Wes has several allergies and must remain on Apoquel daily (about $70/month), his current diet, Omega-3 pet supplements, and have regular medicated baths. He is allergic to human epithelia (shed skin cells), feathers, and wool. Unfortunately for Wes, this means he is not able to sleep in his humans' beds, snuggle on feather pillows, or wrap up in down or wool blankets, and he must stay away from wool rugs.
Wes has a history of skin and ear infections and must be monitored for recurrence. He has brachycephalic airway syndrome: https://vcahospitals.com/know-your-p...ndrome-in-dogs. He had nares and palate resection and saccules removed on 06.18.2018. He must wear a harness when going for walks, never a collar or choke chain.
Wes is a calm, polite lover of all things. Wes found himself at FBRN because his previous home didn't have the time needed to devote to him. We're sure that there's a forever family out there waiting to welcome him with open arms.
Wes is calm and not big on barking. He minds his manners and doesn't beg for food and stays off of the furniture. He's happy to sleep most of the day. However, when people appear Wes comes alive. He loves belly rubs and having someone to pet him. He's a happy guy and loves life. He doesn't mind walks but is more interested in the scenery than the exercise. He loves balls and ropes. When it comes to stuffies, well, he's a demolition expert.
Wes is a bit confused when it comes to doing his business. He will go outside to wee, but he does have a habit of peeing in his crate. It appears that this could be due to a training mistake in the early months of his life where he was crated with a potty pad. It's possible that he could be retrained out of the habit, given sufficient time and consistency on his people's part.
He does have the perfect trifecta going for him. He loves kids, dogs, and cats. A family with children would be ideal for Wes. He loves to watch the children playing outside. He would do well with children who would indulge his need to have attention on him. He does jump and could inadvertently scratch with his nails, so it might be best if there were no really small humans present. Wes would be able to adapt to any structure--apartment, townhouse, or otherwise. If he could calm down his enthusiasm with people he would make a great office dog. Wes would do well with someone who can come home mid day or who works from home for part of the day. He needs at least intermittent company throughout the day.
Wes's foster mom had this to say about him: "He has an energy that says "I love you " as he bounds toward you. He is friendly and loves all of life. He's subordinate and waits his turn even at the food bowl. He has good manners and is very adaptable. He does have a bit of a stubborn streak if you want to go left and he wants to go right! And he can utilize selective listening- a 100% Frenchie."
If you are looking for a Frenchie who will want nothing more than to be your companion and spend time getting belly rubs, you should consider Wes. He wants nothing more than humans of his own. All you need to do is fill out an application and be ready to pick up Wes if you are selected as his forever home. At 20 pounds, he is probably able to fly in an airline-approved carrier, but he also enjoys riding in the car if you are up for a little drive to beautiful upstate New York.
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.
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.
He's a beauty! Donna DelBasso
