About Fergie

Adoption Fee: $100.00
Lab mix
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Female

This girl is Fergie. She came to our shelter in July 2020 after running loose for 2 weeks as a stray. The people that brought her in fed her daily and were able to finally gain her trust. Desperate to find some kind of trust she quickly bonded with the officers at Animal Control. It wasn't until her first meet and greet that they learned about her fear of new people and surroundings. So here she has sat for 280 days and counting.... Recently one of the Animal Control officers and her have started training. They attend 'Balanced Behavior K9 Obedience' training once a week. She has made tremendous strides in her training. After the 3rd training session Kevin, the trainer, is able to pet her head whereas before he couldn't get close. This trainer is offering free continuing classes with Fergie and her new owner. The Animal Control officer that attends training with Fergie has also recently been fostering her. She does excellent with her husband and three children (11 months, 3 years and 6 years). She is house trained and knows basic obedience commands. We have been working very hard on socialization with new people and surroundings. She gets along well with male dogs and cats.
