About Dijon

Dijon is a 2 year old staffordshire terrior mix. He loves to run and play and would best in a home with someone willing to work with him on training. For local adopters we will offer 5 training sessions paid for to help with his transition into a home. He does great not having accidents. He does well with other dogs that can handle his rough play. He was rescued from living in a confined space outdoors so he didn't get socialized as a puppy. His best friend was a large male boxer mix. He loves to play with toys and play tug-o-war. His ideal home will have a backyard to play in.

Dijon will do best with adults in the home since he doesn't realize his size. 

We offer foster to adopt trial period. His adoption fee is $300. Adopters must own a home due to breed restrictions. 

Adoption Fee: $300

Hello! My name is Jeffrey Breed: Labrador retriever Mix  Age: 5-6 Size: 72 lbs Energy level: medium to high Training achievements: potty trained, leash trained, very calm on walks. No pulls. Good with: Dogs, children (of all ages), all people. Cats unknown I am a goofball who is leaning how to play, how to trust, and how to be patient when it’s time to go for a walk! Working on my separation anxiety as I was abandoned, who knows how many times. I go all in when it comes to loving my human! Health: very healthy and strong. Just completed heartworm treatment and it has been a success so far! Here is more about me . . . Jeffrey is an extremely loving, patient, yet anxious dog who developed his anxiety from being abandoned. There are many forms of anxiety in dogs, but it breaks my heart to know that Jeff’s anxiety stems from the fear of being abandoned yet again. He fears not being good enough, he fears being left behind, he fears being kept in closed rooms or closed kennels, he fears not being right next to his favorite human. I have fostered Jeffrey for about 5-6 months and I can say with certainty, that it is true that you must allow abused and neglected dogs the time to decompress and feel safe in order to learn to trust. I don’t even think about the why, what, etc. of Jeffrey’s past. I focus on the present and how I can best help Jeff. He doesn’t do well with negative reinforcements, just like any other being. Jeff does best with patience and trust. With this being said, let’s learn more about Mr. Jeffrey here! What is a Goonie? A goonie is a slang word for foolish, silly, or awkward. Jeffrey is a goonie! He is a major goofball, he never knew playtime or toys. It took him a while to learn how to properly play with other dogs. He has never been aggressive with any of the dogs in my pack; however, he was intimidated by them. He was not received so well because of his anxiety, but he learned to feel safe around them and still a goonie, he would chase the pack at play and bark loudly! He thinks that is the way to play. It is not. That is the way to start a pack fight and he will be very confused when all goes wrong. Jeffrey ends up on the wrong end of that scuffle, but Jeffrey is learning more progressively nowadays. He never has exhibit aggression, other than his awkward anxiety. Aside from being a goonie, Jeffrey is a very loving dog who loves to be right next to you. He gives the most loving looks and loves to cuddle. He definitely would make a great companion for someone who suffers from anxiety as well or for someone who is wanting to grow along with their newly adopted dog. Jeffrey is a great candidate for a family with kiddos as he loves children and people of all types and ages. Jeffrey does not leave your side while outside. However, it’s refreshing when he finally says, “it’s ok mom! I think I am going to stay outside for a bit and be a dog!” He has his moments of being independent. Overall, Jeffrey needs a very patient and loving environment that is willing to grow and learn with him. Willing to trust each other and have the patience to teach him how to relax and that he is safe and a part of your family, pack, and life. He has a lot of love to give and for that, I know that who ever chooses Jeffrey, he will choose right back, and you will just how amazing he truly is! We offer a two week foster to adopt trial period for local adopters Jeffreys adoption fee is $300 which includes him being neutered, up to date on vaccinations, completed heartworm treament and mirochipped.  show less
