Jep is an interesting fellow, changing his behavior significantly based on his surroundings. He’s a big softie when in the house, only wanting to get up on the couch with you to cuddle. When you take him outside, he gets easily distracted by all the activity around him and tends to show off his strength when on the harness! This is easily remedied by using a front facing harness, or any leash/harness set up that turns him if he pulls too much. After this change he was very quick to alter his behavior and far easier to walk! He does his both aspects of his business within the first 5 minutes of walking, but you’ll need to get him outside quickly before he gets too excited and has an accident. As a plus though, I have never once heard him bark or beg. He also does not go after human food, beg at the table, or try to eat things off the ground on walks, and has never had an accident in the house.
Should definitely avoid small dogs, senior dogs and small children, since he can get jumpy when he wants scratches (from basically everyone). Jep is not aggressive towards any dogs or people, just so excited to say hi!. When alone at the park, Jep loves to play fetch and tug-of-war! He’s fairly good at giving back the ball, but sometimes he’ll make you wait a bit. He has minimal interest in other types of toys, preferring to snuggle up to you on the bed or couch when inside. He’s an extremely fast learner, after 3 tries he was able to properly sit and offer up each paw one at a time for me slip the harness through, and patiently sits while I buckle the leash.
Jep does well with 2 meals a day, 50% in the morning and 50% in the evening. Does very well with medication when it’s placed in food. He’s very patient during meal times, and will wait for you to give him the go-ahead to eat. He’s not food or toy possessive, and is comfortable being touched or held anywhere at any time.
Hello, my name is Jep. My animal id is #17805. I am a desexed male brown brindle dog . The shelter thinks I am about 1 years 1 weeks old.
I came into the shelter as a owner surrender on 07-Jan-2018, with the surrender reason stated as person circumstance- no time for animal.
Jep is at risk due to being diagnosed with Canine Infectious Respiratory Disease Complex, which is contagious to other dogs. He will likely require in home care with a course of antibiotics. Jep received an Average determination on his behavior evaluation.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: Wearing his heart on his sleeve–well, OK, his coat–Jep is all tail waggy, bouncing fun He’s still a puppy at one year old, the world is his oyster and he wants to play, snuggle, go on walks and play some more. His lanky, elegant frame is wrapped in a shiny brindle coat, and the coloring around his nose makes him look as if he has a little pink moustache — so cute! Jep pottied outside, but may need some ongoing work on his housetraining skills. He loves treats (and takes them softly), so with frequent walks, and lots of reward treats, he’ll learn what he needs to, as he already knows “sit”, “lay down” and “go”. He’s a smart boy, and when he sits, his posture is straight and serious, like he’s learned at the finest finishing school. As other dogs pass us by, Jep is excited, signaling his wish to play with a bow, and in group with females (he’s not been with males as of this writing), he loves a good bouncy game of chase. Fun, friendly, lively, affectionate, playful and an all around terrific puppy, Jep is ready to show you how much fun life can be. Ask to meet him today.
