Hello! My name is Jupiter and I am an 80 pound lover with one cute white toe. My foster dad has been working with me on so many new things and I can’t wait to have you teach me more things, as I am an eager and a fast learner. You can always tell when I am listening because I tilt my head to let you know I heard you. Click on Video
I’m a 4 year old, high energy pup and will need lots of attention, continued training, leadership and stimulation. Have I mentioned, I love to learn! Well, foster dad has taught me to swim and go up and down stairs, which used to scare me a little. I fetch balls and hold up my paws to put my harness on for walks (sometimes). However, I do get VERY excited and jump around when I see the leash. I am working on controlling my exuberant nature. In fact, I didn’t know how to walk on a leash when I first met my foster family! I will try to be patient, but please be patient with me as I learn all these new guidelines and they are reinforced with me. I want to please and be loved so badly.
I love to cuddle and get pets. I have a big personality and am a velcro dog and act about 1/2 my age. I am a handsome lad and my foster thinks I might be part Irish Setter because of my long flowing locks of beautiful hair, but I don’t really know. I am lean, strong and fast and I like to run, fetch and play tug-o-war and need lots of exercise to feel relaxed and calm. I am a very sweet boy and would love to be showered with love and attention 24/7. I go in my crate on command and sleep quietly in my foster parents’ bedroom. Since I am big and strong, I can be pretty energetic, so I am trying to learn to be more careful around smaller children and elderly folks because I really don’t want to hurt them.
I have been known to chase cats for fun, and I know that they don’t really like it, so I should stay away from them. I might chase a squirrel or bird occasionally, but a FIRM correction and I will listen to you if you hold me still. I like other dogs but can be overly playful and don’t really know my size and strength. I am trying to learn self control when exposed to new things but I am a work in progress. I just want to have fun! I’m the bestest boy and I’m so excited to find my furrever home!
My Ideal Home
I would do wonderful in many family settings, but I think I would fit best as the only boy with a family with respectful and older kids or active adult only home. I would also love to have someone home most of the time with a yard and maybe a pool. I would also like to live with someone who is willing to keep up with my training, exercise and be a strong leader. I am a friendly, happy, eager boy and willing to be the best partner to you for the rest of my life.
