He is being surrendered because his owner passed away and the rest of the Family cannot keep him. He was only with the Niece of the Owner for 2 days and she was able to give me the following info about JoJo. He is house trained and goes on wee wee pads in the house, its fed Pedigree dry dog food and is very friendly with strangers. BEHAVIOR DURING INTAKE: JoJo was very friendly with Counselors and allowed all handling, photos, and loading into the truck for transport.
06/12/2015 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: I have a very soft spot for Jojo, a nine month old pup left into our care as his owner passed away. I met him only once and he is already so much on my mind… It is obvious that Jojo was loved, played with and cared for. He is one happy go lucky little guy, carefree and ingineered to have a positive and outgoing look on life. His smile is large, his eyes glittery, his tail always wagging and he makes me feel good just watching him be. He is silly and boisterous, wants to meet people and dogs alike and is so clumsy in his moves. He sometimes seems not to know what to do with himself. He wants to be hugged, kiss his caretaker, mouth a little her hand, get all her attention and love. He is such a babe. He still has big paws and a mushy, sweet and clueless face that is the hallmark of puppyhood. Jojo comes with little comments as his master is “gone” but a family member assured us that he was a good little boy…Jojo comes right away when called, sits on command and plays sooooooo well with the tennis ball. He can roll on his side then on his back for caresses. He seems to like other dogs. He is rowdy in playgroups and enjoys himself very much. Jojo thinks that life is a big playground. That’s his nature and he will always be so, even if he lives to be one hundred years….I love Jojo(who by the way, aced his behavioral evaluation) and I hope that you will too after meeting him at the Manhattan Care Center. Come soon and make Jojo you very best forever best friend.
06/10/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – AVERAGE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Jojo pulls hard on leash. He was enthusiastic and excited upon entering the SAFER assessment room. Jojo jumped up on assessor while positioning for Look, but eventually allowed his head to be cupped with soft body. Jojo accepted the touch during Sensitivity, sitting down halfway through, mouth open and ears back. He was focused on other stimuli during Tag game, running and panting with boundless energy. Jojo pulled back his paw during both Squeeze attempts. He required a bit of pressure from assess-a-hand before lifting his head. Jojo kept a firm grip on both Toy and Rawhide, but with loose, wiggly, playful body throughout. He is very social and has rough and rowdy play when offleash with other dogs during playtime. The Behavior Team feels Jojo would do well in an Average home that understands he is a young, high energy dog that will require training as well as mental and physical stimulation. He may benefit from puppy obedience classes to work on pulling, focus, and impulse control. He may also do well with daily walks, runs, exercise, as well as kongs and nylabones to positively direct his energy and puppy enthusiasm. Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted, with tail wagging and ears back. He allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 1. Dog sits still and accepts the touch, his eyes are averted, and his tail is in neutral position with relaxed body posture. Tag: 2. Dog is not fearful, but is unresponsive to the Assessor, and approaches the Assessor at the end of the game with coaxing. He is focused on stimuli other than the Assessor. Squeeze 1 / 2: 1. Dog gently pulls back his paw. Food: 2. Dog follows the dish with his tail down, body soft. Dog lifts head after a bit of pressure from hand to cheek. Toy 1: 1. Dog settles close, keeps a firm grip and is loose and wiggly. He does not place his body between you and the toy. Rawhide: 1. Dog settles close, keeps a firm grip and is loose and wiggly. He does not place his body between you and the rawhide. Dog-to-Dog:Jojo offers a rough and rowdy play and is very social.
