Rescue Me ID: 16-11-18-00292Napo (male)

French Bulldog    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Low Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    BEAUTIFUL FRENCH BULLDOG FOR ADOPTION MEET NAPO-NAPPY-NAPOLEON !! EXPERIENCED OWNERS ONLY, NO CHILDREN. NO EXCEPTIONS. PLEASE CROSS-POST AND SHARE THIS BOY FOR ME. I TOOK HIM IN AS A LAST RESORT AS HE WAS GOING TO BE EUTHANIZED. LAST RESORT DOGS ARE WHAT I LOOK FOR AND SPECIALIZE IN AND I BELIEVE NAPO CAN AND WILL BE PLACED. PLEASE READ ENTIRE POST CAREFULLY AND THROUGHLY BEFORE INQUIRING. I CAN NOT, AND WILL NOT VEER OFF OF ANY OF THE PARAMETERS OUTLINED IN HIS BIO. ALL QUESTIONS WILL BE ANSWERED IN THE THREAD SO I DON'T HAVE TO REPEAT MYSELF FOR OTHERS. Napo is 8 1/2 years old. Neutered, UTD on all vaccines, crate trained and 100% ... (Read More)house broken. In the photos in the thread are copies of his original owners so you can read not just from my bio, but their first had experience with him. Just because I'm not experiencing the same issues with him as his owners did means nothing. The issues exist and are there. I just normally have a different experience then the owners because I have 28 years of dealing specifically with fear, fear aggression, outward aggression, resource guarding, dog aggression, human aggression and separation anxiety. Right now Napo is with me and my efforts are focused soley on getting him to a baseline or back to ground zero because his last trainer sent him so far back Napo has actually regressed as opposed to improved. This trainer's archaic, barbaric and antiquated techniques do not, and have never addressed Napo's underlying issues. This is the third dog this year I've taken in from the same trainer after he set them backwards. Freedom, space, respect, and decompression are at the core of Napo's rehabilitation with me. The owners informed me every time he came back from the trainer he was just a bit worse. Who it is doesn't matter. I need to keep this about Napo. But behaviorally issued dogs should NEVER be dealt with from an obedience or dominant standpoint. Because of Napo's few specific issues does NOT mean he is aggressive across the board. So having him drag a 6' leash around for the past two years, and being 'pop-leash' corrected on a walk every 30 seconds has nothing and does nothing to do with the issues Napo has. What it does do is create fear in an already anxious dog that is being corrected out of the blue, in which many inexperienced trainers believe that this type of 'alpha' 'pack leader' bullshit tv trainer mentality will transcend across the board and the dog's issues will magically disappear. Not the case here. Not the case ever. If the person or couple lucky enough to qualify to adopt Napo follows my procedures and protocols there is a very likely chance Napo will never bite again. I've done it with Vegas, and 1,000's of other dogs that had a bite history much worse then this dog. Napo's history: Napo has bitten three times in his 8 1/2 years. Once at two years of age. And two times two years ago. The first time resulted in no breaking the skin and was over a bone. The last two incedents two years ago were both while resource guarding his vomit. Yes it is very common for Frenchies to throw up when they eat too fast (which Napo does) And no it is not unheard of for dogs to be protective of their vomit. What we as humans find disgusting dogs simply see as food or a meal. And there is no more primal behavior then eating to a carnivore like a dog. Domesticated or not. Some dogs just resource guard food period. It wasn't dealt with at a young age so the correctable psychological behavior is now physiological do to repetition, pattern, habit, and time. (length of time) Although I can take Napo's food away from him at any given time does not mean he will not exhibit the behavior again. I take food away from 200 lb food aggressive Neo's. The real issue is his vomit. The vomiting issue has for the most part been resolved with the special bowl he eats from twice a day and the smaller bites that go down easier. What Napo throws up is not rancid, rotten spoiled food. Just what gets stuck in this throat. So for him what comes up is solid undigested food that he still views as his meal. Totally normal. Unknowingly to the owners. They just went to do what any normal dog owner would do to clean it up, and it was after the 2nd bite they discovered the pattern and that was his trigger. How do we deal with this trigger ? Do we do what his last trainer did and instill fear with a negative enforcement correction ? Or do we give positive reenforcement ? NEITHER. We practice abstinence training with a dog of Napo's age, and the length of time he's exhibited the behavior. So two options are given if this were to happen again. 1) He is given ample time to re-consume his meal if he so choses. Or 2) he is led away from the vomit and it is cleaned up while he is out of view, in another room or in his crate. Napo is extremely food motivated so a higher value reward then his regular kibble will lead him away and the mess can be cleaned when he is secured. We are not trying to solve the prob (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-11-14-00010Tinkers (female)

French Bulldog    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Tinkers is our 5 1/2 year old spayed female French bulldog. We have had her since she was a puppy. We have always loved her, but she does not like our 16-month old son at all. She has growled and nipped at him in the past. We have tried to just keep her separated from him, but it hasn't fixed things, and we feel it is unfair for both her and him to keep things this way. Tinkers is a territorial/dominant dog. She does okay with other dogs in an off-leash dog park setting, with slow introductions. For some reason, though, when we are out on leashed walks, she always growls and lunges at other dogs. We have also had another dog in our house ... (Read More)at different times. Once was dog sitting another frenchie and another time was when a golden retriever lived with us for several months. Both times, Tinkers would repeatedly pick fights with the dogs. She would resource guard with the dogs, and also show other territorial behaviors. Both of the other dogs were very pleasant, but Tinkers just does not like other dogs in her space. Even though the retriever was 4 times her size, and would fight back and hurt her, she never seemed to learn her lesson. :( She also stayed with a cat for a couple months, and repeatedly chased and fought with this cat, even though this cat had its front claws and really got the better of Tinkers. Tinkers is house trained, and is very obedient. She absolutely loves her daily walks, and loves being with her humans. She is used to sleeping in our bed with us, but is also fine sleeping in her crate, and is used to being in her crate at various times throughout the day. She does not have any health problems. She seems to do much better on grain free food. Because of how she acts with my son, I really don't think she should be in a home with small children. I think children over 5 would be fine. She hasn't shown aggression to adult humans. Other than maybe growling when we pick her up wrong, and it bugs her. Other than her aggression with small children and other dogs, she really does not have any behavioral problems. She is very smart, and does what she is told. She doesn't destroy anything or bark a lot. She will bark if the doorbell rings, or she thinks someone is coming to the door, so she is a very good guard dog. Bottom line: Very sweet, energetic dog who needs to be an only dog, with no children under 5. No health problems, and is well behaved. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a French Bulldog in California
    French Bulldogs can make good pets in California if they match your IifestyIe. The French Bulldog is a small Bulldog with a playful, humorous personality. French Bulldogs are very sweet and affectionate. Training should be gentle and consistent. French Bulldogs must not be neglected; they need to be with their people. French Bulldogs do fine with older children and can usually be socialized to get along with other dogs. Some males may be aggressive toward other dogs. French Bulldogs are a good choice for apartment life and need to be guarded against extreme heat and freezing temperatures.

    The French Bulldog is nicknamed Frenchie. Frenchies are excellent mouse hunters. French Bulldogs were bred from miniature English Bulldogs imported to France and crossed with French Terriers. The English were outraged that this breed became known as the French Bulldog.
