Jackie was one of our office dogs. Here is what our clerks said about her, 'She is super sweet, very calm. She she bonded with our pregnant clerk as she was a previous mama dog. She would bring all her toys to hide by her new friend. Very treat motivated, would be a therapeutic dog!'
Poor Jackie was witnessed being thrown from a moving car. Unfortunately, she fractured left front leg and required surgery. Lucky for her, she landed in a foster home to recover and has been doing very well and healing nicely!!
Her foster says, 'She is the sweetest! My boyfriend and I are very attached to her and she loves us like crazy. She is getting a lot better. She can run and jump and do all the normal dog things now. We try not to let her do it but sometimes she is too excited! She has learned “sit” really well and she often recognizes her name. Now that Jackie is feeling better, she is ready for her forever home! She is a super loving girl and I want her to live her best life. We agreed to foster her even though I work 12+ hour days since she was on strict cage rest anyway. She is absolutely beside herself when I finally come home because she’s been cooped up all day. Now that she is healed, she needs a home that will give her the love and affection she needs. Jackie is still scared of cars and walks because of her traumatic history of car rides but I know that the right person would help her fall in love with walks easily! She just needs patience and lots of encouragement.'
One of our volunteers says, 'She is the sweetest, most affectionate thing ever. You'll fall in love!'
Jackie has not been dog or cat tested due to her broken leg so a meet and greet/overnight with any resident pets is recommended.
