A letter from Jojo's Foster/Rescuer: Jojo is an owner surrender; Jojo before coming to my home had only been with one owner, and while he may have been surrendered - it is obvious Jojo was loved because he's a fantastic and well behaved dog. Good foundation. I'm taking care of him until a deserving family spots him.
Jojo was shy at first, coming into my home with 6 dogs and 3 cats. He was more well-mannered than my dogs! He is part of the pack, and despite being the biggest dog he respected the smaller female being the alpha. I have three cats. I don’t know that he’s not good with cats or my cats won’t give him a chance – after all, they probably can't believe “another dog!?”
Jojo stands about 2' tall, and 3' nose to butt.
Jojo is a SMART dog. Jojo likes his own space; he’s not a needy dog and at night will sleep on a dog bed, the carpet, or on a chair – but never the bed. He is disciplined, and the only challenge you will have with him – besides dog hair on the floor – is his love of the water. He knows what a water faucet is, and he knows what a sprinkler head is – so secure the water spouts, your water hoses, and sprinkler heads. It’s easier than it might sound. We have found him more than once attempting to turn the outside water faucet on with his teeth. He loves tennis balls and tug-a-war.
100% housetrained and follows instruction; food and treat motivated. We have a doggy door; we go to work and kennel the dogs for 6-8 hours. Jojo does well but we didn't kennel him until after he was comfortable here at our home. Good with kids – my granddaughters are 6 and 9; instant love for Jojo, but they also have been raised with dogs and know the rules for dog manners. He barks to alert; when I work at home, he is chill with the other dogs as if he knows I’m working and need to focus. He knows the days of the week because the dogs go to the dog park on the weekends.
Jojo is a WIN for anyone looking for a great dog – wanting to skip the puppy years. Jojo would do best with a moderately active home, or at minimum a yard and a buddy to play with of the same size. Taken outdoors on the weekends at minimum, daily walks if possible, but most of all, someone who will commit to his 3rd home would be his final destination. Jojo deserves it.
