If you have ever seen pictures of a nebula in space, you’ll know why our Nebula is so aptly named. This gorgeous, three-year-old girl was surrendered because she wasn’t getting along with the female dog in her previous home. She has done well in foster care with kids and other puppers and is now available and ready to find her forever family!
Nebula is an active, energetic, bundle of adolescence. She’s not much for resting and you’ll probably find her exploring the house like a busy little bee rather than lying down. She loves balls, toys, Nylabones, and playing tug with other dogs. She likes to play rough and rowdy! Nebula has meshed particularly well with the two male canines in her foster home and gets along with the like-sized, docile female. Given her history, it would be best to go to a home with only male counterparts, or a completely neutral/submissive female. We think a family with other dogs would be a great match so that Nebula has a constant companion(s) to help with her anxiety.
Nebula is crate trained and enjoys sleeping in one at nighttime as long as it is in the same room as her humans. She drools and exhibits some anxiety when crated and left alone during the day, and has done much better sequestered in a room with a baby gate. If left alone too long though, we cannot guarantee your doors will remain intact (she chewed on a closed door when foster mom had to leave her once for six hours). Considering this, Nebula’s ideal home would be where someone works from home or isn’t gone for more than several hours at a time. She might be able to adapt to an office, but remember she is a busy little bee so your coworkers (and boss) would have to love a wandering Frenchie who potentially visits everyone at their desks. Come on, who wouldn’t want that?
Nebula absolutely loves people and kids. She enjoys being carried around the house by her teenage human foster siblings. Due to her energy level, older, at least elementary aged kids, are probably the best matches for Nebula. When overly excited, she can become a little bit nippy but she’s easily redirected. A fenced yard is required – Nebula’s curiosity takes her all over, sniffing and exploring. She loves her outside time and will thrive if able to safely spend some time in a secure yard. Currently, foster mom takes Nebula on two walks per day and she is getting better about being calm (and not jumping) while having her harness fastened.
Foster mom says, “Nebula is a sweet girl that has been passed around too much (we are the third home). She needs a stable environment with a routine to reduce her anxiety. Once she got our routine down, she has been great. She loves to be around people and other dogs and is so fun to play with!”
If you are looking for an active pup who is ready for adventure, please apply for this little nugget today. Nebula is an exemplary car passenger, and while she may fit in an under-the-seat carrier in-cabin on a plane, her anxiety in a crate/carrier might pose a problem. So, get ready for a summer road trip to Texas if chosen as Nebula’s new family. She can’t wait to screen all the apps, from the arms of her foster sister, of course. 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.
