Sociability with Dogs: Must be only dog
Sociability with Cats: Unknown
House Trained: Yes with dog door
Details: Red Merle - Deaf/Blind
Born: November, 2004
News From My Foster Family:
Jason is blind and deaf, but learned how
to use the dog door after only one demonstration. Within 30
minutes, Jason had located the
door and spent the next 2 hours just going in and out. He is a cream-white with
reddish-brown spots. He is very loving, enjoys being brushed when you
can get him to hold still, and his
tail, what there is of it just goes crazy when you touch him.
Jason has learned where the fence is in his yard, so he knows how
far he can run before there is something in his way and loves to run
out the dog door and keep going. He knows touch commands for sit,
down and settle. He gets a little anxious at meal time,
because he can smell the food but isn't certain where it is.
With the help of the dog door, Jason has not had any in the
house. He is very good about not jumping up on people, but will try to get
between your legs so he knows where you are.
Jason would do best as an only dog. He can
be very food aggressive. This agression can be triggered
even he even thinks there is food/treats close by Jason is a large
dog so children under
the age of 5 would not be recommended as they would likely get knocked
over by accident. Jason would also love to be in a home where
there was someone around all day.
My Perfect Home:
Jason's perfect home
would have a dog door so that he could go outside and enjoy nice days.
Because Jason is blind, the yard would need to be fenced away
from a pool to help keep him safe.
Jason was the first born of his litter and was turned
into the Kingman Shelter on January 22, 2005. Jason was rescued from the Kingman Shelter by HALT. Thanks to Donna and HALT for fostering Jason until we
could get him to the Phoenix Area.
