|6/10/16: JoJo has been here a almost a year. Still
requires a lot of patience as he is so full of life and happiness.
He will never outgrow the puppy stage. If it is within his
reach, which almost everything is, it is his. Once he is told
"no" on a particular thing, he will not touch it.... until the
picture changes. Slipper by the bed.."no" he will leave
them alone. Slippers left by the bath tub... that has to be
clarified also and so on. Do not counter surf my lunch
today. Do not counter surf my dinner today.
He is not dumb by any meaning of the word. He just has this
whole thing figured out. Each day is a new day so therefore a
new beginning! He is funny...if you have a good dog sense of
humor. The dust mop cannot move without him on top on it
helping. The vacuum makes a lot of noise. He needs to
bark at it to make it quiet. The broom has too many
bristles..... I love this crazy nut! He is
definitely different. He is like Peter Pan, who will never
1/06/16: JoJo is making great progress although he is
still catching up on the puppyhood he missed. Still a bit of
'marking' problems inside, but only where another of the house pack
has marked. He does the doggie door now just fine. When
I 'round up' the Komondors for dinner feeding, he goes out and
instinctively helps as a Scotch Collie was bred to do. He
circles behind and gently directs them through the gates to their
evening area. He is good on leash and in the car. He
minds well and comes when called. He loves to snuggle. And he
loves to play.
Once the heartworm treatment is complete, JoJo
needs a strong athletic person. He would love a mile run twice
a day or a farm where he could be part of the work force.
Although near 5 years old, he is ready to learn. He could
learn agility for fun. He is packed full of energy and
excitement about life.
|12/02/15: JoJo remains a delight. He can jump as if
he were on a trampoline. He loves playing with the other dogs.
Entices them to play but is ok if they don't want to. Is
really great with human attention. Does need exercise, either
with another dog or walks with a human. His
curiosity of new things has settled down. He is much less
inquisitive then he was a few months ago.
8/3/15: JoJo has joined the house pack.
|7/3/15: JoJo is good on leash and in the car.
Said to be good with cats. Loves water. He can be quite
fun to watch. A great personality. Gets along with other dogs
. He is 4 years old. 92 pounds. He is Scotch
(Old Farm) Collie and Pyrenees. Heartworm positive.
He spent his first 3 years of life on a chain. The last year in a dirty 6' x 10' kennel with a non-insulated wood dog house. Despite his lack of attention and proper care, he has a great personality. No food or other dog issues. Just so happy to have a big yard, another dog to interact with and some people attention.
