Comments: Jonathan is in a foster home and doing fabulously!!! His foster mom reports that he is very intelligent, and eager to learn. He is very treat motivated, so that helps tremendously. He likes to go for walks and walks well on leash. He likes food toys or a licky mat with pieces of hot dogs or peanut butter. He likes stuffed animals, although he does like to remove the stuffing and disassemble them 🙂 His favorite toy outside is a Jolly Ball. He also like to chase and retrieve tennis balls. Activity wise his foster mom calls him a "medium". Jonathan is house broken, can do stairs, and although he whines for a little bit when his foster mom leaves, he soon settles down. He is ok in a crate, but it is not his favorite thing. He can be a little nippy and jumpy when he gets overly stimulated, so we don't recommend him with younger children. He is fine encountering other dogs when he is out and about as long as he and the other dog are leashed and he feels secure. He does get unsettled when other dogs approach him if he/they are unleashed. Jonathan is delightful, fun and eager to please. He is in a townhouse with a small fenced area at the moment and does well as long as he gets his walks and play time. Jonathan would do best in a home without cats and as an only dog. Won't you be his forever home?
