A volunteer writes: Jazz is such a doll. She sits so proper with her tail wagging mouth open that I have to take her out first of all the dogs in the the Kennel. We are outside and she is full of life. She sniffs everything she sees so happy, even rolling in some good smelling stuff on the side walk that I can’t see but boy does she love it and it makes me laugh because she is so happy. She is smart too. I tried to teach her “SIT” I don’t think she had ever heard that before but really wanted to figure out what I was saying to her. She eventually did sit and get her well deserved treat.
Another volunteer writes: Take a look at the volunteer comments on Jazz’s walking log and the common theme of “such a sweet dog” will ring out loud and clear. We can’t all be wrong :). She’s a delight who loves to snuggle and give kisses, and made new friends as we walked to the park as her tail wags to everyone. She posed for pictures with an adorable smile and cutely got tangled up in the leash as I snapped away. Social, pretty, and a perfect companion for a date to the park, Jazz is looking for a new family to take care of. A proven family dog, she’s hoping you’ll visit today and ask to meet her.
Jazz A1071148 is an approx 5 year old AMST who was rescued by the owner and is being surrendered because of pet conflict. The owner has been caring for her for a year. She was last seen by a vet in 2015 and currently has no known health issues.
Jazz is friendly and outgoing with strangers. She has been around young children and is very friendly and plays exuberanlty with them. She lived in the home with 3 other dogs and plays exuberantly and also very rough with them. The owner stated that her playing has led to a few conflicts. She lived in the home with 6 cats but was kept in a separate room from them. She has not bitten anyone or any other animal.
Jazz went potty in the backyard. She has no accidents in the home. She loves bath time and was bathed with the backyard hose. She loves to chase the water. She is not bothered by the following: having her food bowl/treats/toys taken away from her, fireworks/thunderstorms, being restrained or pushed off of furniture.
WHAT A NEW FAMILY SHOULD KNOW
Jazz is described as friendly, affectionate, playful, active, and a good runner. She loves to play fetch and tug. She plays very rough with the other dogs but plays gently with her owner and his father. She is crate trained and slept in her crate. She pulls very hard on the leash but is mostly let loose in the yard. She is well behaved when left alone in the yard. She was fed Pedigree dry food.
BEHAVIOR DURING INTAKE
Jazz was friendly and allowed all handling. She allowed to be scanned(-), collared and photographed. She likes to play and when she heard the squeaky toy, she became very excited. She wagged her tail and had an open mouth. She was then walked and transferred into a kennel.
When off leash with other dogs, Jazz uses bows and vocalizations to solicit pushy play.
CAME IN WITH : UNKNOWN COMPANION
Jazz came into our center along with another dog as an owner surrender, citing Jazz plays too rough with the resident German Shephard. It is reported she has been around young children, very friendly and plays exuberantly with them. She lived in a home with 3 other dogs and would play exuberantly and very rough with them. Owner reports Jazz also lived with 6 cats but they were in a separate room. Owner reports Jazz is housebroken to go outside in the backyard, is crate trained to sleep in it at night. It is reported Jazz is not bothered if anyone touches her Food, Toys, Treats. She is described as friendly, affectionate, playful, active, and a good runner. During intake, Jazz was friendly, wagging tail and open mouth, allowed all handling. Jazz held gaze for three full seconds during Look item, relaxed. She leaned into assessor during Sensitivity item, lip lick, ears back. Jazz playfully ran along during Tag game, settled easily at end. She did not pull her paw back on both Squeeze attempts, licking assessor’s hand. Jazz briefly had enthusiastic bouts of play with Toy, but quickly lost interest. This may be due to environment as owner reports she loves to play fetch and tug. When off leash with other dogs, Jazz uses bows and vocalizations to solicit pushy play. The Behavior Team feels Jazz would do well with an Average adopter.
