Get ready for Crazy 8s FBRN style! At eight-months-old and eight pounds of pure joy, with over eight hundred admirers, Savanna is now available for adoption. This tiny nugget was surrendered, along with her brother, after their previous owner didn’t have the resources needed to raise two sight-impaired puppies. Have no fear, our followers are up to the challenge of finding her the perfect home! Read on and see if she might be a match for you.
Just the perfect teeny tater tot, Savanna loves to lay in the yard under warm-ish sunbeams. Even though she is still a puppy, she is not overly energetic. She is content to run a few laps around the yard and then find a Benebone upon which to chew or a lap in which to snuggle. Savanna is still perfecting potty training and could definitely benefit from obedience training while learning structure and routine. This would be a great bonding experience for her and her new family.
Savanna is not completely blind but does not see well up close or in the dark. But what she lacks in sight, Savanna makes up in spades with personality. She may be small, but she is mighty and likes to be in charge. While she lives with children, a cat, and other dogs in her foster home, she has gotten into disagreements over resources such as food, toys and attention. And she does have a bite history so the best and safest family situation for Savanna would be without any small children or other dogs. We think she could do well with a dog-savvy cat but she will have to be monitored at all times around food and toys to keep everyone safe.
Because Savanna is so cute and teeny tiny, it might be easy to let her get away with a lot of things. We know the power of puppy-dog eyes, but she does need a firm leader who will not ignore her behaviors; an experienced owner is best. Let us know how you will resist her puppy powers and enforce only positive behaviors and your application may rise to the top.
Savanna will need at least one or two midday potty breaks, so if there is no one at home during the day a dog walker would be needed. She would love to be the center of attention at your dog-friendly office as long as her level of cuteness (and frequent potty breaks) aren’t too much of a distraction for everyone. We cannot guarantee increased productivity but we can predict improved job satisfaction if Savanna became the office mascot.
Her foster mom says, “Savanna is a quirky and playful little girl. She has grown so much while in foster care. She came to us as a tiny little 12-week-old bean at a whopping 3 pounds. Her vision impairment has not stopped her fierce and feisty little self. She is very independent. She is still a work in progress with potty training and simple commands like sit. She will sit on her own time. She comes well when called and will “go to bed” when it’s time to get in her crate at night. She is a very smart little girl and very attentive. She will be your new little shadow and make a great companion.”
All available dogs are up for a minimum of 24 hours but after that, there is a limit of 20 applications per dog. So, if you feel like you can provide Savanna an ideal, supportive home, get your app in quickly and plan your trip to Georgia. She does very well in the car if she’s on a lap but will whine if she’s in a crate out of the line of (blurry) sight. She’s truly a sweet peach who is ready to find her forever family!
FBRN does not ship dogs as cargo, so adopters are expected to pick up their dogs from their foster family.
FBRN dogs are in foster care in people’s private homes. For the foster families’ safety, we do not disclose specific locations, and we don’t set up meet and greets prior to applications. For detailed information about the dogs in our care, please read the extensive bios on each dog.
