Everyone's favorite magician has won over the crowd and made his way to the available page. Houdini is ready to find the perfect forever home. Houdini first came to FBRN when he was found wandering the streets with Mona Lisa. A Good Samaritan found them, advertised them, and altered them and then called us.
The good news is that Houdini has no health issues at this time. He is a young and healthy boy ready to win over your heart with his magic tricks and Frenchie kisses. Houdini doesn't seem to have any temperament issues either. Houdini hasn't been around cats, so it's a no cat policy for him. When it comes to kids, Houdini is great with them. He does get a little overwhelmed by a good number of children, and when this happens he will tend to retreat to a quiet place. Applicants with kids should tell us about plans they have for setting up a kid-free zone for Houdini. Naturally, adult supervision is key, especially in the first month or two while children and Houdini are getting accustomed to each other.
Houdini doesn't mind other dogs. He has done great with his bestie, Mona Lisa. When he took a trip to the vet's office he didn't act out at the other dogs and appeared to be very chill. As always, slow intros will be the best way to go when introducing Houdini to any other dogs.
The one issue that Houdini does have, is that since he was neutered at 2 he still has a tendency to mark. He loves to mark carpet and near the bedroom doors. He will need to have some guidance and training provided on this issue. Houdini is housebroken, though, and can even pee on command. Houdini is easy going. He prefers to sleep in his home base (his bed) at night. This boy could use some exercise. If there is one thing that Houdini couldn't live without it would be grass! He loves to feel the grass under his feet and will race around like a madman. If he is outside, you can count on him patrolling the perimeter of the yard to make sure all is as it should be.
Houdini isn't a big barker and loves his humans. He usually has his eyes on his humans at all times to make sure they haven't mastered learning disappearing tricks. Houdini can have a shy streak at times, but that will go away once he has settled in. He's polite and will sit at or on your feet. He doesn't mind getting on the couch, but either needs his human to help him out or go with a running start. He is named Houdini for a reason, and that is why he needs a fenced yard. If you have been paying attention to dog news, you know that Frenchies are particularly subject to theft from backyards. We plead with adopters to never leave their Frenchies unattended in yards or playing with kids who can leave gates open.
Houdini would be fine in a house or apartment, but would need to feel the grass under his feet daily. He would do fine with first time Frenchie owners. If you work from home or work away with home, that doesn't really matter to Houdini as long as he gets a potty break. He would make a good office dog as long as there was a bed with his name on it at the office.
Houdini's foster mom had this to say about him: "It is my wish that he find a home were he is the star! He would also be getting a break from his alpha mate so might even blossom. This guy is a gem of a Frenchie! I've never met one so chill and easy going. He is a keeper. Beware you will fall in love!"
If you're ready for your heart to experience true magic, then look no further than Houdini. All you need to do is fill out an application to adopt him and be ready to pick him up in beautiful southern CA, if you are selected to be his forever home. He's way too big to fly, so plan on driving.
FBRN does not ship dogs as cargo. Except in rare or unusual cases, adopters are expected to pick up their dogs from their foster family. In rare or unusual cases, FBRN may be able to assist in transporting a dog to a volunteer near the adopter's home, but the expense of transporting the dog must be the responsibility of the adopting party.
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.
