Meet Fern!
Australian Shepherd Mix
DOB 1/31/13

Fern came to us in early 2013 as a puppy and was adopted to a family that named her Shelly…that is where her AKA name comes from!

Her previous family has a male dog that is not neutered, creating an odd dynamic between the 2 dogs. This dynamic caused some jealousy between the 2 dogs and Fern becoming protective of her family. The family has decided that it would be best to find her another home and has returned her to our rescue.

Fern was evaluated by Millbrook Veterinary clinic and found to be good dog that needs to be given attention and know that she is loved.

We also had her evaluated by the trainers at Woof Beach who found her to be a very trainable dog that may be feeding off of the energy in the home. They suggested that rehoming would be best for her.

We then asked one of our boarding partners – The Water Bowl to take her in and observe her behavior. She has been there for just about a week and is a big hit with everyone!

Fern has been absolutely wonderful with both male and female humans that she interacts with and wants nothing more than to be the center of attention and be loved. She freely gives kisses and is determined to please.

They have also introduced her to dogs of all ages and sizes. She interacts wonderfully in her play groups with male and female dogs alike. Just today, she was running and playing with a group of about 6 other dogs and having a wonderful time.

Fern is looking for a family that she can give all of her love to and only wants to be loved in return. If you are that family…willing to give unconditional love…please ask us how to meet Fern!
