Oldiez 96.1 is putting the focus on our furry friends this Holiday Season! We’ve teamed up with the New Hartford Animal Hospital and we’re proud to present “The 12 Strays Of Christmas Pet Food and Adoption Drive”! Meet our eleventh pet, Jillian the dog.

Here's Jillian's bio:

Hey you! Yes you. I’ve got a joke for you. Why does a dog wag her tail? Because there’s no one else to wag it for her! Good right? I came up with that all on my own. Ok, maybe not. But anyway, my name is JILLIAN! And I am a 6-7 year old American Staffordshire Terrier/hound mix. I came to the shelter back in August of 2011! Although I am funny, I am not only a comedian. I have a whole grab bag of talents, which is why we all wonder why I’m still here, and not with my new family! I am a high energy young lady, who absolutely loves toys and going for walks. I also love playing in the water. In the summer I even get my own kiddie pool because I love it THAT much. And when volunteers take me out for walks along the canal, I always try to entice them to go swimming with me, but most prefer to stay dry for some reason…. I do need a little bit of work on not pulling when we go for walks, but I must say that I am very good at listening and I think I would be great with a little bit of work. So if you don’t mind putting in a little bit of effort and are looking for an energetic lady to spend your free time with, I would love it if you gave me that chance!
