    Jenny 8's Story . . .
    Original:  “Jenny is not as frightened of new things any more.  It seems the more she is exposed to, the better she does.”

    Little Jenny is an extremely sweet girl who was found as a stray in West Virginia.  When MAESSR found out about her, they jumped in and quickly got her into a foster home.  Poor Jenny was very underweight, had recently had puppies, and was scared of everything― especially of being in the noisy shelter.

    Jenny has settled into her foster home and seems to be enjoying all of the attention she gets.  Happily, she is not as frightened of new things any more.  It seems the more she is exposed to, the better she does.  Good girl, Jenny!
    Adjusting nicely to life inside with a loving family, this petite little girl does not counter-surf or chew anything inappropriate.  She loves to sleep on the sofa and grabs a cushy dog bed in her foster parents’ bedroom at night. When it is time for some exercise, Jenny walks well on a leash and likes to ride in the car when errands need to be done.
    Her foster mom is proud to announce that Jenny is almost completely housetrained.  She does fine at night, but has had a couple of wetting accidents during the day.  Jenny is crated when her foster family is away to help with the housetraining process.  She has made a lot of progress and her foster mom is confident that she will soon be completely trustworthy.

    If you are looking for a lot of love in a small package, Jenny is the girl for you.
