This striking young lady with the dazzling smile is Jazzy! She's a Pit Bull Terrier Mix who's almost a year old, spayed, current on her vaccinations, microchipped, house trained & crate trained and is content hanging out in her crate with a few chew toys. She's been around the dogs in her Foster Home and has behaved well but hasn't had a chance to play or spend time with them but we think she'd be happy if her Forever Home has an energetic, playful dog, although it's not a requirement. Jazzy gets along great with her Foster Family's cat, who is calm and doesn't run around the house or entice her to chase him. She's friendly, very playful and is a good girl around kids yet tends to jump on them in her excitement, which she's working on.
Jazzy came into our lives when one of our Rescue Partners was dropping off some donations at a local Animal Control. As she was leaving, she saw a dog army-crawl out of a doghouse, with a face that shocked her. Knowing that one of her partners had visited a few weeks earlier and Jazzy didn't have any issues at that time, she rushed the poor girl to a Vet where she was diagnosed with Ringworm and a Staph Infection on her beautiful face! Excellent medical care and a lot of love & TLC, especially from her Foster Parents, have helped her heal completely and she doesn't have any lingering problems!
Jazzy is pretty irresistible, especially when she looks at you with that sweet face & those big, brown eyes! She has the cutest pink ears with dots on them and she has a few dots on her face, which just adds to her charm! She has a gorgeous smile, it's big & very happy, and she has a way of smiling with her tongue hanging out of her mouth that will touch your heart! Seeing her smile at the end of a bad day makes everything much better! More interested in playing than snuggling right now, this young lady is affectionate, loves being with her people and enjoys giving kisses!
Full of energy and very playful, Jazzy thinks playtime should be all day long! She really loves toys and has quite a collection, but her favorites are tennis balls and a wobble ball she can't get enough of! If she had to pick just one toy, which would be hard for her, she'd choose her squeaky Kong tennis ball! When this frisky girl wants to play, she'll run around with her Kong ball in her mouth and bump one of her Foster Parents with it, so they'll play with her or chase her - it's the cutest thing! She's also content playing by herself and will toss her tennis balls around outside then fetch them! Jazzy has a blast in her backyard, running around with her ball or playing with a frisbee. Watching her play is very fun & enjoyable - she has the time of her life and you can't help but smile or laugh as she enjoys herself! When it's time to relax, she enjoys taking naps on her dog bed and being petted. She also loves to spend time chewing on antlers every day and she also likes hooves with frozen peanut better, which help keep her busy and prevent her from chewing.
Jazzy is an intelligent girl who learns quickly! She's still learning, as she was feeling terrible when she first arrived and her Foster Parents were more concerned with her health than training. Once she began feeling better, she started learning commands & behaviors and already knows the commands Sit, Off, Wait, Free, Kennel, Catch and is working on Stay! When she's told to Wait at dinnertime, she'll patiently sit until she hears the word Free - she's such a good girl! She's on a potty schedule and goes after she's been in her crate, after waking up, after playing, after eating or drinking and she does very well with this schedule. She still has a lot of puppy in her and is in a chewing phase so she's crated at night in case she has the urge to nibble on household items when everyone's asleep. Walks are one of her favorite activities with her Foster Parents but she needs more work on leash training as she has a tendency to pull. She loves going for car rides and is a good passenger, if secured nicely. She's enjoyed a few outings to PetSmart and parks, had a great time and behaved very well!
Jazzy looks forward to finding a Forever Family or Person who will play with her, spoil her with toys & treats, and most importantly, love her forever! She will be a great pet who makes life a lot better with her sweetness and smiles!
