A volunteer writes: Looking for a furry foot warmer as the weather gets colder. You’ve found her, and her name is Jenny! Sleeping in her kennel when I approached she woke when I called her name and came forward to be leashed. Jenny has great leash manners, went potty the moment we were out the door and posed for pictures with a little smile on her face. In the park she wistfully watched a dog running around off leash and I could hear the thoughts running through her head wishing it could be her. Jenny joins us as the only family she’s ever known feels she’s too anxious. Purchased from a breeder as a puppy, she lived well with the child in the house (now age 6), plays gently with kids and adults, lived and played gently with a new puppy, is housetrained and wee wee pad trained, “will hug you really tight”, doesn’t guard her things, doesn’t like baths, likes toys and to play chase. Jenny’s favorite treat is cheese (mmmm, mine too!). Jenny joined both a male and female on an off leash play date and allowed them to greet her before exploring the yard. Soft, gentle, and calm, it’s clear that Jenny is working through this new episode in her life. I’d love for the next chapter to read: Jenny went home with her new person and lived happily ever after. Come meet sweet Jenny today.
