Drogo may only have one eye but he has clearly seen his way to the available page! This handsome pup was surrendered by a full-time working mom who had taken him in to help out his original overwhelmed owner. Turns out Drogo had a few more issues than the busy Good Sam could handle. Now that most of his problemd have been conquered, Drogo is ready for his many fans to apply and show him who has what it takes to be his forever family!
Despite having his left eye removed, Drogo is a happy camper with tons of energy (he is a puppy after all). Having one eye definitely hasn't slowed him down. He is constantly following his foster family around trying to initiate a good play session. He lives with a 3-year-old human foster sister and does really well with her, but future adopters with little ones will need to manage energy levels because an over-excited young Frenchie plus an over-excited small human can result in occasional, accidental knockdowns. Families with small children should judge whether their kids are steady on their pegs: nobody wants to see a toddler get a concussion.
Drogo also gets along with the foster cat and dogs (and his original home had ferrets too!). He does have a dominant nature so all introductions need to be slow and careful. Tell us how you have successfully introduced a new pup to current dog(s) and Drogo will be sure to put a star next to your application. And be ready for some rough, rowdy and vocal play once he determines a dog is a compatible playmate. While Drogo definitely loves to romp around, he also likes to relax from time to time on the couch or bed with his humans.
Potty training is a work in progress. Drogo is crated during the day to prevent accidents in the house and is improving with frequent potty breaks. However, he is what a coprologist might categorize as a "sneaky pooper." His adopter will need to make sure (ie. visualize) he goes poop outside because he likes to take his time to scope out the perfect spot. If you haven't actually seen him poop outside, you might find a hidden present inside the house. Due to his prolonged potty practices, a fenced yard is preferred.
Drogo could be integrated into many different types of housing situations but be forewarned, he loudly sings a Frenchie "song of his people" from inside his crate announcing his family's arrival home. If you are not familiar with this little ditty, thin walls and close neighbors may not be ideal. Otherwise, he is relatively quiet.
Potential adopters of this young pup should be prepared to supply Drogo with lots of toys. He especially loves squeakies and ropes. He is a very busy little bee and always wants to be in the middle of the action, so a family dedicated to spending as much time with him as possible will be at the top of his list. If you need to go to work to support his toy habit, he will definitely appreciate one or two potty/play breaks during the day. But if you work on his obedience and harness his energy, he could be a great office dog in the future.
Drogo's foster family has nothing but awesome things to say about him, "This little guy has become such a wonderful, energetic part of our family. Our daughter loves to play with him so much! He has a fun and quirky personality and has done great even though he lost an eye. He loves to "sing" to us when we get home which has definitely become a laughable highlight of the day."
We all know how popular adorable Frenchie puppies are so don't let his good looks sway you into a hasty decision. His new family should be dedicated to continuing his potty training progress along with guiding him into becoming a well-mannered canine companion. Drogo thanks you for your consideration with a one-eyed wink but, before you submit you application, you should be prepared to drive or fly to Texas because 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.
Neuter and enucleation (removal) of Drogo’s left eye were performed in May. Potty training is a work in progress. Drogo can be high-energy, so interactions between him and little kids should be monitored for knock-downs.
We hope he's on the mend. Simon Keast
