We should point out from the beginning that our Frenchies are not in kennels and available for viewing. All dogs coming into the Trust live with one of our foster carers in their homes. We should also like to point out that the average age of Frenchies coming into the Trust is around 3-7 years old and it is rare that we have puppies in our care. However Frenchies can and do live up to 13 or 14 years old so even the older dogs can give many years of love and devotion to the right home.
There are many reasons why Frenchies come into the Welfare Trust. Some come with medical or social problems (which we endeavour to put right), but it is often through no fault of their own. Many Frenchies come to us due to marriage break ups, changes in working practices or home life, the death of owners or a mixture of ignorance, and misunderstanding of the Breed’s needs. Whatever the reason we are only to happy to help as the welfare of Frenchies is our only priority.
Frenchies generally coming into the Trust will have a short stay with a foster carer, where they will be assessed and if need be checked out by our own vets. Once the dog has been assessed a home will be found that suits the dog’s particular requirements.
