A Little Bit About Me…
A volunteer writes: Juggernaut of X-Men fame was a huge, overwhelming source of strength lucky for me, this Juggernaut is much gentler! Juggernaut pulls a little bit on the leash, but is very responsive to whoever is walking him, seems very curious about other dogs, and loves to explore all the sights, smells, and sounds that he can. I can’t believe this boy is really 8 years old! He seems like a much younger dog, with the vigor and energy of a young buck. Juggernaut seems housetrained (waiting until we’re outside to do his business), loves to go for walks, and is a confident, adventurous boy. If you’re looking for an adventure-buddy who has passed his puppy days but still has lots of energy, come and meet Juggernaut today!
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…

BEHAVIOR DETERMINATION: EXPERIENCE (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially with the behaviors outlined below)
TM – Treatable-Manageable
Recommendations: No cats; Single-pet home; Recommend no dog parks
Recommendations comments: No cats: Juggernaut has shown an intense focus on cats and as a result poses a potential safety risk for cats. She must not go to a home with resident cats or where she may come into contact with cats.
Potential challenges comments:
Other: Owner reported Juggernaut will chase other small animals when outside. For these reasons we advise against a home with small pets at this time, and slow introductions should be done with large breed dogs.
