She hasn’t had much exposure to young children; the kids next door to her original home were mean and liked to tease the dogs, so the belief is that she’d do best in a home where the humans are all over the age of 14. However, when she’s met children while out on walks she’s been friendly and enjoyed being petted.
Jackie enjoys going for walks, and until her former owner became ill walks were a regular part of her routine. She also loves car rides and will happily keep you company on both long and short outings. Jackie is an affectionate girl who warms up fast to new friends and loves to be petted and to snuggle on the couch.
Although Jackie likes people, she can be protective. She’ll bark to let you know something unusual is happening, and if a visitor comes into the house uninvited she’ll let them know in no uncertain terms that she’s on guard.
Jackie’s house manners are excellent. She is reliably house-trained and will use a dog door. She is crate trained. She can safely be left loose in the house, although if she’s left alone for long periods and doesn’t get enough exercise she may chew on things she shouldn’t, out of frustration or boredom.
