“Alexandra is super sweet and super affectionate and loving. She is, in typical Frenchie fashion, quite demanding. Her forever family should be prepared to give her lots of attention!”
Alexandra is dog aggressive and must remain an only dog. 

Her name is Alexandra, and she is indeed Great! But fighting fiercely and laying waste to armies isn’t exactly her style—she’s more into snuggling fiercely and laying on laps. If you’ve got arms for hugging and hands for petting (and a home without any other dogs), Alexandra just might be the one for you.

Alexandra came to FBRN when her original owners divorced, and neither was able to find housing that permitted canine companions. Ironically, Alexandra is on board with those meanie landlords—she doesn’t like dogs either, and acts in a most un-ladylike fashion when she sees them coming. For that reason, Alexandra will only go to a home where she can be her family’s one and only, the sole apple of their eye, l’enfant unique . . . you get the picture. Alexandra thinks this arrangement works out quite well, as this means that she gets ALL the things, be they pets, belly rubs, treats, toys, or smooches to her black smushy face.

At 2 years old, Alexandra is healthy and in fantastic shape, and should remain on a high quality diet with supplements to keep her that way. She is currently doing well on Farmina brand. She loves playing with her toys—tug o’ war being her favorite—and is always up for a ramble around the block. And if your phone battery dies during the night and you miss your alarm, no worries—Alexandra will be there to remind you that it’s time for her morning walk. (“More reliable than a rooster, and at least three times as cute,” says Alexandra.)

Like many Frenchie girls, Alexandra can at times put the “bull” in “bulldog”—she can be stubborn and doesn’t like to take no for an answer. Fortunately, her demands are simple—pets, pets, and maybe some more pets? She is a sweet, affectionate girl who is especially fond of cuddling. And while she makes a fantastic footwarmer, Alexandra would like to point out that she is even more adept at warming laps. (“You look chilly,” says Alexandra, “let me help you with that.”)

Any type of home would be fine for Alexandra, so long as she gets lots of attention and regular neighborhood walks, though a home in a busy, urban setting with dog-filled sidewalks is no good, nor is an apartment with lots of dogs in the hallways. (It should go without saying that she must always be on leash, and contact with other dogs should be avoided.) She would love it if her people were around during the day, but would also be fine staying at home alone during the workweek, so long as she gets a midday romp and potty break. Being an office dog really isn’t in the cards for Alexandra—her foster mom tried it out, but Alexandra was nervous and needy and just not that into it. She’d much rather be surrounded by the comforts of home. Four-legged critters of all kinds are a no-no, but kids suit Alexandra just fine and she wouldn’t mind having one of her very own. Any resident children should be old enough to understand that Alexandra can’t play with other dogs, and should not take her for walks unsupervised.

Alexandra’s foster mom is over the moon with her black-masked beauty, and says, “Alexandra is super sweet and super affectionate and loving. She is, in typical Frenchie fashion, quite demanding. Her forever family should be prepared to give her lots of attention!”

If you’re saying to yourself, “Hey! I have lots of attention to give!” then it might just be that Alexandra is the dog for you. Fill out an application to adopt her and tell us why you’d be the perfect match. Just be prepared to travel—Alexandra is tugging at rope toys and hearts in Northern California, and will not be shipped.

FBRN does not ship dogs as cargo, so adopters are expected to pick up their dogs from their foster family. 

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.



Hope your getting settled with foster family and hopefully you have pawtastic time there!!! Hi Alexandra! Enjoy your fabulous foster parents!!!! Love Lucy, Lucky, and Happy
