My name is Jonquil (#3340). I am a three-year old female Golden with possibly a little Chow Chow in my bloodline. I look like a miniature Golden.
I’m not one to get too excited about other animals that I see. My foster family has cats and they just walk by and I don’t care. My foster mom doesn’t let me run loose with the cats at night though because there’s always a chance I could get too happy with them.
I really like my canine foster siblings. We run and play together. Sometimes I get happy and jump on them – they don’t exactly like it but we are still friends afterwards. I am still young so I like to play with the ball and other toys. I will zoom around sometimes and then go potty. I tell my mom that I have to go outside when I’m in the house. I don’t know exactly where to go once I get there so sometimes it’s the cement patio. I need a family that will continue to be patient with me while I learn the rules.
Here’s a note from my foster mom: Jonquil is a kindhearted dog who loves to be hugged. She looks you in the eye and lets you know how happy she is. Jonquil is small but has the weight behind her to pull on her leash at times. She calms easily. At first she came to me all of the time when called. As time has passed and she is more comfortable, she sometimes looks at me and just keeps playing. A little training is needed in this area. She gets along well with other dogs. We don’t go to dog parks though, so I’m not sure how she would react around dogs that might be aggressive.
Jonquil has a great appetite and talks while she waits for her meals. She sleeps through the night and has had no accidents. Jonquil is crate-trained and will sleep through the night in a crate if necessary. She does fine in a large kennel as well. She loves chew toys like Benebones and heavy duty treat dispensers. Because she is only three, she has a lot of energy at times. Her size makes her very manageable though. While she does want to jump on people, her size keeps her from hitting too hard.
I think Jonquil would do great with other pets or with people who would spend a lot of time with her if she is the only pet. She is healthy and will let you brush her teeth and trim her nails. Someone is going to be very lucky to have her in their home.
