I adopted my girl Daya from FBRN. Her transition to my home and specifically the resident frenchie was anything but smooth but everyone was incredibly supportive and willing to help me in any way they could. The organization is run by the most caring and compassionate individuals as evidenced by the lengths they go through to rehabilitate every dog that comes into their care no matter how dire their condition may seem. I thank FBRN everyday for trusting me to care for Daya. Everything about the process was positive and I will continue to support FBRN in any way that I can, they are truly amazing.

Do you have an close friend that you don't get to see often but yet know that no matter what this friend will come to your rescue no matter what? Well, FBRN is like that. I am FBRN Volunteer and Frenchie lover. I foster and and have adopted our foster, Lola from FBRN. FBRN is extremely dedicated to make sure that every dog that comes across has excellent care, latest treatment options and best foster parents possible. The amount of support and dedication is truly incredible. Because of their support Lola went from bold hot mess to a beautiful healthy looking in just a couple of months. A+ across the board.

After the loss of our you frenchie (Oscar) and a horrible battle with a large on line puppy broker. We decided to adopt. We researched fbrn and fell in love with everything they do. We thought we would get a dog on the first try.
We ended up with the perfect special needs guy on the third application process.
We became volunteers after the first try. We are here for the love of the breed.
If you put the animals outcome first. You will endure the process and end up with the perfect match for you and yours..
It doesn't get better than fbrn. Read all the info on the website.

I hope the person who would rather go to a puppy mill than try again for a rescue dog reads this.
Try Purebred breeders.com.
I made that mistake. They wont ask you any questions. But they will send you a sick or even the wrong dog, My frenchie developed terminal cancer at two. The replacement dog was deaf. with features that should have been red flagged by purebred.
I am currently trying to adopt a dog through fbrn. If I don't get the dog, Then they probably found a better match. (I hope not).
Thank you fbrn for being so thorough

I am a volunteer with the FBRN and just finished my first foster. I couldn't be more impressed with this organization. The dedication that they have to the animals in need is second to none. My particular foster was in dire shape when he first came to me, and they spared no expense for the expensive nights in the ICU, diagnostics, surgeries, medications, and supplements. The FBRN volunteer community is strong and supportive.

FBRN is first and foremost concerned about the dogs. As it should be. Their network is engaged in the cause and unified. I have referred them to many.

I adopted my sweet girl from FBRN. They were very truthful and made sure I was the right person to adopt.

They really care about their babies and go out of their way to make sure the fit between the baby and the forever home is good for both involved.

They answer questions, make recommendations and are so happy to see posts on how well their kids are doing in their new homes.

They are very truthful in every part of the process about the kids.

This rescue is top of the line. They keep the animals and all humans involved at the top of their concerns. FBRN is so through and well organized, they are a great model for all rescues. They helped connect us with our angel Ozzy, and were so thorough and continue to be with his follow up mental and physical health. Super thumbs up.

I have fostered, and volunteered for many years. FBRN is thorough in their screening and leaves no option unexplored, regardless of expense when it comes to care of the dogs. They are a phenomenal organization to work with

I've adopted two Frenchies from this wonderful network. They really care about their Frenchies and take special effort to make sure these dogs get the best medical care before they go to the right home.

I will never recommend this rescue to anyone. I watched a friend and colleague who is a veterinary professional, financially stable, owns their own home and has a ton of frenchie experience get denied not once but twice for a dog from this rescue. I have no idea who would be more well qualified. I don't know what kind of homes you are sending these dogs to if that's the kind of person you deny. Horrible.

What an amazing organization. They truly care about their Frenchies and are thorough with their adoption process. I adopted Tonka Sep. 2015 and since then I have been welcomed into thier Frenchie Family. All the volunteers, fosters and adopters are so nice, helpful and welcoming. If you're interested in adopting a Frenchie, this is the best organization you can find.

My little girl Zoe (2014 FBRN Grad Kourtney) was given up when she was six years old and was lucky enough to find her way to FBRN. Zoe was a tiny package with a big medical problem: megaesophagus. FBRN got her checked out from head to toe, and wrote a thorough description of Zoe and her medical and emotional needs. I just fell in love with her tiny grumpy face instantly. I wrote an impassioned application for her, in which I explained my experience with brachycephalic breeds and my willingness to cater to Zoe's special needs. The organization followed up with multiple interviews (from the foster mom, and the regional coordinator), and an in-home visit/interview from a local volunteer. FBRN's biggest priority was making sure that little Zoe was going to be safe, and loved in her new home, and I appreciated how much care the organization took. I was lucky enough to be chosen as Zoe's mom, and I flew to Louisiana from Washington to scoop my little nugget up! FBRN provided ample information and documentation on how to do a slow intro of Zoe to my other Frenchie, Louis, and had me sign an agreement promising that if for ANY reason I was no longer able to care for Zoe, that I would give her back to FBRN, because once FBRN takes in a pup, they are committed to that pup for life. I think that's so beautiful. I love this organization of passionate volunteers that care for this breed with so much love and dedication, and welcome new parents into the fold with open arms and a Facebook group for FBRN alumni that puts the best Frenchie photos in my feed ALL the time. I heart FBRN, and am forever grateful to them for saving Zoe, and choosing me to be her mom.

This a story about a little 2 yr old spina bifida pied princess frenchie we had the honour of adopting form FBRN 5 yrs ago. Chaya had a significant spinal curve and required diapers. She walked for most of her 7yrs, till her last months, while battling a protein losing disease that wasted her muscles. Through out everything, her love of live, spirit and joy was contagious. I fell in love with Chaya watching the videos that were posted of her...I would burst out laughing with joy ..my husband would come and sit and watch and we fell totally in love with her. Totally utterly in love. We were so fortunate to be chosen to be Chaya's companions. She made our live's fuller and richer and a hell of a lot more fun with her diva can do attitude and a smile that stretched from ear to ear.

FBRN saves lives, many would have put Chaya down without a second thought. FBRN saved her life and many many others. I volunteered with them before adopting Chaya and continue to do so now. It is a small way of trying to help and give back to this great organization.

We adopted our Frenchie boy Thorin from FBRN. From the phone interview to the home visit everyone was professional sand had the best interest of Thorin in mind. We are very blessed to be part of such an amazing organization and have been chosen to be his forever parents. We still keep in touch with his foster mom!

In 2014 we adopted a French bulldog from FBRN. From the very beginning we were very impressed with everyone, they were very thorough and provided the utmost support throughout the entire process. FBRN changed our lives for the best, providing us the opportunity to bring such an amazing puppy into our family. I will be forever grateful!

FBRN is a very ethical organization. Midway through our adoption, the dog we were interested in had a health issue develop. They could have hid this from us but instead they put a hold on the adoption until they resolved the problem at their own cost, and only allowed the process to continue after she was healthy. They have helped so many vulnerable dogs!

We adopted our Frenchie Maggie almost a year ago. I had never heard of this organization before until a friend told me about them. I feel like I won the lottery. They really care about the placement of these animals and that they are safe, happy and well cared for. They are a wonderful group full of love. We are now close friends with Maggie's foster mom. My heart is full thanks to FBRN.

I adopted my sweet, sweet Chloe from FBRN. Their volunteers are exceptional! Chloe's foster mom had her for six months and helped nurse her back to good health allowing Chloe to become comfortable in her home and part of her family. They are thorough in their screening of adoptive forever families. My screening included; a Skype call, an hour plus visit to my home and several phone calls. Chloe came to me in fantastic health and with enough of her food and medicine to get me through several days. Once the adoption was complete her foster mom and the director of adoptions remained available and very willing to help through any questions and growing pains we had together. I would highly recommend this non-profit!
