Fiona is a happy go lucky kind of girl!
She came to us in March VERY pregnant. She arrived to her foster and was sweet and friendly from day 1. One week later, she had a litter of six big, beautiful puppies. She was a very caring and attentive mom and her babies have all gone home. Now, it’s all about Fiona.
Fiona is fostering New England and seems to be a young girl. She is about 40 lbs. The vet estimated her to be about one year, but she has puppy energy! She loves to play, run, explore in the woods, and dig. She has come to win over her cranky foster brother. Once he chilled out, they have become running buddies. She’s not aggressive at all, but will defend herself. She quickly adapted to the doggy door and the electric fence and they do laps around the house a couple of times a day. Fiona LOVES attention from her people, so another dog isn’t a must for her. She does well in a crate but has been sleeping with her pups in the puppy space and does just fine going down stairs when its bed time. Since the pups got to the point where they were on their own, she sleeps in a crate with the door open.
She is mostly housetrained, but she has an occasional accident. She has gotten into things when she is bored or alone too long, enjoys chewing bones and loves to cuddle on the couch with you, she thinks she’s a lap dog. Fiona is a very loving dog; she just may need a little puppy/basic obedience training.
We are not sure of her past, she traveled up from Texas. Fiona would love a home with room to run in a large fenced yard, she will take off if not contained. She would love a moderately active family. Her foster family has no young children at home, but based on her gentle demeanor, we feel as though she would do well in a home with older children. She does jump up on people, again, she will need some training. She’s fine with men and women, not skittish, doesn’t appear abused, just lost or abandoned. She is very gentle and friendly and does well with dogs that are friendly to her. She has not been around cats. Fiona deserves a fun, loving family and you will be lucky to have her join yours!
