7 year old GSD needs a home (Quebec)

I wasn't going to open a thread for Jaid because she was suppose to get adopted at the end of march. Unfortunately for her , it didn't work out. :sad:

The rescue did have people interested in her but they want to find the PERFECT family for Jaid , you see , she has been moved around enough , through no fault of her own. She needs a family that will keep her and love her for THE REST OF HER LIFE.

She is good with dogs , with cats and with people. Don't let her age fool you , she's in amazing shape and needs exercise and stimulation as she is a working breed , and very intelligent I might add. Knows how to stay , sit , give paw , and speak on command !!! (found that out this week and I must say , I'm having fun with this command :laughing:)

She needs a good quality food (she's on Orijen right now) and enzymes as she has pancreatic insufiency. The enzymes costs about $85 a month , but since I was running low and the rescue had to order it from the vet , she has been on half dosage for the past week and is doing quite well. That doesn't mean this will always be the case.

For any question please pm me so I can refer you to the rescue for adoption application.

I have personally met her on 2 occassions, and let me tell you she is such a gem.
You would never believe she was 7, my guess maybe 3.
Good luck Jaid you deserve a great furever home.

Jaid is adopted !!!!!! She will still be with me for one more week as her new dad has a business trip this week. Jaid will have a GSD brother (adopted from the same rescue) to share her new dad with. Didn't take too long for him to fall in love with Jaid , and I've been told he spoils his other (goofy) GSD so I couldn't wished for a better home fo Jaid !

woohooo !!!!!!!!!!! thanks for all the good vibes guys ! :thumbs up

:D I packed the beloved pink Cuz this morning with her food in case she wasn't coming back to my place , of course she will be taking that Cuz with her. Nelly has another one and many kongs anyway.

I showed the rescue ladies and the future daddy how Jaid sits , gives paw and speaks on command. It always cracks me up :D

Chloe will feel relieve to be able to sleep at my feet without having a Cuz thrown at her face :laughing:

You always do such great work finding the right homes for your fosters!!

Not anymore 14+ , the rescues for which I foster now are the ones who handle the adoptions. They're the ones who get the applications and do the screening. I only foster now , so I only deal with dogs and not people :D

Good luck in your forever home Jaid , be a good girl !!!!

Wow , that's a first .... I drove Jaid to our meeting place this morning , the rescue's obedience classes building ....

People were asking me yesterday if I was going to be sad. I said no , first of all , I'm always happy when fosters get adopted , it's always by very good families. And , with everything going on at my house , and Jaid being .... needy (exercise wise) big time , I was glad to see her go to her forever home. As I was going to my car to get the food and toys , the new dad got in with his dog Jerry , so the dogs could meet.

I got back in , Jaid was on leash with the rescue lady , was pulling and then starting screaming OMG ! Totally ignoring Jerry . Everyone was looking at her , rescue lady says , it's because she just saw you (me) walk in .... I started to cry !!!! :laughing: :o never would I have imagine that Jaid got attach to me. She was always following me but never to get affection , she was kind of independant , tough girl ! So they put her in another rom , in an exercise pen , everytime I would say something , she would scream her head off .... so we all thought it was better for me to leave. And so I did , in a hurry , without saying goodbye Jaid , it was too chaotic .... I was so shaking up ... forgot my leash :o

Will get updates and pictures from her new daddy :thumbs up

ouf , what a day !!!

OMG, Frenchy, what an emotionally wrecking day! I am sure Jaid will be fine, and with time she will get attached to her new daddy, but no wonder she got attached to you! You took care of her!!

I hope you will have a nice peaceful evening, with your doggies!

:grouphug:

That must have been awfully difficult for both of you. :sad:

But her independent attitude will serve her in good stead and she'll soon be happily getting to know Jerry and her new Daddy and fitting right in! :goodvibes:

I hope he updates and sends pics frequently! :fingerscr Will you post them here, I hope? :D

What an amazing thread Frenchy. :lovestruck:

Jaid is so beautiful and it sounds like she will be equally spoiled as Jerry. :)

It must have been very difficult for you and can only commend you for your strength and love that you gave to not only Jade, but the entire rescue cause.

Make sure when your home to give all the little guys big smooches right between the eyes :thumbs up

Thanks for the kind words guys ! I was ok the rest of the day . I'm used to foster goldens and they're the type of dogs who are always happy , when they get here but also when they leave for their forever home. Jaid caught me off guard !!!!


I spent the evening cuddling the fuzzbutts and sleeping on the couch :D when I have time Winston , I will take pics and post updates on them , I will tell you right now though , Puce is now bullying Nelly :laughing: a bit of a power trip I think :laughing: and there's no change on CHloe's condition. :sad:

Glad to hear that Puce is fitting right in, though! :D (poor Nelly! :laughing:)
