Success Stories

Ivy

Ivy, (formerly Starz), was a six -year-old puppy mill surrender.  From first time I saw her picture on the CFBR site, I couldn’t stop thinking about her.  In truth we were hoping for a younger dog, but she was just stuck in my head.  After about a week I showed her picture to...

Peggy

Peggy was taken in to our rescue due to severe neglect. Every bone in her body was showing when she came into rescue. On a scale of 1-9, where 9 is obese and 1 is a skeleton, Peggy had a body score of 1. She was very very weak. I realize now how much Peggy was...

Sweet Amelia came into rescue with severe hip displaysia. Her original owners brought her to the vet when they noticed she couldn’t walk well.

Moose

I adopted the infamous Moosie, and frankly I find myself very lucky everyday to have him in my life. I work at Hightails Hideaway and we foster many dogs so I am quite used to falling in love with dogs that I don't get to keep with me forever. However, something was very different when I...

Winnie

Was rescued from a shelter- prior to that, she was found wandering the streets in an area that has a lot of back yard breeders with a lot of frenchies. We believe they bred her till they were done with her and then kicked her to the curb.

Cody

Cody is a puppy mill survivor and is a very easy going and calm dog. She is still learning to trust people, but she’s making progress everyday. She is still very unsure and gets nervous when adults walk up to pet her. She gets along great with my 3 children. She gets less nervous around them than adults.

Bonnie & Angus

We adopted both Bonnie (or BB as we call her) and Angus, formally Titan, separately from CFBR. They quickly became the best of friends (though BB will forever remain the alpha dog...she deserves it after her hard life) and the loves of our life! They enjoy spending their days romping and playing in their yard...

Coco (formerly Dottie) has been a joy ever since she first bounded through our door with Mary. She is the most affectionate, loving pup, and all of our friends and family have fallen in love with her. She makes us laugh every day, and she is happiest when snuggling with both of us on the...

Moujik

My Thanks to the Chicago French Bulldog Rescue I adopted Moujik, formerly known as Marley, on May 16th. He is now 8 months old. I have always loved the name Moujik, and for me, a French Bulldog needs a French name! In French slang Moujik means “guy” and how perfect for this little boy. Every Frenchie...

Our daughters, Wendy and Jenny, also have Frenchies, Roxy and Zella, and this Christmas was such a fun one with all three playing and running around. They couldn't decide...
