Adorable and super friendly Jojo was surrendered into our care as his very short term and well meaning family could not handle puppy training, which is not unusual. Jojo is very cute, petite and reminds me of a “Little Rascal”. He is bright eyed, owns an award winning smile, wears up and upturned his tail, is dressed attractively and walks, care free like the new kid on the block. You can not help it but to like him….Jojo is an energetic little guy. He is not fond of his kennel and let’s you know that he wants out. His tone of voice is sometimes upset… He is leashed in no time and pulls a little going around the block. He does his full business without marking his territory and seems quite interested(in a healthy way) in meeting other dogs, going toward them, barking and wagging his tail in excitement. Free in a pen, he seems quite happy to see other pooches in adjacent enclosures or staff coming to say hello. Jojo sits at once on command and for treats that he takes politely from my hand. He loves to run after a ball and catch it. He is really friendly, does not mind me putting a scarf around his neck, comes when called and will hop on the bench for bonding time. He is quite dear…According to the comments left by his former owners, Jojo who is very friendly, playful , affectionate and has lived with kids and a cat, needs puppy training and limits setting. Bringing up a puppy is not an easy task and to make sure to do right by Jojo and to ensure a happy outcome for both master and pet, only serious people should apply. Jojo is already dreaming of you and waiting at the Manhattan Care Center for his new master and teacher.
Jojo has lived with his current owner for less than a week. Jojo is described affectionate, energetic and playful. He lived in a home with children aged 2 to 7 years old. He is very playful with the children allowing them to pet him and jump on his back. His owner stated that Jojo is very mouthy when he plays and sometimes nip the children but never drew blood. Jojo had interacted with a cat in the home. He would stare at the cat but stay away from her. When he notices larger dogs outside, he will bark and pull towards them. When Jojo was allowed to approach another male dog, he sniffed at his face and tail calmly. When the other dog walked away from him, he would bark at the dog.
In the home, Jojo would follow his owner around the home. He enjoys petting and having his belly rubbed. Jojo would not react if he was approached while eating. His owner stated that he would growl if someone attempted to take his ball away from him while he was playing with it. When the children are playing excessively in the home with running and jumping around, Jojo would chase at them and nip at their legs. When someone knocks at the door, he will bark continuously. He relaxes once he is allowed to see the guest that enter the home and will allow them to pet him. When he left alone, he will urinate in different areas of the home.
FOR A NEW FAMILY TO KNOW
Jojo listens to the command “sit.” He enjoys playing with balls but will destroy stuffed balls. Jojo doesn’t appear to be house trained. His owner would attempt to place newspaper down but he wouldn’t use it. His owner stated that he used to live in a home with a backyard and would relieve himself outside whenever he needed to go. He enjoys brisk walks and pulls hard on his leash. He eats Pedigree dry dog food. He would sleep at the foot of the children’s beds.
Jojo would wag his tail and jump up on the Admissions Counselor. He allowed petting and would roll over when he was really relaxed. He responded to the command sit when offered treats. He was collared, scanned for a microchip (negative) and photographed.
6/12: When off leash with other dogs, Jojo greets and engages in bouts of play when solicited- however, with intent to mount.
