His name is Barnaby!
“Barnaby is a slightly insecure but happy fellow who needs firm leadership to control excitability. His excitement is not displayed by jumping or racing around. He becomes excited by strange noises or by asking him to do something different. He will definitely challenge his new person after about 10 days but as long as they take charge right from the start he will settle in comfortably at his new home. He would love to have a nice housemate to spend all his time with and be his companion. He is a delightful and handsome boy. Barnaby is a love bug and wishes for his person to make rules and set boundaries so he doesn’t need to control his world. His eyes say how much he loves you and really just wants to please you. He will make a wonderful pet for the right person.”

Chet is a big boy.
Chet comes to us from a happy home, which unfortunately did not match the needs of this energetic young frog. At just over two years and a whopping 35 pounds, this big guy is all happy, playful boy, Frenchie kisses and Frenchie snuggles. If Chet had his way, he and his family would go for long runs then play for the other 23 hours in a day. And, like any stubborn little Frenchie, Chet is persuasive and determined to have it his way, so a dog savvy family is a must.

Her name is SUNDAE.
Her foster mom has really enjoyed having Sundae. “Sundae has been a pleasure to have in our home. She loves to be with people and has remained our constant shadow. She is very in tune with what we ask of her and tries her hardest. Sundae is great on walks. She is very respectful of our cat and learning to cope with our two rambunctious resident Frenchies. She loves to sit under your feet or on the couch and hang out. We have visited different places and she is GREAT with all new places and faces. She has had zero accidents in our home and is great about letting us know when she has to go. We really adore her and can’t wait for her to find a perfect home that can meet all her needs. I think with time and more exposure to new things her very minimal issues will subside.”

Here are a few words from her foster mom,“Colette is a lovable, sweet and fun girl! She loves to play and we’d like her to have a canine companion to romp around with. She also loves human affection and is happiest when she is with the family. She likes to cuddle and will happily take her place on your lap but is content on a dog bed on the floor at your feet as well. Colette seems to have lacked attention in her previous life and wants to make up for lost time. She is as precious as can be and just wants to play and be loved!”
If you’re looking for a perfect companion and lap warmer, then please consider applying for Colette today. Just be ready to head down to Central Texas to pick her up because even though this tiny girl would fit in a suitcase, she will not be shipped.

Imogene is the sweetest Frenchie and reminds us of the importance of enjoying the simple things in life. She thinks it’s swell to be able to lounge the day away on the couch or take a slow stroll around the block and admire the neighbor’s roses. After growing up in a puppy mill and having litter after litter of pups, this girl has learned to revel in the simple comforts of a clean couch cushion and a warm lap to snuggle on.

People I am in love with this dog!
“Winnie is such a fabulous tiny diva. She’s short and stout and loves to give the cat a piece of her mind. It’s been a great experience watching her come out of her shell and play with toys and chewies. I would definitely like to see her go to a home with another dog as she really takes her social cues from them. Watching her bat cow hooves across the hardwood floors and go scampering after them is quite comical. I would say she’s more of a tom boy and is still learning to be a lady. Just the other day she gave me a small kiss on the nose which was a huge step from her as she’s never given me a kiss in the 2 months we’ve had her. She tries really hard to follow all the rules and hops around and gets all snuffly when she knows she’s done something right. Overall she’s a very happy baby bulldog.”

Kingston has lived a difficult life but is ready for new horizons. Initially found wandering alone on Cape Cod in very rough shape, Kingston is now being fostered (and nursed back to health) by a loving family in Massachusetts. He has recently undergone a number of surgeries – to remove a non-cancerous tumor, to repair and remove some rotting teeth, and to neuter him – all of which he has recovered from wonderfully. He has even mostly overcome his tummy troubles after switching to a low-protein diet. While he still has some gas (what Frenchie doesn’t?) and occasional loose stool, he is improving steadily and has somehow maintained a happy and loving disposition throughout.
Kingston is a pretty low-key little guy. He walks well on the leash, but is equally happy to just go in and out for bathroom trips while relaxing the day away with his people indoors. He does very well with other dogs and is submissive to any remotely dominant doggy brothers or sisters. He loves to spend time with his foster parents lounging around the house, and would be a great fit for anyone who doesn’t want a high-energy dog. While this means that apartments are fine, as he doesn’t require tons of space, it also means that he would do well with someone who is home most of the time. Alternatively, he would make a great office dog for someone who has the freedom to bring their dog with them to work. He would also be okay being left crated in the company of other dogs.
In all, Kingston makes a great companion! He loves to go on trips in the car. He gets along with other all other pets. He is house-broken and crate-trained. His only dislike is nail-clipping, which should be left to the vet in order to avoid any negative reactions. He is very smart and has learned to use a doggy-door at his foster home, and though he doesn’t have a grasp of all the common commands, his foster family is certain that with some work he will have no problem mastering them. He just needs the right person to come along and help him forget all the suffering in his past. Kingston is a resilient and deserving little guy with lots of love to give. He will make it worth your while!

Smeagol, one of the first puppy mill dogs FBRN rescued as part of the NC10, has passed away. He lived far longer than anyone had a right to expect, with a heart full of worms and a history of shocking neglect. As FBRN’s unofficial mascot, Smeagol had the power to rally our volunteers, and he had an enormous following on Facebook.
This morning, his mom posted this final photo of Smeagol and these sad words.
“It is with a shattered and very heavy heart we must share the news with our family and friends of Smeagol's journey to the Rainbow Bridge. Our silly little French man made the peaceful transition last night and our house has fallen silent with out his precious little snores, his flat, fat paws and stubby little legs trotting from room to room or his one of a kind talkative voice demanding our undivided attention. There will never, ever be another character like Smeagies and he has forever changed mine, Trey and our pups lives. ♥ We'll always love you, Smeagie Weegie Woo! ♥”
Look at this beautiful Keiko up for adoption at FBRN. Click photo for more details.
Here’s a quick word from her foster mom:
Keiko is a very sweet girl who just wants to be loved. She will sit herself down on your lap facing you and slowly work her way up your chest so that she is lying with her head resting on your shoulder like a baby. I think she would sleep for hours like this if her person would let her. She gets along great with my other two dogs and would make a great companion for humans and canine alike.
In short, this easygoing girl will easily adapt to a home where she’s considered part of the family and is allotted plenty of cuddle time.
If you think Keiko sounds like the right girl for you, please submit an application. She’ll be waiting patiently in her Washington foster home.
