WE WISH WE COULD SAY “ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE”, BUT IN JENNA”S CASE, IT’S GOING TO TAKE A LOT MORE.

We plucked little Jenna out of a bad situation and placed her in foster to start her new life. Unsocialized, fearful of humans and unused to things that most young dogs take for granted like belly rubs, a leash walk around the neighbourhood, or being fed yummy food on a regular schedule.

Fortunately in the hands of a wonderful foster family Jenna has made huge progress. The presence of another confident, easy dog in the home started the ball rolling. She loves the freedom of zoomies with her foster sibling in her fenced yard, playing with her toys and actually relaxing and snoozing in the sun. Today, although still mistrustful of new humans that she meets, sometimes Jenna will cautiously warm up to them, especially if there are treats in it for her. After a month of putting on the brakes when a leash appeared, signaling a street walk, Jenna now allows a leash and harness to be put on and does well on early morning walks before there is too much action on the street to contend with).

She loves her foster parents and they have gained her trust. She is lovable, sweet and cuddly with them. And, although she may still have some accidents in the house, she is on the road to being completely housetrained. Jenna is spayed, vaccinated and microchipped. 

So here’s what Jenna needs:

-A patient family, experienced with fearful dogs, another confident dog in the home.

-Someone at home with time on their hands and a commitment from the family to helping her be the best that she can be.

-Jenna is a flight risk and therefore there must be a secure fenced yard and no swimming pool unless it has a separate, secure fence all around.

-No children under 12.

-NO condos, apartments or duplexes.
