The only information we were given by the rural county shelter from which we transferred Egeria and her 7 siblings was that they were a mix of Jack Russell and who knows what else. The pups were in pretty bad condition when they arrived at ACS on 7/10/18. After a few weeks of TLC, Egeria is now ready to move on to the next exciting stage of her life - being a furry family member! Egeria reminds us of a kangaroo when she's in her kennel. She'll get so excited when she sees someone that she'll hop up and down on her hind feet almost like she had springs on her paws! She just can't wait to be in your arms covering you with her sweet puppy-breath kisses! Egeria is doing great on paper-training but her adopter must still be prepared to deal with finishing the job of house-training. Her adopter will also need to teach her all the other important things a puppy needs to know as she grows. Growing up with her siblings has taught Egeria how to interact properly with other dogs and she's young enough to learn how to behave respectfully around cats. Egeria loves running through the Puppy Yard playing with her siblings! No doubt, she'd be just as playful with children. However, because she's still a baby herself, she might be a little too rambunctious for really young children or children who haven't been around puppies before. Like any puppy, Egeria is silly, energetic, full of mischief and is sure to try your patience but we bet she'll also give you a lot of reasons to laugh and smile, too! Raising a young puppy does present some challenges but, as long as you know what you're getting into and know what you're doing, you'll be rewarded with a friend that will never judge you but will always, instead, accept and love you just the way you are despite any faults you might have. Egeria deserves the same in return from her adopter. If you have a lot of time, patience, prior experience with raising a puppy, and a strong commitment to love and care for Egeria through the good times and the bad times for the rest of her natural life, just stop by the shelter and ask to meet her. She's had all her vaccinations, is spayed and microchipped and on monthly flea and heartworm preventatives. /// EGERIA IS SPONSORED THRU FEBRUARY 2019 BY OUR FRIENDS AT OLDFATHER LAW FIRM.
