Currently, Churchill’s vision is at 90%, but it will diminish over time. There is no timeline according to the eye specialist, but Churchill will eventually lose his vision. Churchill would still be a happy dog should he go blind, but if interested; cataract surgery for dogs does exist when the cataract begins to cause significant functional impairment. This surgery would remove the cloudy lens and replace with a new one. Until then, Churchill only requires daily eye drops which he’s learned to take very well.
Other than his genetic condition, Churchill is a perfectly healthy puppy! He loves being part of a pack and would do great with kids and other dogs. It is unknown if Churchill likes cats so for the safety of our feline friends, we prefer he be placed in a feline free home.
One might be wondering what the best description of Churchill's personality is? Well, he’s definitely more aligned with George Clooney than Winston Churchill. If you’re looking to get compliments and adoration on your walks, then Churchill will be the one to help with that! He can be a bit of a prince who dislikes having to go out in the rain or cold California mornings. His foster mom reports that she has witnessed him go over 12 hours without going out! Churchill doesn't care for sleeping the day away, and would prefer to be with his person all the time. He is definitely a 28 pound lap dog! If you happen to be sharing a couch with Churchill, make sure to man your blanket, as he will slowly move toward you to help rid you of that evil blanket.
Churchill is a pack dog for sure. He loves to be around his people and if you happen to be in a different room, you might hear him whimpering. He is currently a chewer and has special toys for that purpose. His foster mom reports that he also likes cardboard and helped to put his special touch on Christmas presents this year! Churchill loves his walks. In foster care, he’s been going about a mile and a half every other day. This activity helps to curb his chewing. If you aren't so much into your walks, and enjoy your backyard; no worries! Fetch or keep away will work for Churchill’s exercise as well. He's a smart one who knows some basic commands and he could learn so much more.
Churchill would do great with a family. He’s active and would love the attention he’d get in a multiple person household. He would love to have fur-siblings and a securely fenced yard, and without those things, he would need daily walks and trips to the dog park. Churchill would do best with a person who is home all day, especially while he’s in his chewing phase! However, he is crate trained and is currently crated while foster mom runs quick errands. Churchill loves to be toted around and is always happy to be with his person, so we think he would easily adjust to the life of an office dog.
Churchill's foster mom had this to say about him "I have fostered many Frenchies. This is my first puppy. I can see that at 10 months he is still at a young age and has the capacity to blend into a new family and chameleon to its lifestyle. I have made sure to show him many beautiful places and beaches to fill his memories should he ever go blind. He is a very affectionate dog so you have to be ready to receive as well as give thunder hugs, he likes tight hugs. When he's not sunbathing in the back yard, he'll be your own personal mini Sherman tank, always checking in on you.
"I am the French Bulldog, a little Sherman Tank,
If dogs were in the army, I'd hold the highest rank.
My legs are short and curvy, but hey, they touch the ground,
You'll always know I'm coming through by my peculiar sound.
Okay, my face is pushed in, my bat ears are too large,
But if you look into my eyes you'll see that I'm all heart."
- Nancy Simmonds
If you have the perfect pack for Churchill look no further than here. All you need to do is fill out an application for him and be ready to pick him up should you be selected. FBRN does not ship dogs as cargo, so adopters are expected to pick up their dogs from their foster family.
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.
Churchill is an active puppy. Churchill has genetic cataracts and must remain on daily Ketorolac drops. He has impaired vision due to the cataracts and may eventually go blind without cataract surgery. He must be followed up by an ophthalmologist.
