We've got a new sailor man in FBRN! Such a cutie-pie, but is having some health issues. Here's the first note and photo we got on Popeye:

"As you can see from the picture, Popeye is a young, handsome brindle boy. He is intact at 3 yrs and other than arriving with horrible inflamed and oozing ears ( which may be the reason he is deaf) he has no known medical issues other than loss of hearing.
It is reported that the infection is under control, but there is a thickening of the ear canal.

Several weeks ago, his current owner ( Sophie) was driving in a neighborhood when she came upon a women with several dogs. She pulled over to inquire about the frenchie ( the dog literally stops traffic) and the woman told her she was trying to sell him on Craigslist. So Sophie made an impulse buy and purchased Popeye on the spot. Unfortunately, the timing is not right, she has a 4 month old baby, 2 dogs/female/male, a cat, a cockatoo, horses, works a home healthcare job and it's all too much.

Popeye is said to be a love, gets along and plays with the resident animals and snuggles with the human baby. He loves his people and his cuddles. His one flaw, he does mark, but is accustomed to wearing a belly band."

Unfortunately, the early reports of no known health issues were premature. Poor Popeye spent some time in the ER with a bout of vomiting, and was diagnosed with brachycephalic airway syndrome, diarrhea, worms, and an ear infection--prednisone and antibiotics were prescribed, and we are hoping to see some big improvements shortly!

Keep a good thought for this very sweet boy, asks
