Meet Jade ADOPTED!

Jade is the cutest little girl, approximately 10-11 months old, and about 25-30 pounds. We think she might be some combination of Australian Shepherd and/or Australian Cattle Dog and/or Catahoula.

Jade came to us after someone saved her from being bullied by teenagers in a parking lot. When no one came forward to claim her, she was given a new chance to find a wonderful forever home with someone who will give her the love she deserves.

She certainly hasn't let anything in her past faze her in the slightest! Jade is happy, enthusiastic, loves people, and loves other dogs. She has been working on her basic manners with people and other dogs since no one had ever taught her, but she is learning quickly – this is one smart girl! Jade is incredibly good in a crate and hasn't had a single accident in there. She is also coming along beautifully with house training.

Jade is a typical puppy in that she has energy, loves to play, and likes to try new things, so like any puppy, she needs monitoring and redirection towards appropriate toys and behaviours. She can get a little bit exuberant with play and on a leash (especially if she sees a squirrel!), so we are working on those things and she is doing very well. Her recall is also showing lots of promise – she is getting really good at it in the house and the yard.

Jade has not been tested yet with cats or children. As for children, she is very friendly but is probably still a bit too exuberant for small kids.

Jade is spayed, vaccinated, heartworm tested (negative), and microchipped.
