Luna has no known health issues. She should remain on her current diet and supplements.
It’s been said that if big dogs realized they were big, they would eat us, and if little dogs realized they were little, they would be eaten. No dog illustrates this more than little Luna, a pocket-sized Frenchie who weighs in at only ten pounds (!). Despite being smaller than most Easter hams, Luna is clearly oblivious to her petite size. She loves playing tug with her 50-pound foster sibling and hanging out with a 120-pound Newfoundland buddy.
Luna was surrendered to FBRN when her previous family moved into a new living situation that did not allow her to join them. She has quickly settled into her foster home and passed her veterinary exam and introductions to her foster dog sibling with flying colors. News from the vet was good -- Luna is a healthy girl with no known health issues at this time.
What Luna lacks in poundage, she more than makes up for in personality. Her foster mom says she “oozes” personality and loves hamming it up with her humans, playing with other dogs, and generally brightening the day of anyone lucky enough to encounter her.
At just over a year old, Luna still has some of her puppy energy that she burns off with romps around the back yard and the aforementioned tug sessions. She also loves her frequent walks around the neighborhood where she charms and captivates everyone she meets. When she's not running around, Luna is happy to settle in for a good chew session with her tiny stuffed duck and watch bad television with her people.
Luna loves humans even more than she loves other dogs (and she LOVES other dogs). Because of her social nature, she would do best in a home where she can be the center of attention and join her humans on their adventures. If her people work outside the home, Luna can stay in her crate while they're gone, but will definitely need midday breaks to go outside, stretch her dog legs and conduct her business. Her high cuteness factor and exceptional portability could make her an ideal office dog and she would certainly love the opportunity to be around her people all day.
Luna has not been living with children in her foster home, but foster mom says she has done well with kids she has met on her daily walks. A home with dog-savvy kids 10 and older would be fine for little Luna. She also does well with cats, so catified homes are encouraged to apply as well. Luna would be just fine for a first-time Frenchie owner or a dog-experienced home. If you are a first-timer, let us know what YOU know about the special needs of Frenchies on your application.
Luna is both crate- and house-trained, although like any dog, she may backslide a little bit in her new home while she adjusts to a new family and living situation.
Luna’s foster mom is clearly over the moon for this girl. (See what we did there?) Here’s what she had to say about this little nugget: “Little Luna (aka. Looney-Tunes, The Nugget, or Luna-Tuna) is a happy little goofball who has brought a lot of laughs to our family! She's active and curious and would really love a family that wants to take her along with them on their adventures. Busy bee by day, couch-napper by night, Luna is pretty adaptable to all situations, but we'd love to see her in a family where she can be showered with attention and the love she deserves! Luna is a daily dose of funny antics, snorts and snuffles!”
If you think you need a little Luna in your life (and really, who doesn't?), click on the link above to apply. If you are chosen to adopt this little biscuit, you will need to journey to Vermont where she is currently living. Her petite packaging could make it possible for her to fly in an airplane cabin on the way home, although we suspect she would also love the opportunity to see the country while road-tripping her way home.
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, so adopters are expected to pick up their dogs from their foster family.
