Jenni is a female American Bulldog, 70 lbs, and roughly 5 years old. Despite all she has been through, she is one of the nicest dogs we've ever met. She came into a high kill shelter in California thin as a rail and still lactating. Probably she was either put out in the cold like yesterday's garbage by a backyard breeder after having her last litter or gave birth in the streets as a stray and lost her babies. She also had an injured eye and bloody ear. (A picture shows Jenni in the shelter on the list to be put to sleep.) But this story has a happy continuation: in her final days at the shelter, Jenni was rescued. She came to Seattle in mid-December.
01/02/13: Now Jenni is back up to a healthy weight, her eye is better, and the infection in her ear is almost gone. However, Jenni has been diagnosed with cancer (squamous carcinoma, due to too much exposure to sunlight and Jenni's light color) in her left ear. She has had an x-ray and samples taken from her glands and the cancer has not spread. However, Jenni's ear will have to be amputated. We are raising money for her surgery. More importantly, we are hoping for a happy ending to Jenni's story to find her a foster or forever home that will love her for the rest of her life.
Jenni is sweet, docile, playful, and medium energy. She loves to sleep, have down time, and take car rides, but also loves to run around and play with her foster dad and the other foster dogs. She seems good around the little dogs. She seems to think the foster's cats are food. She is not aggressive with them and we're trying to train her out of it, but she's not there at least quite yet...maybe a dog-savvy cat would be fine. Jenni is very social and good with human adults and children alike. She is crate trained and housebroken.
Jenni's adoption fee is $250 and includes her spay, basic vaccinations, rabies vaccination, heartworm tested negative, health certificate, and microchip. At this time of year, dog rescues need all the help they can get to make sure dogs are in warm, safe foster homes to be ready for adoption. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for an adoption application or to get in touch to foster (Jenni is currently in temporary foster in Seattle).
