Howdy! My name is Jolene, and I'm a smart, loving dog who needs a active family with older children and other dogs about my size or larger who enjoy a good game of play (frisbee, agility, dock diving, you name it, I'll be the best!). I’m a 1½ year old Jack Russell/ American Dingo/ Ridgeback mix? Only a DNA test will tell for sure. My foster mom says I’m 30 pounds of pure energy, affection and smarts. I spent the first year of my life surviving on the streets instead of just being a playful puppy, so I was never taught good manners. But, thanks to my foster mom and dad, I’m on the fast track to being an amazing dog. My foster parents say I need a family that has lots of experience training medium to large size dogs, probably because I need that constant discipline and reassurance. They figured out I’m a quick study, so foster mom has been teaching me all kinds of tricks and I just LOVE it. I’m housebroken, which I mastered in just three weeks…(yay me!). I’m great on a leash and I love going on long walks and runs. I love other dogs my size or bigger, but I tend to get a little bossy sometimes. Foster dad says It’s because I’m kinda dominant, whatever that means. I am truly a working dog so I need lots of exercise and regular training, but during my down time I’m truly a big cuddle bug, just ask mom. I’m very shy around strangers at first, so I need to learn that I can trust you (which could take about a week) before my true fun loving personality shines through.
