Fern was found as a stray and is very afraid of people. She gets along well with her foster's two pups and plays with them every day. When she meets people for the first time, she is NOT friendly, she needs time to trust you. This took less than a week with her foster, and now seeks affection. Walks well on a leash and like being in a crate as her safe place. She is housetrained during the day, but still needs to be crated overnight to prevent an accident.
Food motivates Fern and has a very healthy appetite. She rides well in a car and willing jumps in and out.
She is sweet to her caregiver, but will bark at strangers and retreat. She should not be cornered. Hopefully she can overcome her fear of people and be the sweeet girl she really is. Vet visits must be handled with care.
Call her foster mom, Judy, with any questions, 352-638-1483.
