Jethro is looking for someone who can give him several weeks (maybe less, maybe more) of space to adjust. He is not looking for someone who wants an immediate cuddle buddy. He WILL become your best friend, the most loyal companion anyone can ask for, if given the time. He WILL NOT be your  best friend at first. This is a known fact.

Jethro has a bad past, and his behavior reflects that oh so clearly. It took us about 3-4 weeks to win him over. He would do best in an adult only home; no children. Jethro has come a long way since he joined our SOS program about 2.5 years ago. Once he opens up to you, Jethro is the sweetest, most playful, well behaved little gentleman.

Jethro loves to jump in your lap or up on your legs for attention. He gets along great with other dogs and would likely thrive having a few outgoing dogs in his home. He also does well with our cats at the farm. Jethro needs someone that can give him time and patience to leash train him... he is learning to walk on a leash and improving every day, but at times he bites his leash and spins. Jethro can also be tough on a crate pad or anything else with stuffing that he can remove. Given this, stuffed toys aren't recommended for his play - which is fine with Jethro, he is pretty indifferent to toys anyway.

Jethro enjoys his time outside, but also enjoys being inside. He gets very nervous outside of his cottage and designated fenced area at the farm. Recently, Jethro has enjoyed some naps on the couch in our Director's office. Clearly this boy wants to be an indoor pet. Jethro likes his crate and does not show any signs of aggression toward his crate or food that may be in it.
