With some sass and spirit this tiny pup likes to rule the roost, and certainly won’t hold back to let you know when she thinks it’s her turn to play. And for her, there’s never a bad time to romp with other dogs or show a chew toy who is boss. Meet America’s Sweetheart, a one-and-a-half-year-old Terrier/Jack Russell Mix ready take on the world with a lot of pep and little human help.
She’s a healthy, active girl with lots of sass, but was with born several conditions that require extra support to help her lead the super-pup life she loves. She has a neurological condition that causes instability and a lack of depth perception, and a liver condition that will require life-long supplements and a specialized diet. She has a visible "bobble head,” a condition that may go away as she ages or could be lifelong. This condition also means that she isn't a fan of being picked up and is working on potty training, but she still loves to cuddle.
America’s Sweetheart is a friendly girl who loves other dogs, maybe a little too much, so having a canine companion would be beneficial for her. Because of her neurological condition, she may be slow to respond to voice commands, so using hand gestures along with your voice works well for her. With an understanding family, she will flourish in your home.
Even though America’s Sweetheart will require a home ready to provide a bit more supervision than the average pup her age, a prescribed diet, and guidance when other dogs are done playing, she is 100% worth it, and will reward you will a lifetime of love and devotion. If your life is due for a dose of spunk, and you’re ready to help this little girl take on the world, then she’s ready to take over your heart.
