Shelter Dog Saturday: Jewel

jewel-august2013-0207Name: Jewel

Breed(s): American Bulldog mix

Age: 2 years old

Gender: Female (Spayed)

Jewel came into the River Rouge Animal Shelter with her good buddy Thor via the officers of River Rouge.  Unfortunately, Jewel and Thor had a habit of escaping their yard and their owner opted to not reclaim them and instead leave them to sit in the shelter.

Jewel is a happy go lucky gal who absolutely LOVES affection.  She enjoys long walks and has energy that could go on for days if you didn’t want her to stop.  She is very willing to please and has beenjewel-august2013-0204 getting some good basic manners training from the volunteers at the shelter when she is out on the twice daily walks.

Jewel would do well in any home but may be a bit too boisterous for families with young children since she forgets how big she is.  Jewel has shown some mild interest in the cats but with proper introductions should be okay with a feline member of the household.  She would also make a good working dog prospect in dog sports venues as she is social, willing to learn and eager to please and has good drive for toys and food.

If you’re interested in adopting Jewel, she is available for adoption through the River Rouge Animal Shelter which is located at 100 W. Pleasant Street, River Rouge, Michigan.  You can contact the shelter by email at or by phone at 313-205-1732.

Update: Jewel headed to rescue!
