Dog of the Week: Jupiter

Julia D Dog of the Week

Hi, my name is Jupiter and I can’t wait to meet you! I love everyone who comes into my home and I will make sure they know it with lots of kisses and snuggles. My favorite place to be is pressed up against someone’s leg so they don’t forget how much I love them. I am loyal to the core. The only thing I love more than my human friends is food. I love snacks and treats. I am a very smart girl and learn new commands very quickly if you offer me a treat for it. I take medicine every day which makes me happy because that means I get a piece of cheese or some yummy peanut butter to hide it in. De-lish!  Since I am a brilliant girl, I love brain puzzles that keep me from getting bored. Sometimes when I am bored I chew on things that aren’t mine, but I’m willing to learn not to.

I like squishy rubber toys better than hard ones. I don’t like kennels but if you let me sleep in bed with you, you won’t hear an objection from me. I love people, but dogs make me nervous.  I would do best if I were your only furry bestie. Loud noises also frighten me like big trucks. I am very skilled at walking on a leash when given clear guidance. I had surgery on my back leg that left me with pins and a plate but you would never tell. My legs are nice and strong now and I love stretching them on daily walks. I am very polite and will let you wipe my feet off before coming inside our home if you ask for my “paw.” (I also know ‘sit,’ ‘lay down,’ ‘wait,’ and ‘off’). Plus I’m excited to learn more if you bring the treat bag.

Once I get inside I’m quite the couch potato, especially if you will sit with me. As I said, cuddling is my favorite.  I am quite the slobbery gal but that’s part of my charm! Just thinking about my dinner makes my mouth water but no chicken-based dog food please, it makes me itchy. I know my natural brindle coat is beautiful but I am a fashionista that never says no to being dressed up. I love going on car rides so submit an application and let’s get cruising together on our lifelong adventure. Jupiter is about four years old.

Jupiter’s adoption fee is $250 and includes spay surgery, being up to date on vaccinations and preventives, a microchip with free lifetime registration, and a free obedience class.
