Jewels is quite the character. We have been through so much with her, not the typical person would put up with. But we love her and Forunately, my dad and I dont have the heart to give her away or euthanize her. So here she is staying with us. She'll be like this for the rest of her life but what else can I do, Her aggressiveness will never change unless someone really works with her, but I dont have the time. This way, at least she's with the ones she loves, here in our home =)
Jewels had 6 other brothers and sisters. Her and her brothers and sisters were brought to a shelter when they were 4 weeks old due to the mother of the pups, that got hit by a car and was killed. As sad as it was, Jewels was the last dog to be adopted, but luckily we got her. Jewels is truely a great dog, very sweet but when it comes to strangers she is unpredictable and aggressive, but when and IF you get to know her, you will really see what a great dog she is, and I will love her no matter what she does.
Aggressive to Others, Sweet to Us =)

Hi Everyone!! Well as for Jewels aggressiveness, that hasn't got any better or any worse, it always has been the same. I would of took her to training a couple of years ago, but my dad never wanted to spend money to fix her. So we've grown to being used to her aggressiveness as sad as that is. At this point it would take a whole lot of money, time, patience and effort to fix the problem all of which I don't have with training my other dog Toby so he doesn't become like her and so he's a well mannered dog. But anyways enough about that, wish our family and Jewels luck, shes going into the vet on saturday to get blood tests done, she's had an condition we don't know for awhile, she drinks about 5-10 bowls of water a day, and it's not like shes an active dog, she sleeps more than half the day and only gets walks about 2-3 times a day around the block. Sometimes she also gets in moods where she doesn't want to be around people and hides, which is also why we are concerned. She constantly wants to eat, drinks a whole lot and urinates quite a lot too. I just hope she's going to be okay, we don't know what we are going to do if she has something serious, we love her with all our heart even if she has behavioural problems. Also, Toby has grown up with her for the past 2 years and he loves her, everytime we go out with him and come home to Jewels, every single time he gives her a kiss when we enter in the door way. Well I guess we will find out soon whats wrong with her, I know theres definitely something up. Wish us luck!!!! ♥

I don't know if I can do this anymore...taking care of Jewels has been so rough...and shes getting more and more aggressive...I started walking her on my own which is ROUGH because I only weigh like 90 pounds...and shes 80, and when she pulls its like 200 pounds...so we finally bought her a halter... and she did pretty good on it, except for today...she saw a freaky old man who was very suspicious, and she freaked out, her haltie came off, and almost got him, because she literally was pulling so hard i was standing my ground and she pulled me and i was sliding in the dirt, and then the stupid old man is standing there looking at me I felt like saying ..KEEP WALKING... I don't know...shes just so much to handle..I cant have ANYONE in my house...no friends unless shes upstairs and were down here, thats if my friends are BRAVE enough to come to my house.....I love this dog so much, but I wish someone who had the time and money, and effort to take her from me and train her, because I can tell you right now, shes worth every penny...she is a extremely sweet sweet SWEEEEET dog, no doubt about that, I just wish she could have someone who can give her more than she gets, someone who will give her a better life...but not many people are willing to take on an aggressive BIG dog.. I love her so much and thats why I continue to struggle to take care of her, I don't want to give her away, but if there was an opportunity I think I would have second thoughts...at least think about it....she deserves a much better life!

Well..It all started when We bought her from a no-kill shelter in Toronto, Ontario. As Soon as I saw her at the dog show my sister, my mom and I attended I knew she was the one. That was probably a saturday and couldn't wait until I got home to tell my dad about her.. I did and my dad didn't think it was a good idea coming from an unknown home and everything but I didn't care I was determined to get her ASAP. So that tuesday my dad finally agreed and we picked her up...She was the last puppy of her 6 other brothers and sisters. Ever since then I have loved her from the bottom of my heart. Everything about her just makes me so happy...she is my life and if she were ever to leave it wouldn't be the same. We have been through ALOT of rough ROUGH ROUGH times with her...She has had many ACCIDENTS with people..like bites and many times My dad thought of putting her down in anger...but I couldn't let him even if it was for the best ... I couldn't imagine my life without this dog...She is the most precious..the most special dog I ever had and probably the only dog I'll ever have again that has meant this much to me and has put an huge impact on my life. I've learned so much when Jewels was growing up more than I'll ever learn again about bringing up a dog.. It was hard but in the end I can tell you for me it was worth it...Jewels has fear aggression and it is very hard to keep her tamed but my dad doesn't see how much she needs help and that I'll never give her up even if she nearly kills me...Most people if they would have Jewels they would of put her down the second she bit even 1 person but I will not allow that to happen because I love her more than anyone knows. I never knew I would love this dog so much the way I do but I can't help the way I feel.. My dad was so close to putting her down like last week and this was so serious ...I broke down and this happens a lot because My dad is sick of being put through all the stuff we go through with Jewels but if it were up to me I would of got training like 2 years ago...I don't think its to late... but Anyways All that matters is shes fine...Its amazing how scared Jewels gets when my dad is mad but continues to love him so much.. I have NEVER EVER EVER seen a dog that loves a human being like this...Its crazy...Jewels is just a VERY Sweet dog that doesn't like strangers... I've always said that if she was friendly...she would be the perfect dog...and that is what she is to me... My Perfect Dog...that I will always love to the end of her time with us*
