Jonsey is the Bestest Boy in all the lands!!
He is a very sweet boy that walks on a loose leash very nicely, friendly with other dogs that he meets and is good with our cat (dog savvy cat used to living with dogs - doesn’t run)
He is a bit timid with meeting new people but warms up very quickly and is very friendly with adults as well as kids - he does not jump up (has met kids 7 & 9 years old that are very respectful with dogs).
Smaller kids or toddlers would likely be a bit much for this boy as he is scared of loud noises and sudden movements.
We have only heard him bark once or twice when something startled him outside at night.
He self loads in the car and likes to go for rides.
Another dog in the house would be a benefit (but not required), Jonsey likes to play a bit, but our dog is more like the “dog police” and not much into playing with other dogs.
There is no food aggression and he shares bowls with our dog - we free feed him, he does not overeat and grazes during the day when he is hungry.
He had one accident in the house (peed) when it was the first time so very cold after he arrived from Texas, but since just runs out doing his business and when done runs back in (when its so cold), He has quickly learned from our own dog to use the doggie door to go in and out when needed.
When he first came, he had just been neutered and did mark in the house, which we worked on and this issue has since resolved.
He is very adaptable to new things and while he can be scared and timid with unfamiliar happenings, it does take Jonsey only a very short time to get used to! Jones likes to play with his stuffies on the couch, responds very well to gentle corrections, he knows the word no and the command sit.
He is good in his crate when you lead him in, but chooses to cuddle with us on the couch and first slept in a bed beside ours in the bedroom, but has now made his way sleeping on our bed with our other dog.
