Feeling like a good burger? You’re in luck! A very good Burger has hit the available page and he’s looking for the grill to his cheese, the bun to his patty, the special sauce to his Big Mac…oops, getting carried away, but you get the idea. Burger is a sweet soul who endured bullying from other dogs in his first home. It was seen as best for Burger to give him a chance in a new home where he can be as comfortably submissive as he pleases and feels safe to express his personality. Burger is ready to take a chomp at life and sizzle down on his forever grill. There we go again….wait, one more! If you have your own Frenchie fry to call his new fur brother or sister, all the better!
Burger is still just a young puppy at only one year old. He probably celebrated his birthday just a couple of weeks ago with a backyard BBQ. At least, we’d like to think so. Where he’s in great health with his cute l'il limbs and paws, he makes up for in allergies. Burger is allergic to human epithelia and feathers so he must not sleep in a human bed and should avoid feather pillows and down blankets. Burger is also allergic to cats, so it’s important for him to not be around them. Burger has food allergies and must keep to a limited ingredient, non-kibble diet to keep the itchies at bay. Maintenance is key with Burger to keep him a smiling, playful boy.
While Burger is a sweet, happy-go-lucky boy most of the time, he has severe separation anxiety. Potential adopters will need to explain their experience with separation anxiety and how they intend to keep Burger as calm as possible at home. Burger will act out by destroying anything around him or by soiling himself and his area if he is left alone for too long. He also has resource guarding tendencies, which make monitoring while feeding and during playtime with toys a must.
Burger has a ways to go in the potty training department. Not too uncommon for a young pup, but he’s developed idiosyncrasies that are all Burger. For example, he is stubborn about doing his deeds while on a leash, so a fenced yard will be ideal with a Burger-shaped area all to himself. He does well if crated while on a car ride, but for reasons already explained, crating while away from him and the home is a challenge.
In regards to children in the home, Burger does not know how to distinguish between playing and hard nipping. He loves all humans, but needs a kid-free home or home with only older children so his rough playing does not result in bruises or unintentional knicks. Burger is also a lover of other dogs and would love nothing less than all-day playdates with other fur kids. But, his submissive side tends to stand out and he only does well when all other dogs are submissive as well. When he’s not playing, Burger is content as can be with a good chew toy, as long as he can see you, or snugglefest with his humans.
A household with someone home most of the time due to Burger’s separation anxiety will set him up best for success. Burger is vocal when his people are away, so homes without shared walls would be best. Because of Burger’s love for humans, he’d even make a wonderful office mascot to while away the daytime hours with.
Here is what Burger’s foster mom has to say: “Burger is just a big goofball who wants nothing more than to be on your lap. He’s been a constant source of love and entertainment for us, and has won over everyone he meets. He has his quirks, and they’re a lot to handle, but his kisses and snuggles are worth every mess and minute of it!”

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.
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.
Burger has several allergies including storage mites and must remain on his current diet, He is allergic to human epithelia and feathers so he must not sleep in the human bed, and must avoid feather pillows and down blankets. Burger is allergic to cats so he must never be around them.
Burger takes CBD oil for separation anxiety. He is also a resource guarder so must never be around small children. He must be monitored during feeding and when toys are present if there are other dogs around. A slow intro is required if there are other dogs in the home.
Potty training is a work in progress.
