The handsome, cream dream Bart has made his way onto the available page. Bart came to FBRN after he was surrendered by a good Samaritan who took him in when his original owners could no longer keep him. Try as they might, this good Samaritan couldn't get a handle on his weight loss and regurgitation issues. Bart is also a master escape artist and it was feared that he might one day escape the yard, which would have dire consequences since he lived off a busy street.
Bart arrived to FBRN with an ear infection, which was treated and cured. He also had his nares and palate done. When he first got to his foster home, he was marking everything. With his neuter on 08/26, this has been remedied and he is accident free.
Bart is a laid back, submissive, happy camper. He is smart and learns what is expected of him quickly. He enjoys walks around the block and will turn on high gear if necessary to power walk. Bart loves car rides, the AC, playing ball, and his toys. He is housebroken and crate trained. He gets along well with other dogs. Bart hasn't been around younger kids, but he enjoyed the time he spent with older children. A Houdini-proof fenced yard is required, but if you live in an apartment and there are a couple of doors between your front door and the busy street, let us know.
Bart could thrive in any type of situation as long as he was loved by his humans. He could adjust to going to the office with someone; he accommodates himself to whatever situation he encounters. He loves people and does well during the work day, but he prefers to be with his people. He would enjoy the companionship of other friendly dogs, so if you work and the budget will allow, doggy day-care could be a good way for Bart to get his yayas out while he gets to play with dogs and people. A mid-day home visit from a dog-walker would be lovely.
Bart's foster family had this to say about him:"Bart does not like the heat! He will fall asleep in front of the AC vent and just let it blow on him. Don't turn on the shower to warm the water and leave the shower door open unless you want Bart to get in the shower. He always curls up in his bed and sleeps by us all night."
If you're looking for a companion who loves the AC as much as you do, then look no farther than Bart. He's waiting for a family that will give him all the love his little heart can handle. All you need to do is fill out an application and be ready to pick him up should you be selected.
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.
Bart has brachycephalic airway syndrome. He had nares and palate resection with neuter in August. He must wear a harness when going for walks, never a collar or choke chain, and his breathing should be monitored. He also had a benign skin tag removed that must be monitored for recurrence.
Bart you are in a good place! Good luck buddy.Annette Thornburgh
