One look at his goofy grin and you can tell that Pistachio is a clown with a capital "C"! This little nut came to us when his owner could no longer take care of him in 2012, but bad luck struck again and he is back with us!
Pistachio’s a great guy who’s always going for a laugh. He’s housebroken, loves a good snuggle, and is playful. He’ll need to be an only dog since he is dog and cat reactive, but he’s good with older, dog-savvy kids who will be able to handle his rambunctious play -- he can get mouthy, but will stop when asked. But give him a soft plush toy or a rope and it’s game on! Pistachio may need a refresher with his training. Although he seems to know “sit”, “stay”, and “come”, it’s usually up to him whether he listens or not.
He's a big, strong active guy who loves running around and playing, so a fenced yard is required because of his dog reactivity. He loves going for walks but unless you live in an unpopulated area and are prepared to control him if he sees another animal then he should stay in his yard. When he does see another animal he lunges, screams like a crazy thing and flexes his very impressive bulldog muscles. At home he's pretty easygoing as long as he gets a pee break in the middle of the day and some cuddle time at night before he retires to his room with a nightlight. He absolutely loves car rides, which is good because he's too big to fly.
Pistachio is a big Frenchie with a big personality, and he is ready to settle down for good. His foster family will miss his antics and big heart, but hope he will find the right people this time.
“It is going to be hard saying goodbye to Pistachio, he has made me smile and laugh everyday. He has the most expressive face and when he is at his happiest he "hops". Since he was adopted four years ago, I promised him this time will be his FOREVER home.”
Pistachio is roasting in the Virginia sun. Be sure your car has working a/c when you go to pick him up!
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. 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.
