Guess who’s all healed up and ready to bounce, pounce, and scamper onto the Available Page? It’s Jameson! This handsome little man has his suitcase packed and ready to go, off to a new adventure in his very own forever home.
Jameson was purchased at a pet store and surrendered when his owner could not keep up with his laundry list of health issues. When he first arrived at FBRN, Jameson was suffering from kennel cough, cherry eye, an umbilical hernia, and itchy ears. Yikes! But thanks to the support of our wonderful supporters, he was fixed up right as rain, and is now the picture of smooshy-faced health.
We often refer to our dogs as “sweet,” but with Jameson it reaches a whole new level. Think of the sweetest thing you can imagine, multiply it by a thousand, then add another thousand—and guess what, you’re still not even close. This little nugget loves everyone who crosses his path, and wants to be as close to his people as humanly (canine-ly?) possible. He is a first-class snuggler and a gold star cuddler, and gets along splendidly with his canine foster siblings. Jameson loves playing with toys, and his favorite game is to hide his stuffies in plain sight and wait for his humans to find them. (Just play along and pretend you don’t see them—we don’t want to hurt his feelings.)
At only nine months old, Jameson is surprisingly docile and doesn’t need more than a walk around the neighborhood to get his ya-yas out. But he’s much more puppy-like in his potty habits, and housebreaking is still very much a work in progress (particularly in the #2 category). Fortunately, Jameson is a clever boy who is very motivated to please his people, so we expect that with consistent training and positive reinforcement, he’ll get this potty business all squared away. Because his potty habits are not 100%, we don't think babies or toddlers are a good idea, and since it is nearly impossible for children to resist picking him up, we'd like to ask for older, dog-savvy kids with a solid understanding that picking up a Frenchie could mean dropping a Frenchie, and that could mean surgery and yadda yadda.
The ideal home for Jameson is one with lots of hustle and bustle, with some dogs (but no cats!) and dog savvy kids with whom he can play the day away. A fenced yard is also a plus, given his need for continuing education in the potty department. Since he craves attention, Jameson would do best in a home where someone is around most of the day. He’s not much of a barker, so he’d be an ideal candidate to take to the office, but just know that he will want to spend the entire day in your lap. (We find that our productivity increases with Frenchies on our person, but YMMV.)
Jameson’s foster mom has fallen head-over-heels for this delectable boy and has this to say: “Jameson is just the sweetest little pup. He has brought so much joy and spark into our lives over these past few months. He gets along so well with our resident dogs (which is a first for us) and loves his toys. He has learned to sit, wait, paw, look at me and learned it all within 3 days. He goes to trivia every Tuesday night and has gained quite the following there. I wear him in a scarf and he is all used to the routine. I put the scarf on, pick him up, and he picks his legs up to get in. He lays down and snuggles into me the whole time. He is very used to the car, loves everyone that has entered the house, and is just so playful. He does still have a hard time with going to the bathroom outside. A belly band may help. Other than that, someone who is patient and understanding would be best. He is highly motivated with verbal praise and a belly rub. Treats are a bonus but unnecessary as an enthusiastic, "good boy" does the trick. He has the most adorable "Tigger hop" when he is playing in the house too! He loves to play with other dogs and is so respectful when he makes a mistake. He play bows when having fun and lays down when the other dogs give him a warning. I have never met a more submissive Frenchie.”
Is there a Jameson-shaped hole in your home and heart? If so, fill out an application to adopt and tell us why you’re meant to be. Just be prepared to travel—Jameson is playing hide and go seek with his plushies in sunny Florida, and will not be shipped.
FBRN does not ship dogs as cargo, so 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.
Jameson had cherry eye and hernia repair surgery in May this year. He should remain on a variety of supplements.
Potty training is a work in progress.
Jameson, here’s to a speedy recovery and a forever home, you beautiful boy! Sending you lots of healing love, slobbery kisses, and endless cuddles - in loving memory of our little angel, Libby Lou. Love, Julia and Casey Klyszeiko
