    Meet Fawcett! She is a quiet and shy girl – but once she opens up to you she will melt your heart.

    Fawcett came to AARCS with her brother and sister about a year and a half ago. All 3 of them were very shy, and undersocializaed. Her siblings have since found their forever homes, so now its her turn!

    Fawcett is loving life, living with 3 cats and 2 doggie siblings.She is doing really well and is a little bundle of energy – loves to play and wrestle with people and dogs that she is comfortable with. She is very good on leash and loves to go walking. If you are interested in coming to meet Fawcett she might be shy at first but warms up relatively quickly. Fawcett is looking for a family who will be committed to on-going socialization and confidence building with her. She is quite fearful of new things but shows an impressive level of resilience and healthy curiosity that suggests that with on-going training she will continue to blossom. Recreational Agility, Intro training classes and one-on-one training would be an incredible opportunity for her! She would do best in a home with active owners who could take her for lots of walks who will get her out and about to learn about the world. Fawcett would be suited to a home with or without another dog, however, we think she would do well with a dog brother or sister as it would boost her confidence. All the dogs she has met and spent time with in foster she has done incredibly well with.

    Fawcett is a huge sweetheart with so much love to give – if you think you could be a good match for her – please contact AARCS.

      Yes, Behavioral Needs

      Fawcett is very shy and nervous in new situations – she takes time to adjust to new people and new places. Once she opens up to you she is great – she just takes a little bit more time than other dogs.
