Available Dogs - Jock


Jock loves the porch and sunshine

Want a dog who will be your most loyal companion? Look no further! My name is Jock. I love the outdoors—whether it’s sitting on the porch, stretched out in the sun, or going for a walk, I’m in! But I’m also 9, so short walks are fine followed up with a nice nap sounds perfect to me! And if you’ll let me on your couch or bed, I’ll be your best friend for life.

I really love to meet new people anywhere! If you come to my house I will be your new best friend!  I’m also really happy to go for a ride with you. Once I make sure you are headed in the right direction, I curl up on the back seat.

I prefer adults and teenagers over babies and toddlers. I’ve never shown any aggressive behavior with my fosters but sometimes I can be a little grumpy when they want me off the bed or couch. A firm word and maybe a piece of cheese will help me change my mind!  I don’t do that well with new dog friends, so I would also like to be in a home without other dogs. I have met other calm dogs easily and did okay with everybody on a leash.

I’ve never chewed anything up or had an accident in my foster home, and I will bark or whine when it’s time for you to let me out. I know how to sit, stay, shake and roll over. (See Jock's video below) I am a smart boy- throw in a piece of cheese and I’d love to learn a new trick or two with you!

If you need a best friend, a shadow, and someone to curl up on the couch with, I’m your dog!
