Libby was surrendered to SNAFU Rescue via breeder release along with her sister Dottie. Her breeder wanted her to be placed in a loving pet home to be spoiled and live out her life as a cherished pet!
Libby is an outgoing, silly, Frenchie! She enjoys exploring and learning what new things are! She greatly enjoys her people and loves to follow you around to see what you're doing. Libby seems to get along well with every human she meets, including children, and has done very well with the other dogs she meets! As with many Frenchies, if another dog gets pushy with her, she will retaliate but corrects well with a firm "No" and a squirt from the squirt bottle. As with all of our dogs, we always recommend slow introductions when introducing a new dog to the household. She has been around cats and has done wonderfully well with them.
Libby is currently still working on potty training. While she has been doing well with learning to go potty outside, a regular and consistent schedule will help with her continued potty training in her new home. As with all of our dogs, any adopter will need to be able to and willing to continue working on potty training with her. She has also done great with crate training and sleeps quietly in her kennel during the night or when her foster family happens to leave the home. For her safety, we recommend that she keep a similar crating schedule when her humans are away from the home and/or she is left unsupervised so she is safe and secure while no one is home. She does not know danger and is still learning what is expected of her inside the home.
Medically, Libby seems to be in great health! She came in with a mild Urinary Tract Infection and has been treated for that with antibiotics but is currently eating a raw diet due to crystals found in her urinalysis. Her diet is also supplemented with Dogzymes Tri Cran C due to high PH acidity in her urine. The Tri Cran C, along with her diet change, has seemed to have helped significantly with her Urinary Tract health. She has been spayed, updated on vaccinations/dewormings, has had a dental and has been given a clean bill of health by our veterinarian!
Libby would do well in almost any type of home but since she is still working on potty training, and does not know how to potty on a leash, a house with a fenced yard will be preferred for her (opposed to a multiple floor apartment style dwelling with no yard). She has done great with learning the stairs and seems to have no issues with them! We also think she'd love to go work with her new family if they wanted to take her with them to the office! She loves, loves, loves to meet new people! If her people are not able to take her to work with them, no problem - she's completely happy sleeping the day away in her kennel as long as her people can arrange a mid day potty break for her!
