Currently, Camille is simply loving life! She has found her groove and her comfort zone in her foster home and has become a completely different dog from when she arrived back into FBRN care.
Camille has settled into the routine with her foster dad quite well. She is offered a morning selection of 7 different dog treats – her foster dad quickly learned that duck jerky is her favorite. After morning treat time, Camille proceeds to spend her time looking out the window barking at the neighbor – how dare he work in his in his garden! After Camille tires of that, she sleeps until it is time for her 4 PM trip to the Post Office where she checks-in and says hello. After that, she strolls to the nearby hotel to begin her unofficial job as guest greeter. Camille makes sure to greet all new hotel guests while also keeping an eye out for other dogs on walks.
As she’s gotten older, Camille prefers a routine that involves more petting and less walking, but she still gets out for her daily walk. She also may spend more of her time rolling around than actually walking. Camille loves to roll around on rugs, grass, even pavement!
Seven years after her adoption, Camile’s adoptive parents were getting a divorce and Camile was returned to FBRN. Now thirteen years old, she was in rough shape and needed lots of TLC. Her ear was very badly infected. “The worst I’ve ever seen,” declared the vet. In addition she was suffering from giardia and dry eye.
With proper care from the vet and foster Dad’s TLC she is feeling ever so much better. But after all these years she is a diva who really does not care for the company of other dogs. Foster dad has the perfect set up for her as an only dog and the center of attention. At her age and having been returned once, we’re not going to force the issue. Camile will remain in FBRN, loved and cared for.
An adoption is always considered forever, but sometimes life happens. Camile’s people went through some difficult personal circumstances and had to return her to us for another chance at a forever family. But 11-year-old Camile seems used to some ups and downs–look at those ears!
Her foster family reports that she is adapting well and enjoying her new surroundings and her new human neighbors. So far, she has been unfriendly to dogs she has met, but she is tolerating her Frenchie foster sibling. She is house-trained and crate-trained, but of course she prefers to sleep in the big bed with everyone else!
As a senior, she appears to be relatively healthy, but it looks like she has some minor medical issues–itchy paws, a possible ear infection, and a dry eye. Hopefully these will be solved soon at her vet visit. To help her out, sponsor Camile, click on her photo. She would really appreciate it!
