Belle ***Under Assessment***

August 28, 2019

4 year old French bulldog

*** Belle has a skin condition which is untreated. She has numerous bald patches.

She hasn’t registered with a vet and so it hasn’t been looked at. We need to get to the bottom of this before rehoming. It could be loss of nutrients having been heavily bred from. This is our first priority now she’s in foster ***

Bella is only 4 but has had at least 3 litters of pups. She was passed on once she wasn’t useful as a money making machine anymore.

She has had three homes in the last few months and doesn’t seem to know if she’s coming or going.

She was unhappy with visitors to her most recent home (she only lived there 4 or 5 weeks) and barked and snapped at them- particularly men. She seems very wary and bothered by new people until she gets to know them although we have had no snapping behaviour in her foster home. If people ignore her and let her settle at her own pace then she’s your very best pal!

She cannot be rehomed with young children for this reason.

She’s house trained although was having accidents as she was being left 8 to 10 hours each day.

She enjoys playing with other dogs.

Cats unknown

She travels well in the car

Walks nicely on the lead

She likes to chase a ball and loves games and interaction.

Belle’s story is the perfect example of the problem with “trendy breeds”. She is a gorgeous dog who needs a sensible home who can see beyond the idea of the “cute and fashionable Frenchie” and understand that dogs need consistency, care and patience.

Priority will be given to suitable people already home checked as of 20.8.19.
