About Jewel

From Jewel's foster…

”Jewel is such a sweet and adorable little girl. She is so affectionate and wants to be with her people. She loves a lap to sit on and loves snuggling any chance she gets. She walks so well on leash and enjoys her walks. She LOVES squeaky toys and will play with them on her own and loves to fetch them. She is a perfect dog and I find it so hard to believe she ended up in a shelter. She is house trained and is non-destructive if left alone. She really is a jewel.”

Needs slow introductions to dogs, but is good after a while. Barks and chases cats. Walks really well on leash and tends to jump on you for attention. 

Jewel would do well as the only dog or with another small dog in the home with no cats. I would love to see her in a home with people who don't mind her wanting to be with them all the time, and don't mind a little dog on their lap most of the time. I think she'd be great with a family who would give her lots of attention and who would take time to play with her.

Adoption Fee | $500

Adoption fees help cover the costs associated with rescue, such as vetting, boarding, and transportation.

Prior to adoption, dogs are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and 4Dx tested, and they receive any necessary treatment. After adoption, they are eligible for one month of free pet insurance.
For more information about adoption fees, please review our Adoption FAQs & Fees page.

Why We Love Fostering

  • I love fostering because I get to change the lives of the dogs I welcome into my home. I get to treat them like my own while knowing they get a chance at a great life. It feels great to be able to provide them with a stepping stone towards their new life with a new family and new friends. Even when they go, I never feel sadness. I only feel happiness because I know they will be loved as much as i loved them. (For Kappy: Though your time was short with me, you inspired me to help other dogs. 🥹)

Why We Love Fostering

  • We love fostering because the dogs bring so much love and joy into our home. Seeing them adjust to life in a home, come out of their shells and become their happy, playful selves is so rewarding. It's also a great feeling so see them got adopted by a home that will love them forever. The foster dogs also have a lot to teach us about resilience, adaptability, trust and unconditional love. They inspire us to be better versions of ourselves. If they can survive their histories while still being loving and happy, so can we.
