“Victor has the best personality. He loves hard, plays hard and naps hard. He’s so happy to see you every time you walk into the room – you’re his favorite celebrity. He has a lot to offer his forever family including training them in the art of snuggles and belly scratches. Victor is happiest when sleeping in your bed by your side. He loves a good chew bone and will never say no to a treat. He might need a bit more preventative care than the average 7-month-old pup, but don’t let that hold you back because he certainly isn’t. He is definitely the stuff Frenchie dreams are made of.”

Welcome 7-month-old brindle heartthrob, Victor, to the available page! He was surrendered after being adopted from then returned back to a puppy mill because of an abnormal gait. It appears that he broke his elbow at a very young age, and it was left untreated. While in foster care, an orthopedic specialist evaluated Victor and determined that it would cause more harm than good to attempt to operate this far out from his original injury.
Outside of his gait, Victor seems to be a pretty healthy pup. He has had ear infections so he should be monitored for recurrence. He takes Dasuquin and Omega 3E as preventatives, but does not need a special diet. Victor is a puppy and potty training is still very much a work in progress. At his age, someone that can let him out frequently would be ideal so he can master going potty outside.
Victor’s foster mom reports that, “he is the main attraction in his own personal Frenchie parade.” He wants someone to watch him, and he wants to be on the move, checking out everything that moves in his vicinity. He’s a puppy and he thinks that all the toys are his, all the beds are his, and all laps are his. When he finds a spot to sit, he expects scritches to be on the way. Of course, as busy as he is, long walks and major exercise are not on his agenda. Bone chewing and snuggles are high on his list. If Victor has a short-coming at all, it is that he is very vocal with his displeasure of being left alone.
Victor’s ideal home would be a single-story house with a fenced yard. His barking might not fit into an apartment setting, and he is lazy about having to walk too far to go potty. Stairs are not good either due to his prior front leg injury. People and animal wise, Victor loves everyone, adults and dog-savvy children, and every furry friend. He might do well with an older dog who could help teach him how to be a model puppy citizen. Most of all, Victor just wants someone around him.

FBRN does not ship dogs as cargo, so adopters are expected to pick up their dogs from their foster family. Victor would love to have you fill out an application and perhaps get to pick him up and take him to his forever home. Victor would do fine with a longer car ride as long as there were potty breaks along the way.
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.
Victor had neuter surgery on 11/15/2023.
Victor is an active puppy and potty training is a work in progress.
Victor has a history of ear infections that should be monitored for recurrence.
Victor has a permanent limp from his front left elbow due to a sustained injury when he was a puppy. An orthopedic specialist consult indicated that if pain develops in the future that can not be managed, he may need to be evaluated for amputation, but that is unlikely and would only be an absolute last resort. It is more likely he may require physical therapy, acupuncture and/or cold laser treatments. He should remain on Dasuquin supplements and Omega 3E.
For Victor! My Frenchie got off to a rough start and he’s fine but he would like a sibling. We are rooting for you! Patti.
For Victor Patti.
For Victor, your ear reminds me of my late best friend. Hoping we get the opportunity to meet.
