And sometimes we rescue foxes… k just kidding. Meet DARCY – she’s totally a dog, we promise. This girl has traded in the beaches and full moon parties of Thailand (yes THAILAND!) for the snowy Canadian winters and she LOVES it so far! You may not be happy about the snow but she is and she goes nuts for it. DARCY is an outdoorsy girl and really enjoys her walks. We think she’s love a family who likes hiking, long walks on the beach, camping, etc. She’s pretty good on leash but still gets spooked by some city noises so will need to work on building her confidence. She’s already come such a long way since arriving and is definitely willing to learn new things but she is EXTREMELY shy at first. DARCY would benefit from a minimum of 2 hours of exercise per day and bonus points if you have a backyard, although it’s not necessary if you’re willing to go on long walks with her morning and night. She’s also very quiet in the home so could be ok in an apartment or condo. She has been known to run so should be leashed or in a fully secure area at all times. She thrives on routine and while it may take her a day or two to settle in she is very adaptable. She’s not just a pretty face either as she’s house trained, crate trained and learning her basic commands. She’s still getting used to being a pet and hasn’t realized how great toys, bones or snuggles are just yet. DARCY will not immediately warm up to you and it will take some time and a very patient owner to help her come out of her shell. We’ve seen it with her foster and we know it can happen but you will need to work for it. If you think you’re her perfect match fill out an application to adopt.
