PUPPY ALERT! THIS IS NOT A DRILL!
Russian immigrant Ferguson, hoping to find the American Dream. Sadly, his family was incompatible and now WE have honor of hosting him until he is adopted into a forever home--could it be YOU? (Oooh, so jealous!)
He’s a playful, happy-go-lucky guy who always has a smile on his face. He loves kids (8 and older--he is rambunctious!), but is selective with other dogs. In his new home, he should have only one very mellow canine sibling or better yet, be an only dog.
As a puppy, he has lots of energy. He spends his time following his foster family around (no privacy when he’s around, sorry) and going for walks, which he loves! He can manage being in his crate with some fuss if the humans are at work, but he does best when he has an outlet for his energy--doggy day care maybe? Ferguson is a cuddler, preferring to sleep in the human bed, but he can sleep in his crate as long as it’s close to his people.
And because of his age, he will need supervision, housetraining, and obedience training--he has managed to jump a three-foot gate! Because he is smart and strong (and knows it), professional training is recommended to help him understand which behaviors are appropriate. Thankfully, he is not aggressive; he's merely naughty.
This little dude loves a toy that can take on a Frenchie’s mouth--rubber toys or nylabones are his favorite. He plays with his foster sisters and zooms around the house, parkour-style! Ferguson also loves car rides, or really doing any activity with his humans. He just loves attention and affection. He would like a fenced yard, since he is still working on his potty training, plus he loves sunbathing, and needs some room for his zooms! And a detached house would be preferred over an apartment, since he does make some noise when he is left alone.
Someone who can be home during the day would be best, but as long as someone checks on him mid-day and lets him out, a full-time worker would be able to accommodate Ferguson’s schedule. Alternatively, he has shown some aptitude as an office dog. You’d be doing your co-workers a huge favor! He is adored by everyone he meets.
“Ferguson is very special to me and will always have a piece of my heart. Every day when I get home from work and walk through our door, Ferguson is waiting patiently in his crate with a big smile on his face. He has a glow to him that always makes me happy. Ferguson is a fun, happy, goofy puppy and he will bring so much joy and happiness to his forever home.”
He might be too big to fly, but he is definitely up for a road trip if necessary. He's enjoying the fall in Missouri, and he won't be shipped.
FBRN does not ship dogs as cargo, so adopters are expected to pick up their dogs from their foster family.
FBRN dogs are in foster care in people's private homes. For the foster families' safety, we do not disclose specific locations, and we don't set up meet and greets prior to applications. For detailed information about the dogs in our care, please read the extensive bios on each dog.
Wanted to help Ferguson out in his new foster home. Pamela Holtorf

Ferguson, you look just like my boy Rocco who passed away earlier this year. I hope this helps you adjust to the international move and will be watching to see how your search for a forever home goes; I hope you find one soon. Just know you’ve got a door and backyard wide open for you here in Va! Mark Allen
