Jodi is definitely a delicate little lady who likes nothing more than to be on your lap and be petted as much as you are willing. If you stop, she will nudge you to let you know she is not quite finished yet.
Jodi has learned to walk on a leash while she has been in foster, but is still a little hesitant when she is around things she is not familiar with. She sleeps at night in her crate (but she would be much happier sleeping in bed next to you). Although she was not very social when she first came to us, her foster has been very good about exposing Jodi to new people and things, and Jodi is coming along beautifully, although she may always be a bit reserved around new people and things. However, once she gets to know you, you are her best friend.
Due to her fragile build, Jodi will need a home with older children who understand how to handle a dog of her delicate structure. Jodi will also need a home where she can be inside most of the time, not only due to weather conditions, but also because of her small size she could be easy prey for local raptors or even large feral animals. Jodi is very cute and affectionate, but being her human will come with a willingness to take extra care and precautions on her behalf be being with her when she is outside.
