Lost or stolen French Bulldog Guelph Ontario

Another Missing French Bulldog – Guelph Ontario Area

Another lost or stolen French Bulldog has been reported, this one in the Guelph Ontario area.

Mikey is a neutered pied (black and white, to the average person) French Bulldog. He went missing on March 15th, from the area of Kingsmill Avenue & Eramosa River in Guelph Ontario. He was wearing a blue harness – there is no word on whether or not he is microchipped. His owner believes he may have crossed over the river to play with other people or dogs.

There is a reward for his return.

If you spot him, please call Deb at (519) 763-6166

Poutine went missing from the fenced yard of his home on Castlederg Sideroad, which is near Highway 50 on the border of Caledon and Bolton.

Poutine was bred by our friend Richard Rockford, of Aristocrafts French Bulldogs. He is a son of Richard’s lovely French Bulldog boy, Baxter, who tragically died last year due to veterinary error. As you imagine, Richard and Ewa, along with Poutine’s owner, are devastated.

Please share – let’s bring Poutine home!


Animal Control Greenville, SC – Lose Your Dog, Get a Lecture

When Joe, Elise Jerozal’s Parson Terrier, went missing, her mom Katie  Jerozal knew all of the steps to follow to bring home a lost pet. She put up flyers, canvassed the neighbourhood, posted messages on Facebook, and even posted a video to Youtube featuring Elise asking for help in bringing Joe home.

It’s no surprise Katie knew what to do – after all, she’s got an awful lot of experience with dogs. Katie’s mother showed dogs, and Katie herself competed in Junior Handling, taking her Pug to Westminster one year to as one of the top Junior handlers in the country. Part of the reason Katie bought Joe for Elise was so that Elise could show him in Juniors, and possibly train him for the obedience ring. Getting Elise into showing would make show dogs a third generation family tradition – Katie didn’t stop her involvement  with show dogs when she outgrew Juniors. She’s now a small scale, ethical breeder of French Bulldogs, owning a handful of top winning Frenchies, including a Best in Show and Best in Specialty show winning boy she still proudly talks about on her Lucida French Bulldogs website.

It’s Katie’s website that caused problems when she got in touch with Greenville Animal Control to report Joe as a missing pet.

Katie sent Greenville Animal Control a precise, well detailed email regarding Joe, via their website –

Joe is a 1 year old Russell Terrier. he was bought for my daughters 7th birthday to do obedience with. He was last seen in our yard where, we think, he was taken.
He was mostly white with brown markings
He went missing last night around 8 pm from (address redacted) ln Taylors SC
Katie got back an email asking her to clarify that Joe was missing from Greenville, to which she responded in the affirmative. The next response she got was this –

I noticed that you breed Frenchies. Have you ever thought of discontinuing that? There are cancers associated with breeding (mammary tumors, testicular cancer, etc.) that result from not spaying and neutering. Also, Frenchies, like any other breed, end up in shelters.

I would imagine that if you love your Frenchies, you would not want them or their offspring to be in harms way.



No suggestions on how to find Joe. No confirmation that someone would check the shelter to make sure Joe hadn’t been turned in. Instead, all Katie got was a lecture on how her insistence on having intact dogs (intact dogs she was BREEDING!) was the reason that dogs die of cancer and end up in animal shelters.

Did this idiotic and heartless response come from some well meaning but poorly trained shelter volunteer?

Nope. It came from –

Susan Bufano
Community Relations Coordinator

Greenville, SC 29609
(864) 467-3986
(864) 467-3294 Fax

Community Relations Coordinator! Holy crap! Talk about a lack of essential job skills. I’m going out on a limb here, but I’d think that a large part of the job description of a Community Relations Coordinator for Animal Control involves actual public relations skills, the kind that support community members, instead of alienating them.

Of course, this is all on top of the fact that Susan is spouting the same tired and inaccurate myths about how keeping dogs intact is some sort of automatic cancerous death sentence (by this reasoning, I’m a little bit surprised that Susan didn’t also suggest Katie should look into getting Elise a hysterectomy before it’s too late, since ‘intact’ women could also grow up to get reproductive cancers). Her insinuation seems to be that Katie is some sort of irresponsible jerk who lets her dogs run around Greenville willy-nilly, clogging up the Animal Control shelters and generally forcing well meaning people like Susan to kill them against her will.


Look, I get the impression that Greenville AC is one of the better run municipal shelters. They have a vigorous volunteer program, they offer Animal Care Summer Camps for kids, and they offer low cost veterinary services, microchipping and spay neuter clinics. I understand that Susan’s intentions might have been good, but she’s letting her own personal agenda (her personal Facebook page talks a lot about animal rights and her veganism) get in the way of servicing her community – the very job her title conveys she is meant to be filling.

If you want to be the ‘first place’ people go when their pet is lost and missing, please start doing a better job of being supportive, instead of misguidedly judgmental. Greenville AC made an already traumatic time for Katie’s family even worse, by failing to support her in any way that could help to bring Joe home.


Joe is home! As Katie tells us via Facebook:

‘we were out handing out flyer to everyone in our neighborhood. I was cutting through a yard and I heard him bark. Elise ran into the yard and he was on an enclosed deck. How she didn’t see our flyers is odd. They weren’t home so we took him and left a thank you note’

Good news, and good job, Katie!


Lost/Stolen French Bulldog, Queens NY

This is a missing or stolen French Bulldog alert, for the Queens, New York area. Please cross post and/or re tweet

Please note: This is not my girl, who is also named “Butters”.

updated with a note from Butters’ owner:

my dog has been stolen. I have two frenchies, one male, one female..both under a year old. My male was stolen on Saturday, May 28th 2011 between the times of 3:00pm-6:30pm. I have notified the police but they say that if I did not see a specific person stealing my dog, no report will be filed. I am sure he did not run away because my house is gated and he has grown too big to slip between the gates.

Lost French Bulldog, Marlborough, MA

Update! Omar is home. News from Gale:


OMAR FOUND – Thank you everyone. Omar was found a couple of blocks from the house by a friendly school bus driver. She then asked people if they knew him and was told about the sign in front of my house. She had him safe and sound and came to see me. I have since retrieved him.

The only thing we can think happened is he followed my son out of the yard when he emptied the poop barrel and he never saw him. Inspection of our fence and potential ways out netted no clues and the other two dogs in the yard with him were still there.

That’s two happy endings for me this week. I think I have my share now. God, my heart stopped when he didn’t come in with the others.

Thanks for rallying your networks.
