Collection: Chase, Minnie, + Jack | A&E IVDD French Bulldog Rescue

These warriors don't let special needs slow them down.

As any breed grows in popularity, we can expect to see an increase in the number of dogs with genetic disorders. Intervertebral Disc Disease (IVDD), a disorder in which a herniated disc affects the spinal cord and causes temporary or permanent paralysis, is commonly seen in French Bulldogs. 

A&E IVDD French Bulldog Rescue specifically cares for these dogs, working closely with a neurologist to develop individualized treatment plans that may include spinal surgery, physical therapy, laser treatment, acupuncture, and wheelchair use. While A&E does accept owner and breeder surrenders, they also provide educational resources to both owners and breeders, helping to prevent owner surrenders and keep dogs in their loving homes. They network with organizations across the country to help successfully place dogs with IVDD in homes.

Chase, Minnie, and Jack are all in foster care with A&E. All three wear diapers, use wheelchairs, enjoy rides in a stroller, and are loved beyond words. They prove that dogs with IVDD are not only manageable, but able to thrive and live a high quality life.

20% of sales from this limited edition collection will be donated to A&E IVDD French Bulldog Rescue. Available through April 18.
