Two-year-old Brooklyn was surrendered because his owner and partner couldn't afford his medical care, and as soon as he arrived at his foster home, he was whisked away to the vet. He is feeling much better, thank you, and is ready for the carefree life of a young Frenchie! He is on a freeze dried beef due to his allergy to storage mites and is taking one supplement, but no medications.
His owners told us that he likes other dogs and humans, although he has never lived with another dog, and his foster mom will give preference to a home where he can continue to be an only. Brooklyn definitely likes humans, oh my! One thing for sure is that he is very sweet-natured.
He is a perfect pup and a happy camper. He is fun, playful, and does not need lots of exercise. He is happy with a few playtimes, run-around in the backyard, and one or two walks a day. He is a typical Frenchie, who can be active/playful one moment, and a sweet, cuddly lapdog the next. Because he is motivated by food, Brooklyn is a quick learner. He is crate trained and potty trained. He had a few accidents when he first arrived at his foster home, but it was understandable since he was so seriously ill at the time. Since then, he has learned very quickly and had no accidents at all within a short period of time. A regular schedule of a potty break every 3 or 4 hours will reinforce this.
Brooklyn’s into chew toys, peanut butter filled bones, fetching, chasing, all parts of the usual puppy agenda! He is up for all of it and more! It would be an extra bonus if he is allowed to be around people and older kids--he lights up around them. Because he’s still young, he should be the only dog so he can get the attention he needs. We generally give preference to people who know the breed, but if you are inexperienced with Frenchies, his temperament would make Brooklyn a very good first Frenchie! You should study up on the breed, though, to impress his foster family during the interview.
An ideal home would have a fenced yard and someone to check in on him during the day, since he is still young and needs to be let out of the crate every 3 or 4 hours. He’s smart and adaptable, so you could take him to the office as well.
His foster family adores him, and they are so excited that he is finally discovering the joys of life after being so sick for much of his short life so far.
“What a sweet, loving, playful, good-natured pup he is! We all fell in love with him. He came to us so ill with severe ulcerative colitis, that we had to rush to the ER with him. Within two short months, he is a brand new, healthy, happy pup who is ready to have lots of fun with his forever family. I don't know what else to say besides, whoever adopts this little guy will be the luckiest family!”
Brooklyn is snuggling up to make it through the Massachusetts winter; be prepared to pick him up there if your application is 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
He's adorable, we'd love for Brooklyn to be a part of our family and to give him his forever home! Tom & Kriti
We wish you a speedy recovery. Bernadette Valladares

Our oldest daughter’s name is Brooklyn, so I think that means you’re destined to come live with us and our resident Frenchie when you’re ready! We would love to have you! Nicole Maccoy
