Jie-Li, known as Jelly, came to us from a shelter in Maryland. He is a timid, but very sweet boy of about 3 years old. His foster mom named him Jie-Le, which mean Pure Joy... That's what we want for this little boy.
A volunteer at the shelter sent me this adorable picture! How cute is he! I love when their little tongues stick out, as if there is just not enough room in their mouth for it.
Jelly appears to have been abused and will take time to trust a new owner. His foster mom said he comes and lays near her feet, desperately wanting to be close to her. He is not aggressive at all and is making little steps to realizing he is safe now.
He has a puppy cut now, and is about 15 pounds, but he needs to gain a little.
He likes to be outside on the deck-- are you squinting at the sun, Jelly?
... and checking out your new surroundings?
Denali, your Peke sister (foster mom's Peke) has become your "Scooter." If a Peke is a Scooter (named after one of my sweet Pekes), he is concerned for the new dog to feel safe, to know he has a friend, to encourage and try to be a friend. Denali and Scooter are both "Scooters." :-)
Life is going to get better and better.
