Meet Jalapeno

Jalapeno / M / approx. 5 yrs / 60 lbs / Catahoula Leopard Dog / Mississauga

Meet Jalapeno! Jalapeno is described as loving, easy going, obedient and submissive once he feels comfortable with his people. Lovingly nicknamed Jughead for his goofy, carefree vibe, Jalapeno is a very happy boy. He is eager to please and is very respectful of personal space and boundaries. When his foster mom walks into a room, he is so happy to see her and he will approach with his tail wagging for love and affection. He is grateful for any attention shown to him but is not needy. When his foster mum wipes his paws to come inside he will lie on his back and show her his bell for rubs. He is so attentive and makes great eye contact with his trusted human.

His favorite activities include playing fetch with a ball or stick, running in the yard to get his zoomies out and playing with his canine foster siblings. He would love another well-adjusted dog sibling of similar energy to play with. He also enjoys snuggling up with his people when invited.

Jalapeno is cautious of new people at first and requires proper introductions and patience. After a few meetings he will wag his tail and watch politely from a distance. When he feels comfortable to approach, he is submissive and respectful.

Jalapeno’s ideal family will have lots of time to spend with him and ensure that he is included in their daily activities. They will be calm and patient as he adjusts to his new home and learns to trust. He is higher energy used to having a fenced yard in a fairly quiet neighbourhood, but he has potential to adjust to a busier area with time. A condo is also possible with a family willing to meet his active exercise needs, however he may bark at unfamiliar noises in the hallway. He would do best in a home with older, respectful kids (12+) who understand dog etiquette as noisy or boisterous activity makes him nervous. Jalapeno has several canine and cat foster siblings and would do well with most other animals provided proper introductions were made. Jalapeno would love to be adopted with his brother Pepperjack (also available through Fetch & Releash).

He is higher energy and would do best with a 30-45 min walk morning and night plus backyard play time and potty breaks. He is fairly good on leash, but will need a family willing to continue the work. He is very strong boy and can be spooked by loud noises like garbage trucks or snow plows.

When his foster mom goes out, Jalapeno is crated and settles immediately. At night he usually sleeps quietly on the couch with the cats or in his bed inside the crate with the door open. Provided he receives consistent potty breaks he is also housetrained, but his family should be prepared for accidents while he gets used to a new routine. He may still also have some excitement dribbles which can be managed by by maintaining calm, quiet energy when greeting him and ensuring he has his morning pee before showing him affection.

He is a very smart and obedient boy and knows his name, sit, no, go to your house, go to your bed, come and will sit before his meal and waiting to be released. He is also very respectful inside of the home and could eventually be trusted with free reign.
