If you follow me on Instagram @syd.hoff you will know I got a french bulldog. Check out my YouTube video (here) for a little introduction to Gary.
I've been getting a lot of questions about Gary and where exactly I got him. If you watch my YouTube video you will know my boyfriend and I only wanted a frenchie. We've been obsessed with them forever. After checking every Humane Society around me for over a year I realized there were no frenchies available. I decided to do some research on breeders and stayed far away from Kijiji as I've heard horror stories. I looked into a couple of breeders, but there was only one breeder I really followed for over a year. I knew I wanted a frenchie but wasn't sure when exactly I was ready so I just followed closely to the Royal Frenchies website. I even bookmarked the page and would legitmely click on their website everyday. I watched numerous litters of puppies come and go, but I patiently waited until it was the right time for me. What I loved about this breeder was being able to look up dogs that had been sold in the past. That felt reassuring because sometimes you never know what you are getting into with breeders. What was even better was being able to follow them on Instagram @royalfrenchies.ca this allowed me to see other dogs tagged in her page that have been adopted. I could look into them and see how the dog and owners were dealing with their frenchie. I saw nothing but positive comments and feedback from my research. Royal Frenchies are located in Hamilton, so it wasn't too far for me to travel. Karen the owner is so sweet and helpful. When I wanted some additional video and photos of Gary she sent them over right away. Shawn and I are absolutely in love with Gary and so far have had no complaints (fingers crossed).
I will update you soon with how training is going and some of my favourite products.
