Breed: French Bulldog
Current Location: Allen Tx
Adoption Date: August 7, 2019
Adopted by: The De St. Germain's
Our volunteer Diane De St. Germain fell in love with Dove the first time she worked with her at the sanctuary. Poor Dove was frozen in fear and couldn’t even get herself up to move about.
Diane said I’m going to foster her and that’s when her and her husband Jody fell in love with watching this sweet girl come to life and they knew they couldn’t let her go. They did have some concerns with her inability to move about on a leash, Diane and Jody are retired and RV around while traveling and Dove needs to walk on a leash and potty on a leash. We sent Travis to their home to begin the process of working with her to accomplish that.
She will live in Allen, TX. and she has two Frenchie siblings named Coco and Jojo and Dove’s new name is now Bubu.
How about that?
Happy life Bubu and happy traveling!!
She was the oldest mama at the puppy mill auction and has lived her whole life in a cage making puppies for the public. She is completely terrified of the outside world and will need a very patient family to help her discover what being pet means, she is 7 years old and we are so glad to have her away from that life..
Remember how shut down and terrified Dove was when she first came?
Take a look at the confident face she has today. Foster mom Diane has done a great job working with her and here is her update on this sweet girl:
Her confidence grows each day! She wants to be in the room with us at all times but still cowers when we approach to pet her. She will take treats from our hand and loves to collect all the toys for safekeeping in her bed! She has the run of the house now and is completely housebroken. I moved a bed into our bedroom next to my side of the bed and that’s where she sleeps at night. We love seeing the changes in her and we will continue to work on her trust.
