Clover is on the small side for a Frenchie only 16 lbs at this time – but she’s got a big personality and ton of energy! She loves to play with her foster sisters – they love to run and chase each other around the yard so it’s important that Clover has a fenced yard. She was surrendered from a puppy mill when she was about 5 months old and was a little shy at first but she’s definitely come out of her shell. She does pretty good walking on a leash when she is with her foster sisters. Being with another dog boosts her confidence when she’s walking and encounters other dogs or people. She hasn’t been around many children and tends to be intimidated by them when she’s encountered them on her walks so she’d be best in a house without small children.
Clover doesn’t like to be left alone – she follows her foster mom around wherever she goes. She isn’t able to do stairs at all so it’s important that you are willing to carry her up and down the stairs if you have stairs in your home. If you leave her behind she will definitely let you know that she’s unhappy as she gets a bit of separation anxiety when left alone. If she gets too upset this can result in an accident in the house. She has always slept in bed with her foster mom so this habit may be difficult to break. She’s little and doesn’t take up too much room but she does move around a lot in her sleep and likes to sleep right next to someone – human or dog is fine for her.
She would do best in a home with someone that either works from home or has a friend or dog walker so she can be out of her crate for a break every 3 to 4 hours. In her foster home she has a walker that comes twice a day so she’s never alone for more than 4 hours at a time. She’s pretty good about not having accidents in her crate as long as she goes out every 3 or 4 hours. Overall she’s probably about 80% house broken – Clover is a typical frenchie and doesn’t like to go outside in the rain, if it’s too hot or too cold so she tends to have more accidents when she isn’t liking the weather. She was doing better with her house training before she was spayed – since her surgery has been having more accidents in the house and in her crate (urination) we had her fully checked out and she got a clean bill of health-so this is just a typical frenchie girl who is making house training a tad harder.
Clover loves to play with toys and bones. She’s an avid chewer so she’ll need plenty of bones and toys to keep herself entertained. Clover tends to take toys and bones from her foster sisters on a regular basis so it’s important that any other dogs she lives with are patient since she doesn’t understand that all dogs don’t want her stealing from them. Fortunately her foster sisters are both extremely patient with her. .Clover also thinks she is part beaver and if you don’t watch her closely- she will chew on your furniture or baseboards if she is unsupervised or bored- this little girl will keep you on your toes!
She’s making some progress on basic obedience, but as with all frenchies, will need someone that can continue to work with her to master her obedience training.
Clover is spayed- micro chipped- up to date on her vaccines- heart worm and fecal negative and comes with some of her current food- bed- leash and harness.
Her adoption fee is $950
