Bonjour, future fur-parents! Allow us to introduce you to the delightful Primrose Oil, a spirited 11-month-old French Bulldog with a heart as big as her Frenchie attitude. Despite her petite frame, Prim is a pocket rocket ready to conquer the world with her zest for life. Primrose Oil is a special little lady who has conquered the challenge of mild Hydrocephalus like a true champion. Thanks to an early diagnosis and a tailored medical protocol, this condition is just a tiny blip on her radar. She faces each day with a wagging tail and a determination to embrace life to the fullest.
Prim is not your average lapdog; she’s a fearless explorer with an adventurous spirit, though be prepared that she would rather be carried in your arms than to use her precious lil paws. Whether it’s facing off with dogs twice her size, charming cats, or conquering the great outdoors, Primrose Oil is always ready for the next big adventure. She may be small, but her heart is as mighty as they come. Primrose Oil is a social butterfly, thriving on love and companionship and a Netflix subscription so she can chill on the sofa. She enjoys making new friends, be they human or furry, and her charming personality will quickly win over any heart. When it comes to playtime, Prim loves a good game of “bitey face” — a playful reminder that she’s both sweet and spirited.
Are you ready to open your heart and home to this lovable little Frenchie? We are on the lookout for a committed and caring family who will embrace Primrose Oil as a cherished member of the pack. Daily cuddles, playful adventures, and a sprinkle of love are all she needs to thrive. Her medical needs are minimal, but the love and joy she’ll bring are immeasurable.
What’s on Prim’s wishlist for a fur-ever home? A family committed to making her the star of their daily show! She might enjoy a bit of pampering, but she’s not afraid to get her teeny toe beans dirty in the name of fun and frolic. Primrose’s foster family have done a stellar job, and now Prim is ready to find her happily ever after.
BEFORE you read Prims 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 doggo. Primrose Oil 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 her foster family can feel assured that she is going to be set up for success in her new home.
– Premium diet! We are a balanced raw diet advocating rescue. On adoption of Primrose we will provide a break down on what Prim’s current diet is and what we recommend moving forward.
– Prim is on a strict daily medical protocol for her mild hydrocephalus. It is at the highest importance to us that potential adopters research Hydrocephalus and understand that the advice we give needs to be followed, this is something we take very seriously to ensure that Prim lives a long and healthy life.
– Daily walks/plays/adventures out of the house! It is not negotiable, Primrose is a social butterfly who will become stir crazy or loose confidence without at least one daily outing and some socialising.
– French Bulldogs are not bread for their amazing sinus and breathing qualities, so for this reason it would be neglectful for any owner of a flat faced baby (like a frenchie, pug, bulldog etc) to house and have sleep outside in a backyard. These dogs MUST be inside dogs. Primrose will need a home with inside access at all times and outside access for toileting, playing and enjoying the sunshine.
Non deal breakers:
– While it would be fantastic to find a family for Prim that has a second (or even third or forth family dog), we think this little pocket of fun could be ok as an only dog or one of a couple.
– Further professional training, Prim is pretty good with general French Bulldog manners (if there is such a thing), like a fair amount of Frenchies, Prim is hit and miss with her toileting habits. She can spend all day outside and have many toilet breaks, only to come into the house just to pee straight on the carpet. Her foster family are incredibly experienced and have been working hard on training her to be better with this behaviour. It’s really up to Prim’s future forever family if they are strict on this sort of thing, if so, then further training is something to look into.
As mentioned, Primrose Oil has a very mild condition of Hydrocephalus. This has been confirmed with veterinarian imaging when she first arrived into rescue care. Typically, we start a daily medical protocol for all our hydro pups, Primrose was no different. Her daily medication is once a day and is very inexpensive, it helps to cease any further build up of build around her brain. Unlike most hydro pups, you wouldn’t guess Prim has anything wrong with her, with exception to a slight head tilt (suspected from the fluid having been built up more on one side). Because of her Hydrocephalus we have held off desexing Prim until after her first heat cycle and we can do testing to confirm she will survive under anesthesia.
