You know you have officially made it when you have your very own, personal bathroom attendant… and here's your chance to adopt him. Biden takes his companionship duties very seriously, and is happiest when he is by your side. This little pipsqueak was surrendered to FBRN for his own safety and well being when another resident dog took to bullying him when he went near the people in the home. Poor Biden! Near his people is his favorite place to be!
Biden is a mellow, submissive, laid-back Frenchie. He loves a nice stroll around the neighborhood at a leisurely pace. While he is excitable in short bursts, he tends to prefer lounging around, and asking for belly rubs. He is housebroken, and obeys simple commands such as, come, sit, and stay.
Although Biden is relatively healthy, he is allergic to a number of things (including cats and birds, so there should be neither in his forever home), and his skin and ears must be meticulously cared for.
Because of his history of being bullied by a larger, more dominant dog, Biden would feel most comfortable as an only dog, or with small, polite housemates. Even then, there is a limit to how much he will interact with his canine companions. Once Biden has had his fill of playtime, he will remove himself from the situation, and does not enjoy being pushed to interact. He is far more people-oriented, and would rather snuggle with his humans. Another consideration is that Biden does not like to share food or treats with other dogs. He should be fed separately, and not given the opportunity to pilfer other dogs' cookies. Leashed walks are his preferred mode of exercise over roaming loose in a yard because on leash walks, you guessed it, he is literally attached to his person.
Biden would love it if he had someone home with him all day, but he would consider letting you go to work as long as you arrange to be home or to hire a dog walker for a mid-day walk, cuddle and snack. Another option, if you have a quiet, calm office that allows dogs, is that he could accompany you to work. He is not comfortable around loud noises, though, so if you are an airplane mechanic, construction worker or Formula One driver, this would not be the best option.
Foster Mom says, "Biden is an absolute joy to have in our household. He is one of the most mellow, laid-back Frenchies I’ve ever met. He is an absolute Velcro-dog who will go anywhere with the human he makes his connection with – and I mean EVERYWHERE, including the bathroom and even will wait for you while you are in the shower, so be prepared to have a little guy under your feet at all times, haha!"
Biden is being fostered in the DC area. FBRN does not ship dogs as cargo. Adopters are expected to pick up their dogs from their foster family. Most adopters opt to drive to pick up their new family member, but because Biden weighs less than 20 lbs, he may be able to fly home in the cabin of an aircraft.
FBRN dogs are in foster care in people's private homes. For the foster families' safety, we do not disclose specific locations, and we don't set up meet and greets prior to applications. For detailed information about the dogs in our care, please read the extensive bios on each dog.
