Meet Jacana: The Gentle Soul with a Heart Full of Love and a Touch of Shyness
Hello there, I'm Jacana, a sweet and gentle 1.5-year-old Chihuahua mix with a heart as soft as my fur. Though I may be a bit shy at first, once you get to know me, you'll find that I'm bursting with love and affection just waiting to be shared.
At a dainty 17 pounds, I may not be the biggest pup on the block, but what I lack in size, I more than make up for in sweetness and charm. I have a knack for melting hearts with my soulful eyes and gentle demeanor, and I'm always eager to show my love in any way I can.
One of my favorite pastimes is giving almost-kisses to my favorite humans. Whether it's a gentle nuzzle against your hand or a shy sniff of your cheek, I'm always looking for ways to show you just how much I care.
While I may still be a little unsure about this whole leash thing, I'm incredibly smart and eager to learn. With a little patience and encouragement, I know I'll be confidently strutting my stuff in no time.
Despite my initial shyness, I have a strong bond with my humans and will come running when called, especially if it means getting some extra cuddles and attention. However, when surrounded by others, I tend to hang back a bit, preferring to observe from the sidelines until I feel comfortable enough to join in on the fun.
So, if you're looking for a gentle soul with a heart full of love, look no further than Jacana. With her sweet nature and unwavering loyalty, she's sure to steal your heart from the moment you meet her. Apply today and see for yourself why Jacana is the perfect addition to your family.
All adult dogs, cats, and kittens are altered prior to adoption. Puppies too young to be altered at the time of adoption must be brought to our partner vet in Ashland, VA for spay or neuter paid for by Operation Paws for Homes by 6 months of age. Adopters may choose to have the procedure done at their own vet before 6 months of age and be reimbursed the amount that the rescue would pay our partner vet in Ashland.
This dog's bio is based off the experiences of the foster and/or volunteers of OPH as well as any information that we received from the shelter or previous owner. This is very important because it means that while they may act one way in the foster’s home, you may experience something different in your home.
