Big boy Malcolm is ready to find the perfect forever home! Malcolm is all happy puppy energy at only two-years-old, and he’s looking for a home that has other other playful pups to get his zoomies on with. When he is isn’t playing with his favorite squeaky toys or antlers he loves to be right next to his people and fashions himself into a 38 pound lapdog whenever possible.
Malcolm is a very good boy and responds well to training. He is very kind to all other dogs and people that he meets. He even gets along with kitties too! He is crate trained but prefers to sleep in his bed instead of the crate when left alone. He is not destructive, and completely house trained. Malcolm can be left home alone for a few hours while his family is out at work.
Malcolm really enjoys spending his time outside, getting his zoomies on and exploring the yard. His new home must have a secure yard for him to play in and explore. Malcolm should always be supervised while outdoors as he enjoys chewing on sticks. His foster family keeps a lot of different toys in the yard to redirect his stick chewing efforts! Malcolm can thrive in any home as long as it is not an apartment. Apartment living wouldn’t be a good fit since Malcolm alert barks whenever he hears strange noises outside of the home. Malcolm could benefit from going to doggie daycare so he can play with other active pups during the day. Since Malcolm is so large, and so active, he should not live with small children as he could unintentionally knock them over when he is playing.
Malcolm has not been to the office with his foster family yet, but we think he would enjoy accompanying his person to the office. However, he has been known to knock over furniture and bump into people if he gets the zoomies indoors, so you might want to warn your co-workers! Malcolm is a big, happy, active boy with lots of love to share. So, if your office can handle an active boy, he’s certain to bring a smile to everyone’s face.
Like many Frenchies, Malcolm has allergies that will need to be managed for the rest of his life. His new family will need to continue his current allergy medications and keep up with regular vet check-ups. Malcolm eats a raw diet, has twice weekly medicated baths, takes a probiotic, and gets an allergy shot. He has severe allergies to chicken, peas, grass, and corn. He also has luxating patellas but does not need surgery for this issue at this time. Since Malcom has some allergies that require special care, families with previous Frenchie experience are preferred.
Malcolm’s foster family has this to share about him, “Malcolm has been a complete joy to have in our home. He is perfect in every way. Other than his allergies, and while his care is labor intensive, he more than makes up for it in snuggles. He is a very happy, well-adjusted boy who could thrive in almost any home. I hope a Frenchie savvy family with time and love and patience for his skin issues applies. I promise he’s worth the effort and has the kindest heart, and funniest personality. If you are fond of personal space, he’s not the dog for you. He likes to be “all in” with his people and may occasionally overstep trying to be a lap dog. If you’d love an affectionate, loyal, very good boy, who might sometimes think he’s a Chihuahua please apply.”
If you would like to adopt Malcolm, pack your bags and be prepared for a road trip to his foster home in Central Texas. Malcolm is too large to fly on a plane. Plus, it is best if he travels by car when the weather is cooler as he can easily overheat when it is hot outside. 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.
