Get ready to fall in love; gorgeous, sweet, full-figured Diane is available for adoption!
Because Diane was surrendered due to her less-than-ladylike behavior with the cats in her former home, not to mention the fact that she's allergic to them, no kitties allowed! That's about it, as far as restrictions, though. "Adaptable" is her middle name! This happy girl gets along with kids, adults and most dogs, doesn't require a fenced yard, is housebroken, and would be content in just about any living situation as long as she didn't have to spend too much time in a crate. They seem to make her a little anxious. Foster dad reports that she would be fine left uncrated in the home if her person works a 9-5 or 8 hour job, and could even accompany mom or dad to the workplace if dogs are allowed. She would be delighted to impress co-workers with her excellent "sit" and "roll over" skills, engage them in a game of tug-of-war with a stuffie, and then quietly gnaw on an antler when everybody needs to… you know… get back to work.
Diane does have the all-too-common Frenchie allergies, including one to storage mites, but Apoquel and a raw diet seem to be just the ticket to keep the itchies in check. Due to her roly-poly physique she doesn't have the endurance of a marathon runner, but she loves to play tug of war, and enjoys a good walk around the block. Diane does still have some pounds to shed. This, combined with her food allergies, means that her food intake will need to be carefully controlled and monitored, especially if there are small children in the home. She can be a little dominant with other dogs when playing with toys, so, again, careful supervision should be exercised with other dogs and with small children in these situations.
Foster dad says, "Diane is a sweet and playful girl. Though she doesn't have much endurance because of her weight, she has a good amount of energy and is always willing to play. In general, she loves being with people. Whether playing tug of war, going on walks, or just sitting on the couch by your side; she is just happy to be spending time with you."
If there is a spot on your couch for fabulous, fluffy Diane, fill out an application and prepare for a road trip to the windy shores of Lake Michigan. Diane is too large to fit under the seat in the passenger compartment of an aircraft, and 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.
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.
Diane, We are rooting for you pretty girl! with love, Bruce, Courtney and Ellie

Diane, you are one beautiful cuddle bug! Honestly, I'm not sure how I'd feel or react with 5 cats around me either! Can't wait till you make it to the available page to find your forever home! - Katy, Danny, and Doug
