Faye is a beautiful, sweet and gentle young dog who was rescued by Brockton Animal Control after being found out roaming on her own so desperate for food that was she was seen picking up and chewing almost anything she thought looked edible, according to Kim Agricola of the Medfield Animal Shelter.
"She was severely emaciated and dehydrated but has been brought back to good health and looks great," Agricola said.
Faye arrived at the Medfield Shelter on April 23rd, and Agricola said she has settled in nicely.
"At only about one-year-old she needs some training to learn the fine points of leash walking and other puppy lessons," Agricola said. "Within five minutes [of being in the shelter] she was sitting on command when a dog treat was her reward."
Agricola says Faye is very food motivated, but takes the treats from your hands ever so gently. Faye is also extremely curious, she is a fun dog to play with and she enjoys belly rubs. She needs a home that will provide the exercise all high energy dogs need in order to be happy.
"She loves to go for walks and she would love to go to the dog park or on a run or hike in Rocky Woods/Rocky Narrows/Caryl Park or one of the other wonderful places in our area to be a dog," Agricola said. "She loves to socialize with other dogs and would make a great friend for a playful dog in need of a companion."
She is approximately 40 pounds and is young, probably only a year old. She was spayed and updated on her vet care on April 24th and is now ready for a home.
