Match.com and E-Harmony have nothing on FBRN, where we found our perfect match! We got a call from Nessie's foster mom (the matchmaker) asking us for a "date". We wanted to jump through the phone, but tried to play it "cool"! Just a day later, we were able to meet the little Noodle - and it was love at first sight. Nessie is a LOVER! We were so lucky to be able to adopt her. FBRN is an organization that truly cares about the well being and happiness of the dogs entrusted to them. It has been 6 wonderful years with Nessie now, and I have since become a volunteer for FBRN and have expanded our family by another 3 (uhm, cough, yes, 3!) FBRN Frenchies. The other volunteers and people, who have adopted from FBRN feel like family - we're so glad to be able to be a part of this wonderful group!

I adopted my second French bulldog from FBRN, and I believe that it is one of the best organizations out there. The time and care that goes into preparing each dog for adoption is extraordinary. Their disclosure of each dog's needs and quirks is second to none. They really do their part to ensure that the adopter is informed and prepared, and offer a wealth of support and information to adopters, potential adopters and the public in general.

My life was forever changed in 2008 when I adopted my frenchie from FBRN. After adopting her, I soon realized just how much blood, sweat, and tears FBRN puts into these wonderful little animals, and I felt that I had to pay it forward and become a volunteer myself. This is such a great organization, and I find myself recommending them to people interested in adopting frenchies all the time. It never fails to amaze me how well-managed this organization is, especially for being run solely by volunteers. Such a great group!

When my French Bulldog Rosie passed away, I was devastated beyond belief. My other Frenchie Maggie missed her fur sister as well, so I decided to find her a companion. I was fortunate to find out about FBRN and kept looking for a foster that would be a potential match. I was lucky to be selected as the forever mom for foster Loki (now Jack)! Before the adoption was finalized, an FBRN volunteer did a thorough background check and home visit. On December 24, 2010, I picked my fur baby up from his foster mama and he fit right in.

The FBRN team is amazing - they are always available for advice on health or behavior issues. They stand behind the dogs - if for any reason an adopter can no longer care for their FBRN grad, the rescue will take the dog back. FBRN goes above and beyond - fosters are evaluated and given necessary medical treatment before adoption. They have wonderful events where alumni can get together and work to raise money for the fosters. I will be forever grateful to them for bringing my sweet Jack into my life.

FBRN is an incredible organization that goes above and beyond to ensure their foster dogs receive the best care possible and are placed with the appropriate forever families. From the detailed application process through the home visit and reference checks, FBRN puts the welfare of the dogs first and foremost. Not only that, but everyone I've interacted with in the organization is great. They're always there to answer questions, and are infinitely patient with new "parents". Anyone looking to add a Frenchie to their family should visit FBRN's website. Adopt, don't shop!

I have been a volunteer with FBRN for a little over a year and am honored to be a part of this amazing rescue. I have learned a lot about rescue in general, made some friends, and helped some very special dogs. I love what they do for the Frenchies and I love being a part of it!

I contacted FBRN to apply for a French Bulldog. They absolutely did their homework to insure myself and my home would be a good home for a baby. After their approval I was introduced to the sweetie that wanted to be mine.

Everything they said about my little girl was true and I knew exactly what to expect, My sweet Elle came with her vet records, supplements, toys, bed and harness and leash. Her foster moms let me know her schedule for feeding and how much time she liked to walk. They also knew she liked to take a toy on a walk. My little girl is a happy healthy forever kid and FBRN was very honest and careful with the placement

We adopted our Queenie (Winnie '14) in September of 2014. FBRN was recommended to us by knowledgeable dog trainers and Frenchie lovers in our area. The process was professional and thorough. I didn't expect so many telephone interviews and a home visit! This told me that they were very serious about placing their charges in the right home. We drove from North Georgia to middle Florida to get Queenie. When we picked Queenie up, the foster mom shared very detailed notes with us on the medical needs and behavioral quirks of our new addition. It was very obvious that the foster mom was very loving and took very good care of Queenie (Winnie) during the foster period. We were very impressed with the organization and have been more than happy with our little Queenie. This organization has very special, dedicated workers and volunteers to help orphaned Frenchies.

We adopted Max (aka Slider 2013) from FBRN. They were so thorough with their interviews and I can't say enough good things about them. I was asked to attend the FBRN May summer bash to see another dog I was interested in. My hubby and I signed in and off we were to see all the Frenchies and parents you could dream of. It was them I met Letitia and she told me about Max. She said the other doggie was not a friendly kind of dog and that Max was a doggie that need a lot of love and attention as he like to eat things. We then went over to him and never left his side. His foster mommy Andrea explained what he had gone through and that he was not the easiest fellow to deal with, but he would be your love if you let him. 2 years later we still have him and I just adore him. We are ready to adopt another frenchie and I am even thinking of flying to another stat to adopt a pretty girl in Colorado if her foster mommy will let me. You see----the make sure you are the right match for their baby as they have to make sure it is a perfect match for everyone---and to make sure the frenchie is never going to have to leave their forever home. This is by far the best placement and loving group I have ever dealt with and we have adopted boxers and pugs. Other non-profits need to follow their code of ethics and placement as I honestly cannot say how awesome they are!! If you want a frenchie and are willing to wait for your perfect placement and know exactly what type of dog you are trying to adopt. Well FBRN is it

We adopted Hobie from frenchbulldogrescuenetwork.com 2 years ago and he is an asset to our family. The love and continued care we receive from the foster mommies Khristine Terlinde and Shannon Jordan have developed into wonderful relationships. I would highly recommend adopting thru this organization and will continue to do so myself.

Hello, I adopted Ginny in 2013. The FBRN had received her at 4 months of age and had taken care of her through her spayed, FHO surgery and cherry eye surgery. They did all the surgeries and nursed her to where she could walk and run for the first time in her life. Her foster mom was the greatest. I adopted her at 10 months of age and this little girl is full of life and personality. She wears a diaper, which really is not a big issue in her care, as I am so in love with this little girl. FBRN is the best for taking care of Frenchies in need and taking the best care possible of them to ultimately get them in forever homes.
