Fern and her mother Ivy were left behind after their owner took his own life. Neighbors were caring for the pair for a week after calling animal control who would not get involved unless they were loose. They told the animal control that they planned to let them lose in a few days. Before that could happen several animal advocates reached out to rescues and we agreed to take them in. Ivy and Fern have lived together since Fern was born 2 and 1/2 years ago. They were rescued together, held in boarding together and now waiting for a forever home together.
Fern has had her fair share of meals. She is slightly over weight and looks to be a JR mixed with beagle. She has short little legs and is so adorable..and friendly! You just want to scoop her and love her up! She is an amazing girl and is pretty much perfect. Her only issue is mouthing which we are working on. She would be best in a home without little kids that will rough house with her, because she will definitely rough house back.
Fern's Mom Ivy is a beagle, happy, friendly, and has been well feed in her lifetime too. This little mama needs a new diet and some exercise so she can live her best life! Both have been spayed and once they got to us, we saw that their teeth were cared for and up to date on vaccines. We know it will take an extra special person to adopt these two together but with all they have lived through... we would like to keep them together. They are both super sweet and love to cuddle, but they do still need a little work with training. Please consider both when looking at one. They can be adopted separately although Ivy would need to be in a home with another dog. A bonded pair is a wonderful thing to see and add to your family!
The petfinder.com system requires that we choose a predominant breed or breed mix for our dogs. Visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable so for most of the dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.
