Are you looking for a big hunk of love? Hi, my name is Jethro Jr. (aka J.J.) I am a 4 year old boxer mix. I am a stout boy with broad shoulders and deep chest. I happen to have short stocky legs and a big thick tail that wags a lot.
I am looking for a forever family that will help me build up my confidence. I need a leader to teach me that I don’t need to be afraid and feel comfortable in any situation and add more skills to my basic training. I am food motivated, which makes me easy to train. I love treats! I have been working on my training, I know sit, and stay. I can be stubborn, but with some time and patience, I learn what is expected from me. I do well with a routine and consistency. I walk nice on the leash, but I may tug now and then. I am working on that now. I thrive on positive re-enforcement.
I am kennel trained. I go into my kennel when asked and I sleep there each night in the bedroom with my foster parents. I don’t even snore, which is a positive.
When I am let out of the kennel, or when I feel the need to play, I do play hard, and may get carried away, but I prefer to think of myself as fun loving and exuberant.
The rest of my time, I want to be by your side. I lay quiet by your feet or love to snuggle. I only come up on the furniture when asked. Actually I’m pretty quiet most of the time.
Because of my size I may not be suitable for small children but would love a family with adults and older children.
Go ahead and fill out my application (direct link below) because I really can’t wait to meet you and show you all that I’m learning and what a good boy I am. I think you will love me…no…I guarantee it! And if not, don’t you have a friend who needs a big guy like me??
