    Extra! Extra! Read all about how well I am doing!!!

    Why hello friends, it’s been a few months since I have been safe, warm and well fed in AARCS care and I gotta tell you all about it! Jade is the name….being a wiggle bum is my game. I am a fun loving gal of about 7 years old, I love going for walks, chilling out on the couch with my foster momma, playing with squeaky toys and just loving life!
    When I first came into the shelter I was pretty much skin and bones, I spent a few month there trying to gain some weight and get stronger but all of the other dogs were stressing me out, so I gave my foster mom some good sad puppy dog eye action and she busted me out of there! I have been learning what it is like to be a kept dog and I gotta tell ya it is the life. I love living in a nice warm home, having 2 square meals a day, my own kennel and bed to chill and relax in when the hooman goes to work…..and daily walks!
    I absolutely love going for walks and investigating the world….you have never seen a wiggle bum like mine when it comes time to get the harness on and the leash off the hook. The funny part about something that I love so much is that it also puts me in direct contact with things that I am afraid off….other dogs. But I am such a brave girl I am willing to risk possible contact with other dogs just to get out and about in the world. I do need my hooman to work with me to help advocate on my behalf in these situations so I don’t feel the need to verbally express my concern with other dogs. What can I say I am a complicated gal….layers!
    What I would love from you is to continue helping me build up my confidence, it would be preferred that you do not have any other dog in the home…right now. Maybe in time we can talk about adding a fur sibling but right now I just want all of your love to myself. I am a big girl and as I continue to put on much needed weight and muscle, I get stronger every day. So I do need someone who can handle me physically when I get scared so I don’t get into a situation that can escalate. As I tend to over react to new stimulus it would be best to not have any small humans but I don’t mind cats….cats are good, they leave me alone and I leave them alone.

    You have never seen a wiggle bum like mine……seriously it turns into a whole body dance when I get the engine going!
