Help me, Ronda! Help, help me Ronda! The Beach Boys might have been trying to get over someone, but we think it's Ronda you won't be able to get outta your mind once you see just how fine she is!
Ronda was surrendered to FBRN when the folks who rescued her from a shelter realized that she has a very high prey drive. So high, in fact, that we beg you not to ask us what happened to the poor bunnies Ronda got a hold of. Ronda was rescued from a shelter and her previous owners spent lots of time and money getting her healthy.
She has pretty bad allergies that are currently managed by a regimen of Atopica, medicated baths, supplements and a limited ingredient diet. Her new forever family will need to be willing to maintain Ronda on this regime and work with their veterinarian on keeping Ronda itch-free. Ronda also has chronic dry eye. She’s on daily eye drops for this and will need to be on them the rest of her life.
Don't let any of that scare you, however, because Ronda is one charming gal! She loves attention and really looks forward to her evening constitutional! Her foster mom says that she is a happy girl who loves to chew her bones and play with her toys, She loves to cuddle up in her blankets and take a nice snooze!
Ronda does have resource guarding issues, food and toy aggression. Because of this, Ronda would do best as an only dog and be someone’s one and only. Because of her prey drive, Ronda will also not be placed in a home with cats or any other small critters.
A couple, a single person, or a family with older kids would all be great for Ronda. While a fenced yard is preferred, she'd do okay in an apartment as long as she is taken out regularly. Ronda is completely housebroken but does need to stay on schedule. If you work outside the home, a mid-day potty break would be a must. A dog walker or a visit from her loving forever parent would be required.
Ronda is crate trained and when foster mom runs errands, she crates Ronda. Oh, and she's one of those rare Frenchies with a bit of mountain goat in her; she has scaled a baby gate with ease.
Ronda would do best with a stay-at-home parent or someone who could take her to work with them. She loves attention and really desires to be around her people. An office setting in which there are no other dogs or animals would be great.
Ronda's foster mom has fallen hard for this sweet gal and has a special message for her potential foster family:
"Ronda is sooooo sweet. She gives lots of kisses and will put her head in your lap. She tries to climb up your legs to say hi when you come in. She deserves a family that will put her first. She just wants to please and be loved. She will nibble you gently if she wants a pet. She tolerates her meds and bath very well. She takes a little bit of time to warm up to new people and is learning to be cuddled in a lap."
Is Ronda the missing piece to your puzzle? Then fill out an application and plan on a trip to sunny So Cal because Ronda will not be shipped!
FBRN does not ship dogs as cargo. Except in rare or unusual cases, adopters are expected to pick up their dogs from their foster family. In rare or unusual cases, FBRN may be able to assist in transporting a dog to a volunteer near the adopter's home, but the expense of transporting the dog must be the responsibility of the adopting party.
FBRN dogs are in foster care in people's private homes. For the foster families' safety, we do not disclose specific locations, and we don't 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.
