Jade 2-3 yr old spayed female - KS
Hi All, I'm Jade, and was one of the original Arkansas 8!!
I've been in-between foster and adoptive homes for the past year or so...no fault to me I just didn't work out due to personal concerns and issues. I am now 2-3 years old.
I am an amazing girl that can live with cats, other dogs (small/large and dominant/submissive)....I'm a pretty cool catch! I am curious about men and children, however, my resolution to any concern is to leave the room....sometimes food buys my attention! If they are patient I will warm up to them with a little time.
I absolutely LOVE my foster brother and bitey face/clack often when we play. I am also learning to love my toys and go to the basket to get the exact right toy....shhhh, I can play with it for hours.
I adore laying with my people on the couch and snuggling and can't get enough scratches...I tell them when they're not done by moving their hands and jamming my nose and face into them saying more please and right here!
Walking in public can be very scary to me but I look to my people to tell me it's all good and with support I am very BRAVE and walk confidently through the neighborhood. Riding in the car does give me some anxiety and I do my best on a tether in the back seat with FM singing (very poorly) or talking to me with occasional pats. I know I can get better here.
When you leave me I am fine left loose in the house; I am not destructive and don't potty (I know how to go outside!). If you prefer a kennel I am best in a very strong kennel (i.e. ProSelect) as I do like to test the doors on a simple wire crate. I don't cry and I don't (really) panic....but I can get a bit persistent in a simple wire crate - again, I believe I will work out of this. I love soft bedding and toys in my crate and do not destroy them so I think I am a great girl!
I would do best in a home where someone is home a lot of the time. I can be left along longer if someone really plays with me and tires me out before they go out!
Off leash I am a bit concerned and need to be connected to a long line for a bit so I know my bearings and location - believe me I know where the door to the house is! I would prefer to be with you at all times but I can be confident when comfortable and hold down the couch while you are busy or enjoy the outdoors and green grass when I can see you.
My foster mom calls me a bit of a clown as I always seem to find situations that make her smile. I love my attention and aim to please! At this time I know sit, come and am working on down. With consistency I will have these commands shortly and I DO walk very well on a leash and am a walking favorite!
I hope to find my forever family soon that will invite me into their life for my lifetime as I have tons to give!!!!
