Jay — adopted

Posted by admin - 29/05/14 at 04:05 pm

Jay is a sweet, gentle, somewhat timid 4 year old Dalmatian.  He came to rescue very underweight, after 2 years of digestive problems.  His family surrendered him so we could get him the veterinary care he needed.  At first our vet suspected an obstruction, but the barium series showed nothing.  Jay has regained the lost weight, and is doing well, but, we still don’t know what caused the original problem.   We also don’t know if it will come back.  We are seeking a home for Jay, in the Puget Sound area, so he can continue to be treated by our vet, if needed.

Jay is social with other dogs, but can be a bit timid during the first meeting.  He has lived with cats, but since coming to rescue, he has shown a lot of interest in chasing them.  We don’t know that he would hurt one if he caught it, but, we do not recommend him for homes with cats.

Jay is timid with adults, and will sometimes panic or cower.  He adores children, and seems much more at ease around them.  We think it would be in his best interest to go to a home with children who will be kind to him.  Jay spent the last few years living in the country.  He did well at a foster home in the suburbs, with other Dalmatians and a large back yard to play in.   He becomes visibly distressed in the city, where strangers are walking around, and cars and buses are roaring by.

In short, we are looking for a home in the country or the suburbs, where Jay will have room to run.  A home with children and other dogs would be ideal.   If you live in the area, and are looking for a great family dog, please fill out our adoption inquiry form.
