Foster update:
Jellybean roamed the house for the first day we had her and then settled in on the second day.
She loves to be around her humans, and may choose one as her dominant human.
She is no trouble at all. If it weren’t for her snoring you’d never no she was in the house. She loves attention and is a shadow dog to her dominant human.
She is great on her leash, however is leash reactive to people who seem to be coming at her, and with other dogs. As her foster, I have walked further away from people coming in our direction. With dogs, I distracted her or turned her in another direction to minimize her reactivity. Her maximum time before tiring is about 45 minutes. She’s still gaining strength after having her puppies.
She has toys to play with and likes a good tug of war with you and the toy. She would love to run around or roll in the grass if she had a yard.
She is presently in a condominium complex and has met a number of the neighbours (on her terms) and wags her tail and is happy.
She is a wonderful dog and would make a great addition to a home without a dog. She needs to be the only one. She is a beautiful soul and anyone who adopts her as their forever dog will truly lover her. She is no trouble at all and will bring her human(s) lots of joy. She certainly deserves to be pampered after all she’s been through.
