Yippee! Spin is available for adoption! This four-year-old cutie is looking for his perfect forever family. Spin comes from a commercial breeder and thankfully, has no medical or physical concerns.
Spin is a very sweet youngster with typical mischievous tendencies. He loves to play and throw his toys around to get attention. After doing his business, Spin will chase his ball all around the backyard. Inside the home, Spin is your typical shadow Frenchie who follows his foster mom around, so close that he sometimes bumps into her legs! Like all youngsters, Spin is very curious and gets excited by any activity. After he tires himself out with play, Spin loves to snuggle in his human’s lap, curled up like a little donut.
Spin can get very excited by hands and exhibit mouthy puppy-like behavior! He does not have a bite history; however, his forever home will need to reinforce that bitey-play-time is best with toys and not hands. Currently, Spin lives with children aged 3 to 10 years and gets along very well with them! Dogs should always be monitored around children, and Spin will also need close supervision around food. Spin gets very close to faces (dogs and people) when there is food around. He is simply sniffing, but will need to learn how to give some space. Lucky for us, Spin is super smart and responds well to positive reinforcement training.
Speaking of training, Spin is still working on potty training. He still has an occasional accident and exhibits some marking behaviors in the house. And now for our TMI Warning: Spin is a feces eater!! He does not discriminate between his own, other dogs’, and even rabbits’ poop in the yard. His forever family will need to understand this behavior and be diligent with monitoring and correcting it.
Despite his unrefined palate, Spin is a very special dog who deserves the perfect home. He will thrive in an environment where he can play a lot and receive oodles of attention. A family with children would be great, though he may do best in an adult home with a person who could commit to daily walks, training, and playtime. Spin would do great in a home with submissive dogs who could be patient of his curious and often puppy-like behavior.
Currently, Spin is left at home during the day three times a week and does fine, although he requires extra playtime and walks on those days. Spin would do great in an office with a cozy bed and a couple toys. He can be anxious in the car but typically settles down after a few minutes. His forever family should be prepared to transport him via car from his foster home as he is too big to fly.
Foster mom has this to say: “Spin warms my heart. He is a lover and protector. He literally jumps into my arms when I pick him up to go outside and has the silliest, playful personality. His snuggles are so sweet and he begs for them often. I can’t walk around the house without him following behind me, bumping my legs with his head and body. He’s got places to go and things to discover. Spin makes me laugh every day.”

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.
