|Pet ID #:||16-0325|
Jamie(formerly Skippy) is a sweet, spunky older guy with the spirit of a pup. He is a laid-back fellow with tons of love to give and always wants to be with his person. A very gentle pup, Jamie is great around all people - including active seniors and kids - as well as dogs and cats. He has a high prey drive for wildlife so pets like rabbits may not be advisable. He enjoys the company of other dogs and is learning to enjoy playing with them and his humans.
Being the older guy that he is, Jamie has some minor health issues but is in really great shape otherwise. Jamie will be best in a home with a fenced yard as he has a high level of energy and gets a little anxious without proper exercise - a walk or two a day likely would not satisfy his needs. He's quite the tall boy with a long and graceful stride...and he can go for hours! Alternatively, if Jamie had a human that took him everywhere with them it would keep him quite happy and tired - he's a perfect, polite riding buddy and loves accompanying for errands, and he's quite a persistent early riser so no late sleepers for this guy!
For an unknown reason, Jamie is mostly oblivious to noise - footsteps, doors opening, talking, whistling, gun fire - including recall/commands (he'll generally respond to clapping), but he is not deaf. He is walking well on a leash and will likely continue to improve with a little patience.
Overall, Jamie is a GREAT dog and will make an awesome companion!
