ADOPTION UPDATE: JULES!
Hello Paws In The City, it’s Jules! ‘Memba me?? Don’t worry, I included a before-and-after for you
I’ve been with my new family for about a month now and I love it! I get to spend my days sleeping in one of my three beds and demanding attention with my not-so-subtle nose dives. I don’t beg for food, but I get lots of pizza crusts and dog treats and I suspect that’s why I’ve gained lots of much-needed weight. I was inhaling my food, so mommy bought a bowl that forces me to slow down and chew my food.
I’ve had so many accomplishments since I’ve been here! I ran a whole mile, I go out on the balcony and watch for squirrels, I’ve been to the dog park several times (it’s still scary but apparently it’s supposed to be fun?), and the best thing of all is I’ve bonded with my sister! She was rescued too and is very loyal to me. Even though I steal her crate and bed, she keeps tabs on me at all times and encourages me to snuggle and run around. She likes to pounce and try to get me to play, but it’s a little confusing so I mostly just stand still until I can sneak away. One day I shall play!
Mommy and Daddy went out of town and felt I needed “positive socialization” so I went to the Lone Star Dog Ranch for a week. It’s like nothing I have ever seen before! There was lots of nice dogs and lots of land and even a pond to swim in! I got to do whatever I wanted the whole time – no being held up in a kennel all day! I was very shy the first day and just stayed in my den, but by the end of the week I was running around and hanging out with all the other dogs including my sister who made sure everyone else was nice to me! I really came out of my shell there. I didn’t want to leave the Ranch, daddy had to promise me that I get to go back in three weeks for a long weekend!
PS: Those awesome pictures of me were taken when I was at the Ranch (they have a photographer on site!) and they gave permission to put them on Facebook and advertising to help spread the word if you wanted!
