Foxy Lady was found in the Casselberry area by a police officer. She can be choosy about her dog companions, but she really seems to love her people. She would do best in a home as the only dog and with children older than 10 as she is quite energetic and strong. We're hoping to find her a great furever home where she will never end up in a shelter again!
Volunteer Update, 3/14: Foxy Lady is a fantastic dog! She is so friendly and loves to get attention from everyone. She LOVES to play frisbee!!! She is very playful and loves toys. She is a strong girl and will need a strong leader. She still has some fun puppy qualities in her, but is still well behaved. We love having her at our Oviedo Mall Adoption Center. She loves the kids! What a great dog!
Staff Update, 12/13: Foxy Lady sometimes gets to hang out in the office! She loves to greet visitors. She's been really good about not chewing on the furniture, and she doesn't take things off the desk. I moved the trash can outside, because she does like to take out the papers. But I think it's more of a game with her--I see that tail wagging! I don't think a home with small children would be a good idea, because she could definitely knock a toddler over, as she doesn't seem to realize that she's built like a tank. She is very friendly and loves to play, but again, she doesn't seem to realize how big and strong she is, so she can get a bit rough. She LOVES to play fetch, although trying to get the ball back from her to throw it again can be a challenge! One thing she does need to work on is leash manners: that the human takes the dog for a walk, not the other way around!
The Terrier is a good-natured, amusing, extremely loyal and affectionate family pet, which is good with children and adults. Almost always obedient, it is always eager to please its master. It is an extremely courageous and intelligent guard dog that is very full of vitality. They are highly protective of their owners and the owner's property. It is usually very friendly, but has an uncanny ability to know when it needs to protect and when everything is okay. Excellent with children in the family, they have a high pain tolerance and will happily put up with rough child play. As with any breed, they should not be left alone with unfamiliar children. Used as all around working farm dogs, they were referred to as 'the poor mans horse'. They are strong and generally weigh between 40 and 70 lbs. They have a life expectancy of about 12 - 14 years.
