FOSTER UPDATE: Jewel is a smart dog and very much a puppy; she is not crated. She loves to play with toys, steal socks or shoes, counter surf, and snatch things off the coffee table. A verbal scolding keeps Jewel in line. If she gets too snappy during play, she’s told ‘No’ and she stops. After her first week in foster, Jewel thought Patches the cat was a toy and tried to pick him up in her mouth. Patches was not amused but did not jump off the couch; the cat realized that Jewel was not being aggressive. However, if Jewel went to a home with a cat, supervision and a dog-free zone for the cat would be a good idea until both animals get used to each other. On her walks, Jewel is friendly toward people but is unsure about children. Housebreaking is ongoing and Jewel is learning fast. She loves to walk and ride in the car. She responds to her name and ‘come,’ ‘off’ and ‘scoot.’
