  Meet JitterBug!

Hi, I am JitterBug! Sometimes my Foster Mommy calls me JB. I was appropriately named as I prance when I walk and dance too. Lightening could have been my other name as I speed through the back yard to run laps. I do love to run and chase, but please donít wrestle with me as I sometimes get scared that I might get hurt. I also love to be held and snuggled close - the closer the better.

I will sleep in my crate, but really I prefer your warm bed. When in bed, I sleep like a human with my head close to yours and my body stretched out. Donít worry, I sleep soundly and wonít lick you in the middle of the night. But, in the morning, I do want to give you some kisses!

I like to play with stuffed toys and speed around the house with them in my mouth. And if someone chases me, even better! Then, I get tired, so please sit down so I can snuggle in your lap while you pet me!

They call me an Affenpinscher or Affenpinscher mix Ė whatever that means. But, I had all my shots, micro-chip, on heartworm preventative, and spayed so I am ready to go. I will need a home without small children and someone home most of the time as I love to be near my human companion. I love to play with other dogs too, just not overly hyper ones as they can scare me easily. I am working on my crate training, manners, and potty training as I am still young Ė about 6 months old and weigh approximately 10 pounds. Thanks for reading about me. Will you be my new Mommy soon?

JB is being fostered in Houston, Texas.

If you are interested in adoption please fill out our Adoption Application. If you would like more information, please contact Connie Lawrence at conniel@andell.com.

Keep in mind that we prefer to place dogs within driving distance of where they are being fostered. If someone from outside the local area is approved for adoption, they must be willing to fly in to get the dog and that can only happen if the dog is stable enough to travel in the cabin with the passenger.
