ADOPTED 08-13-11 – Hi there! I am about 12 weeks old and pretty darn irresistible if you ask us. Don’t you just want kiss my sweet face?! I would love to have a home SOON but I won’t be available until August. Jade has been in foster care in LA for a few weeks now and we have learned some new things about her. She is a very special sweet girl, she has had all her puppy shots, been spayed and is ready to travel. There is no question that she is a high energy dog so her new family needs to be very active and give her daily runs in the morning and evening.
She likes dogs and people but she is not used to small children so we will be looking for a family that has older children. In addition, she gets scared of loud noises and the laughter and activity of small children would not be good for this gentle girl. She gets nervous if kids scream or run towards her and her mom is working with her to help her.
She does like to eat and will try to eat other dog’s food even after she has cleaned her own bowl. She is not housetrained and she has accidents at night but as she grows, that will stop. She does whine for about 10 minutes but settles down so she will need someone that can continue to enforce that for her. If her new family gives in to her, which would only get worse so she needs to learn that night time is for sleeping, this is a typical puppy behavior.
If you like to take a dog with you on short and long trips, Jody LOVES the car. A dog that likes the car can become a real buddy and go everywhere with the family. She is not used to the leash so that is something that will work out in time.

Most important, Jade loves to cuddle and she needs lots of attention. They will need to pay attention to her when she is scared of loud noises and help her learn to trust that her new family will always protect her, which takes time so you will need to be patient. Her new family will need to give her lots of exercise because she is an active dog and we believe that she will continue to stay active as a young and adult dog so activity and exercise will be a must for the new family.
