Jersey has been waiting so long for a forever home.
Jersey is a happy, energetic girl who strives to excel at her job. As a herding dog, she feels her job is to take direction from her person and control her charges. This works very well when there is one trusted person and large, mellow dogs who tolerate her controlling behavior. She LOVES lots of affection, but only where she feels safe - no belly rubs, no big hugs. She is fearful of people she doesn't know well. Jersey needs a special person who respects her limitations.
Jersey has mild arthritis that will require inexpensive medication for life. This doesn't stop her from enjoying a good hike, though she does pull a bit on the leash.
Jersey will do best in a very quiet home with 1-2 people and ideally no other animals, although she could do well with another senior dog that doesn't try to interact much.
Jersey came to POMDR from a good Samaritan who found her as a stray in Hollister. Her original guardian was not found.

FOSTER NEEDED! Freckles is easy to live with and particularly loves being outside. She loves her walks and will pull some on leash when she gets going, before settling down. She's polite and unafraid with dogs she meets. She is always happy to meet new people, and is great with kids.
She likes to play chase and keep-away with the other terriers at her foster home, and will also throw toys around for self entertainment. She likes lots of toys, but has a teddy bear she's particularly fond of. She is house trained and crate trained, and gets along well with cats.
Freckles gets excited at mealtime and will do a little dance for treats and gives lots of kisses. She will bark when she hears interesting sounds, so she would do best in a home where some barking wouldn't disturb the neighbors.
Her former foster mom said: "She has such a sweet nature, and I enjoy her playful side. She will enjoy sitting with you for a while, gives lots of kisses, then curls up in her bed for a nap. She is truly delightful." Freckles came to POMDR when her guardian was being threatened with eviction from her apartment because she had a dog. She was adopted for over four years but her adopter passed away and Freckles is needing our help again.
Freckles is coming back after losing her guardian and we hope to find her another great home. In the meantime, will you please consider giving this sweet dog a foster home? Or, if you're interested in adopting, fill out an adoption questionnaire. #fosterdogsrule#fostertoadopter#fosterneedednow#fosterdogs#rescueismyfavoritebreed#smalldogsofinstagram#smallmixbreed#adoptadogsavealife#peaceofminddogrescue#POMDR#seniordogs#seniordogsrule❤️❤️❤️❤️ #paws🐾 #furkids🐾 #adoptdontshopcalifornia#adoptabledogscalifornia#adoptdontshop🐾
