About Frankie D7048 (was D2682

Frankie came into FFR on 6/8/11 for our help to find her a new adoption home. Frankie is a very special dog. She comes from an abusive past and has flourished despite her past treatment. She is very curious yet cautious of new experiences. She does have high prey drive to other dogs and needs to be on leash at all times for control outside of her home. She has learned to play with toys and sleep in her crate. She is very smart and tries to avoid when she knows it’s time to do something she doesn’t want to do so we are working on her obedience manners. Frankie hasn’t had a lot of attention in her short life so she is very reluctant to let you stop petting her. With supervision she ignored the foster home's cat & fine with same size male dog. Frankie needs a very experienced pack leader guardian to train her. Adult home. No kids. Update: Frankie is doing great at her trainer/boarding home. She went out for a social walk at a park and streets and she was great meeting new people. She ignored other barking dogs but did bark at dogs at a store. She needs a forever very experienced home. Best as the only dog to continue her training. We are paying for her boarding with a trainer/boarding home. 9/30/20 update: Finally Frankie is in an experienced foster home for her golden years. Doing great.

Poor Brandie (see my other photos & watch my video new video!) was neglected matted thin had no vet care and lived in a backyard. She was shy and nervous at the shelter and hid in the corner of her cage. With time staff were able to take her out and carry/pet her. She was ok and ignored other dogs but too distracted to interact. She has had no training and is under-socialized. She needs time to get healthy with holistic/fresh foods learn home training and get groomed. More info. to come while she gets TLC at her foster home. NOTE: She needs a very experience adult home with yard. No other dogs. Growls at other dogs. No kids. She has fear issues. 8/24/20 update: Brandie is very scared at her foster home and will growl when approached by them or their small dog. She needs time to decompress get healthy learn 'home living' and to trust people. She will not walk on leash. Needs grooming and then her spay surgery. Brandie will need weeks to month of rehab so she will not be available for a few weeks to month. No apartments for her. She needs experienced adult home with attached backyard for potty biz. No apt. In a few weeks when she feels safe and we learn more about her personality we will contact matching applicants. She needs a very experienced guardian and adult home only. 9/7/20: Video of her finally feeling safe and happy. Still using pee pads and learning house-training. She is still scared to be leashed and won't go out for walks yet. She is great with husband. Still afraid of collar and won't walk on leash. Need to work on house-training to go to yard. Need very patient and experienced guardian. She growls at the foster home's dog still. So home with no other dog. 10/11/20: Now with single lady foster home. She warmed up with foster mom. Active inside home. Need home with yard to continue to try to get her out. Still using pee pads in the house and afraid to be leashed for walks. She is still fearful of other dogs and will growl at them. Will need more time. Need very experience adult-only home. 10/29/20: She is now totally relaxed at home but she is not the cuddle type she ran away when trying to hug her. She is comfortable going out to the yard by herself now. We just started to have short walk outside the house about 10 minutes she was very scared at first shaking and pooping. But after a while she is ok. She is not good with toys. She chewed off pieces tried to swallow. She likes to play with the tennis ball. Also she runs away each time I have something on hand except food. She has a collar now it still takes a while to hook on the leash. Seems not possible to wipe her or comb her. She can go to bathroom indoor and outdoor. But for outdoor there must be no access to the wee pad then she will go outside. If she has a choice she will use the pad. I left the patio door open so she can go anytime. There are home visits with other dogs she was very scare and hide away. She is definitely a work in progress still but has come a long way. 12/22/20: Brandie is now going out to walk no problem. We go out two times a day. She is not a cuddle type as of now she stays on my lap for about 8-10 minutes and wants to go back to the floor. Not ready for belly rub. I tried to clean her paws after walks she is not happy and growls and tried to nip. Her bed is her territory once she is in she will growl and even tried to nip if you disturb her (petting or putting blanket on her) She is a sweet girl but you must know her character a strong leader will be good for her. When we walk outside and meet other dogs she shakes a lot and hides behind me when the other dogs come to her even other people just talk to me she is shaking and hiding behind me. We went hiking she has no problem as long as we don't see any other dogs.YouTube: https://youtu.be/PzRnRFfNcvY show less

Chandler and Joey were rescued from a shelter. Both were sad and timid at the shelter. They have been neglected unhealthy and have severe flea dermatitis. Once out of the shelter he was very happy friendly and sweet. Good with other dogs. He needs healthy food basic home training and TLC. Chandler and Joey are already separated into two different foster homes. Update from Foster Home: Chandler truly is a lovely and sweet boy. He’s not a big fan of loud noises or fast motions so I have been slowly introducing him to new experiences at his level. We have given him an area in the house where he can just relax process his new reality and feel safe. He is a little shy when meeting new people but will definitely warm up over time. Fortunately he has a very big appetite and is very treat motivated! I’m happy to report that he does not show any signs of food aggression. He also loves other dogs and loves to be in their company! He just wants to receive and give love so much but is wary possibly due to little human interaction in his past. Needs dog experienced adults. Chandler will surely share his affectionate personality with an appropriate family that understands his yearning to be loved. House-training is in progress. Need home with attached yard. On 8/31/20 3rd vet exam and neuter the vet told us that he has 4 front lower teeth worn down (common with neglect case and from being locked in a kennel & chewing cage). 3 Vets confirmed they did not need extraction. Prior vets and shelter vet did not inform us of need to remove any teeth. Only noted tartar at shelter. His skin is now healed from the flea dermatitis. Looking great. Loves food and eating well. Vet confirmed at time of neuter exam no dental extraction needed for worn lower bottom teeth. Chandler is very bonded to his foster home with women and men. Also great with neighbors older kids and other dogs that may visit out front. However he will need time to adjust emotionally to new potential adopters since he wants to follow his foster home. He would love a dog friend at home that is polite and not try to challenge him. Update: Chandler was adopted but returned within the month due to sudden fear issues and nipped their adult daughter. We are unsure why he has these random fear issues when he seemed so happy go lucky before. He needs a very quiet routine and experienced adult home with yard to work thru his fear issues. Update 1/11/21: Chandler is crate trained. He generally gets along fine with cats and has learned to ignore his feline companions. I have taught him how to sit down shake hand spin roll over and working on soldiering (low body crawl)!!! He’s intelligent and bonds through training!! Chandler is taking fluoxetine daily and trazodone on an as-needed basis. So far the medication seems to be helping calm his nervousness. He no longer looks around endlessly or in fear of noises in his surroundings. show less

Poor Holly and her 2 buddies (Watch my video! 12/28/20) Tinsel and Frosty were dumped. At the shelter they were nervous and scared. All were badly neglected thin covered with dirt/fleas and matts. Most likely she was left in a backyard with poor diet and no care. The shelter shaved off some matts but she will need to go a groomer. She has flea dermatitis and hair loss. She will need medicated baths/spray and skin supplement along with healthy food to improve her coat and get healthy. Once we rescued her she warmed up at her foster home and loved playing with Tinsel. Holly is a gentle sweetie. We are not sure of her breed mix. Holly will need 2-3 weeks to get healthy and get spayed. She will need an experienced home with a yard. No kids for now until we see more of her personality. Another small dog or adoption with Tinsel with her would be great for her happiness to play with and feel safe. More info. to come as she learns and gets healthy at her foster home. Update from Foster Home: Holly is super playful and loves to lick your face and sit on your lap. She is housetrained and has had no accidents so far still hasn't figured out how to use a doggie door so I take her out to the backyard at an interval of 2 hours. She loves going out for a walk and gets crazy as soon as you bring her leash. Yesterday I forgot to take her out for an evening walk and she brought her leash to let me know that it's time for a walk (It was super funny). Though she loves going out for a walk but doesn't walk properly and pulls you. Working on leash training. She is good with crate and sleeps well throughout the night in our room. She is great with other dogs too as I noticed while walking she loves interacting with small dogs but not sure why not good with my dog. Probably because my dog has a dominating personality. Holly seems to like male dogs vs female.YouTube: https://youtu.be/ewI2l5iVdCc show less

Honey was abandoned at a shelter with her 4 puppies the 'Honey Litter' were about 5 weeks old. Poor mom and all her pups were neglected covered with fleas and lived outside in a backyard prior to the shelter. Honey is timid and shy of strangers (under socialized) but gentle cooperative and warms up. The world is new to her. She is friendly with foster home family but was timid of visiting male person during photography session. She is learning that she is safe. At her foster home she is now warm learning and getting TLC with her 4 female puppies Acacia Clover Manuka and Sage. They all have nubby tails. Honey needs time (3 - 4 weeks) to adjust care for her pups and then will get her vet care. Our vet will age her. She will need an experienced home with an attached backyard. Kids 12 yrs & up. No Apt. She loves going out to yard to lounge and do potty biz. Honey sheds normally. If brushed regularly she will shed sparingly. More info to come from her foster home and after vet care. We will not screen applicants until she is ready. Update from foster home: Honey is a sweet docile girl who wouldn't hurt a fly. She has a very calm energy but will always be excited to go on walks or play outdoors. She would do best in a home without men since she is nervous of a couple men she met. She is fine with the current foster home's dad but doesn't go to him and stays away from him. She is friendly with mom and teenage daughter. Needs time in a quiet routine home to learn she is safe. On her trip to foster home she did great. Just curled up in her crate on blanket and rested. Honey needs another dog in the home. She needs an experienced foster home to work with her to be a inside house dog. She needs guidance. show less
