Special Criteria What does this mean?
Sanctuary visit required

Jodi is shy and fearful at first, but once she gets to know you she turns into your shadow and wants to be as close to you as possible. Besides following her person around, Jodi really enjoys a good neck scratch. While she's a little shy with people, she adores other dogs. Born in 2015, she tends to 'mother' the young, rowdy dogs she lives with.

Jodi has anxiety and can be a little nervous around loud noises or thunderstorms, especially if she doesn't have other dogs to keep her company. She will need some time to settle into a new place; initially, she may try to escape a yard if left alone.

Here at the Sanctuary, Jodi is working on socialization and is going on lots of walks where meeting new people is a positive experience. She's a great hiker and enjoys a good splash in the creek. This beautiful girl wants a person of her own so badly. Once she becomes attached to you, her bond is strong. Won't you take a chance on her?
