Handsome as his namesake, McQueen has made his way to the available page. This black masked fawn hunk was surrendered to FBRN when his previous family could no longer afford medical care.
McQueen has recently started to exhibit some allergy-related issues. His eyes are watering, and he has developed tear stains from this, and his nose appears to be red from rubbing it on anything possible to scratch the itch. He should remain on his current diet. He is allergic to wool, so he must avoid any wool rugs or blankets that might be in the home. He also had a previous belly button hernia that was noted in his vet records and on coming into FBRN. His potty training is a work in progress. If he is left alone in his room where he has free run, there will be accidents and there are sometimes accidents in his crate.
Now for the good news about this available fellow! McQueen is reported to get along well with all ages of children. He also likes all of the dogs that he has been introduced to.
You might be thinking that he got his name from being speedy and having high activity like Lightning McQueen. That couldn't be further from the truth. In fact, he was named after Steve McQueen. He is a busy fellow, but not very active. He enjoys his daily walks, but would love a fenced area to get all of his energy out. After eating breakfast, McQueen loves to entertain himself by going to his crate and grabbing all his babies and toys and throwing them in the air to catch them himself. He loves to run zoomies with his housemate Jovie. He loves Nylabones, crunchy squeaky toys, and he does not like balls. McQueen has an entertaining temperament and affectionate disposition. At night he loves to cuddle on the couch for some TV time. He loves everything and everybody! He has never been seen to react negatively in any situation.
McQueen has a wish list of items that he's looking for in a forever home. He would love to have another fur sibling to play with. He needs a fenced yard so that he doesn't decide to bolt and take a trip around the neighborhood. He would love children, and first time Frenchie owners would be just fine. They would just need to understand the dangers of extreme temperatures and over-exercise for smushy faces. He would love someone that could be home with him daily. He can be quite vocal if left in his crate and he is missing his humans or is bored, so apartment life would not be best. He might be able to go to the office with someone when he matures, but right now he is into everything at his foster mom's home office.
McQueen's foster mom had this to say about him: "McQueen deserves the best because he simply is a WONDERFUL dog. I've had many French bulldogs through my home and owned three of my own and have never seen one this well rounded. One of the cutest things he does is when he comes in from outside he will run at top speed into his crate, spin around and plop down his bottom. He thinks he will get a treat for doing this (and he does). He's just adorable. Another endearing thing to me is that he's kinda freaked out by thresholds and he will take his sweet time deciding when to enter. When he does, he flies in, sliding and careening his way usually running into cabinets, water bowls, anything in the way and sends it flying. Again, too cute. He's as close to perfect as they come and he deserves the best home possible!!"
If you're looking for a handsome man to fill the hole in your heart, look no further than the dreamy McQueen. He loves car rides and is waiting for the perfect home to fill out an application for him. All you have to do is be ready to pick him up, if you are selected to be his forever home.
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.
McQueen has several allergies, including wool, so adopters should take care to keep him away from wool rugs or blankets. It will help him to stay on his current food. Applicants should know that McQueen's housebreaking is a work in progress.
Good luck you beautiful little munchkins! Lynn Jacobson
