Jellybean is a 2-3 year old, 10lb Poodle/Schanuzer mix. Please read the FULL bio before applying to adopt this sweet, special girl.
Jellybean is every foster’s dream dog. She is sweet, easy going, quiet, gets along with all the other dogs and cats and even tries to mother the foster kittens. She’s unassuming and shy, so she isn’t demanding tons of attention or having destructive separation anxiety when you’re gone, but when you’re back she runs up to smile and wag her tail to say that she’s thrilled you’re back. You’ll find while you’re asleep, she’ll tuck herself into an adorable but unobtrusive spot right next to you. But she’s also every foster’s worst nightmare…because she is so sweet, easy, and content (not to mention, tiny and adorable) it’s hard not to want to just keep her forever. I mean REALLY hard. And even moreover when you realize that no matter how in-depth and completely you explain who Jellybean is: a dog who will seem aloof and shy when you meet her, she won’t make an instant connection to you but will have to be adopted with the understanding it’ll take a couple of weeks to build a bond that will make her your forever, loving, loyal friend, you’ll still have at least 3 awkward adoption appointments where weird excuses will get made at why she’s not wanted.
Even telling you now EXACTLY how it is, in the back of your mind you’re thinking “I bet I can be the one she would instantly bond with.” You won’t be. But what you will have in Jellybean is a dog who WILL love you completely, on her own timeline, you’ll be her whole world. And even better if you have a dog or dogs who needs a best friend to play with…she LOVES dog friends who will romp around and chase tails with her. You’ll have a dog who has a silly smile and will make you laugh every day. Once you have her love, she’ll work hard to be your best friend. Jellybean is a couple year old poodle/Schnauzer mix, we think, fully vetted and groomed, and ready to find her perfect human companion. She’ll need to continue working on leash skills and potty training, though she does great when she has stable routines and direction. I really adore this dog, and she’s one of the truly special ones I’ve had the honor of fostering. Becoming her best friend will no doubt make you a happier and better human.
