He might not have come from a galaxy far, far away, but BBEight has made his debut on the available page! This adorable one-year-old boy is ready to find the perfect home. BBEight was surrendered when his previous family realized he was not the right fit for them. You see, his previous family planned for BBEight to be an emotional support animal. Unfortunately, in true Frenchie fashion, his death yodels were actually triggering to his companion. Thus, he was surrendered to FBRN.
BBEight is a puppy, and as such has no training. He would benefit from his new family taking him to training classes. He also hasn’t learned his social cues and needs work on when others don’t want to play with him. Finally, he loves to put anything possible in his mouth. He’s already tried a combo of string, fabric, and hair. Unfortunately, that caused a blockage and surgery was needed to remove it. For this reason, his forever home should not have small toys on the floor and BBEight should be monitored closely.
He does not presently have any health issues, and is only taking some supplements while he recovers from his surgery. While BBEight doesn’t currently live with kids, he has done well with the neighborhood children. He hasn’t been tested with cats, but does like to chase anything that will run. For this reason, a home with no other small animals would be best.
BBEight is housebroken. However, he tends to mark the first week or so and can be a “phantom pooper” until he’s comfortable with his new environment. Even once he’s settled-in, BBEight doesn’t signal that he needs to go out. BBEight will need structured training in his new home. He’s learning the word no, but tends to be quite stubborn. He’s fine in his crate, but he doesn’t go in voluntarily. Additionally, BBEight has a tendency to throw a tantrum when he’s done being in his crate, once you leave, or just in general when you are not doing what he wants you to do (which is usually cuddling). BBEight will sing his sorrows for all to hear. He might do okay in a townhome, but maybe not an apartment. Certainly not if you want to keep the peace with your neighbors!
This little man would do great in a home with children, provided there was nothing on the floor he could eat. He would be fine for first time Frenchie owners; but they would need to put him in training classes! He is a young and strong willed Frenchie who would do well with someone who can give him proper direction. Someone who works from home would be ideal for BBEight! But someone who comes home mid-day to provide a walk or romp around in the yard would be fine. Once he is trained, BBEight might have potential to go to the office, however, if there are items around he finds interesting to chew, you might spend more time watching him than doing office work.
BBEight’s foster mom had this to say about him, “BBEight is your typical puppy. Curious about new things, loves to play and explore everything, and he is a cuddler. He loves to be in the bed snuggled up against his person under the covers and it’s the only time he’s still. I can’t stress enough his need to put everything in his mouth to either eat or chew on; sticks, rocks, strings, dog toy pieces if they are broken apart, paper, dryer sheets. Anything that he can get to fit in his mouth.”
If you feel that you can provide BBEight everything he needs, and no extra floor snacks; all you need to do is apply for him! You should be ready to pick him up in Virginia should you be selected to be his forever home! 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.
