Pre-Screener Form

Jupiter came into the care center as a stray. He was reported to have gotten into an altercation with other dogs while running around, but we have no further details including whether any dogs were injured. When introduced to another dog through a barrier at the care center, Jupiter appeared interested in interacting. However, we have not been able to thoroughly explore his behavioral repertoire because of Jupiter's low threshold for arousal and escalated behavior when he is excited. He bit a handler's ankle while running around the pen outside, leaving a scratch that caused bleeding. When the behavior assessor tried to hold his collar for the handling evaluation, Jupiter made it clear he was uncomfortable by repeatedly jumping away. He has become mouthy on walks, though he has not applied pressure. Due to his discomfort with some types of interaction and his rapid escalation in emotionally arousing situations, we recommend an adult-only foster home who can teach him to keep his teeth off skin and can help him learn better coping skills when he is becoming worked up. He has shown some potential for defensive aggression (freezing, growling) that a foster will need to be comfortable safely managing.

Hi! My name is Jupiter and I like long walks on the boardwalk and snacks. Boy, do I like snacks. I like beef flavored snacks and chicken flavored snacks and even fish flavored. I cherish them so much I take them ever so gently, so as not to hurt them. Treats have helped me acclimate to this strange, new environment. The people are nice, they give me SNACKS! I do twirls in my kennel when someone looks my way. I try hard to be brave and make friends but sometimes I'd rather be acquaintances, for now anyway. Maybe after some time and understanding (and snacks) we can be friends, too!

Head back to search more Boroughbreds just like Jupiter. All animals are microchipped, vaccinated, and spayed or neutered before adoption.
