Can I be the jelly to your peanut butter?
Updates from Foster Home:
Pupdate 2:Jelly went to the Madison Night Market and met tons of people! She enjoyed flaunting her yellow "adopt me" bandana and make lots of new friends. We've noticed she can be a little sassy about sharing with other dogs - she needs to be monitored around water and food. Today, Jelly is enjoying snuggling on our laps and watching TV by the window... Turns out, sometimes she's chill too!.
Pupdate 1: Jelly's a pretty cool pup. She's high energy, sassy and spunky. She enjoys her foster dog siblings, and does well with just about every dog. While your guess is as good as ours about what mix of breeds she has some herding characteristics and will bite ankles when she's following people or other dogs. We're working on that, but because of it it's probably best she not be adopted to families with really young children. She enjoys chasing sticks and toys but she'll sneak right up and grab them from other dogs, so those interactions should also be monitored. She rides well in the car and walks great on the leash.
Her new family can expect regular pup behaviors to work on: chewing, house training, kennel training, basic obedience, and energy! She grew up on the end of a chain, so she's just brushing up on her manners now. She's been doing fairly well with her house training - we supervise her closely when she's out in the house and let her out often. She's catching on to our routine and knows that when she gets let out of the kennel or wakes up from a nap she goes straight outside. She does well in her kennel when we aren't supervising her and sleeps there overnight. She'll whine a little bit, but gives up and goes to sleep quickly. She sleeps ALL night, which has been so great!
She's working on 'sit' and 'come' right now. She's super treat motivated, so she makes training a breeze! She would love to go to puppy classes if her adopter wanted to take Fetch up on their training class reimbursement program. Jelly is also super excited to be alive, as most pups are, and likes to play play play! She tires out with a walk or two, or a half day of daycare, but as she gets older she may need more exercise and her furever family should be prepared for that if it's necessary! She's looking forward to meeting you!
