Meet Jules!

Jules was born on 11-23-01 and is just 6 years old. Jules was in rescue previously and had been placed but when her family had a new baby they gave her up to rescue again. She has just been groomed but we are showing you her before and after pictures – what a cutie she is!

We do believe Jules has been misnamed and should be Jewels! She is certainly a gem! She has not had any accidents in the house, minds well, sits to have her leash on or off, sits for treats, and sits to be served her food. She is not a big barker, but when she does hear something outside, she always stops barking when asked. She asks permission before getting on the couch and is sleeping all night in the crate with another dog. Jules has a charming personality, pawing at your arm or hand for more scratches when you stop, and doing a little dance when you scratch at the base of her tail. She is so happy that her whole body wags when she wags her tail, and she cocks her head to one side when you talk to her. She is affectionate and well mannered.

Jules is a little overweight at 13 ˝ pounds, but we are trying to help her with that. She is a little shy around newcomers, but with a little kindness, patience, and cheese (which she loves), she comes around quite quickly. She travels well in a crate in the car. We were told by her former owner that she is afraid of new men – but we have not seen her exhibit that behavior -- just a general shyness around all strangers, and certainly no aggression.

Jules will play with a toy, and she has started to interact with other dogs, play, and zoom. We have been told that Jules has separation anxiety and needs to be with another dog. As her foster mom has several other griffs – we haven’t seen that behavior yet – however we are looking for a home with at least one other small dog to keep her company.

Jules is spayed and current on vaccines. She is heartworm negative and takes heartworm preventative.

Jules really needs to find her forever home this time. She needs patience and love and will reward her new owner with affection in return. Jules is being fostered in Arkansas.

If you are interested in adoption please fill out our Adoption Application. If you would like more information, please contact Vicki.

Keep in mind that we prefer to place dogs within driving distance of where they are being fostered. If someone from outside the local area is approved for adoption, they must be willing to fly in to get the dog and that can only happen if the dog is stable enough to travel in the cabin with the passenger.
