Personality Color: orangeEnergetic, enthusiastic. Needs good exercise, basic obedience training, fenced yard a plus. Good choice for an active person who wants a hiking or jogging companion.
JASON is a friendly and playful 2-3 year old dog who is enthusiastic and fun. He adores toys and chasing balls which is a joy to watch! Since Jason is food motivated, already knows sit, and is very attentive, he’ll do well in positive training classes. Jason will be a great addition to an active individual or family willing to provide him with a good routine and exercise. He seems to like other dogs, though slow introductions recommended.
A few words about Jason from our wonderful volunteer, Mary:
“What an amazing dog! He is going to be my new special friend!
Per other dog volunteers, Jason is active and enthusiastic, and can be a handful at times (he has an awesome vertical jump that can be somewhat intimidating!!), but once he figured out we weren’t going anywhere until he got himself under control, he became the perfect gentleman 🙂
He sat nicely for treats and for me to put his harness on. I got a sweet kiss when I fastened the harness.
It did help that my walk was his second of the day. We took our time. He is so very attentive, smart, and treat-motivated.
We practiced lots of leash walking. We hung out in the grassy pen. I sat on the ground. He has the sweetest full body lean that is quite dear, almost as if he is not accustomed to snuggles.
After the grassy pen, we walked with the slip leash and he was right by my side – no pulling. He really does have great potential!!”
Jason lives in Kennel 16.
