found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
When I picked the girls up to bring them to the rescue, I was apprehensive about how Jewel’s demeanor would be after living on her own. I worried for nothing because she gave me kisses all the way home. She was so grateful to be safe, well fed and able to finally relax without fending off starvation and coyote attacks. She came into our home and acted as if she had always been there. She loves people, small children and other dogs. Being a bossy mama dog, she doesn’t like it when other dogs step out of line or get too rough, and she will let them know she is displeased, but she doesn’t do any harm. She hasn’t been around cats, but from what I have seen, she wouldn’t have any issues with cats.
So like most dogs we rescue from the Reservation, Jewel is a mixed-breed dog. She looks most like a black Shar Pei. She is ~45 lbs and 5 years old. She is spayed, crate-trained and house-trained. In fact, she NEVER had even one accident in the house when we brought her home. Jewel is extremely well-behaved. She listens and minds well. She does not jump up on the furniture or on people. Her only weakness is any tasty treat that may be set to close to the edge of the kitchen counter.
Our first trip to the vet with Jewel revealed that she was missing some teeth, had demodex mange and Valley Fever at a titer of 1:16. Now the mange is gone and her Valley Fever is responding excellently to the medication. Her recent test revealed that the titer had decreased to 1:4. That is a pretty amazing decrease in 6 months, so we expect that she will be able to come off her daily medication soon. Until then, she needs 200mg of fluconazole twice daily. It is administered with her food in a pill form and only costs ~$25/month
Jewel has a very mellow temperament. She is not at all hyper or destructive. She does really like to give kisses, so probably shouldn't go to a home with anyone who would get really grossed out by that. She would be an excellent companion for an older person or couple who just want a nice dog to give love.
The adoption fee for Jewel is $100. For more information or to meet Jewel, please contact Delon Washo-Krupps at 602-295-4518 or Delon.Washo@asu.edu
