This adorable little pup is almost five months old, and weighs about ten pounds. She was rescued from Taiwan, and is a Formosan Mountain Dog! Nia passed her assessment with flying colors; she had a blast! Nia is the runt of her litter of ten... What she lacks in size, she makes up in personality. This girl is fierce! She had a great time playing, and getting to know what The Fort is all about.

We're looking forward to watching Nia grow up with us. She had such a great time, she's even coming back tomorrow! 

Have a marvelous evening,

Flex was our handsome assessment that joined our Small Dog Program this morning! He's a seven pound, seven month old Miniature Pinscher, with a whole lot of spunk! Flex had a good time meeting all the other dogs in his area, and was super focused on playing. We have a feeling "ball time" is going to be his favorite activity at The Fort

I'm looking forward to seeing this little guy return. Have a good evening,

Yesterday, we had the pleasure of meeting Tank. He is a one-year-old, one hundred and twenty pound, Rottweiler. Tank joined our Large Dog Program, and had a great time playing with his new friends. Georgia, the German Shepherd, was one of his favorites. Tank passed his assessment with flying colors and is welcome back anytime. We look forward to seeing him again soon.

Have a great weekend,

Fonzie and Penny

  Fonzie was one of our assessments this morning. He's a Terrier mix that weighs twenty two pounds and is only seven months old. This little guy mingled with the dogs in our Small Dog Program and had a great time learning the rules of daycare, and how to hang out with the rest of his new friends. 

P.S, does his name make you think of someone- particularly someone who used to be pretty famous? 

Yes, Fonzie was named after the coolest "bad boy" around, The Fonz! 

  Penny was our other adorable assessment. She's an eleven month old, Yorkshire Terrier
that weighs eleven pounds! We noticed right away that this girl is very aware of her surroundings; she doesn't miss much. She's a keen dog that had a fun time doing her thing today, and learning where her place is at, within the pack. She even made a new friend with a Wired Fox Terrier, named Bella Adele.

Have a marvelous evening,

Piper & Parks

Piper came into the Fort bright and early this morning for her assessment. She is a six-month-old, twelve-pound, Pomsky (Pomeranian x Siberian Husky). Piper joined our Small Dog Program where she made friends with Winston the Blue Heeler. She had a good first day and is welcome back anytime.

Yesterday, we welcomed Parks to the Fort. He is a fourteen-week-old, twenty-four-pound, Border Collie. He had a great first day, and played with everyone in our Medium Dog Program. His favorites were Molly and Clover. He is welcome back anytime. Good job, Parks!

Check out this clip of Parks playing with his new friend, Clover.

Have a great weekend,

Rudy and Jerry

Rudy came into The Fort to join our Puppy Program all bright eyed, and bushy tailed Tuesday morning. This little guy is a ten month old, twelve pound Standard Poodle. He did exceptionally well on his first day, and made a couple friends! One of the dogs he took a particular liking to was Lucy, we even got them playing on video together; check 'em out! 

Another cool thing that we discovered yesterday is that Rudy actually already has a half sister, coming to Fort Fido. No, they aren't from the same household either; check out Zoey! She's a standard poodle in our Medium Dog Program that joined us just around this time last year! Rudy and Zoey share the same Dad, and I'm looking forward to watching Rudy grow up, and eventually join his sister with her friends.

Jerry was today's handsome assessment. He's a three in a half year old Greyhound that joined our Medium Dog Program and weighs seventy two pounds. This dashing dog had a wonderful time meeting his new play buddies... He was intermixed with the pack all morning, and even found a friend named, Nala.

Both Rudy and Jerry are welcome to come back for more daycare fun whenever they please.
Have a marvelous night, Shaunte'
