Meet Jacinto, a wonderfully well mannered boy who was surrendered due to his family's child becoming allergic to him. This sweet boy has lived with young children (including infants) and is a gentleman around other dogs. His sweet disposition and mild mannered temperament would make him a great fit for a family with youngsters. He does have a prey drive and his owners told us he has caught squirrels and mice, so no little furry creatures for him. Jacinto is good with other dogs and just an all around easy going guy. Check back while we learn more about this wonderful gentleman.
Foster Update - 1/9/21
Jacinto is a strong but low/medium energy, calm, sweet, mellow guy. He's a little overweight so he's on a diet right now. He's living with his four adopted sisters and enjoying their company. He has met several of our neighborhood dogs without issue. He has demonstrated his independence so he would probably do well in a home with or without other dogs. He's highly food motivated but has not shown any food aggression or resource guarding and he takes his treats gently. He is an experienced counter surfer so his family will need to be vigilant. He's housebroken and will let you know when he has to go potty. He has no Separation Anxiety and can be trusted when left alone. He sleeps through the night. He loves going for walks and rides great in the car. He's not a barker nor a door dasher. He sheds very little. He has exhibited some prey drive when encountering squirrels, rabbits, and coyotes thus cats are not recommended. He's good on a leash but does pull occasionally. Jacinto was raised with young/infant children and so will make a great family/companion dog.
