Faye is a well-behaved sweetheart who absolutely adores children and female adults. She tends to be skittish around some adult men, but as long as the man is kind and gentle, she'll learn that he is safe. Faye is a very easy going dog when it comes to most things.

Faye's favorite pastime is making sure the couch does not move. She is fully house-trained and had zero accidents since she's been in her foster home. What a smart girl! She prefers that her humans be home, and is still trying to learn that her humans will eventually come home. She would love a family who can help work through her anxiety when she is left alone.

Faye seems to have an adventurous side, and will be a fun companion to go exploring. She would ideally like some help with some leash training. Faye is still getting comfortable with a collar, and needs additional support with getting used to being on the leash. She has begun to respond to "come and "off, and is eager to learn more from a patient teacher. Faye is respectful in the home and rarely barks, only if she needs something. Like the time her foster mom went to bed without tucking her in and saying goodnight. Everybody likes a goodnight kiss; can you blame her?

Faye is smart, sweet, and adorable, and will make a great best friend for a patient family! Come meet this lovely lady today.
