Jade joined our family in 2005. We responded to a add in the newspaper that a home was needed for a Eski that had recently been rescued from an abusive family. We took the kids to look at the pup and we fell in love with her the moment we seen her. She was very shy and skiddish from being beaten and abused. We took her home and gave her plenty of love and lots of spoiling. She has overcome the skiddishness but not the shyness. She is very, very good with kids. She has never groweled or even tried to bite anyone. She will bark and let you know when someone is around but she is an overall great dog. She loves to be spoiled and is a lapdog as long as you allow it. She loves baths and loves to wake you up by licking your face in the middle of the night when she needs out to go to the bathroom. We hope to have her around for lots more years.
