JOVIE – Whippet Mix / 1.5 years / 15kg / F-Spayed
You may have guessed this already, but the name Jovie means “joyful”. Even if you didn’t google it (like we did), that face is a clear giveaway on her mood. Foster dad has described her as fun, bouncy and sweet…but we think joyful applies too (and is somewhat seasonal).
In her foster home she is thriving: she loves routine and consistency. One of the favourite parts of her routine is when she first gets out of her crate each morning, she bounds upstairs to cover foster mom in kisses. Then of course, bio break, breakfast, walks, toy time, a nap, a bit of a wrestle with canine foster bros – and repeat! Foster dad says she is maybe the easiest – and fastest – foster that they have ever had!
For her future family, she would need a dog pal that also mentor her. As a tween, she sometimes wants to get away with stuff, but is happy to be reminded of her manners. For kids, we suggest older kids only, and her family will need to be ok with her version of hugs. She is active and she loves to run and hike, so her family need to be keen too. We suspect she has a future in agility classes too.
