Read about 10 Fido Lifestyle Types
|Size:||Small ( 12 – 30 lbs )|
|Age:||Adult Prime – 5 years|
Parrot mouth with no complications (just great pictures!).
|Vaccinations:||Yes, within the last year|
|Reason for Rehoming:||
I took CJ in as a foster dog with the intention that I would work on training him a bit before rehoming him. If I didn’t already have two dogs, I would keep him in a heartbeat.
|Preferences for New Home:||
A young couple or single person with energy and patience for a rescue dog.
I insist on a trial period with his new family. CJ is a wonderful dog that will be a great fit for the right family.

Meet CJ (Caesar Justice Minimus). He is an incredibly loving and sweet dog who will happily play fetch for hours and even go for runs! A perfect day for CJ is quality time with you, playing ball, and napping in the sun. He is very playful and spunky with other dogs his size but gets overly excited with cats (he wants them to play so badly he chases them often). CJ prefers not to be separated from you for too long and has some separation anxiety with being kenneled (he will bark until he’s sure you’re gone). He loves going for walks, being outdoors and whenever possible, more ball time. He is incredibly smart and responds quickly to consistent training with plenty of treats! He has gone through an 8-week one-on-one training course with a very good local dog trainer. He showed tremendous improvement with his anxiety and fear-based barking. He has a loud, hound dog bark that assures your packages will never go unnoticed. CJ has displayed some food aggression towards larger dogs but none towards people or other small dogs. He will eat anything and as much as he can get his paws on so free-feeding is not an option.He enjoys cuddling and is a wonderful companion during TV time or studying, very content when covered with a blanket. If you are looking for that special buddy, enjoy playing with and training an intelligent dog, CJ may be the perfect fit for you!
