Crate Trained!!!


“Listen up, Fives; a Ten is speaking” – Jenna Maroney, 30 Rock 

Introducing Jenna! At about a year old and 40 pounds, Jenna is the tallest of her sisters, Pearl and Aurora. This sweet girl has grown up so much in her time with us, and although she’s still slow to come out of her shell, she’s really learning that life is best spent with those you love! 

Jenna is learning so much about the world every day. She is fully crate trained and is just about housebroken. 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 takes care of business quickly. Jenna hasn’t had an accident in her foster home in a long time, and she appreciates being let out for a bathroom break every few hours if she’s out of her crate. Lately, Jenna has been signaling when she’d like to go outside by ringing the bell that hangs on the door at her foster home — what a smart girl! One of the best things about Jenna is how content she is to be in her crate. If a few kibbles of her food are sprinkled in, she’ll waltz right in for a snack and immediately start relaxing. With more time and patience from her owner, Jenna will continue to trust that the world outside of her crate can be a great place too! 

New places and people are scary, but Jenna is so confident around other dogs and is always ready to run and play! She loves to run around the backyard, play chase, and sprint up and down stairs to get a furry friend to play with her. Jenna will dramatically flop down on a dog bed or roll around on the couch in the hopes that someone will see she’s in a playful mood and come to investigate and join in on the fun. With a bit more confidence with her two-legged friends, 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 and improving when she meets strangers. Slow movements, a calm voice, and keeping some space help pique her curiosity to investigate. When she first arrived at her foster home, she would flinch and tuck her tail under her legs when someone would slowly reach for her to give her affection, but now, she is giving nose kisses and tail wags when she’s happy to see a familiar friendly face. Jenna loves some cuddle time on the couch for head scratches and snuggles once she trusts enough to be able to close her eyes and relax.

When Jenna sees her harness come out, she knows that it means it’s time for a walk! Going for a walk or short jog is one of Jenna’s favorite activities, and she loves to burn off some of that energy while getting to take a look at what’s going on outside of her house — from a safe distance, of course. 

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.
