About FERN

Hello, my name is Fern and I am a 3-year-old Akita mix beauty. It’s been said I’m wonderful, extremely intelligent, independent, sassy girl with lots of energy. Though I came to the shelter as a stray with an unknown past, they learn new things about me every day, and I teach them a few things too. I’m unsure how I would do living with small animals, as I’ve a very strong prey drive. They are working on my lack of dog socialization skills, as well as my leash manners. I’m certainly one of the smartest dogs they have had in this facility. Due to my energy and need for training, I’m looking for an adult home only, where my leader continues my routine to unlock my true potential. I must be the only dog. I would love a strong and physically active person who would engage my brain on a daily basis. If you have further questions, emails are the only method of communication at this time. We all care about the health of our 2-legged caregivers and the community at large, so as a precaution we are temporarily suspending our public open hours. We are still taking email inquiries and applications and will be in touch with you as soon as we are able. We appreciate everyone’s understanding during this difficult time! Stay Well!
