Hi I am Jolly. I am looking for my own forever home. I am 5 months old and I am a tiny girl weighting about 4 pounds. My sister and our mom Jenna were found outside a veterinary clinic. The clinic folks were very nice to us but a clinic is sort of a scary place and you cannot play too much, and I LOVE to play!
The vet clinic folks called Help a Dog Smile Rescue and now I live in a foster home. I now live with my sister and Uncle Enzo. Enzo is available for adoption just like us, but he is way older and bigger than we are. Enzo is 7 years old and weighs about 13 pounds. We love playing with Enzo. We bite his ears, steal his food, run under his feet making him trip and take his sleeping spot. Sometimes he grumbles at us but we know that he adores us, so we jump on him until he runs away to another room!!! Mostly we play with each other and some of our toys.
My foster mom is very dedicated to my potty training lessons, so when I have accidents she takes me outside right away. So now I mostly just wait until I am outside to “do my business”. I always last through the night without having any accidents. I sleep in a kennel or in a dog bed right by my foster mom’s bed. She is so proud of me for sleeping all through the night.
I am smaller than my sister Joy but I have longer legs, so I am faster than she is. I like to meet new people and I love to explore. I am not afraid of anything! My sister Joy and I love to be outside in the yard. There are so many things out there I can put in my mouth. My foster mom takes most of my new-found treasures away, but she always replaces them with little pieces of yummy carrots. I MUST always have someone out in the yard with me to keep me safe. I am simply too little to be exploring the yard on our own.
My foster mom is teaching me some commands. I know how to “stay” and I come to her when she whistles. If she claps her hands real loud I stop what I am doing, (this mostly happens when we are jumping on Enzo or chewing his ears and he makes that real funny grumbling noise).
I am a healthy puppy. I have been spayed and have a micro-chip. I did have to have puppy shots too but I am all done with that. Yay!
I am ready for my forever home. Are you ready for me? Because I am a puppy I am going to be with my family for a long time, a lifetime. Could you be my new family? If so, I would love to meet you! If you would like to meet me and you live in the Phoenix area, please fill out an online application at http://www.helpadogsmile.org/adopt/application/ . My adoption fee is $250 dollars. Once you fill out an application my foster mom can contact you. She may even visit your home and yard so she can show you what tiny spaces I manage to get into. It seems like her favorite saying around me is “something else to puppy proof”.
