OWNER SURRENDER DUE TO BEING UNABLE TO AFFORD FROM SPOUSE PASSING AWAY :( Bandit is an adorable little Boston terrier/Eskimo mix. We think that this little guy is about 4 to 6 year old. Boston is quiet and friendly. He likes to be near people, but is not an all over you kind of dog. He's content just hanging out nearby. He's affectionate and curious. He's moderately food motivated but did not respond to any commands. He was well behaved during physical exam exam. He seems to get along well with other dogs, and was not interested in or reactive to cats at this time. We think he would do best in a quieter home. A busy home with noisy children might be a bit too much for this fellow. He will need some help adjusting to his new life, but should not require tons of training. We think that he would be best suited for a home with children 10 years of age and older. Dogs are generally tested with dogs of their own size; and dog meets with the resident dogs are always encouraged. Our cat test should be used as a general purpose screening only to rule out overt aggression; we always recommend caution when introducing dogs to cats in the home. Recommendation on suitability of placement with children by their ages is based on behavioral observations including energy level and response to body handling. We never recommend leaving young children unsupervised with dogs. Behavior evaluations should be considered as a snapshot of the behavior of the dog at this point in time; JHS believes all dog families need to be prepared to invest time and energy into training as well as provide common sense management of their new dog.

Special thank you to Mary Bruffett for sponsoring my adoption!

Our Adoption Process...

We believe in an open, non-judgmental adoption process. We recognize that no one is perfect and try to match a person's pet expectations so fewer pets are returned. Under normal conditions the process is:

- Come in with your family and look around. If you see a pet that you like, ask staff to meet the pet (if the pet is available to be taken out)
- Complete the adoption questionnaire.
- After the meeting, go over what information we have on file about the pet and his/her past experience.
- Finish the process by having a conversation with our adoption staff.
- After the above is completed, we can put a hold on a pet for 24 hours if you need time to think about the decision or to prepare your home.
- Most of our pets can go home the same day.

Adoption fees are: $90 - $140
This includes the animals spay/neuter, age appropriate vaccinations including rabies, de-worming and micro-chip.

Rules:
- We will not adopt a pet to anyone under the age of 18
- We will not adopt to anyone under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
- We reserve the right not to place a pet in a home based on the information we have or if we feel the pet is not a match for the person's lifestyle.

JHS does reduce or waive adoption fees for a variety of reasons: Too many cats or kittens in the building, older and special needs pets that have a harder time finding homes, etc. Adoption Promotions are a fun way to engage the public and bring in potential adopters. Shelters remain the #4 way people obtain their pets.
