Everyone welcome Jumping Jack Flash (aka J.J.) to Paws New England. He was brought in as a stray in Jonesboro, Arkansas. His foster mom loves Border Collies and knew he would go crazy fast in a kennel. J.J is a Border Collie/Sheltie mix. He is super smart, super sweet and super active. He loves to give kisses and hugs. He is constantly going (hence the name Jumping Jack Flash) and would make a great companion for someone that hikes or wants to do agility work.

J.J is completely housebroken (learned the dog door in two hours) and is crate trained. He does not like the crate and will give you sad face and soft cries to see if will let him out. But, he will go to sleep when he realizes those sad eyes are not working. He also will stay in the crate while you are gone. He is a inquisitive boy who loves learning new things. He has learned to sit, off, and down. He still chooses to ignore the off sometimes, but we are working on it. J.J. Is still very much a puppy and is soaking up all the training. When he does stop, he loves to sit with you and cuddle. He will make a wonderful companion to someone willing to keep his training up and give him all the love he deserves.

**Update 11/21
J.J. has been with us for a month now. He is a great dog for someone that is active, wants to do frisbee or agility. He is a great loving goof ball, as long as he has activity everyday. J.J. smart little mind is always going, he is inquisitive about everything and is always looking for something new to learn. He is also super sweet, he does take the time to cuddle with his foster mom after she tires him out. He is also gives very good hugs. J.J. is a goof ball and makes his foster mom laugh on a daily basis. I have included several new videos of J.J. learning on agility equipment. Keep in mind this is only his second time to work on the equipment, he has the potential to be awesome at it with proper training. Also, there is a video of him trying to catch rain drops; like we said, he is a goof.

Check out his videos!

*Requirements for JJ:
A home where he will be engaged with the family, not kept separate. Agility or Frisbee work is a must for this dog or he will be bored and boring leads to destruction of things, like furniture... Although not all of our dogs require a fenced in yard, JJ must have one unless he is guaranteed activity every day for several hours a day (doggie daycare etc). This dog is NOT a couch potato and if you cannot provide the level of activity he will require, please do not apply and indicate that you can - it will only set him up for failure.

Dogs: Yes. J.J. Loves all dogs, not all dogs love J.J. He is a very active boy and loves to run and play. Which can sometimes get on other dogs nerves. But as he learns and they learn he does really well. He is living with four dogs now. From 12 years to 2 years. It took him a couple of days, but he learned which dogs like to play with him and which ones just want to take naps with him. He will just need supervision until everyone learns each others personalities.

Cats: No. J.J. Was tested with the cats at the shelter. He showed some interest but not over interested. With his herding instincts, we believe he will chase them if they run.

Kids: Yes. J.J. Has been around kids from 3 to 11. He loves kids, sometimes a little too much. He is just a pup still and likes to jump up and give them kisses. He will just need supervision until he learns all of his manners. With his herding instincts we would like to see him go to a home with kids over 8.

About Our Rescue Group...

PAWS is comprised of a small group of volunteers from New England and Tennessee trying to reduce the euthanization rate (previously 90%) at the Tipton County Animal Control shelter in Brighton, Tennessee. This shelter is forced to euthanize thousands of animals each year due to irresponsible pet owners that do not spay/ neuter their dogs in the area. Millions of dogs in America are euthanized each year due to lack of space and lack of funding to try and find them better homes.

Our mission is to save as many animals as possible, removing them from the shelter, having their veterinary needs met prior to traveling and then finding them loving homes throughout New England. We do this only with the assistance of many people volunteering their time by going to the shelter, transporting the dogs to the vet, fostering dogs who need special care, and arranging for their new and happy homes in this area. Most importantly, we cannot do any of this without those people willing to open their homes and hearts to these lovely creatures.

Come Meet Our Pets...

All of our dogs are located either in foster homes in New England or Tennessee/Missouri. Please email our volunteers to ask about the specific pet that you are interested in.
