It’s been over 2 1/2 years since Jilly Bean came to us. She was in the Sanctuary for a full year as we treated her for her resistant strain of heartworms. Once cleared, Jilly moved to the adoptable list, but, sadly, the right home hasn’t come along yet. Jilly can be challenging at times. She prefers to spend her days in her crate, chewing on her collection of nylabones and will shred any and all bedding to her liking. Jilly can be aggressive with other dogs and needs her personal space. She’s very shy with strangers and rarely comes out to meet visitors. She’s happy with us, so perhaps she is meant to stay. We will give her another month or two on the adoptable list and if her forever home never comes, she’ll stay with us and become a Sanctuary dog, once again.
