Dinah was a returned adoptee whose increasing guarding behavior made her owners uncomfortable.
Dinah is ready to find the perfect forever home! Dinah's perfect day consists of lying by her favorite person and getting belly rubs all day long. Are you looking for a sweet girl to be one your one and only pet? Dinah could be the one for you!
Dinah is the kind of girl who would be great living with a retired person that enjoys spending their days lounging at home. She would also do well with a person that works from home. The most important thing that Dinah needs in her new home is to be the only pet. Miss D likes to be the center of attention and she can get very protective of her favorite person. So, she can only live in a home where she is the only pet. Dinah is what we call a Velcro Frenchie; she likes to be right next to her favorite person. When she is not focused on being with her favorite person, she likes to chew on Nylabones.
Dinah has separation anxiety and takes Prozac daily. Her new family will need to continue this treatment as well as continue her raw diet and supplements which include omega-3's, multi vitamins, and probiotics. Dinah gets anxious when not right with her person. She’s very sweet with just one person, but if another person approaches her with her favorite person, she growls. Dinah is not high energy and she would love to spend her days on the couch with a retired person that doesn’t have frequent visitors and stays home most of the time. She will not be placed in a home with children or that has frequent visitors who are children. During her slow introduction period in her foster home, Dinah got loose from her gated area and gave a serious bite that required a couple of stitches to one of the resident dogs. Previously, she had lived harmoniously with dogs in her foster and adoptive home.
Dinah is slightly crate trained. She will go into the crate, but she really doesn't like it too much. She would prefer to be right next to her favorite person instead.
The perfect home for Dinah is most likely with a single, retired person or someone who works from home without frequent visitors. Her new home cannot have other dogs. Her new owners can live in an apartment or a home with or without a fenced yard. An apartment might be ok if she is not left home alone, but she whines & cries when left alone. Someone home most of the time would be ideal.
Dinah enjoys car rides but due to her resource guarding, she cannot fly on a plane.
Dinah's foster mom has this to share about her: "Dinah is very loving to her person. She loves a good belly rub and will expose the belly at the slightest movement of your hand toward her belly. I really hope there is a retired person or someone who works from home that is a homebody and is looking for a companion to spend some couch-time with, without any other dogs or pets. She wants to be her person’s one and only."
If you would like to adopt Dinah, be prepared to travel. Dinah is being fostered in TENNESSEE and will not be shipped.
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.
Dinah has several allergies, including storage mites, and must remain on a raw diet and the supplements she's now taking. She should have regular medicated baths.
Dinah also has separation anxiety and is dog reactive and must remain on daily Prozac. She is a resource guarder so must never be around children, and she must remain an only dog. She must be monitored during feeding and when toys are present. Continued training is required to address her triggers.
Dinah, wishing you the best!! From your fellow Okies - Jesse, Katie, Nacho the Frenchie and Sherpa Moving and Storage
I pray that you can find her the perfect home.Shana L Horton
