Ideal Home/Adopter: The ideal home for Fern would include an active family, even better if they have another young active dog! Fern spent half of her puppyhood in a rural shelter, but other than needing help with basic obedience, you couldn't tell! She is friendly with everyone and everything she meets. The perfect home for Fern would be one that likes activity (even if it's just watching a kids soccer game!), or one that likes to hike or go for a morning jog. Everything is new and exciting to Fern and it's hard not to smile- she's like a child seeing the world for the first time! When it's time to settle down, she will MELT into your lap or curl up on your toes.

Likes: Fern loves to play with other dogs, belly rubs, and tossing a stuffed toy into the air for herself to catch! Fern LOVES food/treats of any kind and has no signs of food guarding or aggression. Big fan of belly rubs.

Dislikes: She rides well in the car but does not like to get into the car (she is fine with you helping her up)

Additional Considerations: Fern is the perfect combination of adult and puppy. She is full grown and has the potty training under control, but everything is new and exciting, so she is a sponge that is ready to learn new tricks and routine of her new family!

What makes this dog special: When Fern sees you, she can't get to you fast enough for love! She literally melts into the ground and if you walk away she will CRAWL follow you with a huge smile on her face. Another thing we really love about her? Every time she goes to the crate she will make a pit stop at the toy box and pick out a toy to take with her. Is that precious or is that precious?

Fern's adoption fee is $350. All fees include spay/neuter, microchip, vaccinations, worming, flea and heartworm current. All dogs over 6 months of age have been tested and are heartworm negative.
