Super-handsome? Check! Sweet, affectionate, and eager to please? Check, check, and check! Jericho is all those things and more!
Jericho (named after the wrestler Chris Jericho) came to Bully Paws from the King George County shelter, where he had been surrendered by his former family. We don't know a whole lot about his past, but we do know that he's one of the friendliest dogs around! Jericho really loves people, and nothing makes him happier than being with his favorite human(s). He also can't get enough attention; if it were up to him, he'd receive nonstop head rubs, ear massages, and belly scratches!
While Jericho is both housebroken and crate trained, he does need some obedience training -- particularly where leash walking is concerned. He's really food motivated, though, and he takes treats very gently, so working with him is more fun than it is a chore! This smart boy already knows "sit," "down," "stay," "wait" (as in, "wait for your dinner"), "release," "come," and "go to bed" (for getting him into his crate).
8.5-year-old Jericho has a playful side to him, too, and he enjoys playing fetch. He also loves to chew on Kongs -- the bigger, the better! He'll happily chew on a giant Kong for hours (and you don't even need to fill it with anything! ;) ).
Jericho lives with both dogs and cats in his foster home. He's been fine with the dogs; however, he gets way too excited when the cats are around, so his foster parents feel that he should be adopted into a home without kitties. (He is not aggressive towards them, but he has a strong desire to chase them, and considering his large size, he could easily hurt a cat, even if just by accident.) Jericho should also be placed in a home without young children, again because of his size.
If this superstar has captured your heart, please submit an adoption application for him today!
