JETT is a 6 year old neutered black male Lab who weighs 74 pounds. Jett is a handsome six year old boy who loves walks and car rides and has excellent house manners. He is a daddy's boy who also likes to help repairmen. He loves string cheese, cooked broccoli, apples and peanut butter. He can be strong on the leash, but was also walked off-leash quite a bit so he could stretch his legs. Jett loves his belly rubs and does not get up on furniture unless invited- or sometimes when being silly. Jett loves to play tug but he missed the "retriever" gene. He likes toys with squeakers and likes to tear the stuffing and squeakers out of his toys. Jett loves to open packages that are given to him (Bark Box, Christmas presents) but he does not bother anything that is not his (socks, shoes, pillows, etc.). Jett has a fairly extensive vocabulary and understands: Here (come), Sit (can't guarantee "stay"), Down, Roll over (with coaxing), Give me a paw/ shake, Leave it, Want to go walk/ride/park/outside, Want some dinner? Want a treat?, Want a bath? (Likes baths), We're going to bed. He knows that "we're going to work/school/store" means he's not going. He does bark at the vacuum and gets anxious when the smoke alarm beeps and especially when it goes off so it would be best if he goes to a home where burning dinner is not a routine event. He does require a physical fence because he does like to chase squirrels and deer. He has not been around cats, but given his tendency to chase squirrels, feline roommates would probably not be a good idea. He is approved for kids 10+. More info soon!

Adopters must meet these requirements:
Setting: Rural, Suburban
Dwelling: Single Family Home
Fencing: Physical fence required

Update: Jett continues to be doing great in his foster home. He slept quietly on a dog bed last night while the resident lab hogged the bed. He did great on his morning walk and waited patiently as his foster brother sniffed every blade of grass. Jett seems to enjoy sitting at the front door or looking out the window. He loves to be petted and his coat is so soft after his bath yesterday! Jett welcomed a visitor to the house today and quickly won her over with his sweet demeanor. This handsome, well behaved guy was left with free run of the house today for a few hours while his foster mom ran some errands and he did great. He is quickly winning his foster mom's heart. Jett is a gem of a dog!

Update: Jett is a happy, wiggly boy. He just arrived in his foster home and introduced himself to the resident lab with a wagging tail. He listens well and knows many commands. Jett rides great in the car and stays in the backseat for the entire ride. He is getting along fine with the the resident lab and would happily be an only dog as well. He has already play bowed his foster mom several times. Jett is a great dog and it seems his tail is always wagging! He will wiggle his way into your heart
