Fostering in CT!!
Meet one of the strongest survivors ever! Miss Fanny! (Nick named Fanna-lanna by her foster kids)
Look at the smile on her face - she’s so happy to just be alive and have a safe warm home with people who care about her. Fanny has a heartbreaking history of being neglected and abandoned along with her puppies, but she doesn’t let that get her down so we won’t focus on that.
Fanny is a super sweet girl - she adores her humans and meeting new friends young and old. She is living with other dogs and enjoys playing with them. She’s also really respectful when they’ve had enough and gives them their space.
Fanny has settled into her new CT foster home and is learning to enjoy the finer things in life like a true lady.
-She enjoys napping on her dog bed but cuddling on the couch is always better 😉extra extra better when there’s a child size lap to rest her head on.
- 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. She enjoys leisurely strolls through the neighborhood or home depot aisles as well as longer hikes and adventures by the river.
-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 helped her master things like “touch” and “sit” though if we are being honest most “sits” turn into her melting onto the ground for those tummy rubs.
-CAR RIDES are easily one of her favorite things.
- dressing up. Fanny is completely happy to put on a fun shirt or bandana to look her cutest.
- supervising yard work or household chores. She’s always close by and isn’t afraid of noisy things like the vaccum. She was not afraid of a weed whacker either though 😬so that task had to wait until she was back inside.
- playing with her foster kids and all their friends.
Fanny is a really easy going up-for-anything type of dog. One thing she does not enjoy is the crate, she’s got her reasons, trust us. She is totally fine when left loose in the home especially now that she knows that she gets special treats when we leave and that we will come back.
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 and half way through treatment which can be continued in her forever home with PAWS covering the vet expense. Once treatment is completed she will be good as new and ready to continue living the good life. Heartworm is very common among dogs who haven’t received proper vet care but PAWS has helped many dogs recover and are there to support the dogs and their families every step of the way. This sweet girl is totally worth it and will make a lucky family very happy.
