She does better on carpets and grass than she does on tile. She cannot go up or down stairs or get on or off of furniture. She takes Meloxidyl (1x per day), Heartguard (1x per month), and NexGuard (1x per month).
Cruella is ready to find the perfect forever home! Cruella is looking for a new family that understands her special needs and wants a loving girl to spend time with all day long.
Cruella is a very sweet little lady who adores spending time with her humans and snuggling on the couch. If she isn’t sitting right next to her favorite person on the couch, she can be found chewing on her favorite bone or just following her humans around the house. She always wants to be right where the people are. Cruella adores children and loves every person she meets. In her foster home there are four little girls that keep her busy all day long and she just loves it!
Cruella does not really like other dogs, so the perfect home for her will be one without other dogs or pets. When other dogs are around, she tends to guard her food. Her lady like demeanor takes a 180 and she does everything she can to keep the other dogs out of the kitchen where her food is being made.
Cruella can live in any kind of house or apartment as long as there is nice securely fenced yard for her to easily access for potty breaks. Cruella is house trained but may have accidents if not kept to a consistent potty schedule. Her foster family works from home and is able to pick her up and put her outside to do her business on a consistent basis. The perfect family for Cruella will have someone home most of the day to keep her company and keep up with her potty breaks. Cruella’s new family can have children if they are dog savvy and understand that she is more fragile than other dogs. She can be adopted by first time Frenchie owners as long as they understand her special needs and are willing to shower her with the love and attention she deserves. Cruella would love to go to the office with her new owners but only if there weren’t any other dogs there.
Due to Cruella’s special needs, it is best for her to travel by car. She does get nervous during car trips but has done well on short 30 minute trips with her foster family. When she was surrendered to FBRN she did fine on a 3-hour car ride to her foster home with a mild sedative.
