Fern is a gray Staffordshire/Boxer mix who is about 7 years old. She weighs 43 pounds. Miss Fernie has the cutest under bite and soulful eyes which add to her quiet charm. Her coat is full and soft and she has put on some much needed weight since she has been in her foster home.
Fern is looking for a quiet home with loving parents and older children, if any. Her mellow energy and easy care would be perfect for empty nesters or a retired couple. She does get excited over mealtime, walks, car rides and the return of her foster dad from work. He usually has a treat in hand, so it is no wonder she is delighted to see him! Her inner puppy comes out and she prances around with joy; it is really cute.
She enjoys a backyard in her foster home, but it is not a deal breaker in her forever home as long as she gets a couple of nice walks a day. Fern has excellent leash and car manners, and she likes to meet new people of any size. She would no doubt love to be the only pet so she can be the star of your show. Fern rarely barks, is crate trained, house trained, and a very well-mannered indoor dog.
