Similar to the French pastry, FBRN’s Brioche is light and fluffy! She is an adorable little fluff of cream sweetness who weighs just 18 pounds and she is ready to move into her forever home. Brioche was tearfully surrendered when her family moved to another state to care for their mother. Unfortunately, Brioche did not get along with their mother’s cats and Brioche found herself in foster care. FBRN is happy to help and we know that a wonderful forever home is out there for this adorable little girl.
Brioche is a laid-back and gentle Frenchie. She is more of a loafer and she walks very well on leash, though she doesn’t need much exercise. She is in good health, but has an elongated soft palate. This means that it takes her longer to eat, she may cough and gag when eating, and she can make some awful noises while eating! Thankfully, her elongated soft palate doesn’t seem to affect her during exercise or play time.
While in foster care, Brioche had a mast cell tumor removed. Mast cell tumors are a common form of skin cancer in dogs and they tend to reoccur. An adoptive family who knows what to look for would be a plus! Brioche has allergies that will require special food and daily medication. Potential adopters would need to continue with this daily routine and also keep an eye out for any skin lumps or bumps which could indicate another mast cell tumor.
Cats are definitely a no-go in Brioche’s forever home. Brioche gets along well with children and bows down when approached by the 7 & 9 year old children who visit her foster home. Brioche is quite submissive with people, but she tries to dominate other dogs.
Brioche can cohabitate with other dogs, but she must be closely monitored as she is food, toy and bed aggressive. A family with a non-dominant dog who has prior experience with this type of behavior would certainly be considered, but we think that Brioche would prefer a home where she can be the only pet.
Brioche is a smart girl who knows sit, come, stay, and shake. She is housebroken, but doesn’t signal when she needs to go out. Therefore regular potty breaks would be required. Brioche is crate trained and sleeps in her crate at night. Unfortunately, she cannot sleep in bed with her people – one of her many allergies is to human epithelia cells. She is also allergic to tobacco and will require a non-smoking forever home.
Brioche would do well in any type of home environment (city, country, suburb). She is a very quiet dog who doesn’t need much exercise so an apartment would be just fine. No cats and preferably no other small animals (especially birds since Brioche is allergic). Children who are old enough to be gentle with a small dog would be great, and a family who has Frenchie experience would be awesome! Since Brioche is relaxed and content when left alone, she doesn’t need a person who can be home with her all day. However, a mid-day potty break is required.
Brioche would be a great office companion providing she has no access to other dogs at the office. She can entertain herself and loves naps, car rides, chewing Nylabones and playing with stuffed toys. Here’s a few things Bri’s foster mom wants you to know, “Brioche is such a love. She has easily adapted to our foster home. She is gentle, quiet, very obedient and willing to please. She likes to follow me around and lie near me. She loves to be rubbed and loved on. She skips when she runs which is quite endearing. She is very easy to have around and is not demanding. We love her, she is easy to love.”
Who doesn’t need a tiny little bundle of love in their life! If you think you and your family would be a great fit for Brioche, please submit an application today and tell us why you’d be the perfect match.
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.
FBRN does not ship dogs as cargo. Except in rare or unusual cases, adopters are expected to pick up their dogs from their foster family. In rare or unusual cases, FBRN may be able to assist in transporting a dog to a volunteer near the adopter's home, but the expense of transporting the dog must be the responsibility of the adopting party.
