Hear ye, hear ye! Sweet Rayne is ready to find her forever family. Rayne arrived in FBRN care after being released from a commercial breeder. At just three years old, she has plenty of love to share with her perfect forever family. Read on to see if that perfect family could be yours!
In terms of health, Rayne is a lucky girl with very few medical concerns. Like many Frenchies, she has some allergies and will need to continue taking supplements and probiotics to keep the dreaded itchies at bay. It is possible that Rayne has impaired hearing due to chronic ear infections, but this hasn’t been confirmed. Her forever family will need to maintain a frequent bathing and ear cleaning schedule to keep this sweet girl in tip-top shape.
As a former breeder, Rayne is understandably very timid. She gets scared when approached and pancakes to the ground. She’s still fearful of many things, but has come a long way since arriving in foster care! She loves to follow her foster mom around the house or sit quietly on her side of the couch when foster mom is watching TV. Rayne is a quiet, laid back girl who likes to be in the vicinity of her people. When she can’t be near her people, Rayne has been known to get into a bit of mischief. Nothing destructive, but she may remove her bedding from her crate, drag around an area rug, or maybe even steal a sock if one happens to be lolling around.
Rayne doesn’t enjoy loud noises and commotion and would do best in a quiet home with older children and mellow pets. She doesn’t seem to have a prey drive and has done well around the cat she met briefly, so we think a kitty companion would be a-okay. Rayne is fearful and shakes around other dogs, but warms up over time. We think she would be okay as an only dog, or with similarly-sized (or smaller) submissive dogs in her forever home.
Rayne is crate trained and potty trained. She doesn’t signal when she needs to go outside to potty, so she should be kept on a routine to avoid accidents in the house. She goes into her crate when she is scared or nervous, at bedtime, and also when her foster family must leave the house. She’s leash trained and walks pretty well on leash. She also doesn’t mind car rides and would love to accompany her person to work as long as the office was quiet and not too lively. The most important thing for Rayne is that her forever person be patient and willing to give her plenty of time to adjust to a new home and new routine.
Foster mom has this to say, “Rayne is a beautiful girl. She is extremely timid and will pancake when approached. She is still not coming to me when called. She stopped running away from me, but she does not want to come on her own yet. Rayne wants to be wherever I am. She is definitely my shadow, but she is not a lap dog. She will sit on the sofa with me but she stays on her end. Given time, I think she will warm up a lot more. She has come a long way since arriving from her previous life. She is very slow at coming out of her shell. We had a play date with a puppy, and she seemed to really enjoy that, they played for hours. She was very tolerant, possibly due to her having had litters of puppies. She seems to thrive in a quieter environment. She is very easy to have around.”
If you think Rayne is the perfect fit for your family, please submit your application today! Then get ready for a road trip to Southeastern Pennsylvania if you’re selected. 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 do not 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.
