If Gene looks familiar, it’s because he is! You may have noticed he’s made his debut before but after discovering some important considerations, he needed just a bit more time in foster to establish his needs for his forever home. Gene’s markings are still adorable and it has been said that he’s quite the dapper gentleman when out on walks! Gene is now almost 2 and 1/2 years old and came to FBRN from a commercial breeding facility. Not too much is known about his past but he’s ready to move on from that and head into the future.
Since Gene has been in foster care again, it was found that he needs to be the only animal. He does very well meeting dogs and children outside of the house on walks but does not do as well sharing a living space with them. He loves his one person so hard, he will guard them against other animals and people. He does have a special diet that he follows to keep his liver enzymes low. He enjoys Canine caviar alkaline hard food and doesn’t mind some liver support and vitamin powders mixed in.
Gene needs few things in a forever home. He is young and healthy, so he’s easier to take care of. All he asks of his forever person is that he gets love and walks and is the single source of attention. His walks are a sight to behold. He walks light on his feet with ears perked up in super adorable mode. He likes to follow by your side and if you need a break, he’s happy to sit and rest next to you. Gene is pretty laid back and is content with whatever time it is be it rest, play or cuddle.
He has some other things that he would enjoy in a forever home. If you have some toys to chew on, treats stocked up, and offers of car rides; then Gene will be in heaven. Need cuddles or a napping partner? Gene is down for that too. He would do well in any type of home: apartment, condo, house, or teepee (well, we’re not sure about that last one).
Gene is working on his potty training. He is crate trained; however, a mid-day break is necessary if you need to work outside the home. It is preferred if his person worked from home where he could be with them all day. But be warned, he does not like to be crated if he knows you are still home and he will make that known. He has been fine being crated while his foster goes to work. He would be fine for a first time Frenchie owner.
Gene’s foster mom had this to say about him, “Gene really is a very special dog. He loves adventuring with his person and getting lots of love. He’s curious about you and his surroundings. Loves treats. He’s ready to be in a forever home with his person and will provide them with a lifetime of enjoyment and love. I’d like to describe him as a compact ball of fun, love, and companionship. It has been a true joy fostering him and if I ever were to foster fail again, he’d be the one to do it with.”
If you think that you can give Gene a life of companionship and adventure, then simply fill out the link to apply for him. After that be ready to whisk him off for a lifetime of fun, should you be selected as his!
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.
