Hang onto your hats folks; Riggs has made his available page debut! This handsome pied boy was tearfully surrendered due to his prior owner’s personal health concerns. After a short time in foster care, Riggs is now ready to find his perfect forever family.
Unlike many Frenchies, Riggs is very fortunate to not have any medical concerns or allergies. None. Nada. Zero. Zippo! However, foster mom gives him fish oil in his food daily to keep up his shiny coat and great skin. Riggs is a smart boy who knows basic commands like ‘sit’ and ‘come’. He is also crate trained and potty trained. However, Riggs is not great on leash and could use a little more training in that department.
Prior to arriving in FBRN care, Riggs was reportedly involved in a dog attack and has shown to be fearful of other dogs. Foster mom has been working hard to build-up Riggs’ confidence and believes he would benefit from and enjoy another calm, similarly sized, dog in his forever home. Slow introductions are always important, but for Riggs, slow introductions are essential…and potential adopters should be aware that Riggs may never be a dog park kinda guy. While there are no children in his foster home, Riggs does fine with children when he’s out and about. For their safety, we must say no to any felines as Riggs has not been exposed to them while in foster care.
Riggs is a self-proclaimed loafer who loves to snooze the day away on the couch. Like most Velcro dogs, he will follow you around the house – unless he can see you from his favorite spot on the couch! Riggs loves to be petted and have his belly rubbed and he also enjoys short bursts of play time. While he doesn’t play fetch, he will happily bring you his toy as a gift.
While any Frenchie would love his very own yard for a quick zoomie, Riggs doesn’t require it. His ideal family would be active and willing to take him to the park, walks around the block, or even a trip to the hardware store! Riggs just wants to be part of the family. A family who is committed to working on Riggs’ leash manners would be wonderful, so if you have skills in that department, please tell us more. Riggs has been left alone for up to 7 hours and done just fine, so while we’re sure he’d love it, he doesn’t require a stay-at-home or work-from-home person.
Riggs would be the most perfect office dog. He would love to stay near his person in a comfy bed all day! And while he wants to see and be near his person, he doesn’t need to have all of your attention, all of the time – so you’d actually be able to get some work done!
Riggs is a very sweet and loving dog who deserves the best in his next chapter. Foster mom has this to say, “Riggs has so much love to give his person/people. He just wants to be a part of your adventures and your family.”
If you think Riggs is the right fit for you, please submit an application today and tell us why! Then get ready to travel because FBRN does not ship dogs as cargo, so adopters are expected to pick up their dogs from their foster family. Riggs is too large to fly in cabin, but he’s a great co-pilot for a road trip!
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.
