ENERGETIC & VERY SWEET!!!

Update 4/22/17: 

Jethro, a very handsome hound mix who seems to be about 4 years old and weighs 55 pounds, came to our shelter on 2/27/17 as an unclaimed stray from Animal Control.  He has the softest face and the most loving, caramel colored eyes—they will melt your heart!  He prances around on very long legs and he has a nice big chest and tiny waist.  Nice physique.  Jethro likes to run and play but he also loves to lounge.  More of his great traits: 

- very good on leash when he is away from the shelter.

- enjoys car rides and is very good in the car.

- likes to sleep with his paws resting on you.

- seems respectful of items inside a home.

- will “lean on you” for as long as you will pet him.

- is a “country gentleman of a dog”—seems to be very comfortable with who he is.

- is good with dogs.

- is respectful of cats but may chase a running cat—like many dogs will.

GOOD WITH DOGS.  RESPECTFUL of CATS but may chase a running cat.
