  • Sweet & affectionate

  • Playful

  • Quiet

  • Loves attention

  • Loves stuffed toys

  • Loves chasing balls

  • Endearing

  • Great companion

  • Gets along with other dogs.  She currently lives in a household with dogs ranging in size from 7 to 16 lbs.  We don't know how she is with large dogs.

  • Loves to play with other dogs.

  • Gives kisses

  • Treat motivated

  • Not a picky eater - will gobble up plain kibble

  • Walks well on a leash (harness is recommended for all our dogs)

  • Has not been with cats under our care so we don't know how she is with them

  • Housetrained using the crate training method.  We don't know she knows how to ask to go out.  That's because there are many unhousetrained dogs from shelters in her foster home  so she is taken out frequently along with all the others.  Her foster mom  doesn't wait for each one to ask to go out.  Heidy hasn't pottied in her foster mom's house, but her foster mom is very experienced in how to avoid accidents.

  • Jackipoo (Miniature Poodle plus Jack Russell Terrier)

  • May be perfect for someone wanting a low to no-shedding dog.  Since we don't know which genes she got from which parents we can't say for sure she's hypoallergenic.

  • 1  years old

  • 14 lbs

  • Microchipped

  • Shots up to date

  • Healthy

  • All medical paperwork provided

  • Respectful children 10 and up

  • San Diego County residents only

  • Adoption fee $295

We rescued Heidy from a local shelter.  A Good Samaritan brought her there saying they found her.  Heidy's hair/fur was already short at that time and the shelter designated her a Miniature Poodle mix.  Heidy was also  lactating at the time.  No one knows what happened to her puppies but we're guessing they were sold by her previous owner.  Heidy was very scared at the shelter and no staff member could get her out of her kennel to take her out for walks.  Once with us in a foster home, she turned around completely and walks very nicely on a leash.
