Since Justin was a HOPE dog, he is eligible to receive a lifetime of consultations with a HOPE trainer, if needed.
Update 2/15/2013. Are you looking for a smart dog who can quickly learn new tricks? Then Justin might just be the dog for you. Since his release from prison (the HOPE program that is!) in 2010, Justin has adjusted to living in a household full of noise and constant commotion. While Justin LOVES most other dogs, he does not like small children and would do best in a home with no children unless they are teenagers who know how to be pack leaders. Justin is very protective of his house and fenced in yard, but is the biggest lover when you’re ready to give him attention. He will play for hours with his brother and sister and quickly learned that barking while playing will earn him a time out in his crate. Justin continues to have some issues with certain triggers (ie., lawnmowers, motorcycles, etc.), but has come a long way since first entering his foster home. And while he doesn’t like strangers entering or leaving his foster home, once they are inside he’s good with them. Justin is a great walker/runner and does not pull on his leash. He would do really well in a house where he could get a lot of mental stimulation such as learning new tricks, playing games or even trying some agility classes. Justin is no couch potato! He is ready and looking forward to helping you get your much needed exercise! Since Justin was a HOPE dog, he is eligible to receive a lifetime of consultations with a HOPE trainer if needed. Justin has a lot of love to give and has been waiting a long time for the right person to come along and give him that love. He needs an owner that will be the pack leader, help him through his triggers, mentally challenge him and give him a lifetime of love.
