My name is Jewel. My foster mommy says it is because I am soooo precious – just like jewels! (It is also because of my special eyes - I have one blue and one amber eye).
I am about a year old and a combination of sweet and spunk! I love to meet everyone - people, dogs, and cats included. I just love to give kisses and get pats. I live with a mini schnauzer foster brother and I am very gentle with him. I was a bit jealous of my food and water when we first met, but my foster mommy says it was just stress and hunger from my long trip from Kentucky. Now my foster mommy can leave toys and food out and I share very nicely.
My foster mommy tells me that I walk fantastic on a leash most of the time. She says I am the best foster on leash that she has had so far, but that I do still need to work on not pulling when I want to make a new friend. I don’t like to get too far ahead. I often look back and check that she is still there.
Foster mommy says I just need to work on my confidence a bit. I admit I am startled easily by loud noises and things like fireworks and thunderstorms. BUT I am still curious and like to explore new smells. I won’t let my fear stop me from meeting new friends and having fun. But foster mommy thinks that I might be better with slightly older children and in a quieter home (not an apartment) for my own peace of mind.
Oh…. have I told you about my special skill? I am a very high jumper! I love to leap! Foster mommy thinks I might be good at dog sports because I am such a good jumper. She thinks I should try out agility or dock jumping (when I find out if I like to swim). But first I need to learn how to listen a bit better so I can be really good at it so I might want to go to obedience school first.
That is me in a nutshell. I am spayed, microchipped, crate trained, and up to date on all my shots. Please fill out an application if you think I am the sweetheart for you!
