Jade: Valentine of Bay City Texas Shelter for adoption

Yesterday, the director of Bay City Shelter reached out for help with Jade. Abandoned at the shelter which has little funding and less support, Jade's chances are slim. However, she landed at a shelter that really cares.

Although Jade is supposed to be labrador and perhaps pittie, do we see a little bit of Chesapeake Bay Retriever in there? Sure looks that way by the way Jade loves the ball. Is anyone out there looking for a sweetheart youngster who loves to play? Jade is only 18 months old and still a puppy dog!!!

Jade would make an excellent pet for a family to grow up with. Here is what Bay City Shelter had to say:

"Jade has an owner who knows she is here but has not picked her up. 

The pics aren't the very best (possibly operator error?), but I am including some of her in the process of catching a ball.  Sometimes she has a little trouble with the 'drop it' command, but she is very good at sitting on command until the ball is thrown.  Leaps high in the air to try to catch it before it hits the ground.

She has also discovered that she can lay down behind the only stepping stone in the dog yard . . . the stone is slightly canted . . . set her ball on the stone, push it a bit with her nose and it will go rolling across the yard so that she can retrieve it and bring it back to the stone, repeat the process.

Yesterday she was in the office, saw a little pink stuffed pig and claimed it.  She wasn't supposed to play with that particular stuffed toy because it was supposed to follow another dog into its adoptive home.  So we just shoved the toy into the very bottom of the toy box, gave her another toy.  She wasn't having any of that.  Poked her head down into the toybox and rooted around until she came up with the pink pig.  (The pink pig did follow its real owner to his adoptive home, but it was missing its tail and one arm.)

Jade is a hoot, a whole lot of fun to be with.  She is probably about 18 months old.  We'd really like to see her get out of here.
