Jaybo's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Jaybo's Story...
(by foster mom Gwen) Jaybo is the ultimate estate dog or farm companion. Walking him gives me an urge to buy tweed knickers and Wellington boots. This young, robust, big chested boy is magnificent to look at with his large, square head and his calico patches on a deep chocolate background. He is playful but not rambunctious or high energy; he has a dignified bearing which makes him seem older than his two years or so. Toddling along is his favorite gait, with the occasional burst of joy that lasts about 10 running steps.

If this dog had been publicized as a pup he would have been in a forever home long ago. He and his litter mate Patches have been the easiest dogs I've ever fostered. They blended immediately into my pack of four large dogs that include a Great Pyrenees and a German Shepherd. All of my dogs like him. He is also completely neutral to my cats and even to my chickens. In fact he and Patches have lived unsupervised with my chickens and dogs, something I have not trusted other foster dogs to do.

He has been an outdoor dog most as far as I know, but he is polite when I do invite him indoors. I have not had him stay all night inside just because I have four big dogs of my own and it gets a little crowded. But if it is important for his adoption I will have him stay indoors a few nights to make sure he will not relieve himself until morning. I've never had an adult foster dog fail this test; it's against their nature to make a mess in the space where they live. Jaybo doesn't even like to relieve himself in the pen; he waits til I let him out each morning.

His gentle, wise eyes tell his entire story--he's a solid, loyal dog. Jaybo is not as outgoing as his sister Patches who bonds with everyone she meets, or even see from a distance! He will hang back a little bit until he is introduced to a new person. But after a couple of pats on the head or a face to face chat, especially if treats are involved, he will happily accompany you anywhere. I can walk him in the woods and pastures without a leash. He doesn't have a high prey drive and prefers to trot along with a person instead of running after rabbits or other interesting smells. Besides following my family around the farm, Jaybo also attends weekly community dog walks around the courthouse square where his noble bearing and polite friendliness make him a hit with children and other people we meet who might be overwhelmed by a more demonstrative dog.

He is happiest wherever people are, but he is not needy. When I'm doing chores around the farm, he loves to follow me. If I have to work in the horse pasture where it is not safe for him, he simply lies down near the fence and keeps an eye on me. He doesn't whine or bark in frustration.For the year or so that he was at the rescue kennel he became accustomed to not having constant company, so if you must leave a dog along during the day Jaybo would be a good choice. He loves a pen or a crate and will often sit or sleep in one that's open, just because he feels at home in them. He also loves to lie by my feet while I work on the computer or while I sit on the couch. He does not get on the furniture, but I'm sure he could be coaxed to do that if his owner wanted him.

Whoever gets this boy will be fortunate, indeed. His beautiful sister Patches is also at my house and is just as sweet as Jaybo. They are available together or seperately. I take pictures of them on our walks, so if you want to see more photos than the four allowed on this site, or if you want to come to my house in Pike County for a meet and greet, just let me know at gwenroland@gmail.com

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Jaybo, a Thomaston Labrador Retriever/Catahoula Leopard Dog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever/Catahoula Leopard Dog for sale in Thomaston, or seeking a Labrador Retriever/Catahoula Leopard Dog dog from a breeder in Thomaston.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Thomaston already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Thomaston breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Labrador Retriever/Catahoula Leopard Dog breeders who help with Labrador Retriever/Catahoula Leopard Dog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Thomaston paves the way for another one to be saved.
