Crate Trained!!!


“But when we look for the good in others, we start to see the best in ourselves too.” Jay Shetty

Meet Jay! When this handsome brindled guy found himself over at Athens-Clarke County Animal Services, he’d had a rough start to life. He’d suffered a skull, spinal and a zygomatic fracture before arriving and has spent the last (almost) year recovering from his injuries with his incredible foster mom. Now that he’s fully recovered, we’re excited for him to find his forever family! Jay is nearing a year and a half years old now and weighs in at 46 pounds and is at his full size (give or take a few pounds!) 

Housebreaking, Crate-Training, and Commands

Jay has us all impressed with just how smart he is! He’s crate and house trained already, and even knows what “crate” means! He’ll sleep through the night in (or out) of his crate, and doesn’t mind hanging out in the kennel while you’re at work. He signals when he has to go outside. The only time he ever makes noise in his crate is if he knows it’s food time and hey, we can’t blame him! 

Did we mention he knows the commands “sit”, “stay”, “leave it”, “wait” and “quiet”? 

Behavior around other Dogs, Cats, and Kids

Jay is currently living in a foster home with other dogs and some cats! He loves having companions throughout the house and does super well with corrections from both his dog friends and his foster mom! Jay will play with the cats (if they let him!) and therefore would do best in a house with dog-savvy cats who won’t be intimidated by him wanting to play with them! 

Jay has been around children of different ages and does well with them too! He can get a little excited, but once the initial excitement of new tiny human friends have worn off, he’s gentle, sweet and well behaved. 

Behavior around People

This guy loves being around people. He loves to be loved on and to get pets from his people. He would be happy to cuddle with you, or just hang-out, whatever you want as long as you’re in the room with him! He loves to meet new people and is constantly making friends! 

Exercise Needs

Jay does have some energy! He is overall a laid back dog, but he still gets the zoomies from time to time. He loves to run around the yard to let out some of his energy, as well as going on walks and playing with his pack. Foster mom thinks Jay would be a great running partner! 

Things are only getting better for Jay. Does that include you? Contact us today!
