PAELLA – adopted

Melbourne, Victoria
French Bulldog • 13 weeks • Female

Do you like your paella a little bit … SPICY? Well, look no further – Miss Paella is the girl for you. This is one very special girl and she will fill your heart with joy.

An expert stick finder, Paella is a very typical, high energy Frenchie. She has had her foster family in absolute stitches as she returns from her backyard adventure with leaves or twigs and parades them through the house before she gets tackled by one of her foster siblings. She’s an expert at the swooping attack – she runs full tilt at her siblings to pounce on them and then bounce off again.

Paella was born with a spinal abnormality and she is unable to control her bowels or bladder. She doesn’t know this though and she will run, and run and play until she finds something soft enough to fall asleep on. She will need regular baths and nappies to keep her clean and comfortable thoughtout her life.


BEFORE  you read Paella’s adoption criteria it is extremely important that potential adopters give great thought and communicate in their adoption application as to what their home set up and routine plan is for the first few weeks/months if they are the successful adopter of this most precious pupper. Paella cannot be settled in over just a weekend and then left on a Monday home alone while you return to work… There needs to be a plan outlined so that his foster family can feel assured he is going to be set up for success in his new home.



Deal breakers:

– Paella has grown up with many foster siblings and is used to their constant companionship so a home with a  friend or 2 is preferred.

– Paella’s new family must be committed to ongoing training to ensure she grows to be the best doggo she can be.

– Caring for Paella’s incontinence will be a lifelong task for her new family.

– Daily walks and outings are a must, a girl must keep up with the neighbourhood gossip.

– A specific balanced, healthy diet is very important for Paella to ensure her digestive health.

– Paella must be truly part of the family and that means access inside as she pleases.

– The lucky adoptive family of Paella will need to be ready to keep in regular touch with her foster mama at Life of Pikelet throughout the duration of her life.

Non deal breakers:

A home in Victoria is preferred however interstate applicants will be considered, potential forever families would need to come to HQ for a meet and greet



– Paella has a spinal abnormality called Spina Bifida which is why she can’t regulate her bladder and bowels on her own. At times she also suffers a prolapsed rectum which might be assisted by surgery in the future. Paella will need a forever family that understands and is capable of changing doggo nappies and happy to give her a regular daily bath.
