Sparkly, shiny, and full of life, Tiara has made her way onto the available page. Tiara came to FBRN when her previous home had to give her up because it was thought that one of the children in the home was allergic to her. She is an older lady, but still has a ton of spunk and play left in her.
Tiara likes anything that is human and has legs. Though Tiara loves her 5-year-old foster sister and follows her around, we won't place her in a home with little kids because Tiara is a resource guarder, and though she does well in her foster home, we know her foster sister is dog-savvy and won't make the kinds of mistakes that could result in bringing Tiara back to us, or worse, end up hurting a little one, either the resident or a less-educated visiting friend. It's happened.
Tiara does well around cats that are dog savvy, as she still likes to try and play with them sometimes, so they should be able to escape to a safe space if they don't feel like playing canine games.
Tiara currently lives with a foster Frenchie sister. They do well together, but Tiara can be a bully and pushes other dogs away for the humans' full attention. She does have treat guarding tendencies. If the small human drops a tasty morsel on the floor, there sometimes will be a small squabble with the other dog but Tiara is corrected with a stern no. For all these reasons, and for the safety of little ones, we think Tiara would do best in a home with no other dogs (and no little kids). She has amazing manners-- unless she feels as though you are ignoring her, then she will bark to get attention.
Her favorite toys are her squeaky snake and stuffed unicorn. If you come home from a small errand or even upon waking in the morning, she is quick to grab her toy and walk around with it in hopes you might throw it once or twice for her. She does like walks and rides in the car. One should also welcome showers of kisses from Tiara, she does love to lick her humans any chance she gets. If you find yourself with frequent dinner guests, she's sure to dazzle them with her personality and steal the spotlight. She loves to laze around in her pajamas or a dress, and wouldn't mind spending all day watching cartoons or a movie marathon with her humans.
Tiara is house broken and crate trained. She does well when being put in her crate for part of the day while someone is at work. Tiara would thrive in a home where someone was home with her all day long, or there was someone who only worked part of the day. She would also like a home with children that she could spend her time hanging out with and loving on. Perhaps a home that has children frequently visit would work great for her as well! A fenced yard is preferred, as she does have a high prey drive when she sees squirrels or people walking pets out the window. She would most likely run after them if she were outside with no fence. Since Tiara can be quite vocal, an apartment probably wouldn't be the best environment for her.
Tiara's foster mom had this to say about her:"Tiara has been the sweetest foster that I have had so far. She has manners, but will bark if she feels that she doesn't have your full attention or you aren't cuddling with her. While she does good with the resident Frenchie in our home, it would be best that she be an only dog. She can be a bit pushy and bossy when trying to get the other dog out of the way head pats or belly rubs. If you are looking for a companion for [older] children or an adorable Frenchie to have around you while you spend your time at home, Tiara would be a great fit. You couldn't ask for a more well mannered old girl with a spunky personality."
If you have room in your clan for Tiara and can fulfill all the wants on her Christmas list, you should consider adopting Tiara. All you need to do is be ready to pick her up if you are selected to adopt her.
FBRN does not ship dogs as cargo, so 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.
Tiara is a resource guarder so must never be around small children. She should be an only dog.
Tiara has had elevated liver enzymes in the past and should have liver enzymes monitored during her annual vet appointments.
Tiara might have allergies. We are waiting to hear about that.
