2 year old Jonny, one of the dogs rescued from the puppy mill earlier this year when they were dumped at a vet to be euthanized because an Amish puppy mill was facing an inspection. (PLEASE remind your friends: do not buy puppies from Amish counties, pet stores, or online!) EXCITING NEWS as Jonny has come a long way since early May when he went to live with his foster. He was terrified of every movement, sound, or touch, only finding comfort with the other Amish dogs. Stressors made him tremble and urinate. Since arriving at his foster home, he has begun to trust humans.
Jonny now enjoys being the center of attention but is still reluctant to seek it, although when the other dogs are getting pets he slinks right into the mix like no one notices him. Trust is his issue. He remains fearful of strangers, slow to warm up.
Jonny likes going for short walks and is good on the leash but doesn't understand cars, bikes and groups of people yet.
He is beginning to eat in the presence of humans and near the other dogs but still retreats if anyone or thing comes near. He has shown zero aggression. He has spent extended time with a boisterous 5 yr old grandson and seems to enjoy small people (they are more trustworthy), whining for more when the kiddo goes inside, however, Johnny has never lived with young children and GRRAND will not place him in a home with kids under 6 as there is no history of him with kids. Jonny has been non-reactive with a cat, allowing it to rub under his chin.
Jonny remains a flight risk; so he will need an above ground secure fenced yard, he knows his name and responds with acknowledgment and a short advance, but he still doesn't come, so at his foster home he still wears a short leash, just in case. He definitely knows how to play keep away!
Jonny is beginning to show evidence of joy and happiness, with his head held high, tail and ears up, his bouncy run and the zoomies. He is learning to chew on bones but still ignores stuffies.
This little guy was so thin, matted (he had to be shaved) and fearful of everything when he arrived. His fur is growing back, he has put on weight, and he is beginning to trust and be happy. Instead of cowering in fear, he follows foster mom everywhere.
Jonny is a sharp little guy who is really ready for a family that will love him. He's come a long way and still has lots to learn and trust to develop but he's ready to establish that bond with that forever family. He is on his way to being a great companion.
