*SPECIAL ADOPTION PROCEDURE* *6 FT FENCE REQUIRED*Birdie is considered to be a feral dog. Through the crucial developmental period she was not exposed to things that normal pet dogs get exposed to. She lived in an shed with other dogs & had very minimal exposure to humans other than feeding time. Here in the shelter she has found a couple people that she tolerates being around but has no real interest in interacting with them. She follows the lead of other calm, mature, stable minded dogs. Birdie can not go to a home with cats.Birdie's family should understand that she may never be a normal family pet & may never bond to the people around her. She will need time, patience, & working with her will be a very long, slow process. Working with feral dogs can be rewarding but can also be frustrating & requires great dedication. Birdie's potential family also needs to be aware that she may have an issue with her lower GI tract. Her foster mom found a food that is good for keeping Birdie's stool formed & she will need to stay on that food after she finds a home. She also needs frequent potty breaks. If she gets too excited when she hasn't been outside for a while she can't seem to be able to hold it all in! Otherwise, she is housebroken & has not had other accidents in the foster home.*Preferred:A secure 6 foot fence is a must as Birdie is a flight risk.Another calm dog in the house would be preferred to help Birdie adjust.A home with no children would be the most successful.Birdie would probably appreciate a family of homebody introverts who understand her personality!
