Everyone's favorite curious cream puff, Rhonnie, is now ready to find her forever home after spending some time in FBRN foster care after her owner passed away.
At three years old, Rhonnie has already built an impressive resume: adorable, active, inquisitive, playful (the more toys the better), and snuggly (dogs and humans alike). She is a pretty good listener too, if her foster mom does say so herself. She currently lives with dog-savvy cats and while very interested in them, she has never tried to harm them. She also lives with similar-size dogs and loves to rough house so potential canine playmates should be willing to get ready to rumble. And if her new home does have resident dogs, slow introductions and establishing boundaries are a must. Rhonnie can get overly excited when meeting new furry friends (who wouldn't after months of quarantine?).
Rhonnie needs to be fed separately and securely from other dogs as she will guard her food. Perhaps she thinks her diet always starts "tomorrow" so she doesn't dare share. However, with some hard work, foster mom is now able to safely give treats to all the pups without issue. Rhonnie also finds chew toys to be very valuable and will make sure no other dogs come close to taking them from her. Because of Rhonnie's history of resource guarding, she should never be around small children. If applicants have children 8 years or older, please let Rhonnie know how everyone will be kept safe during feeding and play time. Careful monitoring will be key.
Any potential adopter should not just be swayed by those big, brown puppy-dog eyes without being prepared to work with Rhonnie on her potty training. She will use pee pads but is not completely housebroken. She is crate trained, doesn't bark much, and is quite adaptable to most situations so, apartment life? Check. Detached home? For sure! Tiny home? Why not? Work in a pet-friendly office (lucky!)? Rhonnie would absolutely be down for that and will surely make social distancing more difficult. Rhonnie would be fine with a first-time Frenchie owner but applications with previous dog experience, especially resource guarding, might be prioritized.
Rhonnie's foster mom sings her praises, "Rhonnie is very easy to love. She’s a snuggler, a lover, a player and seems to be able to adjust to about any scenario. I don’t know how she is around kids but I would prefer kids 8 and up as they can respect boundaries a bit better. Anyone would be lucky to be able to add her to their family...I know I would!"
If Rhonnie sounds like your kind of dawg, what are you waiting for? Apply now. She has a lot of love and snuggles to give so whether by plane, train, or automobile, plan your trip to Northeastern Ohio because FBRN does not ship dogs as cargo. 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.
Potty training is a work in progress.
Rhonnie is a resource guarder so must never be around small children. She must be monitored during feeding and when toys are present. A slow intro is required if there are other dogs in the home.
Sweet little Rhonnie I'm so sorry you lost your person. I know you will find a new family soon. :)Lynn Follansbee
For little Rhonnie xoxo Tabitha Ott
