Description: 
*Jaze cannot be in a home with small dogs or other small animals.* Jaze is a very special girl who came to us from a very ugly situation. You see, Jaze was severely neglected for most of her life. She was chained out in a yard with no food and water or protection from the elements before being handed over to animal control. Despite the grim details of her previous life, Jaze has an amazing spirit, an attentive gaze, and uncanny kindness about her. She is about 25 lbs underweight, she has flat feet, and her ears are not in great shape – in fact one is half gone… how it got that way, we have no idea – the other looks like it was the product of a hematoma at some point in her life. Both are healed now and don’t seem to bother her, at all – they just look a little different. We like to say that it adds character! Jaze is also hw positive, but is expected to make a full recovery from her treatment as it appears to be a milder case. Not to worry, the rescue is taking care of that straight away. Jaze is in credibly smart and quick to learn. She knows sit and down and will give you her paw. She walks well on a leash and is incredibly easy to teach and handle. Jaze enjoys tennis balls and rawhides and she LOVES to EAT!!! Can you blame her? She has learned to sit like a lady for her food dish to go down, but is still very eager. Her only real bad habit is that she is a garbage diver – she has probably had to forage for food her whole life, so it is only natural. It does not appear that Jaze had any house experience when she came to us – she was a bit of a counter surfer, a toilet drinker, and she was afraid to walk on hardwood floors! Now, she does not mind the hardwoods and has learned that counter surfing is not appropriate. We keep the toilet lids down and the garbage put away. Jaze is crate trained and excellent in her crate – you will not hear a peep out of her when you put her in. She is motivated by food – so a couple treats inside will help her go in her crate. Yo u will notice right away that she is very attentive and she has so much sweet expression in her face… her gaze is very endearing. It makes you want to hug her. Jaze will need to continue to put on weight – her coat is getting much better and it is now very soft, but her skeletal appearance can be shocking. It is a gentle reminder of all she has been through. All in all, Jaze needs a special home where she will never have to worry again… a place where she is safe and will receive all the food her belly can hold and all the love a person has to give! Oh, one more thing: because of her prey drive, Jaze cannot be in a home with cats, small dogs under 20lbs, or other small animals however, she is excellent with kids and bigger dogs. Anyone have a heart and a home for Jaze?
