I am currently fostering a black lab/am staff mix. He has the rambunctious silly lab personality. He's all black and weighs 53 lbs. He is submissive but not to the point of peeing. He was rescued him from a hole on the side of a country road back in May. He wouldn't even stand up & the person who found him ( a retired vet) said he had the look in his eyes of 'just let me die.' We took him to the vet & found him to be healthy & his scars the result of probably being left in a pen with dominant dogs, no signs of illegal fighting. I had him neutered and fully vetted and he's also been to obedience training boot camp. He learned to walk on leash, to heel & sit. He also understands NO, house (for his crate) & bathroom. He plays with my 3 aggravating yikey dogs, one of whom is an aggravating 12-lb. alpha female terrier who bosses him around. He takes it all in stride & does not show aggression or fight. He is happy go lucky but still a little nervous and worried about them. He has shared kennels with two different female dogs (one pit mix & one heeler mix) who bossed him around and slept with him and he seemed to enjoy that. He enjoys the company of other dogs but ESPECIALLY loves people.
Jonah would like nothing more than to be a lovebug couch potato. He walks on leash to humor me but he would be COMPLETELY happy being wherever I am and forget about all the other dogs and activity.
His training comes with a lifetime guarantee with a phone conference between the trainer and adopters when he is placed and ongoing consults as needed with the trainer.
When I got home yesterday afternoon a female pit I am fostering attacked him fairly seriously. I feel like every time this happens he regresses more into his scared submissive behavior (understandably). The female is obviously not adoptable yet & I wonder if she ever will be. Meanwhile Jonah suffers.
Jonah will be adopted to an INSIDE forever home. Reference checks, vet checks and home visits are required. His adoption fee of $200 will used to help other unfortunate animals like Jonah.
