You’ll need to take me to training classes
Age: 7 monthsSex: FemaleBreed: Dutch HerderAdoption fee: £250.00
Fern is a sweet girl who came to us via an inspector after her needs were not getting met, Fern is a highly active dog who will need adopters who are willing to keep her both physically and mentally stimulated. Adopters must need to be willing to work with a dog behaviorist to give Fern the help she needs to overcome her insecurities. Fern is not suitable for first time dog owners and we are looking for someone who has experience in owning this breed of dog or similar.
Adopters will need to have the time to give Fern plenty of mental stimulation as well as physical exercise otherwise she will quickly become bored. At present she is learning scent work and basic training as sadly she has not had any previous training before coming to the centre. She will need someone who is at home most of the time to teach her it is ok to be left on her own. She is a fun, happy and playful dog who will make the most fantastic pet and has so much potential and so much to offer a new family.
Fern is currently in a foster home where she is learning how to be a dog, she is learning new things constantly which she craves. Fern is a bright spark who becomes bored very quickly so adopters will need to think of new and interesting things to teach her. Fern is essentially an 8 week old puppy in an adult body experiencing new things for the first time but is responding well and with further training will be an amazing companion.
Fern is suitable to live with another compatible dog after a successful introduction. She will need an adult only home.
PLEASE NOTE, DUE TO THE COVID RESTRICTIONS WE ARE ONLY ABLE RE HOME TO ADOPTERS WHO LIVE IN THE YORK AND SURROUNDING AREA.
DUE TO THE COMPLEX NEEDS OF FERN WE WILL BE COLLECTING APPLICATIONS AND SELECTING THE MOST SUITABLE HOME. DUE TO THE HIGH VOLUME OF APPLICATIONS WE ARE RECEIVING, IF YOU HAVE NOT HEARD BACK FROM FROM US WITHIN 2 WEEKS IT MEANS UNFORTUNATELY YOU HAVE NOT BEEN SUCCESSFUL THIS TIME FOR THIS DOG. SUCCESSFUL APPLICANTS WILL BE INVITED TO THE CENTRE TO MEET HER.
