1-2 years old
Jodie came from a hoarding case in Stockton. She was pregnant when she was rescued & had puppies in May. She was a great mom & let her foster person handle her puppies daily.
It took Jodie 4 & 1/2 months before she would go out to the yard with my dogs. She recently started going out for leashed walks. It’ll take awhile before Jodie gets used to your family & friends. When she is scared, she will bark & back away.
Jodie needs a patient, supportive person & maybe a dog mentor to help her blossom. Experience with shy, fearful dogs & using positive reinforcement a plus! She is not destructive when left alone for a few hrs. She will bark if she hears a strange noise outside.
She is a clever dog, is food motivated & learning some commands. When she accomplishes something, Jodie is so pleased with herself & asks for extra pets & tummy rubs. She is athletic & can jump over a 30” fence easily.
