Jazz’s original owner was diagnosed with a terminal illness.  Several times the owner was taken to the hospital by ambulance and Jazz was taken to the shelter for holding.  Upon her owner’s return from the hospital, Jazz would then be returned home.  Unfortunately, when home, her owner was too ill to properly care for her.

In foster care, Jazz slowly but surely blossomed.  She went from “don't try and hold me” to loving to be held.  She will jump into your lap to give kisses and rest her head against your sternum, in total bliss to have someone to love.

She loves going for walks and was bomb proof at a loud, chaotic 4th of July parade. She was quiet and walked through crowds comfortably. She will let groups of small children run up to her and pet her. She's shy about it but a perfect little lady.

Jazz loves to burrow under the covers, even for quick naps. Although she loves walks she is very low energy and does not require daily walks. She's great with both men and women.  And she's doing great with the two male doxies in her foster home.
