“Treatibles has worked wonders in helping support better behavior in this handsome little guy [Dillard]. He is now able to hang out with his dog foster siblings, go for walks without aggression, meet new people, give and receive love with his foster mom, and be calmer and more easy going. He is a completely different dog than when he first came into foster care – thanks to the calming help of Treatibles.”
Founded in 2001, French Bulldog Rescue Network (FBRN) rescues, rehabilitates and re-homes French Bulldogs in need from commercial breeding kennels, import brokers, public shelters, private rescue groups, owners and Good Samaritans from all around the USA and Canada.
According to Andrea Francheville, who serves on the organization’s Board of Directors as well as their Social Media Coordinator, FBRN is comprised solely of volunteers. Many foster and nurture the rescued dogs in their homes, while others are involved in transporting surrendered dogs. Behind the scenes, contributions include: written content for the website, organization of intake process and veterinary care, supervision of foster homes, public education during exhibitions, fundraising and training.
FBRN does a wonderful job sharing information about French Bulldog behavior, health, enrichment and more on their website, Frenchbulldogrescue.org.
“Our goal is to place healthy and happy French Bulldogs into forever homes,” stated Andrea.
Sydney D., one of FBRN’s foster parents, shares the story of Dillard.
“When Dillard came into foster care, he was described as crate, dog and food aggressive, and that he didn’t like most people. Yikes, he was a handful,” Sydney proclaimed. “In his new foster home, it became clear that he’d become territorial over his space.”
While working with Dillard to reinforce good behavior by using lots of positive praise, Sydney tried Treatibles to reduce his anxiety and help him be calmer and accepting of new experiences.
“Treatibles has worked wonders in helping support better behavior in this handsome little guy. He is now able to hang out with his dog foster siblings, go for walks without aggression, meet new people, give and receive love with his foster mom, and be calmer and more easy going. He is a completely different dog than when he first came into foster care – and a lot of that change is thanks to the calming help of Treatibles,” affirmed Sydney.
