Update from foster mom 10/22/12
Little Jerry Seinfeld, at least that is what my husband has been calling him, because Jerry is a silly little guy, a comedian so to speak :) who is super sweet and loves to be held and cuddled. His favorite spot to sleep is curled up against my stomach all night long. Jerry was neutered a bit late and does mark a little bit but he knows he has to wear his belly band and when he comes in from outside, he stands and waits for me to put his belly band on. Jerry adores my children who are 3 years, 14 months and a newborn but when I brought him to a friends who has 7 and 9 year old little girls, he was not so good with them so he would need to meet any potential adopters children before we can know if he is happy with those children. Jerry, from the second he met my kids, has loved them and has been great with them so we will be able to tell right away if he is OK with new children. Jerry is crate trained but as long as he has his belly band on he does not need to be in a crate. He does nothing wrong except his occasional marking. Jerry loves the car and would love to be a travel companion. Jerry does like all other dogs and cats but he would also be OK living as the only dog who is spoiled rotten. Jerry is a very small dog and just the sweetest little guy, if you are OK with him having to wear a belly band at least until he has more time to work on his marking. He was just neutered so we are hoping that when his hormones subside he will stop the marking. Jerry gives so much love and joy it FAR out weighs the slight inconvenience of putting his belly band on.
Jerry was found living in a cornfield along a busy road in PA. He would been seen going across the road to where he had a little jack Russell buddy that appeared to have been hit by a car. There was nothing we could do for his friend so we tried for 2 days to coax Jerry to us. He was very scared and would run back into the cornfield every time we got out of the car so we set a trap with some food and thankfully it worked and he was in it the next morning. We were very happy that Jerry was not going to meet the same fate as his friend did, but Jerry was very scared. He wouldn’t come out of the crate for a whole day but eventually food was the driving factor. He is very motivated by food but has not shown any signs of aggression, he will eat and drink along with our other dogs without any problem. He is very friendly but is a little shy around new people and will cower if they reach out towards him but never growls or shows any sign of aggression and will eventually go towards the stranger to check him out and get petted. He does have an oddity with a screech like howling sound, on a few occasions in the middle of the night he made this screeching sound loud, the first time I thought he had somehow gotten a limb caught in his crate but that wasn’t it, I took him out to potty and that wasn’t it either – it’s almost like a panic attack, if I hold him close and pet him gently he will stop but I can’t figure the cause and it’s only happened a few times and always in the middle of the night while he’s in his crate….?? I’m perplexed and aside from that he is a happy go lucky little guy, he was definitely someone’s pet, he got back into the housetraining right away but still tries to mark our male dogs bed so hopefully once he’s neutered that will stop.
