What is more bubbly and feminine that a sweet sweet glass of pink lemonade? Well we can’t think of anything but maybe the doggo version!
Our girl Pink Lemonade (aka Pinky or Pinky Pops to her Foster Ma & Pa) is the quintessential bubbly french bulldog – loves the sun (quite the sun-piglet), loves making friends and LOVES to eat. Her fizzy little personality shines so bright and she is just an absolute joy to be around and hang with.
Pinky has grown up in a household full of fur siblings big and small, different breeds and different ages. This girl love to play, so we’d be looking for a home with another dog for her to bounce off and get up to all kinds of puppy mischief. This lil girl loves to zoom and explore, but she also loves to find a spot in the sun for a solar recharge.
Pink Lemonade has been in the care of Life of Pikelet since she was a wee drop of bubbles at hours old. Born with a full cleft palate (hard and soft), she has managed to thrive and grow into one of the prettiest little french bulldog girls you’ve ever seen. Her cleft doesn’t mean she needs a lot of additional care, but her future family must be willing to learn about caring for a dog with a cleft palate, and must be committed to maintaining a diet suitable for her. Her forever family must also have done their research on caring for Frenchies – for as cute as they are, their little folds, wrinkles and ears need to be cleaned regularly and sometimes they can grow into *loveable* jerks who are often stubborn and nonchalant about the requests of their human slaves.
If you haven’t noticed from her supermodel photo shoot (where she really needed Pikelet to show her how to work the camera), Pink Lemonade is the most gorgeous colour of lilac, but she doesn’t play to her princess markings – she is as rough and tumble as they come and can often be found playing biteyface with her bulldog foster brother.
Pinky is a very quick learner (especially where food is involved) and while she isn’t quite toilet trained yet (it’s a frenchie thing), it won’t take much to get her straight into the swing of things with some good food reward training.
BEFORE you read Pink Lemonade’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. Pinky 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 she is going to be set up for success in her new home.
– Pink Lemonade’s new family must be committed to ongoing training to ensure she grows to be the best doggo she can be. Growing up in rural Victoria means the hustle and bustle of city life will be something Pink Lemonade needs to slowly get used too.
– An active doggy pal are a must for this little lady. She absolutely loves to play with her foster siblings, so a home with another dog is an absolute must.
– A specific balanced, healthy diet is very important for Pink Lemonade to ensure her digestive and cleft health.
– Pink Lemonade must be truly part of the family and that means access inside as she pleases #couchplease (no being locked out in the backyard)
Non deal breakers:
– Pink Lemonade loves to explore her big country yard, but we know that not everyone has that kind of space. Someone who has a yard, or can take her for daily walks to the park so she can sniff and explore would be ideal.
– Pink Lemonade has a cleft palate, and while this doesn’t really effect her day to day, it can cause issues if her forever family isn’t aware of the do’s and don’ts of having a cleft pup. Pink Lemonade currently eats kibble, but a raw diet is off the table as it poses too much of a risk of getting stuck. The good news is that she can drink like any regular doggo.
– Being a French Bulldog, Pink Lemonade can be prone to skin conditions such as yeast overgrowth in her ears, and in her folds. Getting her into a regular bathing routine where her face folds and ears are cleaned will help her stay comfortable.
