He loves to run and play in the back yard and is very attached to our dog, Jade. He is full of energy, being a young dog, so he should go to a family that likes lots of exercise or has younger dogs to play with him. He is almost totally housebroken and is a very happy doggie.
We are planning on being at the Renaissance Festival on Sunday, Sept. 9 from 11-2 so come to the RAGOM booth to meet our darling Johnny.
Well, we are finally all rested up from a day of helping to man the RAGOM booth at the Renaissance Festival. What fun!. John-Boy sure got his fair share of hugs and petting. The sounds and people were a little hard to take for him. But, once we were in the booth and could settle down in one spot he was willing to meet and greet all new dogs with enthusiasm. He got along very well with each dog he met. He was more timid with the people, but by the end of the day he was standing up and moving to people to have them touch him. I believe he improved a lot just from the experience. We are planning on going to the RAGOM picnic on September 22nd so we hope to meet more new people and dogs.
Each day he becomes a little bolder. He loves to run and chase toys in the backyard. Now he has started carrying them out with him when he goes out. He also has been known to steal the kitchen towels off of the stove and run with them throughout the house. He has lots of energy and would enjoy another dog to run and play with. He still is a little skittish about coming inside through doors. He will dart in and up the stairs and run behind the chair in the corner to his "safe spot". He is just adorable when he peeks out from around the corner to see what is going on. When we sit down to watch tv in the evening he comes out and lays right next to me so he can get his petting. He loves having his face and neck rubbed. Such a sweet boy. Just needs somebody with lots of patience and a gentle touch.
We are back from a fabulous day at Snail Lake Park. What wonderful weather for all of us to meet and greet the many families that are associated with RAGOM. And surely, that all came to see John-Boy. In his newest picture you can see him soaking up the love and admiration of one of the picnic goers. He is such a sweet little dog. Each day he is coming more and more out of his shell. He still is a little doorway challenged, but he is working on it. Oh, how he loves to play ball! He chases after it and throws it in the air for himself to run after. This is a dog that loves being outside. At the picnic he even started seeking out people to pet him and rub him. Such a big baby.
He now has his own bed in the TV room where he sleeps like a gentleman. No accidents for almost a month now. So I have taken to leaving the baby gates open at night and he has still preferred his bed in the TV room. Even when my resident dog comes into the bedroom with me. He still awakes around 6 am, but is happy to play with his toys and the kitchen towels until I take them out. He is getting more adventuresome in the night, though, because yesterday morning I found my slippers in the pile of toys by his bed. What a little sneak!
John Boy met many wonderful people at the picnic and he is hoping that one of those nice families fell in love with him as well. He needs a kind and patient family with another dog to set a good example for him on being a dog. A fenced yard would be best, but not mandatory. Please take another look at this sweet dog and consider giving him a second chance.
John-Boy has found his forever home! He has been adopted by a lovely family from St. Louis Park. He goes to the welcoming arms of a young boy and one big furry Golden named "Red" (who hasn't decided yet whether or not he is going to let his family keep John-Boy) :) Just kidding. John-Boy and Red are happily playing in the back yard in St. Louis Park and I am delighted that he has found a loving home.
