    Story

    Sweet, fun girl looking for a loyal friend to share long walks and lots of cuddles!

    Foxie has been patiently awaiting many months to find her perfect forever home. She is a small dog at less than 20lbs, but don’t let her size fool you- she has a lot of energy and a ton of personality. Foxie is a smart, very sweet and active girl and needs a home that can keep her body and mind busy. She would be a great running, hiking or agility partner, and when the day is done, she loves nothing more than to snuggle in bed with her favourite humans. She is quite anxious about meeting strangers (dogs and humans) and her foster home and the behavior team has been working with her reactivity towards new people. Despite being fearful at first, once you earn her trust, Foxie is extremely affectionate and loyal and will smother you with kisses. Foxie lives in a foster home with dogs and cats and gets along great with everyone, however, she does require a slow and careful introduction to new dogs. Once she makes a dog friend, she loves to play and would do well in a home with another calm and playful dog. Foxie is the sweetest, most affectionate girl and tries so hard to please her favourite people. Due to her behavior needs, Foxie would do best in an experienced, low traffic, mature home, committed to continuing to work with her. She has a heart of gold and has the funniest personality that is guaranteed to make you smile every day. She is crate trained, although rarely crated in her foster home as she is excellent in the house. Foxie is looking forward to meeting a new best friend, and finding a forever home.

    Looking for a best friend for life!
