Since coming into foster care, Paco has been neutered and had ten teeth pulled. Otherwise he has a clean bill of health!
Paco lived with two children previously, but would likely not be the best fit for young children. He can be very boisterous and may knock over a small child. A home with no children or only older children would be best. Because Paco has never met a cat, per FBRN policy, we have to say no homes with cats. He has exhibited prey drive with rabbits in his yard, so he likely should not share a home with any small animals.
Paco thoroughly enjoys the company of his foster brother, another male Frenchie. However, he seems to have mixed reactions toward different dogs. Some he loves, some he responds poorly to. He loves his foster brother -- another middle-aged male Frenchie around his size -- who is neither dominant nor submissive. The two are inseparable, and cuddle and play with toys together. However, other dogs, both male, female, large, and small he may not mesh well with. In general, he seems to get along best with dogs in his own household and yard, but may react negatively toward strange dogs outside the home. Slow introductions would be a must to help Paco be comfortable in his new home and recognize other dogs in the household as family.
In general, Paco is an easy-going happy camper. He will happily do whatever you want to do: play and be active or just lounge around on the couch all day. He LOVES people – more than any dog his foster mom has seen! He is filled with joy if you even look in his direction. Paco is not a Velcro dog, however, as he is also content to chew a bone or sleep on his dog bed while his people go about their business. Paco’s activity level is fairly low to moderate, and he is definitely more of a follower than a leader.
Paco may not be the sharpest tool in the shed, but he is the sweetest! He has no behavioral issues other than mixed reactions to new dogs. He has no food or toy aggression toward people or other dogs. Despite coming in as a stray, Paco is now housebroken and crate-trained with occasional accidents that are becoming increasingly rare. Adopters should be prepared for some regression when he first arrives in the housetraining department, but with an established schedule and clear expectations, accidents should diminish quickly. He may surprise you and not regress at all!
