What do you get when you cross the look of a delicious doberman with that of a perfect pittie princess? Jada! (Also a doberman “pittie-scher.”) Yep 7 month-old Jada is far too young to appreciate what a stunner she is but she took my literal breath away the moment that we met. Of course I wasn’t alone. On a recent visit to the park a young couple stopped to admire Jada for so long they surely missed their dinner plans (and without a single regret). But this miniature dynamo isn’t just a pretty face. Jada also has personality for days and on that very same park visit got me (and more than a few others) chuckling by blissfully plopping down to chew on a squeaky toy then forgoing that to roll endlessly in a giant pile of leaves. Jada is sweet, playful (clearly), a good walker, appears to be housebroken, a playgroup rockstar, and just the most special and sweetest “pittie-scher” the world has ever known. In need of a smile (more like a full-belly laugh)? Then clear your calendar and come see miss Jada. You’ll be happy you did. Jada is waiting at Manhattan’s ACC.
Jada pulls a bit on the leash. She was excited but very interested in interacting with handler during assessment – jumped up. Jada was excited (mouthy light) during some of the handling items, but had soft body language. She followed the assessor when playing tag, grabbing at the leash with a calm and relaxed body language Jada was easy to handle when chewing on toys
Jada needs a significant amount of exercise, mental stimulation. The behavior department feels that she may do best with an experienced adopter who can follow up on this behavior
Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions.
Sensitivity: 2. Dog repeatedly turns toward the Assessor’s hand, with loose body and open mouth, mouths the hand, but does not apply pressure. Or, dog licks hands while lips are long.
Tag: 2. Follows at end of leash, body soft, played tug of war with the leash and was easy to distract her.
Squeeze 1/2: 2. Dog gently places her open mouth over the Assessor’s hand without applying pressure.
Toy 1. Dog settles down close to chew, will relinquish toy to you.
Dog allowed touching. Wiggly.
