Short Mugs Rescue Squad logoFrench Bull­dogs are lucky to have some very fine res­cue groups ded­i­cated to the breed and we have to admit we have a soft spot for one located here in Texas that serves the Texas, Okla­homa, Louisiana regions: Short Mugs Res­cue Squad. SMRS started up last year and proudly announced this week they have acquired their offi­cial 501c3 sta­tus, mean­ing any dona­tions are now fully tax deductible.

In a short time, SMRS has gone from startup to tak­ing care of some of the hard­est of hard luck cases. Just take a look at Hope and Faith, two Frenchie girls left aban­doned in an Hous­ton apart­ment with no food or water. Both girls are being treated and reha­bil­i­tated for their future, lov­ing home. Hope and Faith.

Not all dogs in their care are this bad. Many are in much bet­ter shape, just need­ing a place to stop off while in tran­sit to a new home. SMRS res­cues and places all types of short-nosed breeds and mixes, but spe­cial­izes in French Bull­dogs. If you live in Texas, Okla­homa, or Louisiana and are think­ing of get­ting a French Bull­dog, Pug, Boston Ter­rier, or Eng­lish Bull­dog, stop by their web­site and see who’s avail­able and who will be avail­able soon. One of those cute mugs may steal your heart.
