    Fergus is a small Sheltie mix who is 9 months old and weighs 26 pounds. He is a shy guy who gets along well with other dogs and cats. Fergus came to Fur Fun Rescue because he was dumped as a stray in rural Missouri at a vet clinic who didn't have any way to adopt out a dog. He waited several weeks for his freedom ride to Iowa. At some point in his short life someone abused him by withholding food and water for long periods of time. It took us some time to figure out that if Fergus thinks his water supply is running low or thinks he might not get any more water, he drinks it all. If Fergus knows his water supply is always there he checks the ... (Read More)water bowls but doesn't drink all the water. Fergus would like a home with a fenced in yard and a doggie door. He loves to be outside on nice days chasing the grasshoppers in the yard and sunbathing. Fergus keeps an eye on his humans by following them everywhere and checking on them often. He is a very cuddly boy who enjoys belly rubs. Fergus is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, and microchipped.
