Fostering in CT!!
Meet one of the strongest survivors ever! Miss Fanny!
Look at the smile on her face - she’s so happy to just be alive and not living on the streets any more.
Fanny is a super sweet girl - she’s fostering with other dogs and doing just great - she spent a really long time in a vet clinic we work with after being found with her babies almost frozen in in abandoned building. Fanny did her best to care for her babies and two were able to survive and go on to be adopted. Now that she has been spayed and won’t have to care for puppies again it’s time to find Fanny a forever family of her own.
Fanny has made the trip from TN to CT and is thriving in her new foster home. She is learning to enjoy the finer things and living the good life like a true lady.
-She enjoys napping on her dog bed but cuddling on the couch is always better 😉
- Taking daily walks. She doesn’t pull unless there is something that smells Really good and needs to be investigated. We’ve started using a no pull harness that she does really well in.
-Playing with toys. So, so many toys! Fanny doesn’t discriminate, she likes the crinkly ones, squeaky ones, ones that roll and need to be caught, and the ones that didn’t really need that much stuffing 😂
- Getting ALL the belly rubs. She is constantly rolling over looking for belly rubs.
- SNACKS. Fanny takes snacks super gently and patiently waits for more. Chicken jerky is helping her learn things like “touch” and “sit” though if we are being honest most “sits” turn into her melting onto the ground for those tummy rubs.
- Putting on clothes. Fanny is completely happy to put on a fun shirt or bandana to look her cutest.
- Fanny is great with kids including her 2 year old toddler!
Fanny is a really easy going dog and is completely house trained. She does okay in her crate when given something yummy like a kong to keep her occupied, however she has been left in a room uncrated and didn’t get into any mischief.
She is currently living with kids ages 9 and 12 and loves them (like seriously was trying her hardest to jump into a top bunk bed when one was sick. We made him move to a lower spot so she could cuddle him). The wiggle-butt she gets when they get home from school is adorable but shes still learning not to jump up for kisses so a home without really little ones would probably be best. Fanny has taken trips out in public and had wonderful manners. She was happy to meet new friends and hear them call her a “doll” and an “angel”.
Fanny is heartworm positive but has started her treatment which can be continued in her forever home with PAWS covering the vet expense. Dont let that scare you off, once treatment is completed she will be good as new and ready to continue living the good life. This sweet girl is totally worth it. She has been though so much and had nothing but love to give💕
