Jillian is a pretty Schnauzer mix (we have NO idea what she is a mix of but she sure is cute and looks a bit Schnauzery!) who values time with her beloved family above all else. She has been in a loving home since she was about three years old and she is now 9.
She had a happy life until her family started having children and now that they have three, including a 6 month old and a 2 year old, all that kiddie energy and unpredictability was making Jillian too unsettled so now it is time for a new, kidless home for this lovely girl. She started having anxiety around the kids and also separation anxiety with too much coming and going of family in her life.
Her owner gave us some very detailed notes about Jillian that we will be happy to share with you when you come to meet her.
She likes to adapt to your schedule and go to bed when you do and get up when you do. Her favorite place is in bed with family but she can handle being beside your bed at night also. She wants to be wherever you are and will follow you around like a shadow. Jillian loves attention and feels that her place is by your side.
Jillian is housetrained and potties for you nicely when taken out on the leash. She sits on command, comes when she is called, and likes to be a good girl. When petting and snuggle time is over, you can say All Done and she will go lie down.
Jillian is friendly to strangers. She will bark and run to greet guests since she is happy to see them and get petted. She is always sweet to new adults.
Her prior owner said Jillian is even good about letting you know when she needs something. For instance, sneezing often means she wants to potty or is thirsty or hungry. She is attentive and likes to keep in touch with you and for you to be aware of her.
She is fine with some dogs but may not appreciate others so would probably be happiest as an only dog.
Basically, Jillian is a lovely, affectionate girl who has just developed anxiety issues since there have been, what she considers, too many children added to her previously peaceful household.
She needs a new owner that is looking for a real companion dog, preferably a retired person or a home with at least one work from home person. Her new family will need to have experience working with separation anxiety so that Jillian learns that she can relax in the knowledge that you will always come back to her when you leave.
She did not get regular walks in her prior home so she does need a new owner who will take her for regular and good walks, a really great stress reducer for both dog and owner.
Jillian is a chunky 34 pounds (does not care to be picked up or carried but that can be awkward with a 34 pound dog so probably has not been comfy for her) and she needs to lose a LOT of weight! Those regular walks and food portion control will be important in her new home so she can shed the bulk and regain a much more petite figure.
She seems to be low or non shedding. Her fur is currently clipped very short but she can have a fluffier look if you like.
She has been well cared for and, at her most recent check up in July, the vet said she was in good health.
