Hey, Foxy lady – you’re our Adoptable Dog of the Week! Foxy is a young female Whippet mix from Cedartown, Georgia. She is spayed, up to date on vaccinations, microchipped, housetrained, and good with dogs, cats and kids.

Foxy’s Story:

Foxy is a Fox Terrier/Pointer/Corgi/Whippet… but that’s really just a guess. Whatever breeds make up her DNA, the combination of those breeds really turned out one magnificent dog!

Foxy is a jewel of a girl – a true sweetheart of a dog! She is an absolute favorite at the CARES Ranch and we would keep her if we didn’t have so many! She is super low maintenance, gets along with everyone and happy no matter what she’s doing. She enjoys playtime and gets along with absolutely everyone. She’s never been tested with cats but we have no doubt she would be fine with them as well (she is on the submissive side).

Foxy came to us from a rural kill shelter and had been sitting on death row for a while. CARES was her last hope. She was very scared, had little handling and didn’t want to be touched when she first arrived. The first day we got her we put her in a small play area and had a hard time catching her because of her fear of people. Foxy is just a glimmer of that former self. She has left whatever terrible life she had behind and has moved onto better things! We couldn’t be more thrilled… not just for saving her precious life but to see what an amazing dog she has turned into.

Foxy now walks on a leash like a champ (and does absolutely no pulling). She is happy to see people, loves attention, looks forward to playtime with the other foster pups and is perfectly crate trained (she goes right into it herself). She is receiving gold stars on housebreaking and has no issues when taken out regularly. Foxy was born approximately 1/1/15 and weighs 37 lbs. which makes her the perfect size for a couch companion! Foxy is looking for the absolute best home where she will get lots of love and attention that she deserves.
