UPDATE ON JERICO!! 6/25/21
"Older gentleman looking for his retirement home; Sunny spot to nap is a must!"
Do you have a sunny spot or two to offer this awesome boy? He would love nothing better then to avail himself of it and hang out with you all day! His foster mom says "Jerico is one of the best dogs she has ever had the pleasure of meeting." ...And she should know; she's been fostering for ROAR for the past 15 years! It really says a lot when a foster thinks so highly of a dog in their care and Jerico is no exception.
Jerico has made huge strides since his guarded diagnosis two months ago! He has had two visits with a veterinary oncologist; one for a better idea on his diagnosis and prognosis and treatment plan and the second for a follow up. His follow up told us that he doesn’t have any new mast cell tumors, his scars are stable from where the two were taken out and he has no unstable new ones! All in all, he is in great shape, his prognosis is good and at almost 9 years old he is no longer considered a fospice dog- he can be adopted and live out his retirement years with a loving family. The oncologist even offered to sweeten the deal by giving his new owner discounted services should he need them again! Canine Company is donating (3) eManners/ Obedience training sessions to his adopter as well, plus, his adoption fee is already sponsored by a very generous person so all you need to add is the loving home!
Of course like any dog, he does have his quirks! He absolutely LOVES to lounge in the sunniest spot in the house and will lie there for hours sleeping. And like many retirees, he does snore when he naps! He dislikes lawn mowers and moving cars when he is being walked on leash though. He’ll chase them if given the chance. He is stubborn at times but he does love his short walks which he will need 2-3 times a day. Jerico is extremely food motivated, which is beyond helpful for training purposes. This sweet boy is hard of hearing so he's been taught some hand signals but since he will do anything for a treat and is a fast learner, most new things come quickly to him. He is absolutely house trained and doesn’t necessarily need a crate. He is not destructive in his foster home and has never touched a single shoe whether it be an UGG, slipper or sneaker! He is fine around other dogs but our preference is that he go to a home as an only pet since he deserves to have his one on one time in his retirement years. Jerico would also be best in a home with older children; 16 plus as he can knock little ones over with his exuberance.
We know there is a family or person out there for Jerico; one that is willing to give him the retirement home he deserves considering the hard life he must have endured. Is that you?
