Fern- "A link between animals and humans for a better tomorrow"
Fern is a 9 month old spayed female, Australian Shepherd Mix, who lives in Divide. Fern's favorite hobbies and activities include hiking, playing with her blind sister dog, playing with plushy toys and helping individuals with special needs by providing comfort, care, and companionship.
Get to Know Fern More: Fern was born to an orphan mother on the streets of Texas. Eventually her mother found her way to the Rescued Pet Movement. From there, they sent adorable photos to Angie at TCRAS in the hopes they would have a shelter home in Colorado and a higher chance at being adopted. Angie said yes and the mother and young pups were transported to Colorado for a better life. After a few days at the shelter, a volunteer came in and loved all over the puppies and asked if she could foster them. Fern was among those puppies and tried extra hard to be cuddly in the hopes that she could go to this foster home. Fostering was approved and mom and the pups went home with the volunteer!

While in her care, Fern's mother was an amazing escape artist and got out of every enclosure they had. Eventually the mom decided that it was time to wean the pups and seek her forever home away from her puppies. Fern continued on in her early puppy life, being adorable and amazing and also learned from her mother how to escape enclosures. This forced the foster mom to separate Fern and bring her into the family more often and increase her chances of adoption. While her littermates began to have their pictures taken and spread across social media looking for their forever home, Fern's foster mom just couldn't put her out there and finally said yes, I want to adopt this one. Fern had her furever home! Her escape tactics and adorableness worked!
In the end Fern's mom and all her puppies are success stories of TCRAS. A testament to all of the incredible humans working in rescue to help dogs across the country find a better life and furever home. Fern is now nine months old, loved dearly by her two mom's and in training to be a therapy dog at a center helping special needs individuals. Fern's amazing journey has just begun and her story gives hope to all the other shelter animals waiting to find their furever home. Vote for Fern.
