Jade is not yet ready to be adopted yet, she will be ready very soon. Jade was rescued from a Jackson, TN veterinarian where she had been abandoned by her owners family after the owner was deployed in the military. Jade was not abused, but she was shooed away and not socialized around people. We have been working with Jade now for a month, she is housebroken and will come in and out of the house to do her business. She has learned to trust her foster Mom. She is still timid and scared of men unless they get down on her level and let her come to them. Jade is sweet with children, but we think the best placement would be with older children (10y/o or older), only because if she gets spooked she could accidentally knock down a toddler. Jade is very affectionate to her foster Mom, Jade is learning to walk on a lead which is still a very scary proposition for her. She does get scarred with loud noises like cars, etc. So we walk her with a harness and also securing the lead through the collar as well where she cannot back out of the harness. Please check back on Jade progress if you are interested in giving this gorgeous girl a forever home.
All of our rescues are temperament tested around children of all ages, small and large dogs and cats. They all have basic training, IE; sit; down, come and walking on a lead. We are not a shelter, we are a rescue and all of our rescued dogs are kept in individual foster/volunteers homes. This gives them sometimes their first taste of having a family and being part of that family. Also, it provides us with the understanding of each individual rescue to match them to your family lifestyle and dynamics. As soon as we receive your application back, we will phone you to set up a home visit/meet & greet. If you are out of our area, we would request another rescue and/or veterinary office complete the home visit.
All of our rescues are completely vetted prior to adoption. Also, completed prior to adoptions are heartworm treatments as needed, any medical conditions treated (IE; allergies, demedex, etc.) and any surgeries for dogs coming into the rescue injured (IE; car accidents, etc.). Below is the vetting that all of our rescues receive prior to adoption. We only pull dogs from shelters and approximately 80% of our rescues come into the rescue heartworm positive. Those rescues are treated for heartworms prior to adoption.
