Bayou Brings the Fun

Brand-new foster girl Bayou is reveling in her new stash of toys and treats from an FBRN volunteer and her frogdog who found out Bayou needed some grain-free treats to keep her itchies at bay, plus some toys and a new harness and lead!  It's all for Bayou!  Doesn't she look thrilled?
Bayou spends most of her day trying to figure out how to get someone to offer her a tummy rub, but she also enjoys hanging out and watching a little tv.
In addition to a skin infection related to allergies, her ears are being treated for yeastie beasties who took up residence and don't pay rent!  No squatters!  We don't want any fungus among us.
Once her skin is cleared up, Bayou will be undergoing a spay surgery. Meanwhile, she'll be taking up an exercise regimen to bring her figure down to a svelte 17 or 18 pounds, down from her current zaftig 21.  The weight loss might help with her breathing, which is not terrible but could be better.

Her foster mom reports that Bayou is the happiest little Frenchie in all of the great state of Texas!  She got to go to work with her foster mom and stole every heart in the joint.  Bayou will be on the foster page later this week.  Look for her sweet face and a funny video of Bayou yodeling for upsies onto the couch!

Blondes really do have more fun, sighs

Declan is Available!

The handsome and charming Declan is on the available page!

At 18 months old, Declan is still a puppy.  He's got a few quirks, like thinking he's big enough to take on the Newfie at the park, but with dogs his own size and on his own turf, he's just a playboy.

Declan should go to a home where he will be well-secured.  He and a partner in crime got loose in his original family and they attacked a dog in the neighborhood.  Little kids are likely to leave doors and gates unlatched, so we are looking for a dog-savvy family with older children if there are kids in the home.

His foster mom wrote us a note to update us on Declan.  This is what she said:

"Sweet Declan, the Frenchie-saurus has moved to the available page! I think he will make someone such a wonderful dog.
He is so happy and laid back in the house, but on walks he still gets overly exited when he sees other dogs. He seems to want to play with the smaller dogs, but he acts like he wants to eat the big dogs, so he needs to go to a home with dogs his size or smaller.

He gets along wonderfully with my frenchies and my other FBRN foster Emry, and even my parents' two tiny 4lb chihuahuas. He comes to work with me almost every day and loves hanging out with me and his foster sister, Tilly."

If you have been looking for a healthy young frogdog, and you can travel to Nebraska, consider applying for Declan, advises
