We are electrified to announce that our electric girl Electra is available for adoption! Try saying that five times fast, and then read on to find out whether you and Electra might be a perfect match.
Electra was sadly surrendered to FBRN when her owners moved overseas and were unable to take her with them. She was well-loved in her previous home, and it shows—Electra is a sweet, social girl who sticks to her people like a bat-eared bottle of glue. Some dogs don’t mind snoozing the day away in solitude, but not Electra—she craves attention and wants a human around 24-7. And at just 2 years old, Electra is much less interested in napping than playing…and when she plays, she plays HARD. Whether it’s zoomies around the yard, playing tug-o-war, or chasing one of her beloved sticks, Electra is happiest when she’s on the move.
Personality-wise, Electra is textbook Frenchie—a sweet, goofy clown with a streak of the stubborn. She is smart as a whip and knows all of her basic commands, and good luck trying to hide one of her toys—she knows where you put it before you do! Electra exhibits mild guarding behavior on occasion, but she responds well to gentle verbal correction.
The perfect home for Electra is one with a family who is around most of the time, and who has the energy to keep up with her! A fenced yard with adequate play space is a must, as are people who work from home. Alternatively, Electra would be pleased as punch to accompany her person to work, but her tendency to bark when she sees a new friend (human or canine) could be a teeny bit disruptive in a busy office setting. On that note, Electra has never met a person she doesn’t love, but due to her rough-and-tumble style of play, it’s best that any kids in the household be over 10 and dog-savvy. And while we’re on the topic of dogs, let it be known that Electra would love to have a doggie playmate, but will require slooooooooow introductions to any resident canines. Like, slow as molasses, or rush hour traffic, or the ticking of the clock while you’re waiting for quitting time.
Electra is in generally good health, but her breathing passages are narrow, and nares/palate surgery could be indicated in her future. For the time being, it’s important that her new family study up on the special needs of brachycephalic dogs, and make sure that she doesn’t get too hot or too winded. Electra also has a recessed vulva, which means her lady bits need to be cleaned every day to prevent infection.
Electra’s foster mom is understandably smitten with this darling girl, and says, “Electra comes from a house where she was loved dearly from 8 weeks old. She is a member of the family and wants nothing more than to be by our side. She is a little clown and will do anything to make you laugh. At 5 a.m. sharp every morning she comes up and lays on my chest with kisses and cuddles galore! At 8 p.m. she gets up from whichever lap she is sitting on and takes herself to bed! She will walk back down the hall and whine a few times to ask us to come with her but then she will go curl up in bed. After all she has to be ready for the 5 a.m. wake up 😉 She has such enthusiasm for everyone and everything she comes into contact with. She loves to play. I can’t say it enough. Having known nothing but love she does nothing but beam that love back at us!”
If there is an Electra-shaped hole in your life and you think she’d be the perfect fit, please fill out an application to adopt and tell us why! Just be prepared to travel—Electra is romping and rollicking in sunny Arizona, and will not be shipped.
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.
