Owner Suitability

  • Will require a huge commitment of time to build a trusted relationship with her and understand she will likely always be nervous around humans.
  • Living as a solo dog may be difficult for her.
  • A very high-fenced yard is a must for Foxy.
  • Has never lived in a house, so house training and dog-proofing will be necessary.
  • Only positive reinforcement should be used to train and interact with this dog.
