Jersey- Adoption Pending

ABOUT ME

If you are looking for a fun, energetic and beautiful girl, Jersey is it!

Jersey is 3 years old and recently pulled from a shelter as a stray. She is absolutely loving her new life and truly is thankful. She is a happy dog and always smiling and eager to learn.

Jersey has been with us for almost 4 months and while we aren’t sure of her past, her scars note it likely wasn’t great. In these past 4 months Jersey has completely come out of her shell into a comfortable and confident dog. It has been amazing to watch her flourish but it’s time for her to find a home of her own – she deserves that.
Jersey is a 3 year old medium to high energy dog so an active family would be best for her. She is a very strong 50-60 pounds and does have a high prey drive so a fenced in yard would be ideal to keep her safely at home however she is very quiet so apartment living could be fine if you can guarantee she will get exercise.
She has come a long way on her leash walking but will definitely need continued training to keep this going well. She is very happy, friendly and a bit rambunctious at times so older kids would be better for her. She is house broken and does not seem destructive but will need an adjust time as most dogs do. She also loves belly rubs, snuggling with people, car rides, adventures, walks, and toys.
It would be great to find someone willing to continue her training or perhaps get her into dog sports. She is extremely smart and treat motivated which has been good for her to learn a lot in her foster home so we’d love to see that continue. She would be perfectly happy being the only pet but could also live with the right male dog after a meet.
If you think Jersey is a great fit for your family please fill out an application, we’d love to hear from you!
