JP is a super sweet, fun, little Shepherd/Basenji mix who can’t wait to be your new best friend. He is 2 years old and weighs 36 lbs.  JP is equal parts fun and chill, making him the perfect roommate. He wants affection and loves to play, but he can also be really mellow and just snooze on the couch or entertain himself as you work or watch TV.  He is as observant as his ears make him out to be–he’s a smart cookie and eager to please!

JP has only been up north for a few short months after being in a hoarding situation, but he has made amazing progress so far. We’re working on getting JP socialized with other people and pups, and helping him learn that it’s ok when when people leave the house. With new people, he can be a little excitable initially, but after a minute he will love you like family. He’s not destructive or aggressive at all, but does (like all dogs!) need to be engaged to keep him happy and calm. He is fully potty trained and will let you know when he needs to go out, but will also let you sleep in.  JP would do well with someone who can keep him pretty active, is home often (he gets anxious when left alone), does not have children under 10,  and only wants to have one dog!  JP is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped.

The adoption fee is $500. We require a fully fenced yard and not an invisible fence.
