We know some of you have been patiently waiting for the following announcement: Garebear is now available! At only 6 months old, this striking stunner is all puppy. Even though he is seemingly named after a snail (meow!), his foster likens him to the Energizer bunny. Garebear doesn't really know the meaning of the word nap. He has things to do and wants to do them all! He is always playing with his toys (or socks), chewing on bones (or his blanket), or pestering his Frenchie foster sibling trying to get him to play play play!
While napping might not be his forte, Garebear is a dream in the crate - quiet and content to chew on an antler or bully stick. Potty training is a work in progress but he doesn't have accidents while inside the crate and tries to wait to go outside so we're confident with a consistent schedule, he'll master it in no time. A fenced yard with grass is preferred to aid in his learning. He certainly is a smart pup, already knowing "sit," "touch," and "drop it." He definitely needs some leash work as we may or may not have heard he looks like he's drunk when walking on leash. (We would love to see some video of that!)
There are some limitations to his charm. He can't go to a home with cats and he's not a good fit for young children. Being a puppy, Garebear is still in a nippy phase. He doesn't want to wear his coat? Puppy nip. He doesn't want you to take away his toy? Nip nip. So in addition to a loving and dedicated home, his adopters need to be committed to providing structure, guidance and continued training for "Little Mr. Crazypants." Garebear definitely does need a doggy playmate in his forever home - one who doesn't mind a pushy puppy smacking them in the face with a stuffie or charging at them head on. Another young and active dog would be ideal. A working family would be just fine; we're sure there will be friends or family volunteering to give him a midday break! He could also be a potential office dog if your office is looking to decrease worker productivity but increase employee satisfaction.
Garebear's foster says "Garebear is a confident puppy who is looking for someone to help him become the dog we know he can be. He is smart, squishy, and has the best eyeliner game in town." So if you're looking for a little bit naughty and a little bit nice, look no further. Apply for Garebear and tell us why you would be a great match for this young whippersnapper. Be prepared to travel to New York, by plane, train or automobile, 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.
Garebear is an active puppy and training is a work in progress. Applicants should be prepared to continue house training and working with him to address his puppy biting. Before much longer, it could become dog biting, and no one wants to see that! Applicants with dog training experience should tell us about it in their applications.
