Adoptable French Bulldog: Lucy is Looking for a Forever Home

Written by:

French bulldogs have become a breed that is widely popular — and when wanting to rescue a pup {which should be the go-to — even with unique breeds}, it’s a lot harder to find a Frenchie to rescue. But we’re here to tell you that it is possible, thanks to S.N.O.R.T. Rescue, a rescue dedicated to short-nosed dog breeds {such as pugs, French bulldogs, English bulldogs, and Olde English bulldogs}. This rescue, founded by a local Hoboken resident, helps dogs internationally — the latest group of bulldogs and pugs being from China, saved from the dog meat trade industry — get adopted in the Northeast of the USA.  And lucky for those wanting to rescue an adorable French bulldog and not purchase from a breeder, there’s a very sweet and adoptable French bulldog named Lucy that is up for adoption! She is being fostered by our founder Jen in Hoboken — and is the sweetest thing. Read on for more about Lucy’s traits, her medical condition, why she’d make the perfect addition to a home, and how to adopt her, below!

Please make sure you read through medical requirements and traits in order to ensure that you’re the best fit for her and your family. Lucy’s adoption page can be found here.

Breed: French bulldog

Weight: Approx 20lbs

Age: 2 years old

Ideal Home: She would love to have an owner who either works from home or is home most of the day to monitor her Epilepsy condition.

Personality: Lucy is a sweet, loving pup who enjoys playing and snuggling. She loves meeting new people and gets along well with other dogs (cats unknown). Filled with sweetness, her personality more than makes up for her medical conditions. She adores her people and will follow your every step, soon becoming your shadow. She is highly adaptable and does not require a fenced yard. Whether, city, suburb, home, or apartment, this gal will do fine in just about any environment as long as she gets plenty of attention.

Medical Notes: Lucy, who has Epilepsy, was surrendered to a vet hospital when she developed pneumonia and her owners could no longer afford her extended care. She was on oxygen for over a week and almost died. Lucy then had surgery on her nares and palate to help her breathing and she was also spayed. During that surgery, they realized she had laryngeal collapse issues. Her seizures were controlled with meds prior to getting pneumonia and being admitted to the hospital. The hospital did not observe any seizures in the 3 weeks she was with them.

Lucy needs medication 2x per day at regular times for her Epilepsy. It is very important that her new owners be diligent about giving the medication with a very routine structure.

Additionally, since she has been diagnosed with laryngeal collapse, she should avoid rigorous play or long walks in which she could get overheated. A calm household will best meet her needs. As she ages, her conditions could progress.

Kids: Yes, but older preferred as she would do well in a calm home environment.

Dogs: Yes

Cats: Unknown.

Crate-Trained: Yes

House Trained: Yes

Other training: Lucy knows how to sit [when treats are present!]. She does well on a leash and with other dogs, and loves to play.

Leash Manners: She walks on a leash, but loves a quick walk to get her business done. Because of her  Loves to go for walks and walks well on a leash.

How to adopt: Fill out the form to adopt her here. The form will only be open for a few days, so it’s crucial to do it ASAP if you are interested.
