Located in Port Washington, NY
According to her foster mom Foxy is a loving and smart girl who has learned a lot since arriving at their home. She is mostly interested in eating and sleeping and cuddling and occasionally playing with her furry foster brother.
Foxy is housebroken and can be crated for small periods of time but is not at all destructive when left home alone. She is good when meeting new people and does well with dogs after slow introductions. Foxy knows the commands for come, off, and taking a treat gently. Due to previously living on the street and struggling to remain fed, Foxy is possessive around food. She needs to be fed separately, and will guard a table of human food so any doggie siblings need to be ok with her being the boss.
The perfect forever home for Foxy is one where she is the only pet or with a very chill doggie sibling. Children junior high school age or older.
