2816 ~ Jemma

ID #: 2816 Age: 6 yrs Gender: female Status: pending

Hi everyone…my name is Jemma and I’m a six-year-old girl.  My fantastic foster family has been so good to me and they have been helping me in so many ways. Firstly, I need to lose a pound or two and they have me on an exercise and diet program, which is working and I’ve lost a few pounds already.  I also had some ear infections and they’ve been giving me medication which is also working. They are sooooo nice.  I heard them on the phone the other day describing me as friendly, easy-going, affectionate, and cuddly.  What a lovely compliment.  Now let me tell you a bit about myself.  I love people, children, and even cats are cool with me.  I am quite timid so as far as other dogs are concerned, I’m not too comfortable with them, so I’m best to go to a home either where I’m the only dog or to a home with a very laid-back dog.  I’m not a big barker unless a ball is involved.  I’m a crazy ball gal.  I love to play ball.  The only problem is I tend to destroy them.  I don’t do this with anything else but I sure love to not only fetch my ball but chew it into an unrecognizable state.  Go figure!  I’m gentle with my food and my treats…but with my ball…not so much.  I get pretty possessive about it so I don’t like anyone trying to take it from my mouth.  It’s the only thing I’m possessive about so that’s not too terrible.  I’m not in love with loud noises like the vacuum or thunder but I don’t totally freak out either.  I love swimming, running, playing fetch, car rides, and of course cuddles.  I don’t like being left alone but I know you have to do some things without me so I’m sort of okay with that.  I know my commands and I’m not too bad on the leash particularly if you use a harness.  So, everyone in Golden Rescue…that’s the skinny!  Now there’s a funny human expression.  I’m not skinny yet but I’m working on it (teehee).

Jemma is currently being fostered in the Ottawa, ON area. If you would like more information about Jemma please call our hotline toll free at 1-866-712-8444 or email and one of our volunteers will be happy to return your call.
