  Fergie, ~ 5 months Female Wire-haired Terrier / Giant Schnauzer  Mix
Fergie Fergie

Meet Fergie! She is a 5 month old Wire-haired Terrier mix (some think there's Giant Schnauzer in her) who LOVES the water. At her foster home in TN, they could not keep her out of the water. She is great with dogs, cats, and people. She's a big puppy who has lots of puppy energy, so would be great with another adolescent dog or with teens. We hope she can go to a home that has access to water as she can't get enough of it. Fergie was rescued from a TN animal shelter. This is what her foster mom reports: Fergie is a beautiful girl and if someone is looking for something different, she is your girl. She has just lost her baby teeth so is around 5 months old. She is tall and will be a big girl. At 35 lbs., she is putting on weight rapidly as she was underweight at the shelter. Fergie's entire day consists of playing with other dogs, swimming, napping in between, and lots of eating. She has been in foster care for 4 weeks and we think she is a very smart girl, but we have spent the time with her. She is not a dog to sit home in a crate for 4 hours, with a break and then another 4 hours, no way. That said, she will sit on command so always give the sit command before treats and before her food bowl is put down for meals. She is not allowed to jump on people here. She is a high energy dog and needs playtime in a fenced yard, preferably with a dog door. She is good with cats, people, and dogs. If she is an only dog she should have plenty of time at dog parks or with neighbor dogs to play with, in order to stay social. She is still working on house training (she’s still a puppy, albeit a big one). Fergie loves the water so if you can take her to where she has access she will play in the water all day. She is in foster currently with Ava. She is available as of 4/9/12.
