Meet Jose Cuervo (JC)! This beautiful boy is looking for a family that will help him understand that the world is not such a scary place. We've all known those dogs that seem fearless, curious and trust every human they see. Sadly, JC isn't one of those dogs. He finds strangers and everyday objects frightening such as fire hydrants, traffic, large objects, telephone poles, wires, and more.

We think JC would do best in a quiet home with a happy, confident dog who can model normal dog behavior for him especially around what he perceives as scary. He is slow to warm up to humans, but once he's comfortable you will be rewarded with kisses and muzzle nuzzles. JC needs patience when meeting new people and would benefit from a family who understands this.

JC is house broken, does well in a crate and loves to play with toys and other dogs.

Can you give JC the love and understanding he deserves?

If you're interested in adopting JC, please visit our website to learn about our adoption process and to fill out an application, here. All of our dogs will be micro-chipped, spayed or neutered, and up-to-date on vaccinations at the time of adoption.

Gateway Pet Guardians is proud to offer a variety of mixed breed dogs available for adoption. However, please keep in mind that we rarely know the genetic background of the animals we rescue and, as such, we cannot guarantee the exact breed combinations found within this dog. Just know that this dog is probably a variety of several different breeds that have combined to create one very amazing and unique animal.
