In 900 years of time and space, you’ve never met a Frenchie as lovey-dovey, mushy-smushy, wibbly-wobbly timey-wimey as our dear little Tardis. She’s charming, clever, and looks great in a bow tie. And if you’re looking for a companion to join you in some wacky wild adventures—or just a BBC binge watch—you couldn’t do better than this sweet girl.
Tardis is a retired breeder mama whose puppy-raising days are behind her, and it took her approximately .234 seconds to adjust to her new life as a pet. It’s almost as if she can’t believe her good fortune. Toys! Treats! Cuddles! The people bed! Tardis wants it all and she can’t get enough. She gets along with everyone she meets, human or canine, and enjoys outside romps and inside snuggles in equal measure.
Health-wise, Tardis is in pretty good shape. Like so many Frenchies, she suffers from allergies (most notably to storage mites) but a special diet keeps them under control. Her new family must continue to feed her raw, freeze-dried, or gently cooked food, along with supplements to help keep those itchies at bay. Tardis also has Grade 1 periodontal disease, meaning that she has mild gingivitis and plaque build-up. A good dental routine with continued veterinary monitoring is a must! As for potty training, well, that’s still a bit of a work in progress. Currently, a strict potty schedule keeps Tardis from having accidents in the house, but it’s likely that she will regress a bit when she moves into her new home. Her new family must be ready to do a refresher course in the finer arts of peeing outside, and understand that there might be a puddle or two along the way.
Tardis would be happy in any type of living situation (house, apartment, phone box that’s bigger on the inside) so long as she gets plenty of exercise and love from her people. Tardis craves attention and would not do well being by herself all day, but she’d be a perfect work-from-home companion and would be equally content to hang out at the office. And while she would love a doggie sibling to wrassle around with, she’d also be happy as an only dog. The most important thing is that she get tons of playtime and even more cuddle-time! Tardis has never met a person she doesn’t love immediately, so we expect she would get along famously with children; however, due to her high energy and rough ‘n’ tumble playing style, any resident children should be older and not prone to toppling if run into at high speed by a black-masked fawn projectile. Kitties and other small animals are a nope, sorry to say.
Tardis’s foster mom can’t say enough good things about this darling girl, “She is the most loving dog. She is aggressively affectionate. You will love her and you will pet her and you will use both hands. Personal space means nothing to her. She will make you feel like Justin Bieber every time you walk in the door. She has perfected the puppy eyes and does not hesitate to use it. She wants nothing more in this world than to be with her person.”
So whaddya say? If you think that Tardis is the custard to your fish sticks, then don’t blink—fill out an application to adopt and tell us why you’d make a perfect match. Just be prepared to travel, Tardis is dreaming of adventures through time and space in the beautiful state of Maryland, 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.
Potty training is a work in progress. Tardis has several allergies including storage mites and must remain on a raw, canned, gently-cooked or freeze-dried diet. Nature’s Farmacy supplements and Nordic Naturals Omega-3 Pet supplements may also be required. She has Grade 1 periodontal disease which must be monitored by a veterinarian.
You had me at Tardis!! Does she have 2 hearts and sonic screwdriver? Is her best friend the Doc? Hope she ends up with all the love, respect, comfort and fish sticks with custard she deserves. No one should have to be a baby factory! Here's to being Timey Wimy and Wibbly Wobbly! Don't forget to get her a Fez. Fezzes are cool!! David Gerwig
