** UPDATE **
Jess is very fearful of strangers and we are working on her barking and growling response to people entering our home. She is slowly wanting to be closer to me although she is still more comfortable on the floor with her head in my lap for gentle face rubs and stroking than being picked up or being on my lap. She is starting to lay beside me on the couch on occasion but seems to prefer to share the other couch with the other dogs. I prefer not to think about the cause for her reactions sometimes. When picked up she appears to play dead, either freezing stiff or going limp entirely. Both can make transitioning to her crate difficult. Jessie is intensely stressed when crated. She stays in her vericrate as she destroys anything in reach, and even things you think are not within her reach. She makes a deep gutteral noise when crated which does not even sound like a dog. I have placed very durable chew toys in her crate to try to redirect her chewing and scratching but she seems oblivious to them there. Throughout the rest of the house I have chew toys for her to work on as she tends to steal items from throughout the house to chew. Pens and chap sticks from the coffee table tend to be favourites as well as snacks from the litter box. Therefore, I try to not leave her unsupervised for even short periods of time and keep the house as dog proof as possible. But even the coffee table and bedroom stool have chewed corners.
She gets along well with the other dogs and likes to play with them. For the most part she ignores the cats, but can be a follower if Sweetie wants to chase them. She is becoming more playful as she settles(which is taking a good while) and seems to have a strong hunting drive. She MUST have a fully fenced yard as she will run at squirrels full tilt even when on a leash, to the point that she is flipping herself in her efforts to get were she wants to be. Other times she wanders serenely around the yard and you would never know she was capable of such speed and determination. She eats well and is not food aggressive.
Her routine and feeding is identical to Sweetie's as she gets up when Sweetie gets up. A simple brush seems to be all the grooming required for her lovely coat. I feel strongly that she will need a home with lots of time and patience and experience with training fearful dogs and would not recommend her with children at all due to her terror with people and their inability to interpret her body language.
Jessie has arrived. She is an exceptionally soft dog in temperament and actions. She is very quiet. she traveled well in the crate- but drooled d/t stress. She will need a quiet home that is not overbearing/ overwhelming for her.
She has no recall and will be learning her name .
She has no clue on what a leash is or means... and will need time- patience to show her in a low key environment... and then building on that.. as her comfort level increases.
Jessie and sweetie are fascinated by the cats from a distance so far
More to come as we learn / confirm this dogs needs as she settles in foster care..
We welcome your application for consideration .
