Babette, Brigitte, Claude, Rejean, John Paul, Jacques, Henri, Luc


Please read our dog bios carefully to be sure that the dog you are applying for suits your family and lifestyle. At Pound Dog Rescue, we believe in the benefits of post-adoption training for our dogs and their families. This allows for continued socialization, and learning and helps to create a well-mannered and balanced dog. Post-adoption training is a requirement in our adoption process.

Aren’t they adorable?  These puppies are 8 French Bulldog/Pug/Lab puppies born February 1, 2024.  There are 6 males and 2 female.  In honour of their mom who is a Frenchie X we chose traditional French names for the pups. We happily present to you:  Babette, Brigitte, Claude, John Paul, Jacques, Luc, Rejean, and Henri.     We took in their mom, Judy, from a vet clinic where she had been surrendered.  She was heavily pregnant and her former owner was not in the position to manage the care and costs of a litter of pups and the caesarian section that was inevitable, as this sweet small dog had been bred with a Lab type dog.  Judy is a 10mth old, lovely natured dog and the pups have taken on her temperament. Soon after taking Judy into our care she went into labour and off to the emergency clinic we went for the C section.  She was in good hands and these 8 precious babies were born and then brought home to be raised in a loving home with fosters very experienced in puppy raising.  

The pups won’t be able to go to their forever homes until end of March/start of April but we are posting them now in the hopes of having their adoptive families selected and ready to take them home when the time is right.  We know their mother very well and she is a total love of a dog.  She is quiet and loving and gentle natured.  Pups tend to take on the personality of their mothers so we fully expect these pups to be just as darling as she is. Judy is a small dog, weighing about 20lbs. She is a French Bulldog/Pug mix and is fawn in colour.  All we know of the dad is that he was a Lab type.   We assume he was a back Lab or Lab X as all the pups came out black.  We don’t know his size.   From the size of the pups we do expect that they will be medium sized dogs, around 25 to 40lbs full grown (but cant give any guarantees) and will be sturdy, medium energy dogs capable of doing most things you wish to participate in.   We expect that they will end up looking a lot like smaller sized Labs, like mini Labs. So if you love the look, temperament and energy level of a Lab but don’t want a large dog, these pups might just be what you are looking for! Or maybe you love the goofy, happy nature of the French Bulldog but don’t want the array of medical issues that can come with a purebred Frenchie..then these pups may be perfect for you.  Or maybe you adore the friendly nature and overt happiness of the Pug breed, black Pugs in particular, but just don’t want to deal with the problems that can come with the pushed in noses that the brachiocephalic breeds have…well have a look here!!  With the mix of breeds in them, we expect these pups to be great family pets. All 3 breeds are known for lovely temperaments.  These pups are super friendly and love nothing more than to play with you and cuddle with you.   They are quite energetic now but will mature into moderate energy dogs.   They will be very interesting looking dogs and their owners will surely get a whole lot of “what kind of dog is that?” questions…and then the look of surprise when you tell them!!   The pups are being socialized with other dogs and cats in their foster home.  A home with dog would be fine, but not necessary.  We won’t consider a home with an active, very large breed dog in it though, these pups are small and fragile…they can get harmed too easily with rough play from a big dog.  For the same reason we will not consider homes with kids under 6 years of age.  

Anyone interested in one of the pups needs to live within 1hr of Cambridge, Ont as they must be returned to our vet later on to be spayed/neutered.  They will be adopted out on a contract that stipulates this and it is mandatory.  This is covered in the adoption fee.

We will only consider homes for the pups where someone is home or has the capabilities to come home throughout the day.  Puppies need to be taken outside for bathroom breaks very regularly when they are small and will not be able to hold it for an 8hr work day.  Please keep in mind that if you work from home you need to have a plan in place for a crating schedule for the pup as puppies need 100% of your supervision when not in their crates; you cannot expect to work and have the puppy running around in the room with you as they won’t have your full attention.  We are also looking for families that are fully aware of the time commitment of a puppy and the work involved.  Puppies are a total joy and bring so much love and happiness into a home, but you cannot underestimate the work and time involved in raising a puppy properly.  They need constant supervision while young to expedite the house training stage and to ensure they aren’t chewing on anything inappropriate.  We are also looking for a family that will crate train the puppies as we fully believe that this is the best for pups and offers them a quiet and secure “den” to call their own.  A crate trained pup is a blessing as it offers a safe place to put them when you can’t be watching them all the time

We will be expecting our adoptive families to attend puppy socialization class with their new pup immediately upon adoption, along with, at minimum, level 1 obedience school after. The guidance and lessons learned in puppy classes are very important to getting your pup off to a good start.  We handle these pups every day and will be offering them everything they need to be the best pups they can be when they leave our care but we need the adoptive families to take over for us when they get the pups home.  We take our responsibilities to these pups very seriously and only want the best for them.  They are being raised in our home, in our care, and have been since the first day when they made their presence into the world. We adore these puppies and will settle for nothing less than a dedicated, loving family that is well aware of the breed requirements and the needs of a puppy and this breed mix.  We also are looking for families that want the dogs they will grow to become, not just the little bundle of furry cuteness.  If you have been thinking about adding a medium breed puppy to your family and have the time and patience to properly raise a pup then they may just be perfect for you.  We know you will fall in love with them as deeply as we have when you meet them.  They are simply adorable puppies.  The only question will be, which one to choose? 

 (please note: we will be placing these pups into homes based on temperament and best suitability for each particular home.  Please keep in mind a good temperament and personality match is the most important factor for a successful puppy adoption.  We will be selecting pups for families based on this, and of course with the families input as well.  So families with open minds and the desire to have their best puppy match only please!)
