When found by Animal Control in Manhattan on October 23, Jazzy appeared to have recently given birth; unfortunately her puppies were nowhere to be found. A definite favorite by the staff at New York City Animal Care and Control, Jazzy is the girl they call upon when temperament testing other dogs.
Following is the information posted about Jazzy’s medical examination:
FEMALE, GRAY / WHITE, PIT BULL MIX, 3 yrs A1018427 Medical Behavior Evaluation BLUE
SCAN NEGATIVE BRIGHT ALERT RESPONSIVE HYDRATED PHYSICAL EXAM- LACTATING WITH FULL MAMMARY GLAND. NO PUPS. MILD DENTAL TARTAR. EYES, EARS- WNL AMB X 4 APPLIED ACTIVYL. ALLOWS HANDLING BUT NERVOUS & TENSE. NOSF
Obviously, it didn’t take Jazzy very long to adjust to shelter life. Her history suggests she had been used as a breeder dog and then discarded when her puppies were born, however this resilient young pooch holds no grudges. A volunteer reports the following:
Happy to be out for a walk, going potty as soon as we were on the street, we have an easy walk to the park where we stop to take some photos. Jazzy doesn’t mind being tethered; calmly and easily posed for pictures, showed me that she knows how to sit, and gently accepts some reward treats. Good with other dogs we met in the park, she also does well in the play groups. Tolerant, low key and quietly playful, she’ll gently and appropriately correct a rowdy dog and continue on.”
Jazzy could use some good nutrition, better care and a home of her home. Come meet her and see if you agree with everyone else at the shelter.
