergies. When I saw his big smile and his floppy ears (from total ear canal ablations) my heart filled […]

Sweet Bella

July 28th, 2016|


Bella was adopted by Elizabeth from the FRENCH BULLDOG VILLAGE in 2009.

Bella was an owner surrender to the village in 2009, at about 7 years young.  She came from Savannah with severe allergies and hardly any fur.  Her forever Mom Elizabeth fixed all that up.  Bella was a riot and had so much personality.  Her toys had to be in a certain place.  If you put one in Bella’s crate she would get […]

The Village has some very sad news to share. Our sweet, precious Lacey crossed the Rainbow Bridge on January 22nd. Her cancer was spreading and she was slowly losing the use of her front legs. She passed away peacefully with her devoted foster mother by her side.

My husband, Steve, and I are so sorry to inform you that our handsome young gentleman, Rocky, took his trip across the Rainbow Bridge yesterday around noon.

Run Free, Maggie Pie

October 2nd, 2014|

We received an email today from Maggie Pie’s forever home, letting us know that she has crossed over to the Rainbow Bridge.  Maggie was one of the EC-12 girls.  The EC-12 were former breeding dogs that were surrendered to the Village.  They had lived their lives confined to crates and so when they came to us – they had never walked in the sunshine or rolled in the grass before.  We are so thankful to […]
