It’s been along road for Monarch to land in a new home, the story is detailed but I will let her two time foster mom Ana tell you the story:
Monarch, who was rescued from a mill auction last year, was so very shut down and afraid that she’d sit in a corner and tremble so, she was moved to Andy aka The DogFather and Ana’s house. With the help of their pack, the nutty Frenchie girls in particular, she started to come out of her shell and show her true silly, quirky personality. After only a month, she was adopted out to a very nice family where she continued to grow. Unfortunately, conflict between her and the other Frenchie in the home began, fighting started and the family made the heartbreaking decision to return her after 5 months. She immediately went back into Andy and Ana’s care and for observation. After 2 1/2 months and determining that she can indeed live in harmony with other dogs, it was decided that she would pack her bags and go for an extended visit.
Patsy Ann Bell of Dallas fell in love with Monarch’s eyebrows; she said they look like parentheses on her forehead. Patsy Ann has 2 Frenchies, Brewster and Mavis. Brewster is an older gentleman at 10.5 years old and Mavis is a feisty little 2 year old female. While Brewster is slowing down and entering his golden years, Mavis is rambunctious and full of spirit so Patsy Ann was looking for a companion for her to pal around with. Though Monarch couldn’t stay in her previous home due to conflict between her and the other Frenchie, she does very well when she has playmates. You see, she’s not too keen on people just yet and is still learning to trust, so it’s good for her to have a four legged companion to help ease her anxiety. Ana took her to meet Patsy Ann and her little loves one week ago. Mavis was beside herself with excitement to have a new playmate though Monarch was quite overwhelmed and stressed so she was pretty standoffish. After a while, Mavis settled down and Monarch loosened up a bit. Over the last week with Patsy Ann, she’s come out of her shell more and more each day, Patsy Ann fell in love with her quirky little dance, Mavis and Brewster welcomed her with open paws and it was decided that she will live there forever.
Monarch will now be called Cleo and she’ll live with her new mama, brother and sister in a beautiful home with a beautiful garden, a basket full of toys and all the love she deserves and then some. Her new mama is retired, so she’ll have plenty of quality time at home. She also has a lake house where she’ll get to vacation and make many wonderful memories with her new family. Happy tails, Cleo!
Say hello to Monarch
- Monarch was adopted and returned due to the other Frenchie in the home taking control and fighting with Monarch. She came back to DRR and went to her original foster home where she has had no issues with other dogs. Monarch is a very quiet, shy girl who does warm up eventually but will need someone who understands her mind and how to help her gain confidence. Would do best in a quiet environment with either another calm dog or a confident, friendly dog to help her relax and feel comfortable.
