Bandit

male - puppy
Status: Available

*Potential Adopters: Please note that at this time we can only consider adoption to individuals who have been fully vaccinated against the COVID virus and are willing to offer a vaccination record. It is an essential part of our adoption process that we complete a comprehensive interview, observe the home environment and dynamic between household members and other pets, and thoroughly survey the home for safety and security. It is mandated that all volunteer staff that conduct these home visits be fully vaccinated, and to protect the health and safety of those volunteers as well as their families, we must require that all potential adopters and household members aged 16 and older be fully vaccinated. This is the only way that we will be able to open adoptions again which, until this point have been closed throughout the pandemic due to safety concerns. We have come to this decision exclusively as a result of our care and concern for the health of our volunteers and of course coupled with our desire to find the best placement for all of our dogs. Also applicants must be within a 2 hour driving distance from Chicago at this time.

Most of you know him as Ian but his foster mom changed his name to Bandit. His foster was hoping to adopt him but he doesn’t get along with male dogs that are not neutered. Bandit was one of the parvo pups we took into our rescue and health wise is doing great and ready to find his forever home. He has been well socialized after having to be in parvo isolation and has learned a few tricks- like sit, paw and chill on the couch.

Now don’t be fooled by the sweet innocent face- Bandit/Ian is full of mischievous puppy energy and loves to explore the world with his mouth and chew on whatever he can find. That means his forever home will need to be diligent to make sure he doesn’t chew on anything he shouldn’t- like sticks- remotes and so on! He does love to cuddle and get belly rubs and give kisses. He loves his toys and rolling over when he is playing. He is a funny, rambunctious, curious pup that can get into trouble quickly.

Bandit can be food aggressive sometimes, so it is recommended he is feed separate from a resident dog while either in his crate or gated away from the resident dog. He can take a bit of time to warm up to other dogs and would do best in a home with either no other dogs or one resident dog only and no small children under the age of 10. He is doing much better on his leash walking and potty training but his forever family will need to be diligent about making sure his potty training is kept on top of and be prepared for a few accidents.

Bandit does well sleeping in his crate all night but will bark if crated when you are home. He can go 4 hours during the day in his crate with no accidents but any longer than that-he will need someone to take him out for a mid-day potty break.

If you think you are ready for the challenge of a wild puppy that will in return give you snuggles and kisses but you can still give him rules to abide by and will take him to training classes- please apply at www.frenchieporvous.org for Ian.

His birthday is 3/17/21 and is fully vetted- neutered and microchipped. His adoption fee is $1150 and ready to find the right dedicated owner that will keep working on his training- keep him out of trouble and continue to work on his house training.
