Jedd spent most of his first year on a farm, living outside or in a barn (probable "backyard breeder"). He was adopted from the farm by a woman who wanted to give Jedd his forever home. She took Jedd to the vet for a check-up, shots, and neutering. The vet told her Jedd had a cleft palate (an opening in the roof of his mouth) and needed to see a specialist. The specialist confirmed that Jedd needed an expensive surgery followed by a 6-8 week recovery. She could not afford the surgery, nor could she handle the recovery. So, she contacted Brookline and Jedd came into foster care. Jedd had surgery on July 26th and is completely healed and back to normal.
Jedd loves toys and enjoys playing fetch. When he’s in the mood, he brings the toy back. Other times, he runs after the ball but then gets distracted. Jedd enjoys a good game of tug with a person or another dog. He loves to run and wrestle with other dogs. With people, Jedd loves to snuggle and get his butt scratched. He would love to sleep in bed with his people, but he sometimes likes to chew on the blankets or sheets. So he sleeps in his crate for now. Once he’s past this chewing phase, he’d be happy to keep you warm at night!
Jedd is housebroken. But, as mentioned, he still sometimes chews things he shouldn’t. So he is crated when no one is home to supervise him. When someone is home, he has run of the house – but we do need to check on him occasionally to make sure he’s behaving!
Jedd loves to give kisses. He sometimes gets mouthy and chews on hands or arms when he is excited. He doesn’t typically jump on people – unless he is overly excited. Jedd sometimes lacks impulse control. He gets overly excited easily. We think this is because he received little to no training for the first year of his life. He needs a family who will continue to work on his training – doing basic obedience such as ‘sit-stay’, ‘down-stay’, and ‘place’ – to help Jedd learn to control himself when he starts to lose his little puppy-mind. ;-)
Jedd also has anxiety, probably related to his rough start in life and all the changes he has gone through in the last few months. The vet started him on medications to help relieve his anxiety. The meds, paired with training, will help Jedd gain confidence, learn self-control, and grow into the great dog he is meant to be. Jedd is being weaned off the meds as he is making improvements.
Jedd would do best in a calm, quiet home with no young children and no other dogs. Jedd loves to play with other dogs and is great with them most of the time. However, he initiated a few scuffles with other dogs in his foster home. Jedd needs his own space where he can chill with his humans and not be hyped-up by the presence of other dogs or the excitement of children running around. Jedd has not been exposed to cats, but we think he would probably chase cats and get very worked up – so cats are not a good idea for Jedd, either.
Jedd is beautiful, sweet, soft, cuddly, smart, funny – he’s easy to love. He is looking for a forever family who can provide him with love, stability, structure, training, and plenty of butt scratches. He will repay you with kisses and tail wags and wiggles that will melt your heart.
