Plenty of my friends are looking

I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Jenny is a fun, upbeat, playful, and extremely people-oriented 11- month-old-terrier mix puppy rescued from the Animal Friends of the Valleys Shelter. She weighs about 8-9 lbs., has long legs and kind of looks like a Yorkie and Border terrier mix. She does not shed and has a short scruffy coat. Jenny loves toys, and as long as she has a small basket of toys, can easily entertain herself. But Jenny’s favorite game is fetch. She brings the ball right back to you! Jenny enjoys other dogs and gets along well with all dogs, small, larger, male, female, because she is highly confident. It is common for Jenny to vocalize when playing with other dogs and also be competitive. Jenny is non-aggressive but she has a confident personality common to many female terrier types. She greets other dogs in a boisterous manner, as if she is saying, “I’M JENNY! Let’s be friends!”
Jenny loves to play interactively with other dogs, even dogs much larger than her. She currently lives in one of the rescue’s foster homes and often plays with Wally, a 45 lb. Border collie mix. They play interactively tug-of-war, wrestling, and occasionally (and this always makes me laugh) you will hear Jenny squeak if Wally occasionally gets too tough, only for her to keep going full bore! Jenny is a versatile dog in that she can be placed with other dogs, or be an only dog in the home as long as her people are the types who enjoy their dog and like to take walks, go to the beach, stuff like that. Jenny rides great in the car and walks well on the leash, but does not always keep focused if she sees something on the ground that she wants to investigate (what can I say, she’s a puppy still!)
Jenny would be fine with kids. She loves everybody. However, if your kids are very young, and if they are still too young to mentally adhere to an instruction, I wouldn’t put it past Jenny to bolt out if a door was inadvertently opened. Not because she is a bolter or an escape artist – not at all. Jenny just wants to be joyful and exploratory and it is just her nature to want to know about everything! The other thing with young kids is that Jenny will still puppy play bite a bit, when humans are playing with her, which is a habit that we are trying to teach her about.
Jenny is doing very well in her potty training with only a very occasional accident. We think it is best that she is placed in a home with a yard. Jenny loves to play, run around, and explore. I would consider her an active dog but also a nice blend of being able to chill out and settle down as well. She is crate-trained and crates VERY WELL, and we feel that whomever adopts her should have a crate on hand to use as a tool during a transitional phase or even afterwards if things are working well with that system and the adopters want that. Her crate purchase would be a small one though, size around 24 by 19 inches. She currently eats in her crate, and sleeps quietly in her crate each night.
When we first rescued Jenny from the shelter, we noticed that she was squinting and blinking. Upon a vet check, we were told that some of her eyelashes were touching her eyeballs instead of growing outward. This caused discomfort, so we raised the money for Jenny to have an eye procedure whereby each rogue eyelash was cryogenically frozen off. She has had two post op rechecks and is cleared for adoption! Jenny is fully vetted, spayed, vaccinated, de-wormed, and micro-chipped. If you are interested in Jenny, please contact Angels Heart Dog Rescue at email@example.com. The phone number to the rescue is: 626-340-9316. There is no need to phone the rescue until you have first submitted an interest via e-mail.
