What a difference a few weeks makes in the life of a dog! Dear JJ, afraid of almost everything, has come out of his shell and is acting like a real dog! He kennels happily for his meals, is learning to walk on a leash without flopping down, enjoys playing with his foster siblings, sleeps through the night uncrated, spins around on the couch waiting for his siblings to jump up with him, loves chew toys, and runs around the yard just for fun. He loves to sleep in Puppy Daddy’s lap and follows him everywhere. He doesn’t panic when the vacuum is running and takes treats gently from our hands. He understands “No”. His name and a finger snap deter most potential misbehavior (ie. Eating TV remotes). When visitors came, JJ was eager to greet them, share the couch, and go for a walk with them. The initial concern about his ability to share attention or be in close quarters with other dogs has dissipated. JJ definitely needs a home in which he will not be alone for extended periods of time, and would benefit from having a playful canine companion. His family should be watchful of belongings and should “puppy-proof” his surroundings. Please no sight unseen adoptions for this guy. We feel it is important for all family members (humans and canine) meet to make sure we have a good fit. If you are interested in JJ please complete theadoption application JJ is one of 10 dogs surrendered to ABR in January 2020 after their owner unexpectedly died.All were living in outdoor runs with barrels as shelter. The family notified ABR and we took all into rescue. This sweet boy is current on all vaccinations, neutered, heart worm negative and on prevention medications.He also has been microchipped.
