JETTA is a female Border Collie mix, maybe Border Collie/Lab. She weighs about 48 pounds and is about 2 years old.
She has been loved and well cared for her entire life, but she needs a new home due to family allergies. Although it is very difficult for the family to give her up, they feel that its better for Jetta that she be able to live in the house instead of having to stay outside all the time.
Jetta is a fun, happy girl who is a medium energy dog with plenty of get up and go. She would be a fantastic hiking partner and beach combing buddy. She loves to go for walks as well, and is good on leash. She pulls just barely, but not enough to make it uncomfortable.
She is very indifferent to people she doesn’t know, but once she gets to know you, she looks at you with sparkling eyes and a happy smile. She saves this look for HER people. She will also put her paw on your knee or lap, a very cute jesture when she wants to tell you that she likes you. You will not get this the first time you meet her, she saves it for when she knows someone better and decides she likes them.
Jetta knows basic commands – SIT, DOWN, STAY. She gets along with all the dogs here, but kind of keeps her distance from them. She is the type of dog who prefers her person to other dogs.
She rides great in the car and lays down in the back of my station wagon and is quiet the whole time. Her off-leash recall isn’t perfect, but she is very good about coming when I call.
Jetta is spayed, current on shots and microchipped.
If you are interested in giving Jetta a permanent home:
- If I don’t get back to you within 24 hours, keep trying.
- If you leave me a voice message, PLEASE speak clearly and slowly repeat your phone number (cell phones leave awful messages on land phones!!).
- I cannot return calls if your phone does not accept blocked calls.
- Let me know how late I can call.
Please note: I work to find each dog the home that meets their individual needs. They (the dogs) are my clients, and my “customers”, not people. My process is not “first come, first served”. I am not trying to place each dog as-fast-as-possible, but rather doing my best to ensure that when I choose a home for one of my beloved fosterdogs, that it is one that will deserve and earn the priviledge of having that dog as a family member, and will prioritize their needs with the same dedication that is afforded to all family members.
