Pet Of The Week: Beautiful Jewels Is A Gem Of A Lady
If you're looking for a sweet and loving companion, our SPCA of Hancock County 'Pet Of The Week', Jewels might just be an awesome fit for you.
According to the SPCA's Executive Director, Nicole Rediker Jewels is ready for some company she can count on.
"Jewels is a 8 year old lab mix who is very sweet and loving! Sitting at a little over 50 pounds, this golden yellow girl is the perfect size companion. Jewels, her brother, and a sister came to the SPCA in April of this year, and Jewels is the only one still at the shelter. She loves peanut butter lick mats and pets from her favorite volunteers."
While Jewels enjoys the company of her human friends, there are some things that make this lady a little leery.
"She does not prefer cats, as they seem to frighten her so she barks at them. Jewels also thinks that car rides are scary- she enjoys just hanging out on a cozy bed instead. She has been checked thoroughly by a vet and has no known major health concerns."
Rediker says there are also some age-related issues a new owner will want to be aware of before Jewels joins a forever family.
"Because of her age, she is a little lame in her hind legs; she takes a hip and joint supplement daily. Jewels may have some hearing, vision, and cognitive impairment as she paces in her kennel and will bark when left alone."
Rediker says she's a delightful older dog just looking for a family to love.
"She is a sweet old lady who would love to just curl up and love a family to call her own. Jewels needs a quiet home to live out the rest of her days, could that be you?"
