Jaivah, or JJ as her foster family nicknamed her, is a tiny girl with a huge heart! She came to SAAP from a hoarding case, nearly bald with ear infections and a massive benign fatty tumor. She had lost most of her hair from malnutrition and skin infections, but has healed with minimal scarring. Jaivah is a sweet girl, who loves to cuddle and is generous with kisses and tail wags. She gets along well with the other dogs in her foster home. She is highly food motivated, but shows no signs of resource guarding, not even when she first came to rescue. HOWEVER (there's always a however), she will counter surf or raid the trash if the opportunity presents. Jaivah is fed in her crate because she finishes her food quickly then wants to "help" the other dogs finish their meals. She can be a little too enthusiastic when taking treats (🎵baby shark🎵), but calms herself if you say "gentle" or "easy" before releasing the treat. Jaivah is also a "professional" digger/mole hunter but is not otherwise destructive. It did take our girl a bit to find her bark, but when she did ... let's just say she has a voice made for singing in the shower only. It's loud, shrill, and off-key. Quirks aside, Jaivah is a one-in-a-million pup who will bring much love and joy into your home.
