Django is looking for his forever family! Please read on to see if he’s a match for you. Django wasn’t getting along with the English Bulldog in his former home and to show his displeasure, he was frequently marking “his” territory. He was sadly surrendered by his former family after their attempts to remedy the situation were unsuccessful.
After settling into foster care, Django’s dosage of Prozac was slowly reduced. We’re happy to report that he no longer requires this medication. Django might still be a bit wary of being left alone, but he loves the company of his foster fur-siblings and has done well without this medication. Speaking of medication, Django takes Apoquel and also daily supplements for his allergies. He must also continue eating his current Canine Caviar diet. Regular medicated baths are also part of the routine! All of these things keep his allergies under control and help to keep his coat so silky and smooth. Django is a handsome boy who needs a little extra pampering!
Django has IBD and this condition must be closely monitored. His GI system is, shall we way, sensitive; which can cause loose stools which necessitate a “rear end cleaning”. Like many Frenchies, Django has stenotic nares and must be monitored in warmer weather. This also makes him sounds like he’s snoring, even while he’s awake!
Django loves meeting new people and does great with children. He should be closely monitored when playing because he can get excited and nibble at tiny hands or fingers that get in the way of the toy Django is trying to get. Django is very good with cats. As for dogs, he prefers smaller companions. Django LOVES the Chihuahua in his foster home, but mostly ignores the female Frenchie who is about 5 pounds bigger than he is. While Django loves a quick zoom around the yard with his Chihuahua buddy, he can also occupy himself with an antler or Nylabone. Django is not a resource guarder and has shown no signs of food or toy guarding.
Although he is housebroken, Django makes no sound or gesture to indicate he must go out, so if someone is not home to see him sitting at the door, he will not hesitate to do his business inside. Outdoors, Django requires privacy do his business. He will not go while leashed. Thus, a fenced yard is a must in his forever home.
We would love to see Django in an experienced Frenchie home where he has constant companionship. A person who can be home all day would be ideal, but Django would do okay with a mid-day break. A smaller dog who is playful would be fantastic! And a fenced yard where Django can have the privacy he needs to do his business. Because of all of his allergies and propensity to nibble fingers, Django should not be in a home with small children who might inadvertently give him food he shouldn’t have.
Django would make a great office companion, but because he is a skilled stealth pooper (and doesn’t make a lot of noise when signaling that he needs to go out), he would need to be closely watched.
Here’s a few words from Django’s smitten foster mom, “Django is a DOLL! He makes everyone who meets him swoon! He is very sweet. His way of showing that he is really happy is to nibble...Mr. Nibbles is one of his nicknames. I also call him Mango Django, because he is so sweet. And I call him Mr. Stretchy Stretch, because he often stretches out and holds what looks like a yoga pose.”
If you think Django would be your perfect yoga buddy, please apply today! Then get ready to plan a trip to Jersey as FBRN does not ship dogs as cargo. 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.
Django has IBD and his condition must be closely monitored. He has several allergies and to stay comfortable he takes on daily Apoquel, eats his current food, and supplements, and an Omega-3 Pet supplements. He also takes regular medicated baths. Django has a history of skin and ear infections that must be monitored for recurrence.
Like many, many Frenchies, Django has extremely narrow nostrils (stenotic nares) and must be monitored in warm weather. He has a high prey drive and is a danger around cats, birds, or other small animals, so adopters should keep Django and little critters apart.
We are sure you are just as amazing as your name is, Django! Merry Christmas! Love, The Crosleys (Elijah & Emily; Pua - Frenchie; Angus - Staffie)
