Physical Description: Justina Jackson is a long and lean girl with big, beautiful puppy eyes and ears, and a white splotch on her chest. She has adorable little wrinkles on her nose and a cute crooked tail.
Personality: Justina Jackson is a tenacious and spunky puppy who loves playing with her foster brother and any other dog she comes across. She wears herself out and then loves snuggling up for nap time. Super-sweet and loving, Justina adores everyone—whether 2- or 4-legged—smiling her huge smile and wiggling her butt in excitement!
She is very intelligent and highly food motivated, and so easy to train and a quick learner. Eating is probably her favorite activity of all! Justina has done fantastically with potty training, and will let you know when she needs to go out by going to the door and sitting down. She is respectful and submissive to her senior foster brother and looks to him for cues on her behavior . . . although she does love stealing a toy whenever she can!
Justina is not a huge fan of being crated but has learned to accept it in small doses. So, she needs to be placed in a home where either there will be no crating, or where someone is home most of the time (thus limiting her time in a crate), or with someone who can take her to work with them. Justina prefers to sleep with her foster brother and does not tolerate being crated overnight. She would love a home with access to a fenced yard. We are also hoping for a furry buddy she can pal around with. Justina Jackson will make a great addition to anyone with the time and patience necessary for raising a puppy.
History: Justina Jackson was rescued with a litter of puppies that included Joel Berry, who were being held in a crate.
