Dinah is looking for someone to spend some time with--in the kitchen or anywhere you choose! Banjo skills unnecessary.
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 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 sometimes likes to chew on Nylabones, but her favorite thing is tummy rubs!
Dinah is a loving, sweet dog, but she has separation anxiety and takes Prozac and Trazedone daily, which seem to be taking the edge off. Her new family must commit to continuing this treatment as well as giving her her raw diet and supplements. Dinah gets anxious when not right with her person.
Dinah is not high energy and she would love to spend her days on the couch with a retired person who doesn’t have frequent visitors and stays home most of the time. She will not be placed in a home with children or where children are frequent visitors. Dinah seems uncomfortable around many dogs, particularly larger ones, but it's hard to know which dog she will take a dislike to, so we'll place her in a home where she is an only dog.
Dinah is ok in the crate with her regimen of Prozac and Trazadone. She would prefer to be right next to her favorite person instead of in the crate, but she can now spend time there. She can also be baby-gated in the kitchen when you are gone. She has done well on the schedule her foster mom has set up and if adopters work outside the home, a mid-day break is necessary to maintain her potty training. Exercise and regular outiings are also helpful in terms of maintaining her potty skills.
Foster mom is looking for someone who is home a lot. If her new owner works from home that would be best, but not absolutely necessary. Frenchie experience is not necessary but willingness to learn and abide by medication, supplement, and raw food prep a must.
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. She may fit into an airplane carrier, but since she's an older girl, and since she loves car rides, a road trip might be a better choice. Dinah is being fostered in Texas 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 and Trazedone. 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
