All About Me

Febe is a little sprite with wiry black and gray fur, with white on her face and assorted other places.

Introducing . . . Febe! People regularly call her a senior dog (harrumph!), but don't let the gray hair fool you-this girl has lots of life left to live and plenty of love left to give. She especially enjoys going for walks, lounging about the house, and being on the receiving end of all the pets and snuggles you can shower on her. Febe also enjoys chasing squirrels up trees . . . and, for a mature dog, she is surprisingly spry when it comes to those pesky animals!

Although it has taken some time to gain Febe's trust, she is now comfortable being out of her foster mom's sight without crying. And she has learned that when foster mom leaves, she IS coming back. Therefore, with a new family, Febe will need someone who will be patient in allowing her to acclimate to her new home on her own terms on her own schedule.
Febe is house- and crate-trained; however, being in her crate for any length of time with the door closed is one of her least favorite things. With the door open, though, she enjoys lounging in there on her comfy blankets.

Febe has been living with another young dog (2 years old, 60 pounds) in her foster home, and she enjoys that canine company and going on leisurely walks with him. On our walks she often barks at other dogs from a distance, although with a happy wagging tail. Febe loves snuffling around in the woods, and you'd swear she was a little truffle pig.

After polite and proper introductions to other dogs, she does fine. So she would do well in a home with or without another dog. However, if the family is out of the house for long periods of time on a daily basis, she would do better with a companion dog.

Febe is happy to jump in the car, although she gets carsick on bumpy and windy roads. She rides in a travel crate, which has been helping with this.

Febe is up-to-date on vaccinations, microchipped, heartworm negative, and spayed.

Febe came to IAR from a local shelter.
