Macie has made her debut on the available page! This girl arrived into FBRN care when her canine brother was diagnosed with IVDD. Her previous family made the tough decision to rehome Macie so that her canine brother could recover and they could focus on his rehabilitation. Try as they might, Macie’s previous family couldn’t keep the dogs separated and Macie’s attempts at Frenchie wrestling with her brother were not helping his recovery.
Macie previously had a small tumor that was removed with clean margins. Her new family should keep an eye out for any lumps and be sure to get them checked-out by their vet. Macie takes Benadryl twice a day and Pepcid once a day. Aside from these things, Macie is a healthy and active girl.
Macie has been around other dogs and has gotten along great with them. She currently lives in a child and cat free home. Due to her high prey drive, her forever home should be one without cats. You see, Macie is a professional lizard hunter! She loves being outside and sniffing the ground, and if it moves, she wants to wrangle it. This girl is constantly moving, but when she needs a nap, she knows how to put herself into her crate.
Speaking of her crate, Macie isn’t a big fan. If she knows you’re home and out doing cool things without her she will bark constantly. It’s the same if she thinks you went outside to lizard hunt without her! She’s fine to be in her crate if you have to do any cleaning or other chores though, and she likes to sleep in her crate at night. She’s also fine with a little crate time if you think she’s had a bit too much stimulation from watching the outdoor critters.
Macie is still working on her potty training skills. She doesn’t currently signal that she has to go out which has led to a couple accidents. Macie will do her business outside, but she doesn’t seem to have a schedule. Frequent trips outside will be needed to prevent indoor accidents.
You might be wondering about Macie’s personality. Well, she’s a pretty easy going gal and she is a ladies man. Macie loves men, but she will also cuddle up to her foster mom when her foster dad isn’t around. Macie could do well with either a first time Frenchie owner or an experienced one. When it comes to kids, we think older and dog savvy children would be great. Macie tends to get over-stimulated so a family who understands how to keep her calm would be best. Macie absolutely adores antlers and will chew on a new antler or something similar until her little heart is content.
Macie would do best in a single story house or one with minimal stairs as she tends to favor the leg she had surgery on (even though the vet checked it and there’s nothing wrong). Macie should be in a home that has a securely fenced yard to help her do her business. Macie loves evening strolls and walks, but she tends to get too involved in nature and forgets to potty while on her walks. Macie would do best in a home with someone who works from home or has the ability to pop-in mid-day to let her out. Macie would love venturing to the office with you, but if you’re near the door you should have a way to gate off any entrances and exits to keep her safe.
Macie’s foster mom had this to say about her: “This sweet girl loves to cuddle in her donut bed, get pets, and snuggle up to you when it’s time to wind down for the day. She has a ton of energy and is a complete joy to have in our home. She has some quirks that make her even more lovable and she loves being outside when the weather cooperates and isn’t too hot.”
If you think you’re ready for a lizard huntin’ Frenchie to make her way into your home, all you need to do is click on the link and apply for Macie. After that be ready to pick her up should you be selected as her 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.
