Meet Jett

"Jett probably has never had a person be nice to her. She is just very unsure about people. Some days she is more likely to come to you than others. She will let you pet her on the face but for short periods. She enjoys dogs, and likes to play with them. Jett likes to just do her own thing. She has her safe place in our home, where she likes to lay, but is now starting to come out more. She loves feeding time! A slow feeder is recommended, as she is a super fast eater. She isn’t a fan of putting a leash on her, or walking on a leash. It makes her very nervous and scared. Jett needs a patient family that realizes she will need time to unwind and get to know you!

Jett would do well in a home with or without another dog. I think she would enjoy having another dog around though! A home on the calmer side would be best. She has never been around kids since we have had her, so I’m not sure how she would be around them."

From Jett's foster mom^
????????????

There are a lot of cruel things in this world, but one of the worst is to not feel loved. To not feel like you belong anywhere. To not even have a name........

For as long as I can remember I have been on my own. I think the last time I truly felt love was when I was with my mom and siblings. That was so long ago though. I have since grown up and now walk these streets alone. I learned all about being a street dog. I had to. If I didn't learn how to survive on my own, I wouldn't still be here today. I learned how to go days without food and water. I learned how to become an expert scavenger. I learned to avoid humans since many aren't nice and don't want you hanging around their houses. I learned to avoid just about everyone because you never knew if the other animal or human would be friendly. At first, it hurt. I didn't want this life. II did not want to feel so secluded...so lost. As time goes on though, you start to realize that things won't change and you fall into a silent acceptance. You kind of just shut down. You are alive but not really living. And this was the way things were for most of my life. My only happiness was if I made it to the next day or scored a good piece of food. Other than that, I was in survival mode. There was no time for fun or relaxation.

I was in auto-pilot mode. When you live the same life day in and day out, you start to be a little too secure in that. I never saw that person coming. One minute I was checking something out, and the next thing I knew I had something wrapped around me and was being taken to someone's car. You could say that I was definitely in a panic As a rule I tried to avoid people, and now I had been caught by one and had no idea what would happen to me. I didn't have long to wonder though because soon we had pulled up to a building and stopped. I may have been scared in the car, but a feeling of dread settled into my stomach once we stopped. I knew that I didn't want to go into that building but I didn't get a say. They human encouraged me on and suddenly I was inside and all I heard were cries. There were so many animals who were there...all begging for someone to help them...to pay attention to them...to get them out there...to give them the chance that they all deserved. I felt it down to my soul. All these animals didn't choose to be here. They all had their choice taken away too, but not by the shelter. That I understood. It was their owners...in one way or another that let them end up there.

As I walked passed everyone's kennels, I felt the color drain from my face. There were so many dogs. If they were all sitting behind bars with no interest, what chance did a timid and skinny girl like me have? As it would turn out...it wasn't good. When I didn't get reclaimed I went on the adoption floor. No one ever adopted me...or even gave me much of a look. I cannot exactly blame them because I spent most of my time pressed against the corner of my kennel. I was terrified there. I knew that I should try and be outgoing. I knew that I should be at my kennel door tail wagging and giving out kisses. I knew I should have tried giving it my all to get adopted...but I couldn't. I was petrified. I went from being all alone to being locked behind bars. I may have at least had food and shelter now, but I also knew that I wouldn't be getting out of there. No one was going to choose me and as the days went by I shut down more and more. I ended up hurting my leg somehow one day, and that sealed my fate. I ended up on the "urgent" list which is something you never ever want to be on. I was given hours to be pulled by a rescue otherwise I would be euthanized.

I know that sounds harsh but you don't understand. The shelter was packed full with more animals coming in. It is so bad out there guys, and so I ended up on the no no list. Somehow...someway I had a guardian angel watching over me though. I was sitting in the corner of my kennel once more...I had given up when someone came for me. I figured this was it...so imagine my surprise when instead of going toward the back of the shelter I was taken up front. There was a nice guy there waiting for me. I wasn't sure what to think of him, but going with him was definitely better than staying. So, I left with him. He loaded me up in the car and told me that I was safe. That was now part of this rescue's fluffy butt program and that things would get better from here. I just stared at him a bit before lying my head back down. I didn't know what to think of him. It wasn't long after that we pulled up to what is now my foster home. Right away, I was thrown a curveball. First, they took me in the house. Second, I was greeted by some very nice and happy dogs. Third, the people in my foster fmaily were all so kind. And finally, a sense of peace settled over me. It was like I somehow knew that everything would be changing...but in a very good way.

I was given the name Jett, and we are estimating that I am about 2 years old. I weigh around 50lbs and will probaly top out around 62lbs. I am a Great Pyrenees mix, potentially mixed with Anatolian Shepherd? I am good with other dogs and will lighly play with them. For the most part, I am indifferent to other dogs. I will play with them a little at times, and at other times I really don't pay them much mind at all. I have not been around cats or kids, so I cannot say how I would do with them.

All this being part of a family stuff is new to me. I never had a place where I felt like I belonged. I never had people doting over me. Heck, I don't think I even had a name before coming into this rescue. So, I am having a lot of firsts. One of those firsts is being in the car. Right now, I have no idea what to think and will try to climb on the floorboards and hide my head under the seat. While I am scared in the car, I am quiet and try to make myself as small as possible. I may eventually come around and feel more secure in the car, but probably would not be a good fit for a family who is constantly going on road trips. As far as public places go, I have only been to the vet so far. I am nervous of new people and will try to keep my distance from them if possible. There is a bright side to everything though because at least this way you know I won't jump on people ;) .I am good with unfamiliar dogs though, I do feel a bit more confident around them. I have not been on any walks yet because the leash makes me nervous. I will try to hunker down or yelp when you pull on it. I am almost two years old and had never had anything on my neck before so I hope you will cut me some slack here. I didn't grow up with walks, road trips, and outings. I grew up on the streets, learning to stay out of sight and scavenging. So, you could definitely say I am playinmg catch up. I could use some more expereince of getting out and about and being exposed to different things once I have settled in and feel more secure. However, I do not think that I would ever truly enjoy going places with my family. I would consider myself to be more f a homebody. I am a sucker for a good and stable routine.

I am not interested in playing fetch. I will kind of just stare at the toy you threw wondering what the purpose of that was and then walk off. I do enjoy toys though, especially chew toys! I am not interested in playing in the water though. I am more of an introvert. I like to keep to myself for the most part. Be that chewing on my toys or finding a nice place to just chill and relax. Sometimes I will come up for attention or play with the other dogs, but then I am ready to go be on my own again. Overall, I am a pretty quiet and laid back dog.

Given my fear of the leash and nervousness in new enviroments, I don't believe that I would be a good canidate for apartment living. I am potty trained, but have never needed to be kenneled. I am not a big chewer but I am curious. Sometimes I might try and chew on a wooden leg or something, but a quick no has me running and staying away from it a bit. Lots of chew toys help keep me busy as well. I am not much of a barker and am on the quieter side. I am given free roam of the house, even when my foster family is away and do well.

If you are interested in offering me forever, you can apply to adopt me at
https://www.pyrpawsandfluffytailsrescue.com/adoption-app

Once this app comes in, it will be sent to my foster family. This is to help ensure that not only am I a good fit for you but that you are also a good fit for me! ?

I am currently residing in Purcell, OK. If you have fallen in love with me and are out of state, how about a road trip? I won't go on a long transport, so the only way I am relocating to another state...is if we are in that car together ?

My adoption fee is $250.
That will include my DHLPP, Rabies, and Bordetella. I will be micro-chipped, have a fecal done, be de-wormed, be spayed/neutered, and will be current on heartworm and flea/tick prevention
