Jenna came to us from North Carolina in April of 2022. Her owners were moving and decided to dump this 14 year old Angel at the shelter. She was skin and bones; you could see her spine and ribs. Our partners at Strong Paws pulled her and transported her to us.
She got in the backseat and crawled onto Jaggers lap for the ride home. She was an immediate crowd favorite. When we got home, we got her a cake and threw her a welcome home party. We vividly remember her eyes when she saw the cake, and that it was all for her. We love the moments when these dog’s realize what they can now call home.
Unfortunately, within just two weeks, Jenna suffered a stroke, but since she is a fighter, she overcame that over the following weeks and months. She was spoiled quite often and Anna would often give her 4 of 5 treats when the others only got 1 or 2! She was able to gain a good 10-15lbs, and she needed it!
Jenna had zero boundaries when it came to personal space. She would see a bed and it didn’t matter if 2 or 3 dogs were in it. She would walk right in and lay on top of all of them!
She was first to howl in the morning for breakfast but we couldn’t blame her, she was making up for a long time of not being fed the proper quantities that she needed to stay strong and healthy. After her stroke, Jenna made the trip to Maine with the family and got to experience many acres of farmland and some time at the lake.
It gave us great joy to watch her lay in the sun and see how content she was in her surroundings.
Recently one of the tumors on her leg became aggravated, infected, and should have been removed. Unfortunately, since her health had been starting to decline, we felt that she would not make it much longer. We decided to opt for treatments anyways, but after completing quite a few of them, we realized that our initial feeling was right and we started to see her health quickly decline. She started to suffer too much and was even having trouble standing up on her own.
Jenna was our blonde little pittie mix, and we’ll forever miss her. We will always cherish the memories we had together and the happiness and love that she felt when we hung out in the hammock together on those beautiful tranquil summer days.
