When you call “Fancy,” a beautiful, bouncy, eager-to-learn young Aussie perks up and comes to investigate. This 2 year old, 45 pound, medium energy, amber-eyed girl has come a long way towards learning that humans hold the key to all things wonderful!
She needs patient, out-going humans and a friendly, confident canine companion to show her how much the world has to offer. She's up for being as active as you want - hiking, swimming, fetch, going up for Frisbee - no problem!
Because she watches and learns from other dogs, she’s now engaging in normal dog activities. Once she is comfortable, she seeks people out for attention, cuddles on the couch, gets into and out of the car easily, goes happily to work with her foster dad and enjoys walks around downtown Austin, and now sleeps on the bed where the humans sleep! When guests come to visit, she no longer heads to another room. She’ll greet guests politely and stay in their midst. She’s discovered tennis balls and Frisbees can be fun, especially if she’s going after them in a pool! Now that she’s more relaxed, she’ll break out in the cutest wiggle-butt dance when she’s happy – she’s adorable!
Since she mimics her canine companions, it’s especially important that her dog role model be well-mannered and people oriented. But it’s also important the dog have a sense of humor and enjoy (tolerate) Fancy’s antics. If a dog is in her way, no problem; she’ll walk underneath them. She doesn’t mind taking a nap under a standing friend or using them for her pillow. If a dog has a toy, she’ll perform her cute wiggle-butt dance to entice them to share. She LOVES running and playing with other dogs too!
It didn’t take long to discover that she was naturally curious and really, really wants to engage and participate with her humans; she just didn’t know how. With lots of patience and the help of her foster family’s dogs, Fancy is learning to relax and enjoy human companionship. She now has polite leash skills and knows that the leash means a fun adventure is waiting! She looks to her person for guidance in an uncertain situation and praise when she’s done well.
Fancy is available for adoption in Texas only. She is spayed, microchipped, up-to-date on all vaccinations, heartworm negative, and on monthly Heartworm preventative. She is housebroken and trustworthy left in the home.
