When you see his furrowed brow, you might think Jah has the weight of the world on his shoulders, and you’re right! Jah is blind, and making sense of shelter life and the busy New York City streets takes a lot of energy and concentration. Jah is seeking a home with a dependable routine, and a family who can help him navigate so he can spend less time figuring things out and more time doing what he loves—being with people, playing with toys, snuggling and enjoying the company of a few dog pals.
Big fan of: Cuddling! Jah is a lovable guy who enjoys affection and spending time with people and dog friends alike. Jah has a high energy level when greeting new people and often forgets his size and strength. Jah is working on keeping all four paws on the floor when he greets new friends, but more work is needed in the manners department! Jah also enjoys playtime with toys and peaceful naps on his favorite blanket.
Special features: Although Jah is blind, that doesn’t slow him down a bit! This smart pup is a fast learner who already knows “sit,” is kennel trained, and is eager to learn more basic manners. At the ASPCA, Jah loves training games that use a clicker. While Jah likes dog friends of all shapes and sizes, given his blindness, he should meet new dogs in a one-on-one setting first. Jah is already housetrained! He keeps his kennel sparkling clean and is all business when out for a walk.
Dream home: Due to his exuberant greetings, size and strength we suggest a home where some jumping and rugged manners will be accepted while Jah settles in. He’s already been practicing settling on his bed when he gets excited, and would love to show his future family his impressive skills!
