Hi my new name is Fern! I am a beautiful white and tan pit bull girl about 3 years old. I have recently been spayed and recieved all my shots, a license and a microchip.
My temporary parents can't take me home because they have too many cats and I kinda like to chase them. I am currently living at a boarding facility and would really like to find a new permanant home. I am well behaved and still learning new commands.
I am very good about meeting new people, I love going to the park, and I met a really nice yellow lab today. I am curious and want to meet other dogs, but my temporary mom is careful to supervise the new introduction. I will probably be fine with other big, mellow, friendly dogs after a reasonable period of introduction. I am not very interested in kids at the park, but probably better for me to be with older children who will respect me and not poke at me.
So if you would like to meet me and see if we can become a family please contact my rescuer! I am also desperate for a foster home... the kennel just makes me depressed and sad and I can't just relax and be me.

Fern's rescue story... I found her in my neighborhood in Martinez near Animal Services (I think she was dumped there). I walker her and drove her through my neighborhood for hours, but I could not locate her owner and no one recognized her. I could not securely hang onto her with all of my cats and had to turn her into the shelter hoping that her owner would come looking of her. But the human race proved to be very disappointing once again; her owners never showed. I contacted all local and not-so-local rescue groups, but, as many of you know, their foster homes are beyond full. Fern, as the shelter staff named her, was scheduled to be euthanized on January 21st. I officially adopted her just in the knick of time and have been boarding her in a kennel in Concord ever since. She is a very sweet girl, but she is definitely feeling lost, scared and confused. I try to take her out of the kennel every chance I get, which is unfortunately just on the weekends as the kennel closes at 5 p.m. We go to a park to have play, roll in the grass, lay around in the sun and work on basic commands. The more time I spend with her the more she starts to play and show signs that her heart can be mended with love and attention. She does not appear to be good with cats, but I have not had her around other dogs just yet. She is definitely interested in other dogs when they walk by but she is not fixated on them and easily turns her attention back to me when I ask her to.
