Jerry is a quiet, gentle dog and gets along better when with other dogs. After a patient introductory period, he calmly tolerates being groomed and handled. He is looking for the perfect person to show him some kindness and affection and make him part of their "pack." He would love someone patient enough to teach him that the world is a safe place to be! This sweet soul really needs someone who understands that because of his turbulent past, he will never be a terribly outgoing boy and will have to become your friend over time, making gradual progress as you earn his trust. He just needs that special someone to instill in him confidence and so he can respond with loyalty.
More than anything, Jerry LOVES walks! His favorite activity is going for a walk and exploring your neighborhood! He sees that leash come out and really lights up.
We have learned through our time with Jerry that he has a skin irritation that requires a daily regiment of medication. This can be costly and time consuming. He also is sensitive to many foods and we can help list appropriate options for him.
Jerry arrived as a stray that was really in need of medical attention and grooming. His skin and coat are now healthy and he is looking very handsome!
Jerry came to POMDR from San Jose Animal Services after being picked up as a stray.
