Jade absolutely adores people. She can be a bit over-friendly when first meeting new people but she simply loves everyone. Jade views herself as a lap dog and loves to get belly-rubs and any other attention someone might provide. She is great with children and is an all over love-bug.
Jade is fostered with other dogs however she is a very dominate personality. Jade is a jealous dog and does not share attention well although she knows she is supposed to. When told to behave Jade has no problem with other dogs but if a new visitor lets her slip she will push boundaries. Jade will guard food from other dogs but not people. Feeding her in her crate eliminates the "competition" for her and is much more peaceful. Jade is not inherently aggressive or reactive with dogs however her dominance would be an issue with another dominant dog. Jade does best with indifferent or submissive dogs. Simply put Jade is a pushy queen bee who doesn't like that challenged.
Jade has been around cats on multiple occasions and done extremely well. She doesn't seem to have any worries about the cats and is much more focused on any people who are around.
Although Jade is a mature adult she is still very energetic and enjoys romping in the woods at her foster home. She is an athletic girl and would do really well in a home with a moderate jogger or a hiker. Jade has a lot of love to give to anyone who is willing to understand her quirks. She is great in the house, loves to ride in the car, and has been waiting a long time for a home to call her own.
