Are you dreaming of a white Frenchie Christmas? Are cream-colored Frenchies (and crisp apple strudel) some of your favorite things? Would a rowdy-but-sweet, rambunctious-but-cuddly little dog bring some serious joy to your world? Then hold onto your Santa hats, because we’ve got just the pup for you. It’s Renly!
Renly came to FBRN because he didn’t get along with the other dogs in his house. We suspect they may have been overwhelmed by his irrepressible puppy energy, since he’s shown no signs of aggression while in foster care (just the occasional bout of jealousy when foster mom pets someone who isn’t him). In fact, despite his penchant for mischief (and the occasional humping of the living room pillows), Renly has been quite the gentleman, loving on adults, children, and other dogs with equal aplomb. He’s even fond of the resident cat, who is dog-savvy and knows to get out of the way when Renly comes barreling through.
The ideal home for Renly is one that can keep up with his antics! At just one year old, he is full of pee-pee and vinegar (as Grandma would say to us kids) and requires plenty of exercise and play to keep his mind and body engaged. A fenced yard would be nice, but Renly is also happy to get his exercise on-leash or at a fenced dog park. He would make a perfect work buddy, whether you’re in your pajamas on Zoom or have to actually get dressed and go the office. And he’s amenable to just about any housing situation, though he should not be left unattended with small animals (and any resident cats should have a safe space in case he gets a bit over-exuberant). Most of all, Renly just wants attention from his people, and any future guardians must be willing and able to engage in some serious belly-scratching and snuggle sessions.
Renly’s vet tells us that he’s in tip top shape, with just one minor medical issue—an intermittent urethral prolapse, which means that his urethra occasionally protrudes through the tip of his penis. This is a condition seen most often in young, intact, brachycephalic dogs (and Renly checked all three boxes before his neuter). Left untreated, it can cause serious urinary tract and bladder infections. Renly’s new family will have to keep an eye on his nether regions and take him to the vet right away if his penis becomes inflamed or he seems to have pain urinating.
Renly’s foster mom thinks the world of this little dude, and tells us, “He is an easy-going dog who loves to be with his person. I would hope he would go to home that wants a constant companion or several people in the home to love him.”
Renly has only asked Santa Paws for one thing this holiday season, and that’s a forever home of his very own. Might you be able to grant his Christmas wish? If so, fill out an application and tell us why you and Renly would make the perfect pair. Just be prepared to travel, whether by sleigh or otherwise—Renly is watching chestnuts roasting on an open fire in the great state of Texas, and will not be shipped.
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.
Renley has intermittent penile prolapse requiring an annual urinalysis.
Renly, I hope you are able to get some toys! Alexandra Comstock
For sweet Renley. I can't wait to see you find a new home. Maybe with me. Fingers crossed. Ginger Thatcher
