The beautiful little flower, Magnolia, will not need to be uprooted in order to find her forever family! Her foster family proved to have the perfect conditions for Magnolia’s optimal growth. Not only has Magnolia bonded with her pug sister, her mom is well versed in managing dogs with allergies. Also, Magnolia’s separation anxiety has improved tremendously. Her new mom works from home but, when she needs to leave, Magnolia’s new grandparents are nearby and ready to visit. We call that a win win! Way to blossom Magnolia.
Just in time for the holidays, Santa Paws brought Rhonnie the one thing she wanted most of all–a forever home of her very own! Rhonnie’s new family is truly the perfect match for this sweet girl. Not only do they have the patience and know-how to work with Rhonnie on her potty issues, but as an only dog, Rhonnie is now the queen of all she surveys. “As it should be,” says Rhonnie, as she snuggles with her new humans. We couldn’t be happier for our resident cream puff and her adopters, and wish them nothing but the best in 2021 and the years to come!
My goodness Gordita, it seems you’ve hit the smushyface jackpot! Gordita’s new family includes a mom who works from home, two older brothers and a dad who is a previous FBRN adopter (Carrae ’13).

Her family has experience with back surgeries and are well-versed in caring for a dog with IVDD. Have a wonderful life, sweet girl!
Juggernaut is a shy, older boy who has been in foster care for some time. He is slow to bond with people and it took a lot of time to figure out how to successfully manage his allergies. Juggernaut’s forever family is happy to make his food and do everything necessary to make sure his allergies are kept under control. They are also well aware of the financial requirements needed to provide this specialty care and on-going daily management. That is why we are so excited to announce that Juggernaut has landed in his perfect forever home. This lucky guy will get to stay right where he is with his foster family!
Onslow was shelter dog, presented to FBRN as a sickly fellow who wasn’t likely to see his next birthday. His loving foster family was fully prepared for this and on board for giving him some bucket list time. Surprise! Onslow is definitely a senior dog with some maladies, but he has shown no indication of shucking his mortal coil any time soon. Onslow has made himself quite at home with his foster family and this is where he will stay. We never know how much time is left for us all, but we know for sure every moment of Onslow’s time will be filled with love.
It warms our hearts to report that sweet, silly Skippy has found his forever home!

Plus, Coal’s new mom and dad are at home all day, so they can wait on her hand and foot (paw and paw?) and take her on lots of adventures in their dog-friendly neighborhood. Sounds pretty sweet, if you ask us. Keep burning bright, sweet Coal!
Sweet, special Gizmo has found her perfect forever home! Gizmo enjoys being outdoors and the move from Florida to New York will allow her to be outdoors without all that hot weather and it’ll allow her to sunbathe – which is high on her list of things she loves! Her adoptive family has other special needs dogs and Gizmo will get all the help and love that she needs! Her adoptive family will let Gizmo sleep with them and that is also high on Gizmo’s list, as she’s a huge snuggle-bug! Congrats and happy trails, Gizmo!
As a nurse, Peekaboo’s forever mom is well versed in taking care of things, and this is just what the doctor ordered since Peekaboo requires daily maintenance!

A truly special rescue has found a truly special forever family. FBRN saves many special needs dogs and Karen is a poster child. She has severe anxiety that will be with her forever, dietary needs that include a lot of cooking, and she needs companion dogs(s).

Karen truly has found her best forever home where her loving personality can shine through.

Maybe you were wondering why FBRN’s famous potato dumpling foster Gnocchi never made it to the available main menu. Well, it’s because he has found his forever browned butter and sage sauce (okay, maybe we’ve been watching too much Food Network during quarantine). In other words, Gnocchi, won’t be going anywhere as his foster-turned-adoptive family has the history and fortitude to work with his behavioral idiosyncrasies. They already have consults lined up with a veterinary behaviorist and experienced trainer. With this much expertise on his side, the future looks mighty bright for Gnocchi.

Chai certainly lucked out with this family and we’re so happy for all.
Coleman, our beautiful brindle boy with the smart white shirt, has found his happily ever after!

Guess who found the macaroni to his cheese, the peanut butter to his jelly, the bun to his….BURGER! That’s right. Burger has found his forever family and he’s been there all along. He has flourished so much while in foster and has developed a routine that has brought him out of his shell. He has playmates, a fenced yard and a loving work-from-home family who understands his behavioral and medical (allergy) issues. We couldn’t ask for anything more. Love these perfect matches.
Lucky lady! Fortunia’s new mom has extensive experience with Fortunia’s medical and allergy problems. To help pay for the resident allergy dog’s medication and specialized treatment, Fortunia’s new mom took a second job rather than give him up. She is home most of the day and has extended family to watch the dogs when she is not at home. Fortunia’s new home is very quiet, so there will be little to work on her nerves or upset her. Fortunia got lucky in this new home, yes, indeed! Enjoy, Fortunia! Good luck!
Her tenaciousness when it comes to these issues. She worked as a Lyft driver as a second job to help pay the vet bills (prior to her current job which pays much better) rather than give up on her little Geoffrey. Also,she understands the importance of following the vet’s orders when it comes to food, grooming, etc. to nip allergies in the bud before they become unmanageable and unbearable for the dog.
She works from home and when she has to be away, she entrusts her parents to watch the pup – so they will never be alone.
Fortunia will be in a low-key household with little to make her nervous or upset.

They’ll be able to keep her allergies under control, and she’ll shower them with that special Lula-love.
