Fancy is a very sweet and demure girl. She bonds quickly to her people and is easy to keep around the house. Fancy is relatively quiet and is great in her kennel. She is house trained and responds well to several voice commands.
Fancy has diabetes and will require twice daily insulin injections at meal time. She is also nearly completely blind, able to see some movements and to differentiate between light and darkness. Even so, you'd almost never know she had these disabilities, she has adapted so well. Fancy enjoys playing fetch as long as the toys she has make a good noise as they hit the ground. She will also play tug and enjoys soliciting play from her human friends.
Fancy is obviously unable to read other dog's body language and she can get overwhelmed by and sometimes prefers to create distance between herself and other dogs. She is also extremely possessive of anything she thinks is food when it comes to other dogs, and occasionally people, too. For these reasons we think it is essential that if you have other dogs in your home, you not free feed any of them and you be dedicated to feeding Fancy apart from other animals.
Because Fancy is possessive of her food with people too, we do not recommend her for a home with kids under 7 who might not understand her need for space at meal times. Apart from her food behavior, Fancy is very nice to children and can be safely approached, petted, and handled by them. She is also great with cats.
