Hi! My name is Jada and I am a beautiful 3 year old lady. I was taken to this scary place called the shelter after my family decided they did not want me any more. I was incredibly scared and confused – I thought family meant we stuck together forever. The staff at the shelter said I would not eat and had to be carried in and out of my cage. I was too scared to even walk. But then something great happened: SGSR came along and got me out of that place with the promise that I will never, ever have to go back!
I have been working to gain weight since I was all skin and bones underneath my fluffy fur by the time I got out of the shelter. So far, I have put on about 10 pounds in the past month and need to gain a little more. I live with two GSD siblings in my foster home. My foster brother is very dominant (I’m not sure what that means, but he’s pretty bossy) and I get along fine with him and take his corrections well. My foster sister is an SGSR alumni. She and I play together nonstop. In fact, we will even try to play when we’re in bed, so my foster mom crates us at night … for some reason she doesn’t like it when we start playing on top of her at 3am.
I go in my crate easily and don’t mind staying in there at night, as long as my foster sister is with me. My foster parents say that I am 100% trustworthy, so I get to have free roam of the house with my foster siblings when they’re not home. I have a medium energy level – I can run and play with my foster sister, but also love to just lie around the house at my people's feet. I absolutely love to be petted and would probably stand next to my foster mom for hours, as long as she kept rubbing me. I also like to jump up on the furniture and sit on top of my foster parents – the closer I can get to them, the better. I am such a sweet girl and have so much love to give!
Jada is an incredibly sweet dog, and would be great for a first time GSD owner. She is very easy, and you can hand feed her. She has 0 food aggression with other dogs, which can be a problem as she will allow them to shove her out of the way and steal her food. Due to this if she goes to a home with other dogs, she will need to be watched while fed, or separated. She would need a home with a submissive dog in it. She loves cuddling and getting her ball thrown.
DUE TO LACK OF ADOPTION COORDINATORS, JADA CAN ONLY BE ADOPTED OUT TO NC, VA, and MD.
