Jerico is an absolute doll. He has a whole lot of love to give. He has had such a rough start to his young life. He was a stray, who had been alone for quite some time. Suffering an old injury that was never treated and in pain. Jerico has had surgery for his injury and is recovering amazingly .
Jerico has a sweet demeanor, he can be a little shy and nervous, he just takes his time to become comfortable with new people. We have been taking him out to experience the world now his leg is healing. He has been having such fun, Jerico jumped in the river to cool off. He has wandered around Brackenridge Park, enjoying himself. He has been meeting lots of new people and really starting to be more comfortable. At home he is a big goofball. Running around throwing toys, playing with my dogs. Lazing in the sun, chasing squirrels.
He is learning to relax and enjoy life now he no longer has to worry about his next meal or having somewhere safe to sleep. I have four dogs of my own ranging from small Shi Tzu, to 70 pound Labrador. He gets on with everyone, both male and female. I also have a female foster who had pups, and they are the best of friends and hang out together. Jerico is a very special boy, he is looking for a loving patient family. A family who can continue to show him that life is good, filled with love and fun. A life where he can finally feel safe and secure. Are you that family?
He was scheduled to be euthanized, but San Antonio Pets Alive! saved him and now they are helping him find the forever, loving home that he has never known.
He is currently located at San Antonio Pets Alive!, and is in a foster home. By adopting him, you not only give him a new leash on life; you also save the life of the additional dog who can be rescued from euthanasia and placed in foster care.
If you are interested in adopting, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with Pet name and ID#. Please allow us up to 24 hours to respond as all fosters work with us on a volunteer basis.
