Naomi was surrendered when her family could no longer afford to care for her medical needs. She has terrible allergies, and she has lost her hearing following total ear canal ablation surgery to address the long-term infections in her ears.
Naomi doesn't much like other dogs, unless they always let her have her way--she's a dominant girl (like the majority of Frenchie girls)--and she will do a smack down on dominant dogs. She even puts the dominant puppy in her foster home in his place! No patience, that's Naomi's way.
She does have lots of energy and loves to walk on her leash and play with her toys--squeakies and Nylabones are the best! She's a curious girl, and she adores her people. When she's out walking, she will let the world know that there is another dog on the planet if she happens to see it, so Naomi is not a good dog for teaching young people about responsibility--she can't be walked by kids.
Naomi is crate trained. She is housebroken. She would benefit from sign-language training and obedience class. She has a high prey drive, so no cats or small animals should share her home.
Ideally, Naomi's new home would include: An active owner or family; a securely fenced yard with a gate that shuts automatically (obviously, a deaf dog cannot be called back or hear a car coming); a family with deaf dog experience; someone who can come home--or provide a walker--at noon if they work outside the home; because she cries when she is separated from her people, a home without shared walls would be best.
Naomi could happily go to work if her exercise needs are met, and she's the only dog.
She's a favorite in her foster family, and here's what they had to say: "Naomi is an extremely sweet and loving dog who deserves a very special family who will appreciate her enthusiasm and joie de vivre. She is a strong dog who fought hard to survive and has made a full recovery from her surgeries. She can only hear a little bit so someone patient who is willing to work with her on had signals would be great. Naomi is a love and I wish for her an adoring attentive family where she can thrive."
Naomi is a bit too big to fly, so applicants should be prepared to drive her home. She's enjoying winter in Florida. Of course, she will not be shipped.
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.
