Jairo – Available for adoption
Male / Neutered / $425
Breed Guess: Yorkie / Terrier
Age: 1 year old
Jairo is a very special dog. He is very energetic and a lot of fun. He isn’t bothered by CATS and essentially LOVES everybody. He is all yorkie in his personality: although he is small (only about 6 lbs) thinks he is 60 lbs. He is just 1 year old
Nothing seems to scare him, except for the vacuum. He is very sensitive to any noise and subsequently barks at everything (though we are working on desensitizing him) we think this is so deeply ingrained in his DNA, it is something that will not be curbed. Due to this, we think he would be best in a single family home (vs apartment or condo). No cats for this guy: they are too tempting to play with!
He requires an experienced dog owner also (Yorkies are terriers and VERY stubborn and do what they want when they want) and (with all DIBS dogs) we do ask that his family sign up for training classes. (Always a great relationship builder and helps the owner as much as the dog)
We are working on Housetraining with him still, he still likes to mark inside. He is still wearing a belly band until we are sure this habit is broken. Consistent monitoring and patience is required to break him of this habit (typical of any young dog). He is crate trained so will settle easily when put into his crate. He loves to be with you so if you do dare to allow him into your bed at night, you’ll find it harder and harder to crate him at night and he’ll come to expect to sleep with his human going forward.
While we would love to respond to every inquiry, only applicants who have completed a DIBS Adoption Application will have their emails answered. Thanks for your patience and interest in adopting a rescue dog. Good luck in your search and remember the dog you are meant to have will come to you in the end. Remember also, in RESCUE, there is ALWAYS another dog.
