Jackie has been with us a long while and is way overdue for a forever home of her own.  This is gorgeous, highly intelligent and sensitive dog has been spending some quality time with Darian to work on the nervousness she feels when meeting new people. I’m sure anyone with some social anxiety can relate (new people can be scary!). It’s not a big deal, and it shouldn’t be a dealbreaker. It just requires the right person to help her feel safe and comfortable when meeting people. Darian came up with a greeting protocol for her which has been very helpful. So, when meeting Jackie for the first time, you offer her a treat, ask her to sit and down, and then take her for a quick walk to the corner and back. That’s pretty much all it takes to get this girl to know that you’re A-OK. Once Jackie gets to know you she’s truly the sweetest most loving dog. And - she is excellent with other dogs both large and small. She has been a foster here with me and @saschasudikova and done well in both homes. She is a three year old, heeler mix who is housetrained and crate trained. She loves going for hikes and lounging by your feet. Her perfect home would have someone that’s familiar with the breed and is open to working with a shy dog. She would also have another balanced dog to romp and play with. She is easy-going and has medium energy is so a nice long walk in the morning or a gentle hike would be great and if he walks in the neighborhood during the day. A quieter home with no kids under 13 would probably be best. She was rescued from death row at the 11th hour (literally). We really ❤️ this girl and can’t wait to see her in the perfect home. She truly deserves it.  show less
