Meet Fern!

Fern is a shy little girl who came from a puppy mill closing. We think Fern is about 4 years old. She is around 11 lbs. and is belge. She looks funny in her pictures because she was shaved right down almost to her skin! She will look a bit better in a few weeks after she grows some hair back.

Fern will need someone with patience who will teach her confidence. Amazingly even though she is afraid, she will come to you and does like petting but she takes her time. She is currently in a foster home with one other dog and is starting to blossom already. She needs help with housebreaking and leash training although she is already beginning to learn that.

Fern is spayed, up to date on all vaccines and on heartworm preventative. She is being fostered in Ohio.

If you are interested in adoption please fill out our Adoption Application. If you would like more information, please contact Vicki.

Keep in mind that we prefer to place dogs within driving distance of where they are being fostered. If someone from outside the local area is approved for adoption, they must be willing to fly in to get the dog and that can only happen if the dog is stable enough to travel in the cabin with the passenger.
