My personality

My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

No Phone Calls -Please fill out an adoption application, send it back to us and we will review and return calls. Go to to download and save an application. Email it back to to be approved. No Elderly Owners due to his past history. He will do best with an owner 50 years old or younger. He is an active dog and would be too much for a senior owner. Absolutely no children or grandkids.

Meet JoJo, an active, handsome 7 1/2-year-old black n white Cavalier-Basset mix. His owner bought him from a breeder. He will be 8 in October. When he decided to move, he turned him into a shelter where he was taken in by a rescue. He bit several of their people, and they didn't know how to deal with him, so he came to us. Every day we have worked with him, challenged him and corrected him to behave properly. We have not quit on him just because he needs to learn things. He has been with us for 3 1/2 years and has made tremendous progress. His issues are doable if you listen to our suggestions and what we have learned works for him to be a good dog.

He needs a calm adult only home with a good alpha owner willing to work with him. A fenced yard is a must. He is crate trained, mostly house trained and eats well at mealtimes. A home with few visitors and limited distractions is a plus. No children, no grandchildren and no senior owners due to his past. He can be with other dogs but doesn't do well with big dogs and cannot be in a home with Pitt Bulls. He is most comfortable with Cocker Spaniels and Corgi's, but he is not a dog who likes to play with them. He is very selective with who he likes and will bond well with you once he knows you. He can be a goofy guy, likes to play fetch, is a bit jealous at times and he enjoys mealtimes. A woman groomer is best when he needs a bath and haircut.

His adoption fee is $400.
