“If you have ever been to Tucson, AZ, you should know about Eegee's. They make a signature frozen lemon drink. Well that is what our Eegee is like- a fresh breath of enjoyment and refreshing pleasure. She comes with a lot of energy but knows when to settle down when it is time.
We are thankful for the Good Sam who rescued her. When she arrived at our house she had callouses were she should have had fur on her legs. We have had to teach her how to play. Now she plays a great game of tug of war with a sock but she usually loses since she is such a light weight and gets pulled across the living room. She enjoys carrying her stuffy. She has never been mean to the other dogs and usually gives in to whatever they want. She is a great jumper so be ready if she flies into your lap or up on the sofa from afar. Eegee usually wants to be near her humans as she thrives on attention. Wanting attention along with her goofiness of jumping and hopping in circles has brought many smiles in the short time she has been with us.”
Oh gee—it’s Eegee! This itty bitty Frenchie princess is making her debut on the Available page, and is ready to hop hop hop into a forever home of her very own.

Eegee was purchased from an online ad by a Good Samaritan, who saw her poor condition and worried about where she might end up. This lovely person got Eegee some desperately needed medical attention (including a spay) and then surrendered her to FBRN, so that we could get her into tip-top shape for a lucky adoptive family. Eegee’s primary issue was the dreaded Frenchie itchies, which were causing hair loss and making her generally miserable. We’re happy to say that we’ve gotten those under control with a raw diet and an array of dietary supplements, all of which must remain a part of Eegee’s daily routine to keep her skin healthy and itch-free.

Eegee was named after a restaurant chain in Arizona that is famous for its lemonade, and she has indeed shown herself to be two parts sweet and one part sour! At home, Eegee is an absolute doll, who gets along with every human and dog that she meets. She loves sitting in her person’s lap and getting kisses and belly rubs, and even shares her bones with her canine foster sibling, Lady and the Tramp style. Eegee’s foster mom describes her as a happy camper who molds into whatever the situation might be—just a mellow, fantastic little girl. On the other end of the spectrum, we have Eegee, Slayer of Poultry, who got her tiny self over a four-foot chain link fence and into the chicken coop, where she dispatched a few of the residents to that great nesting box in the sky. Due to this high prey drive, Eegee cannot be placed into a home with cats, birds, or any other type of small animal outside the canine family, and her new family must ensure that she does not get access to such critters.

Eegee is crate-trained, leash-trained, and does a pretty good job remembering to go potty outside, with the occasional accident now and again. (“Oops,” says Eegee.) She would make a perfect office dog, due to her mellow nature, although it might be hard to get those expense reports done when Eegee is asking for a belly rub with those big, expressive eyes. Since Eegee loves her people so much, she would ideally have someone around all day to keep her company, but she understands if you need to go to work and leave her for a few hours. So long as she gets a midday potty break and some attention, all is forgiven.

Eegee’s foster mom is absolutely smitten with her charge, and says: “If you have ever been to Tucson, AZ, you should know about Eegee's. They make a signature frozen lemon drink. Well that is what our Eegee is like- a fresh breath of enjoyment and refreshing pleasure. She comes with a lot of energy but knows when to settle down when it is time.

So whaddya say? Does Eegee sound like the perfect dog for you? If so, then swipe right by sending us an application to adopt. Just be prepared to travel—Eegee is hopping in circles and dreaming of chicken dinners in Oklahoma 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.

FBRN does not ship dogs as cargo, so adopters are expected to pick up their dogs from their foster family.
