THIS DOG IS LOCATED IN ARKANSAS.
Jet is one of those breeds - you know - the breed that always gets blamed when bad things happen - a Pit Bull Terrier! But apparently Jet was raised right because he is a fine example of what that breed can be - loyal, loving, well-mannered, smart, gets along with other dogs, likes cats, and probably would be good around children. He also has webbing between his toes so is probably part labrador retriever.
Jet belonged to an elderly couple and when the man died, the woman was placed in a nursing home and Jet was left behind to fend for himself. There were a couple of young pups who were abandoned as well and Jet took over their care, acting just like a mother dog would. He and the pups started making the rounds of the neighbors and found a nice couple who gave them food, water and shelter. They would have liked to have given them homes but the couple are gone a lot with their jobs and they also live right next to a highway with no fenced area. Jet is now in a foster home with lots of other dogs. He likes his foster home but Jet LOVES attention and LOVES to play - he would really like a home where he has a buddy to play with and can be part of his human's family.
Jet has done wonderful on his crate training and house training. He needs more work on his leash training .... just needs someone who has the time to walk him and teach him what he needs to do. Jet is very smart, learns quickly and strives to please. It is hard to tell how old Jet is - he is well-mannered and reserved like an older dog and then he breaks out into playful behavior like a young dog .... so we are going to guess his age at two years old (estimated date of birth as 7-1-13).
Jet has been neutered and received all of his vaccinations including bordatella and rabies. He tested negative for heartworms and has been started on monthly heartworm preventative.
