I am so bad at “diagnosing” breeds but I am so proud of myself…I saw right away that Jaz was a Bull Terrier mix. It is quite obvious, though…Jaz is with us as his master moved to a place not allowing pets. He comes with excellent credentials but we are told that he never really mingled with children or other dogs. He is welcoming of strangers, affectionate, playful and very much house trained which we could verify. Jaz did not expect to find himself again in a kennel at the Manhattan Care Center. Yes, he is one of our alumni. Jaz is a bit timid, hand and camera shy. Put him with another dog in playgroup, though and he comes to life, bounces, chases and clearly has an eye for the ladies…Jaz walks well on the leash, pulling slightly. He is quite interested in meeting other dogs in the park or in the street. Pigeons or squirrels do not attract his interest. He can sit on command and takes very properly treats from my hand . Jaz has been beautifully cared for by his previous owner. He is rather on the small side, compact and has the most lovely and well groomed red and white coat. Come and meet Jaz at the Manhattan Care Center. He is waiting to start a new chapter in his life with you.
When introduced off leash to another dog in the care center, Jaz engages in bouncy, running chase play with the intent to mount. His former owner cites “Jaz has never lived with another animal”. It is unknown how his behavior around dogs will translate into a home setting. The behavior team feels that Jaz could potentially be adopted to a home with another dog pending a successful pre adoption interaction and slow introductions.
Jaz A1073941 is an approximately 1 year, 3 month old Bull Terrier Mix. Jaz was a gift to the owner a year ago. The main reason for surrender is that the owner has personal problems and cannot keep the dog where they are residing. Jaz does not have any apparent health concerns.
