About Me: Hi! I'm Fig and you may have been following me on social media (I've become quite popular with my Facebook and IG posts on Fridays. You know #FigFriday!). As you may know, I'm kind of a scaredy-dog. See, I was never in a home before hart rescued me so eveythings was new and scary. Although I've come a long way since I first came into hart's care, I may always be too scared to do a lot of things. I really like to play with toys and run around in my foster parent's yard, but it took me a long time to feel comfortable enough to do that. I'm not ready to go for walks on a leash yet and the car is very scary for me too. Because of that, it's important that my furever family is still able to give me enough exercise like running and playing in a securely fenced yard! Kids seem nice but they're so scary too. I don't think I would like to live with them...they make me jumpy! Dogs are cool though. I especially love puppies (who doesn't, right?), but dogs that are all up in my face aren't fun for me. If you have a playful yet gentle dog for me to play with, I would like that. I'm not sure about cats but I think I might be alright with them. They don't seem too scary.  

My family will need to understand that it might take me quite a while to warm up to you, so I will need someone who is gentle and patient with me and will continue with my positive training that I'm getting in my foster home. Slow and steady is my motto! Once I'm comfortable with you, I'll be your best friend. What do you say? Do you want to meet me?

Behavior Notes: Fig is a very shut down dog and fearful of people. Fig is a dog that needs a trainer to help her along. She takes a very long time to warm up to people. She does warm up to women quicker than men. She needs a dog in the home to help her along. She is on anti-anxiety meds to help her and this is a must for her at this time.

Health Notes:  Fig came to hart as a transfer from a shelter partner because she wasn't doing well in the shelter environment.  Fig is a very nervous dog and is on a calming medication called Clomicalm.  Fig is up to date with DACPP, Bordatella, Rabies and is spayed and microchipped.
