You must meet 3-month-old Fiona! She was found on the street, sick with Parvo and terribly underweight. Thanks to her fosters, she is now healthy, round of belly, and ready to find her people. This should be easy, as she loves everybody. If you like to be rushed every morning by a smiling puppy with her curly tail waving like a pennant, Fiona is for you.
All our dogs are special, but Fiona might be the most special, at least according to her foster family. She is smart and eager to learn, although, like all puppies, she will forget if you don’t keep practicing. She comes when called, knows an impressive string of commands, and is almost completely house-trained. While too young to be crated all day, she can sleep in her crate though she’d rather be with you if possible (please be available every few hours during the day). Fiona gets along fine with her canine foster-siblings and once met a cat and looked extremely surprised, but didn’t chase her.
What kind of dog is Fiona? Perhaps a Spitz? We don’t really know, but her snowy white coat (it’s very very soft!), black eyes, and black paw-pads make us think of the fluffy white dogs you used to see on stage performing tricks. She could easily learn to jump through a hoop, but she’d rather stay home with you than join the circus!
If you think she looks like a tiny polar bear, you’re right, but her little round bearlike ears are not natural. Somebody carelessly cropped them, which is a terrible thing to do, but she is doing fine with what she’s got. She probably had upright, triangular ears, but we will (sob!) never know.
Fiona is a spectacular pet; she is affectionate, eager to please, and as bright as a working dog but active 24/7. She will need more training and lots of daily of exercise. Please be home every 2-3 hours during this important developmental time. She weighs 10 pounds, currently, and we estimate her mature weight to be about 35-40+ pounds. (No guarantees!)
