(when grown) Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
Mirabel is now up for adoption! We love her and we will be sad to see her go, but we are so happy to she is ready for the this next step in her life and her forever family! On Christmas Eve 2021, Mirabel came to us after suffering a horrific bite wound to her head. While her skull and left eye were intact, the bite ripped off her left ear and most of the skin on the left side of her head. She was surrendered to FHS and the vet team was able to save her! She saw a wonderful surgeon and ophthalmologist over the course of the last year who were able to move her neck skin over her wound, perform a TECA-LBO (where her ear canal and ear structures were removed) on the left side, and where her left eye was able to be saved. She also got a "loosening" of her scar in late 2022 that allowed her to see better from her left eye. Throughout all of this, Mirabel has remained happy, playful, and a trooper! She has not complained once! We call her the Unicorn because she is so unique and because she has one ear which often ends up standing up on her head! Mirabel is AWESOME and she has the best personality! She loves all dogs and she is super active. She NEEDS another young dog in her forever home to play and wrestle with. When she goes to a foster home without another playmate she becomes very sad and it's clear that the misses having a playtime. She loves going on walks and meeting new people- Mirabel is a social butterfly and should have owner who loves outdoor time too! Oh, and she is housebroken and crate trained! Her favorite toys are anything that dispense or hide food or are something that she can chew. Bully sticks, ox tails, thick rawhide, and buffalo horns are some of her favorites! Not only does she want a home with a doggy friend, but she would also like a home where she can be on the couch- it is her go to spot when she has nothing better to do. If it's quiet, she is probably curled up on the corner of the couch and just waiting for the next adventure! In the evening, she loves to cuddle up with her family and watch TV. She will also need a fenced in yard! Mirabel has a prey drive and loves to chase squirrels and birds. She tends to be a "leap before looking" kind of dog so this can get her into some trouble. She LOVES car rides and having adventures and is up for pretty much anything! Mirabel is just over a year old and weighs 45 pounds. She is full grown and appears to be some kind of Shepherd mix. She does have a few quirks: -She hates her nails being trimmed! -She can be nippy and bouncy with kids, so a home without young kids would be best. She isn't bad with kids, but she spent most of her puppyhood with adults and sometimes she gets too rowdy with children. -Despite being raised with cats, as she has grown up, so has her prey drive and she will need a home without cats or small animals. She thinks that chasing and catching small fast moving critters is TOO much fun! But she is good with chickens from behind a fence. Mirabel is a super special girl and we are looking for her super special forever home! Are you the right person for our little unicorn?
