Who is pretty, petite and pink all over? You guessed it! It’s our beautiful brindle Kacey in pig pajamas and she’s on the available page. At six years old, sweet Kacey was tearfully surrendered when her former family realized they couldn’t give her the time she deserved. Enter FBRN, and a fabulous foster home, and now Kacey is ready to find her forever family!
Plainly put, Kacey is a blast. She has just the right amount of energy plus snuggle quotient. While she may be approaching doggy middle age, she is full of curiosity, mischief and spark. One of her many talents include playing with two balls at once: one in her mouth and one pawed around like a soccer ball. It’s a sight to behold. Kacey is very smart and will benefit from continued training in her forever home.
Aside from common allergies, and the infamous selective Frenchie hearing, Kacey is a pretty healthy gal. She is on Apoquel, Omega 3 supplements, digestive enzymes and hip chews, and she receives medicated baths – all of which should be continued by her forever family. Kacey is house trained and crate trained.
After slow introductions, Kacey has gotten along with dogs of all sizes. She will steal dog food that isn’t hers, so she should be fed separately from any resident dogs. And she has been protective of “her things” in the past, so she will need to be monitored around toys when other dogs are present. Kacey has a pretty remarkable prey drive and cannot go to a home with cats, birds, or other small pets. She also needs a person who will be ready to hold on to the leash tightly when she sees a squirrel or other chase-able critter while out on walks. A fenced yard is preferred as Kacey’s favorite pastime is keeping guard to make sure the yard stays critter free. A fenced yard, however, should not replace her walks as she loves greeting all her neighbors (and needs the exercise).
While in foster care, Kacey has become quite the errand connoisseur, going to numerous dog-friendly establishments. She even has loyalty cards at Joann’s and Home Depot, but you’ll need to carry it for her, please. Kacey, and her foster family, really hope to find a forever family who will treat her like the princess she is and include her in errands when appropriate. If her new family works outside of the home, she’ll be fine with a midday break and lots of attention when you get home. She does alert to and bark at new noises so dwellings with shared walls may not be ideal unless said walls are soundproof. Kacey could potentially adapt to an office environment as long as she gets to say hi to all her new human coworkers.
Kacey’s foster says, “This girl is special. When you walk in the door and see the smile and the bounce and twirl, whatever bad day you may have had will disappear. Dog kisses are abundant, which go along with the wiggle of her misshapen tail. She will gladly free your yard from bunnies and squirrels; if she sees them through the window or patio door, you will be alerted. I take her everywhere I can, never a problem.”
If you have dreamed of having a Frenchie princess who absolutely rocks pink pig PJs, fill out an application telling us why you would be a good match for Kacey. (If you include a picture of yourself in similar PJs, we can’t guarantee selection but your application will be flagged VIPPP – very important person in pig PJs.) Kacey looks forward to reading about her new potential family and thanks you for your consideration. She resides in Wisconsin so plan your trip if chosen as her new family because FBRN does not ship dogs as cargo. 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.
