Blue Jade is a talisman of peace and serenity. It calms and restores, like a veil of slow moving clouds covering the moon. It is spiritual. It ranges in color from pale to mid-blue and is widely used to temper emotional upheaval and to restore equilibrium.
Jada was adopted from MPR as a puppy. Her owners were no longer able to care for her and she was returned. Jada was a family companion, raised in a home with children.
Adoption Fee: $150
Breed: Pit Bull
Age: 2 to 4 yrs
Color: Blue & White
Jada is physically healthy but suffered from general anxiety when lost her home. She is currently administered an anti-depressant to help her cope and has been enrolled in training classes. She does very well since, and her foster parents have seen great improvements. In fact, she pretty much behaves like a normal, well adjusted companion now. Next step in Jada's training will be her CGC certification (Canine Good Citizen).
White with blue patches. Tall, slender and athletic body. Cute face with an adorable overbite.
After a short adaptation period, this friendly gal has adjusted to her life in foster care like a trouper. She was initially heartbroken by the loss of her previous family but she quickly realized that her foster home had some great incentives too, such as a doggy friends to play with and most importantly, all the exercise she needs. She loves it!
Jada is fostered in a home with two adult humans, two mature resident Pit Bulls and a very old foster Pit Bull. There are no children in her foster home. The house has a large yard with a 5' chain link fence.
Jada is kept in a crate when home alone. While not fond of her crate at first, having been kept in one too much growing up, she's doing much better now. Crating her next to another dog helps. Jada also thrives in a set routine. Foster parents report that crating her is not longer an issue at all. She is calm and quiet in there while her foster family is gone normal work hours.
While she’s kenneled when home alone, she sleeps loose in the living room at night and doesn't cause any problem.
Jada loves chewing on nylabones and antlers. she knows the difference between a dog toy and people things. She is well behaved and has great house manners.
Jada has completed 2 training classes (she’s a smarty pants) and is enrolled in a 3rd one.
Funny lady is expressive vocally and likes to tell you what’s going on. She’ll bark when she needs to go outside and do her business. It's quite cute.
Energetic but not hyper. She is a lively and happy dog, with spunk and passion for life.
Jada is super smart and eager to interact with people. Obedience training has thought her to respect and appreciate leadership.
Behavior with people:
Jada adores people and gets deeply attached to her loved-ones. She thrives on leadership and consistency. She feared abandonment at first but has learned to relax and enjoy rules and boundaries.
Jada is outgoing when meeting strangers. Sometimes a little too enthusiastic with her greetings but nothing atypical for an energetic Pit Bull. She loves people and is an expressive dog.
Her foster parents often take her on outgoings and she gets to meet a ton of people. She loves being a social butterfly and the center of attention. While Jada does well in a car, she prefers car rides to be kept short and under 30 minutes preferably.
Behavior with children:
Jada looooooooves kids!! A home with older kids is preferred as she can jump up when excited and sometimes forgets her size a little. She is learning though. We can picture her thriving in a home with teenagers.
Behavior with other dogs:
Jada is awesome with the senior males in her foster. Her best friend is a 12 year old MPR alum . She thrives in his presence. She especially loves going on long walks with him or cuddling on the couch. Jada doesn’t always understand his personal space though and needs a tolerant male companion. She does well when supervised and kenneled when home alone. She’s not reactive towards other dogs in her training classes.
She also gets along with the resident female Pit Bull but they dont spend as much time together. The resident female is possessive of her parents and not always eager to share. Jada respects her. Ultimately, sharing a home with another dog has helped Jada deal with anxiety but a male companion is preferred.
Behavior with other animals:
No cats for Miss Jada!
Jada is perfect on leash. She runs/walks in a heel position well. Jada is currently in training with her foster mom and is very eager to please! She is treat-motivated and is learning the essentials of being a well-mannered girl!
Jada is always well behead when going on walks and outings. She is house trained, kennel trained and has great house manners. Not very food motivated but very much a people pleaser.
Jada has completed Obedience 1.0, as well as Confidence and Play at the D.O.G. Obedience Group in Blue springs. She loves mental and physical stimulation. Her foster mom had so much fun with her in doggy-school that she enrolled her in a second class. She is also working towards her CGC.
Note that training class are transferable to a new owner at no cost if they are interested in continuing training with their new dog.
She grows on you. She loves to cuddle and isn’t shy about it. Everyone is her best friend. She's super smart and loves to have a good time!! And dont underestimate her chill side! Jada loves lounging on the couch!
