“Listen up, Fives; a Ten is speaking” – Jenna Maroney, 30 Rock
Introducing Jenna! At 10 months old and around 25 pounds, Jenna is the tallest of her sisters, Pearl and Aurora. We expect them to get to be around 40 pounds when they are fully grown!
Jenna is still a puppy, and she is working hard to learn all about the world. She is fully crate trained, and she is working on her housebreaking. This little pup is able to sleep soundly all night long in her crate without having to be let outside to go to the bathroom, and when she is let outside, she’s eager to run back into the safety of her crate. Right now, the crate is where Jenna feels most comfortable because the rest of the world is really scary, but with time and patience, we hope Jenna will be able to break out of her shell and see how great the world can be.
Even though the world may be scary, Jenna’s pretty confident around other dogs! She’s not quite ready to join in on any play sessions, but other dogs don’t seem to add to her anxiety. With a bit more confidence, Jenna will likely become a dog that likes a good trip to the dog park to meet more four-legged furry friends.
Jenna is very slow to warm up to humans, but she is gaining confidence every day. When she first arrived at her foster home, she would flinch when someone would slowly reach for her to give her affection, but she is doing that less and less and is even starting to give some kisses. Now that Foster Mom is a safer place to be, Jenna will often situate herself in Foster Mom’s lap — especially if there’s a scary noise.
Unlike a lot of young dogs, Jenna has been a star student on the leash! She is able to walk along with her handler and not pull at the end. Once Jenna really settles in, she may get a bit more playful and burn off energy through play sessions with her siblings, but walking could be a good form of exercise for her too!
Even though Jenna’s personality sounds more like she should be labeled a weenie dog rather than a shepherd-hound mix, Jenna’s got so much potential to blossom into a happy, healthy, and confident gal ready to tackle life with a new family.
