From the Foster:
This is Jade! I’m going to assume the first thing that drew you to this girl is how stunning she is and you’re 100% correct. This gal is a beauty queen - however Jade is going to require a pretty specific home.
Jade has spent the majority of her life as a breeding mama and as a result she’s not entirely sure how to “dog.” Most things that we deem normal are incredibly overwhelming and scary for Jade. She’s a pretty shutdown pooch and will require a lot of patience in her forever home to be allowed to become the dog she’s meant to be on her own timeline.
Jade will require another confident dog in her forever home. I believe that she would also do best with a fenced yard as right now being on a leash and harness is pretty foreign and scary for her. At this time Jade is not going potty outside but she is diligent about using potty pads in the same spot. With time and more confidence I’m sure that she could become potty trained. Jade hasn’t met children since being in my care so I’m not sure how she would do with them. Loud noises and erratic movements seem to make her uncomfortable so I could see her preferring older kids who can respect boundaries.
If you’ve made it this far without being scared off, here are the great things about Jade:
- She’s beautiful. Maybe it’s shallow to say this, but she’s a really gorgeous dog.
- Getting tail wags from her is the best feeling in the world. As she’s become more comfortable in my home she’s started wagging her tail when I talk to her. They’re not as enthusiastic as some other dogs, but I see each bit of excitement as a success.
- She’s not requiring a crate. I don’t crate her at this time and she’s honestly been great. She mostly sticks to her bed, but she’s not destructive at all and when she does leave her bed it’s to go potty on her potty pads. So, that’s a giant thing you won’t need in your house
- She’s cat friendly! She currently lives with two kitties and does not mind them at all even when they come over solely to hiss at her.
Jade is not your typical dog but she deserves the world. She’s had a long life where she hasn’t been the priority so I’m excited about the next part of her journey. If you have patience and dedication I think it’s only a matter of time until Jade is your new best friend.
