Jed is a very kind and loving 3 year-old boy who came into an overcrowded county dog shelter as a stray. He appeared to either have been on his own for awhile or neglected in his previous home as his skin and coat were in very poor condition when he arrived at the shelter. Some of his hair loss was likely due to an allergic reaction to flea bites. Now that’s he free of external parasites and on a good diet, his skin is healing and his coat will soon be soft and shiny. The shelter called Jed a Border Collie mix but we think he might be more of a Setter, Spaniel, or Flat-coated Retriever mix. Only a DNA test will reveal the true story! In the meantime, we can say with certainty that Jed is a very nice dog. He has gotten along well with all people he’s met since coming to us and has been friendly with other dogs too. Jed seems to be a go-with-the-flow kind of guy who’s very happy with the simple things in life—a comfy bed, yummy meals, and a kind human to take care of him. He walks pretty well on a leash and will only improve with daily practice in his new home. Jed has done well in his crate and should be able to pick up the house rules quickly in his new home. He’s very eager to please and should do well in an obedience class with his new family. Whoever adopts Jed is going to have the pleasure of helping this diamond in the rough become the great dog he’s destined to be. In return, Jed will provide his new family with a lifetime of love and devotion. Jed weighs about 33 pounds currently and needs to gain a few pounds to be at his ideal weight. His adoption fee is $250. He’s neutered, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea and tick preventative, and microchipped. As part of the adoption process, all adopters must commit to a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email if you’re interested in Jed.
