"Fergie" came to us from a family where he was the only dog, and that didn't work well for him. He needs a home with one or two other playful dogs about his age and size. In his foster home, he is always where the dogs and people are.
Fergus is a little overweight, needing to lose about two more pounds. Long walks and fast runs in a large fenced yard are important for him. This is where the ball-playing comes in! Because he's smart and attentive, Fergus would shine in an obedience class, and he loves to practice his skills.
An active home with someone around most of the time is ideal for Fergus, but no children. We're not sure about how he'd react to cats. His housetraining is absolutely reliable, and he goes into his crate willingly. He's also a quiet car traveler. Fergus is a nice youngster who needs just a little polishing. Along the way, he'll make sure you have a lot of fun, too. Look at that cute smile!
Fergus is ... almost 2 years old, 18 inches tall, and weighs 31 pounds. His adoption fee is $350. BEFORE you ask about Fergus, please read "How to Adopt" on our website: NVSR.org. It will answer your questions about our process and expectations.
