Fern is one of our newest family members! She joined our family after her owner needed help placing her and her siblings. She wanted them to end up somewhere safe and surrendered them to us. Now that we know more about Fern, it is time to start the search for her forever family!
Fern is a 9 week old female Great Pyrenees/Aussie mix. We don't believe that this litter will get very big. Our guess is that they will top out in the 40-50lb range once they are full grown.
Interested in what Fern's foster has to say about her? Check out the below text then :)
"Oh, beautiful, blue-eyed Fern - heart, be still! Fern is a little shy with people at first but she warms quickly once she sees that her siblings accept the person. Then she wants to be a part of the action, tugging at your pant leg or playfully puppy biting your ankle. Fern has always been with her siblings and above all else, she LOVES to play and tumble with them. It would be ideal for Fern to join a family with a very playful dog or two (or five ?). Once she’s tuckered out, she loves pets and belly rubs. She does that happy dog leg scratch when you get to a certain place on her tummy and it’s really cute to watch. She likes being inside for rest but she really enjoys exploring and puppy wrestling outside. She isn’t super interested in toys yet but her favorite toys, so far, are the soft squeaky stuffies. Fern is the quietest of her siblings. She hasn’t whined or barked to remind me that it’s time to eat. She does growl at her siblings when they approach her food bowl so it will be important for Fern to have her own food bowl in her forever home."
Fern enjoys being held and relaxing with her family! She also likes playing with the bigger dogs and doesn't mind taking on the "pestering sister" role sometimes. She is pretty chill, but she isn't afraid to be assertive if she needs to be. This girl is a total hoot and is going to make you fall madly in love with her!
You can apply to adopt Fern using the link below. However, we highly recommend reading her ENTIRE bio to find out more info about her and see if her personality would be a good fit with your family first.
Adoption App :
?? Fern's Questionnaire ??
? Is Fern potty trained?
Fern is still a baby, so she is not yet potty trained. This is something that her new family should be willing to work with her on it.
?Is Fern kennel trained?
No, she isn't.
? Does Fern need continued socialization?
YES! In short, socialization involves thoughtfully exposing your puppy to various experiences she may have throughout life. This helps your pup develop into a well-balanced, confident dog. Be sure to expose her to
*People outside the immediate family.
*Outfits, facial hair, and accessories(hats, sunglasses, giant coats, etc).
*Places. Your pup may be wonderfully socialized at home. But what about the veterinary clinic, city sidewalk, or your office?
*Routine care. Handling your puppy’s paws, ears, and tail, inspecting teeth, and bathing and brushing regularly will make future veterinary visits and grooming a breeze.
*Sounds. Doorbells, sirens, thunder, fireworks, loud trucks, barking dogs—alarming sounds abound in our modern world.
*Unusual surfaces. You may have heard stories about dogs who won’t do their business outside when the grass is wet. Perhaps you’ve seen dogs panic at the sight of cattle grates, stair landings, or veterinary exam tables. These dogs probably didn’t spend much time walking on surfaces different from those they had at home.
?Is Fern good with other dogs?
Yes. She loves other dogs and seems more relaxed whenever she is around them.
?Is Fern good with cats?
Fern is not being fostered around any cats. Given her age, with proper introduction, she should be fine with them.
? Is Fern good with kids?
Yes. She is still a baby herself though so should be placed with older kids that won't be scared of her sharp puppy teeth and claws when she wants to play.
?Would Fern do well in an apartment setting?
-It depends. If she had someone home most of the day with her and/or another doggie playmate, and a good exercise plan in place, we believe she would be fine.
?? To Fern's Future Family ??
Fern has always been around her siblings and above all else, she loves to play and tumble with them. She will need a home that has a very playful dog or two. Once she’s tuckered out from puppy play, she loves pets and belly rubs. Since I haven’t taken her on any walks, I can’t speak to that but I believe she will do well with an active or calm family so long as she has dog siblings for lots of play.
Fern is being fostered in Oklahoma City, OK. Her new family needs to be able to pick her up(even if they are out of state). No commercial transports and no shipping. Just a fun road trip with her and her new family! ?
Her adoption fee is $275. That includes two sets of puppy shots and wormings. She will also have had a bordetella. She will be micro-chipped, have a fecal done, be de-wormed, be spayed/neutered, and will be current on heart-worm and flea/tick prevention.
