Story
Groll is a loyal companion. He loves to relax and cuddle all day, but is always up for an adventure. We take him to the wetlands often. He seems very stressed with our 1 year old child and often growls, barks, or even lunges at him if he isn’t in the mood to be bothered. He is also reactive towards other dogs and cats. I’ve found him to be very protective of our family- even the baby 😆 He loves to run around the yard, chase after squirrels, and play with us. He is very spry for being a senior dog. When we adopted him he was already missing a few teeth and did have some problems with his teeth but it has seemed to improved with his better diet. Groll loves to take baths and get clean, he prances around afterwards. I think he would do really well with someone who doesn’t have small children and has a quiet calm environment. He would also love a space that he can run around in, but he is also happy being curled on next to you on the couch/in bed. He follows me around wherever I go.

Story
To apply or see more of Jewel, go to: https://www.heartsforpawsrescue.com/219873/2023/5/14/jewel-bylpa I'm Jewel, a girl with an unknown past who landed at a local shelter as a stray. Call me mysterious ;) I’m having a hard time remembering what was before this, but I'm all about embracing the present and looking forward to a better life! I'm an energetic terrier mix, a sprightly 1 ½ years old, and I tip the scales at a petite 15 lbs! Impressive, I know! Currently, I'm holding down the fort (aka my foster home) alongside a 28lb female dog sibling. I can get along with a friendly small dog in my new family, but you know what? I could also thrive as the shining star, the only pet stealing all the love and attention. Now, about cats – no thanks, that's a hard NO from me. That would be a disaster! When I first left the shelter, I quickly bonded with my foster mom, but here's the surprise … I soon found that my foster dad gives the best belly rubs! I realized he wasn’t so scary after all! I'm a bit of an alert barker when someone new enters the house, but give me some time, a few meet-and-greets, and I'll warm up to them. I'm at my happiest when I'm with my people, and oh boy, am I a snuggly lap dog once I’m comfy. That’s why I’m seeking cool parents who will allow me on the couch! To keep myself entertained, I love playing with toys and chews, and I'm pretty treat-motivated. Food puzzles, snuffle mats – bring 'em on! They help engage my senses during the day since I’m fancy like that! What can I say, I like to keep busy! I’m honing my leash walking skills, am housetrained, and can use a dog door! Yep, that's me, a little smarty! Given my small size, I'd do best with a family with older children. Due to my shyness, I might not make the best impression during a meet & greet, but I really hope that won't deter people from giving me a chance! I'm in search of special adopters who will be understanding and patient, allowing me the time and space to gradually come out of my shell at my own pace. I’m a total love bug when you’ve earned my trust, I promise! Jewel’s Adoption Donation is SPONSORED! Includes - spayed rabies dhpp bordatella and chipped. Jewel is being fostered in SACRAMENTO, CA.
