Sadly Happy has been a foster with FFAR for 2 years. We are not sure why as she is lovable and fun dog. It could be her size, that she is a black dog (black dogs and cats are harder to adopt out) or that she needs to be the only dog in the home.
Regardless of the reason, her foster parents are determined to find her a wonderful home to call her own. One where she can be loose in the house all day, every day, where she will be spoiled and given all of the attention without the stress of other dogs in the house. You see, Happy doesn't do well around other dogs especially large ones. She has done better with small dogs and puppies, but she still reacts at times so she needs to be the only pet. If there are children, they should be 12 and up.
Happy loves to play with a ball and is learning to "give" and "drop" the ball upon bringing it back. She loves to go for walks and can sit, lay and stay on command and she won't eat her food until the magic word is said. She is very smart!
Happy does great in a crate or loose on car rides and is house broken. She is currently left loose in the house at night and can be trusted completely. Happy is looking forward to finding her forever family!
Due to the nature of the process, potential adopters need to be in the DFW area
and please be prepared for a home visit by one of our volunteers. We do not adopt on first-come-first-served basis, we want to make sure the dog is right for the family and vice versa. Our adoption fee for dogs is $175. You can complete an online adoption application on our website http://www.furryfriendsanimalrescue.org - we will get back with you asap.
