Jett was surrendered to SNAFU Rescue via breeder release. His breeder wanted him to be placed in a loving pet home and to live the rest of his life as a loved and cherished pet.
Jett is a huge sweetheart who loves soft beds, blankets, napping, snuggles, snacks, following his foster parents every move, shadowing his foster brothers, chewing on bones and napping on the couch (yes we said napping twice!). Jett is the ultimate couch potato but don’t be fooled by his age as Jett is young at heart! He has a very sweet loving disposition and just wants to be loved and be around his people. Jett has yet to discover toys but he loves to wiggle on his back to initiate play with his foster brothers to get their attention. He enjoys short walks and does great on a leash. He is a very quiet guy and does not bark. Jett seems to get along well with every human he meets, including teenage children, and has done very well with every other dog he meets! He has not been around cats but we think he would be fine given his easy going nature.
Jett is doing amazingly well with potty training. He has been nearly accident-free and is consistent with going potty outside. He will tell you when he needs to go. Jett has a “potty” move. He will look at you and pace while starring at the corners of the room. Jett will insist that you go outside with him but he doesn’t like to linger out in the cold, which we don’t blame him. He will finish his business quickly so that he can find his way back inside to a soft comfy spot to snuggle. As with all of our dogs, his adopter will need to be able to and willing to continue working on potty training with him. He has also done great (actually perfect) with crate training and sleeps quietly in his crate during the day when his foster family happens to leave the home. Given Jett loves soft comfy spots, he would love nothing more than to have his crate appointed with a soft crate pad and blanket. Jett is not left in his crate for more than 3-4 hours at a time. Jett does sleep in his human’s bed at night and loves to snuggle at their feet surrounded by warmth, love and his foster brothers. For his safety, we recommend that he keep a similar crating schedule when his humans are away from the home and/or he is left unsupervised so he is safe and secure while no one is home. He does not know danger and is still learning what is expected of him inside the home.
Medically, Jett seems to be in great health! He has been neutered, had a dental, updated on vaccinations/dewormings, is microchipped and has been given a clean bill of health by our veterinarian! He does seem to have some allergies that are managed by a daily Zyrtec (generic).
Jett would do well in almost any type of home but a house with a fenced yard will be preferred for him (opposed to a multiple floor apartment style dwelling with many stairs) though this is not required for adoption. Jett would prefer a family that loves to spend time at home or a family that is willing to take him with when they go out. We also think he'd love to go work with his new family if they wanted to take him with them to the office! He loves to meet new people! If his people are not able to take him to work with them, no problem - he's completely happy sleeping the day away in his kennel as long as his people can arrange a mid-day potty break for him!
If you feel like your family might be the perfect forever home for Jett, please submit an adoption application for him today!!
NOTE: Please note that it will likely be at *least* a 3-4 week minimum before you hear back from us after submitting an adoption application. We typically accept for new applications for a period of 7 days or until 20 applications have been received for any newly available dog. After that time period, the applications are sent on to the foster family for review and that usually takes from at *least* a few days to a week to sort through the applications, etc. :-) Most of our dogs receive several applications so this process does take some time, especially on dogs who are more popular for one reason or another. We do require phone interviews to be conducted between the foster family and potential adopters, vet reference checks and a home visit to be conducted for all potential adopters, if they are selected as the top choice applicant, which will also take time to complete. That being said, we do always let our applicants know if they are chosen or not. :-)
IF you happen to not be chosen, please don't feel discouraged as, again, we usually get several applications for each dog, and sometimes it can be very difficult to choose just one adopter. In those cases, we usually offer to keep the applications for adoption on file for any future dogs that come into our rescue. :-)
ALL adopters are required to come and pick up their adopted dogs in person from the dog's foster home (we do not ship any of our dogs). Please have road/driving transport plans in place to pick up an adopted dog before you apply! While we are not against adopters flying a foster dog in cabin on a commercial flight, please keep in mind that many are not good candidates for flying due to size and/or being a brachycephalic/short nosed breed.
If an adopter can not keep one of our grads, for any reason at all, at ANY point in time, they *must* be willing and able to return their adopted dog to his/her original foster home, despite distance and any costs that would be required to do so.
