A Little Bit About Me…
A volunteer writes:
He may officially be a ‘senior citizen’ but don’t tell Jay Jay because this easy-going little fluffernut thinks he’s still a puppy! When I show him the leash he does an adorable dance’n’smile routine and as soon as we hit the street I can see why the hurry–he is SO house trained and has clearly been ‘holding it’ like a good boy for quite some time. Jay Jay’s very spry and has no problem navigating almost any terrain, he enjoys petting, can easily be picked up and held like a baby and as you can see, he’s such a good sport that he even donned a onesie for photos! Naturally he rocked his behavior assessment (perfect scores!) and in playgroup he meets other pups with amiable good manners too. Jay Jay is a little ray of sunshine and he’s looking forward to spending his retirement well fed, well loved and surrounded by an adoring family who’ll truly make these the golden years he deserves.
Details on my behavior are…

Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, eyes are averted, and tail is in neutral position with a relaxed body posture. Dog’s mouth is likely closed for at least a portion of the assessment item.
