Little brindle beauty Mali is ready to find the perfect forever home! If you are looking for a sassy snuggler and have the time to devote to training a puppy, Mali could be the one for you. Mali was surrendered when she presented with cluster seizures, but since starting medication we’re pleased to report that she has yet to have another seizure.
Mali is a silly little girl and a typical Frenchie puppy. She is equal parts lively and loafer with a good old streak of Frenchie stubbornness thrown in as well. Mali loves playing with the resident pups in her foster home and spends most of her day zooming around the backyard. This girl has hops and is very agile, she can easily jump several feet off the ground. Her favorite toys are tug toys, balls, bones, and chew toys. Mali also loves to snuggle with her favorite people whenever she has the chance.
The perfect home for Mali is one that has someone home most of the day to continue working on her training. Mali is still a mouthy puppy and would do best in a home without young children. Mali’s new family should also be committed to her training. As mentioned, she is mouthy and can be nippy. She is also quite stubborn and needs a strong leader to set rule and boundaries. Potty training is still a work in progress and her new family will need to work on her training in this area. The perfect family for Mali is one with previous Frenchie experience. Mali needs a family with time and patience to continue teaching her manners and obedience. It would be wonderful if her new family has another active, playful, dog who will tolerate a silly puppy! Mali’s new home should have a fenced-in yard. This will be very helpful for continuing her potty training. With additional training, Mali might be able to go to the office with her new owners when she gets older.
Mali’s new family must continue managing her neurological issues/seizures. Her condition is currently managed with taking medication, Keppra, every 8 hours. Mali also has the unsavory habit of trying to eat her own poop. Her new family will need to pick up right after she goes to help eliminate this habit.
Mali’s foster family has this to share about her, “Mali has some quirks, but she is also very lovable and super cute. I think she will make a great pet for someone who has the time and knowledge to work with her. She can be very sweet and I will definitely miss her snuggles. She really loves to sleep right up against her humans.”
If you would like to adopt Mali, be prepared to travel. Mali is small enough to fly in cabin if her new family prefers to travel by air. Mali is being fostered in the Philadelphia area and will not be shipped. 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.
