Fern is currently on crate rest due to an ACL injury and in a foster home until August 7. We desperately need to find her another foster home so that she does not have to return to the shelter in her condition. Please email if you are interested fostering/adopting! 

Fern came to the shelter in March and has been in a foster home since she was three months old.

Her foster home says, 'She's in a home with children, another dog and a cat and does well with all, although, she's on crate rest right now and not interacting for long periods. She's a young pup so she does try to do somersaults in the cage, playing, but does listen to 'no' or 'leave it' when my cat runs in front her cage, teasing her. She does bounce around like a baby deer first thing in the morning, but who can blame her when her exercise is restricted! She's been in a foster since she was three months old so hasn't been 'hardened' by the shelter yet.'

As with any young puppy, she will need training, consistency, supervision, and proper chew toys. And most of all, patience.

The Jefferson Parish Animal Shelter adoption fee is $67. The adoption fee includes vaccinations, mandatory spay/neuter, heartworm test, and microchip.
