August 24, 2020 – Jada is gone to her forever home today.
July 22, 2020 – Jada has a solid routine down, so no issues with house training and is always happy at mealtime. With the hot weather, we haven’t been as active outdoors. When inside, she is generally pretty lazy. She does get up to mischief on the rare occasion and was on the lookout for snacks the other day (She found a potato and managed to nibble 1/3-1/2 of it before we took it away. Luckily there were no ill effects). She continues to be an even tempered, patient girl who is looking forward to finding her forever home. Her weight seems to be holding at about 31 lbs.
July 9, 2020 – Jada is weighing in at about 31 lb. She is looking very good these days. She continues to love lounging in the sun, having zoomies in the yard, and going for walks. She would take herself out on an adventure if the backyard was not secure/she wasn’t supervised.
April 27, 2020 – Jada is a great mix of lazy cuddle bug and active. She loves being near her people and cuddling on the couch. She is always on the lookout for cozy spot to relax! She will perk up and do a little dance when the harness and leash come out though. She enjoys going for walks around the neighbourhood. She is friendly with strangers and other dogs. She may bark when she sees a dog, but with no ill intent. Her recall is decent, but she might take off if there was something exciting that caught her attention. She is very well behaved in the car. She is currently living with two seniors dogs who are quite low key. She gets along well with them and has never been dominant. She is generally sweet and quiet natured. She enjoys playing with toys. She will play with stuffies and chew on a nylabone.
Jada has been on a weight loss journey and has been doing great. She is down to 32lb and we have moved from a large to a medium harness. She has a good appetite and will eat her food fairly quickly, but does not inhale her food. We have started adding pumpkin which slows her eating and helps her digestion. She is 100% housetrained.
At night she will sleep on a blanket/bed beside our bed or crash on the couch downstairs. She would LOVE to sleep in our bed, but we decided there was not enough room (much to her disappointment).
She is good when left alone at home for a few hours – she will mainly just sleep. If there are kleenex and other goodies in the garbage, she might help herself to a snack. We learned this when we left the bathroom open one day. But if doors are shut or it is out of reach, there is no problem. The following are good to know for potential adopters:
She can snore loudly sometimes!!
When she is in a new environment, Jada can be sensitive to sounds and is more prone to barking. With a bit of time to settle, this reduces significantly. She does occasionally still bark a time or two at people/dogs going by our front window or if she hears other dogs when out in the yard. She does not bark continuously, and responds to verbal redirection.
April 7, 2020 – Jada continues to do well on her weight loss journey. She is now 32.5 lb and her harness is getting loose! She is loving the nicer weather. She loves lying in the sun in our backyard and going for walks. She wasn’t such a huge fan of getting her nails trimmed. She definitely has that pug part of her that would love to avoid the nail cutters! She continues to be a calm, cuddly and loving guest that is endlessly patient with our toddler. She does bark at times out the window or in the backyard, but is easily redirected and is not incessant with it.
March 17, 2020 – We were very lucky to have had the chance to foster Jada for the week. What a nice calm, and cuddly dog. She did have one accident the day she arrived but we were expecting that as it was a new house with new smells. Jada really enjoyed hanging around with the other pugs and following them around inside and outside. She loves her walks and walks very well on the leash. She adjusted well to our routine for example, eating times and potty breaks. The second she see her harness and leash her little tail is wagging with excitement.
March 3, 2020 – Jada continues to fit right in here. She is such an easygoing and friendly girl. We continue to work on her weight loss journey. She is looking forward to nicer weather for longer walks. She is such a cuddle bug and has been a great companion while I was feeling under the weather. Overall, she has been the easiest foster we’ve ever had and will be an amazing addition in her forever home. P.S. she is so good, it is hard to know what to write sometimes.
February 17, 2020 – Jada is such a loving girl that has fit in so well in her foster home. Last weekend she had a blast cuddling with everyone at the Winter Paw thaw. Cuddling is her favourite thing to do! We have found that she is not possessive with food or toys. She has been loving her raw food. We continue to have no issues with housetraining. Overall she is a joy to have around.
February 4, 2020 – Jada needs to lose some weight, so we are monitoring her food and making sure she gets more exercise. She has been put on raw food. Jada is a lucky girl and had a beautiful sweater made just for her. She looks stunning in her foam green sweater. She is currently showing off!
January 28, 2020 – Jada had her teeth cleaned today. She had 6 teeth missing and got 10 extracted. Jada is 36.5lbs but her ideal weight should be around 28lbs. We are feeding her 1/2 cup twice with NO treats. Her forever home will have to continue working on Jada’s weight loss to ensure she reach a healthy weight which will be great for her joints/articulation and her general health.
January 23, 2020 – Jada is quite crafty at finding ways to get out of her sweater, and she will occasionally bark on walks (hearing children or another dog in the distance). She likes frolicking in the snow! I would not want her to be off leash, as she would be an adventure/explorer.
January 21, 2020 – Jada has been doing well. We have been taking it easy with some of the cold weather – Jada loves her people/cuddle time. She also has a favorite Nylabone. She has some deeper folds on her face that require regular care, but otherwise is a low maintenance dog. She will have her teeth cleaned January 28.
January 10, 2020 – Jada is settling in well. She is practically perfect in every way! She loves to cuddle, play with toys, go for short walks, and has such a happy personality. Her only minor habit is occasionally barking at things out the window. She went to the vet today to get a check up. Jada was definitely a bit anxious in the waiting room, but was very good for the vet. She weighs 36.7lbs currently and the vet would like her to lose some weight. She will also likely need a couple teeth removed, but is otherwise healthy.
January 6, 2020 – Jada arrived 2 days ago and right away you could tell she has the sweetest personality! She took the busy day in stride even though it had to be stressful. After being picked up, she stopped at Completely Mutts for some a nice bath/grooming.
Since arriving, Jada has been doing her business outside and will give a bark to let you know she needs to go out. She pulls mildly on the leash outside, but is very good and keen to explore. She was also good in the car. She liked zipping around the yard, but would look for an escape route if the fencing is not secure. She has been good with the resident dogs and an absolute ANGEL with my toddler. She clearly loves to be with people and enjoys cuddling on the couch. She would prefer people who are home most of the time. Jada is going to the vet this Thursday for a complete check up.
January 4, 2020 – Jada was surrendered to UMWPR this afternoon. Jada is a pug/french bulldog and she is about 38lbs. She will be going to the vet this week for a complete check up. Stay tuned for more on Jada as we get to know her better.
