Meet Jericho! BSR 1148
Hi there, I’m Jericho but you can call me Jeri for short. I am a sweet, active 7 year old male, weighing 35 pounds. I am so grateful to Boykin Spaniel Rescue for getting me out of the shelter and for getting good people to foster me! My foster Mom says I have a cute personality! They are teaching me how to be an inside dog, and doing a mighty good job at it too. I haven’t had any potty accidents inside and I am learning all my commands.
My foster mom says I’m very active and smart! I came here knowing “sit” and “come." And my foster Dad says I know what “whoa” means too. On leash I really like to look around and investigate things, but I settle down when I need to. I will ride in my crate when in the car, the safest place to be! I am learning not to jump up on people when I am so excited to see them. I am affectionate and love people and get along with the 2 other dogs here that look like me. I am not sure how I would react to cats, but I have a pretty typical interest in birds and even point at them occasionally. I can retrieve too! I am very active and love to do things with my people.
While my foster folks work I stay in an outside kennel with my foster canine buddies. At night I sleep in my crate.
When I was rescued, I had a very painful ear infection that has now been cleared up. But to be honest I had those infections for a long time and I am very sensitive to having my ear flaps lifted. That causes me to have flashbacks. It was traumatic to have my ears hurt like that for so long. And I didn’t eat much when I was sick, but now I am eating well and hoping to put on a few pounds.
My perfect person or family will need to be people who will be active with me. Trust me , I’m no couch potato. I’d like to do some agility, hiking, and go on adventures with my forever person or family. Respectful, older children would be fine, as would a non-dominant dog. I want someone who will be around a lot since I have been alone a lot in my life. And I would really like to continue to learn my manners, basic commands and how to walk well on a leash. My new person or family needs to be committed to keeping my ears clean and healthy so I don’t have any more of those nasty infections.
