Meet adorable Jewel!
Update from Jewel's New England foster family (2/18/13):
Jewel is such a sweetheart and is doing GREAT in all areas of life!! Although she has settled in nicely into our routine and lifestyle, Jewel would love to find her own forever family with older kids. People are Jewels lifeline to happiness! Jewel has loved everyone who she has met from teenagers to older people; loves them all.
This pup is VERY CUDDLY, SWEET and LOVEABLE. A doggie friend to hang out would be a bonus. Cats are not a problem and she has only shown minimal interest in them over time.
Housebreaking is going super; no accidents. At night, she is crated in a very large, covered wire crate, does fine; may wake up once for a potty break. During the day, Jewel stays in an indoor kennel with newspapers and plenty of bones and toys next to our youngest dog. However, she would prefer to be with her family whenever possible and would probably have a hard time being crated for a full day.
Jewel is fed a quality puppy dry food and canned meat twice a day. She lives with 3 indoor cats, 3 dogs varying in size and age, 3 adults and an older teenager; does fine with everyone. Outside playtime is in a large fenced in area; leash walking will need more practice by her adoptive family. Doing well with basic training – sit, wait, off and leave it. No problems traveling in the car-would love to be included on all those family outings.
If you are looking for a puppy that loves her family, fine with other animals, cuddling on the couch, has a great temperament, sweet disposition, smart, adorable and very affectionate – look no further, Jewel may be your pup! Jewel would make a GREAT addition to the right family who will continue her training, provide learning opportunities, unconditional love and make her a special part of their family.
Jewel is an approx. 9-10 month old female terrier mix (as of 12/31/12) and is 28 pounds. Jewel was rescued from a high kill shelter and is wonderful with her foster mom's cat and her son. She is also good with other dogs and is working on crate training. She has a very sweet and loving personality. [ see foster mom update below]
Jewel is Heartworm negative, microchipped, and up to date on all vaccines. Please consider adding Jewel to your family.
Donation: $450.00 (includes $140.00 transport fee paid directly to USDA approved transport company where applicable).
Interested in adopting this fantastic canine? Please visit our website and complete an online application – we respond much quicker to applications than to emails as we receive a voluminous amount of email each day and it’s impossible to respond to all of them in a timely manner even though we try.
An application does not mean you are required to adopt – it just lets us know you are seriously considering this dog for adoption.
We are often asked, "Why would you charge 'so much' for a rescue pet? Why not just place it in a good home?" The answer is because we need adopters who are willing to support ALL rescue pets, not just the dog they adopt. A young, healthy dog might cost us $150-400 in discounted vet care, and many people will want to adopt it; an older dog with health issues can easily cost $500-1500 in veterinary expenses, and it may require months of foster care for rehabilitation yet we can only ask a minimal adoption fee, and it may be a long time until anyone comes forward to adopt him/her. Fees from the younger, more adoptable dogs help offset the cost of caring for the others.
