Sassafras is a healthy, smart and loving 7 year old searching for her forever home. She was sadly surrendered to FBRN when the children in her former home developed allergies.
Sassafras is the perfect Frenchie. She’s well-behaved, friendly, playful, snuggly and easygoing. She is fully housetrained, knows a command or two (though she prefers they be called “requests”) and has impeccable manners.
Sassafras will go into a crate and stand for a while. Once the door is closed, though, she will bark. We know she could be taught to like the crate as her own palace, given the chance.
For whatever reason, Sassafras doesn’t play with toys. She does, however, love to go for walks. She’ll play with her resident foster fur sister and her foster mom but is also quite content to snuggle and snooze.
Prior to coming to FBRN, Sassafras was an only dog so she doesn’t have to have a fur sibling. She is good with dog-savvy kids and would likely enjoy having kids around. She has no health or behavior issues so would be great for a first time Frenchie person.
Sassafras would do well in almost any environment. House? Sure! RV? She’ll pack up and be ready at a moment’s notice! Apartment or condo? Probably. Foster mom spies on Sassafras during the day via house cams and has noticed this lovely lady barking at noises outside. But if she’s not alone during the day, she seems to be quiet.
She loves walks so even if you have a yard, a walk would be the fastest way to this girl’s heart. But, she truly does love whatever her person loves. She would be fine going to work with someone. She is well-mannered and friendly. She would have no problem sharing her time at the office, snoozing under the desk or making rounds, visiting other workers.
We all have our quirks, don’t we? Sassafras will sometimes – not always – get a little snippy around the water bowl. She will let her foster fur sibling know that it is simply not his turn to drink. It’s not a regular thing but it’s something her forever family should be aware of.
Sassafras’s foster mom has this to say about her: “Sassafras is a true gem of a dog and would make an amazing companion for some lucky person. She has nothing but love in her heart and can't wait to give it to someone. She loves long walks on the beach (or in the neighborhood), snuggles, and treats. She will follow her person to the ends of the earth and lives to please.”
So, what do you think? Is Sassafras the kind of dog you’ve been looking for? Are you ready to commit to love, honor and cherish her the rest of her life and allow her to shower you with love and adoration in return? Apply for her today! She's up in the Florida panhandle waiting to be picked up and driven into the sunset.
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.
Here ya go sweet girl!! Love Fallon and Oliver
