Anyone who attended Le Taste of France Show September 29-30 will agree that the cutest event, by far, was the French bulldog show. Although Bruno took home first prize, all 25 finalists glowed in the spotlight as they hammed it up for the adoring crowd.
Although the dogs themselves provided the vital component, the show would not have been a success without help from the French Bulldog Rescue Network, an organization founded in 2001 to find homes for these adorable, bat-eared pups. With a mission to “rescue, rehabilitee, and rehome Frenchies in need,” they were the go-to authority on all things French bulldog for Le Taste of France.
FBRN had a solid presence at the show, as well. Gui, a current foster dog looking for his “forever home,” show up with a blue chariot in tow, posing for pictures with many of his newfound fans. FBRN volunteers, such as the aforementioned Bruno, as well as Grace, Kermit, Puppy, and Lola spent the weekend giving festival-goers “French kisses” for donations.
With over 140 French bulldogs currently in foster homes across the U.S. and Canada, and with veterinary bills exceeding $25,000 a month, FBRN needs all of the help it can get! Please visit FrenchBulldogRescue.org and lend a helping hand to these delightful littlebouledogues français.
