Fancy Pants is just what you would expect out of a young fun girl.  She is full of love and affection and energy.  She loves to play and then loves to curl up on the couch with someone to take a naps and give kisses. She settles quickly.  Fancy knows sit already, comes when called and is working on the stay command.  She is food motivated and a quick learner. She is also vocal and likes to tell you when she wants something, this likely would cause problems in close living environments like an apartment. Fancy will do best in a home with a fence where she can burn off energy safely. However, she can climb and a 6 foot privacy fence is recommended for her safety and your peace of mind. 

Fancy Pants is good with other dogs and with bigger children. She is curious about the barn cats and thinks they want to play when they flee.  However, she likely would be fine with supervision until she learns they are not toys. She is young and can be exuberant, so small children will need lots of supervision with her or she would do better with children over 6. Fancy pants has been fostered in a kennel environment despite thinking she should be in a castle like other queens.  For this reason, she is not fully potty trained.  However, with her intelligence, we think she would learn quickly. 

Fancy Pants is fostered in Huntsville, AL.  She is up to date on vaccines, Heartworm negative and on prevention, microchipped and spayed. To apply for FancyPants go to www.forrescue.net/dog-application

About Friends of Rescue - Portland, ME

About Our Rescue Group...

Friends of Rescue is a certified 501(c)(3) organization formed in 2009, consisting of volunteers who are devoted to saving shelter animals that are in danger of euthanasia. Southern shelters have a constant overflow of dogs and cats, little funding, and limited space. Once the animals arrive at the shelter, they have very little time. It is our goal to help save these adoptable animals and find loving individuals/families who will provide committed, FORever homes. We are NOT professional trainers or animal behaviorists; simply volunteers who are trying to save these animals from euthanasia. Each animal in our program is in a foster home and receives all age-appropriate vetting while in our care.

Our Adoption Process...

We have many wonderful dogs looking for homes! Our dogs are mainly fostered in one of our many experienced foster homes. All of our animals receive rabies vaccine, distemper/parvo vaccine, bordatella, microchip, and spay/neuter, as well as being kept current on monthly heartworm and flea prevention. All of our dogs come with complete medical records. Their adoption fee of $450 covers their complete age appropriate vetting, as well as transportation to your area.

Our rescue doesn't have an actual facility in the New England area. Due to this it is not possible to meet them prior to their adoption. Our dogs are brought up to their new owners weekly! Our transport service is certified through the USDA. We have a 14 day no questions asked money back guarantee and the dog can be returned to us if things do not work out. We try hard to make good matches with our animals and their adopters so that everyone has a happy life together! Our foster homes love the animals in their homes and will fully disclose everything about them – some can even Skype or send videos for you to see them in action.

We can provide references from other rescues, previous New England adopters, and our veterinarians if requested.
