Jonah and his black counterpart came in to a California shelter as strays. Knowing our policy of not taking one dog and leaving its partner, we couldn't commit to taking this handsome boy. We heard from our friend, Cathleen at Crossroads, saying she had someone to take the black -- could we take the white? YES!

Shelter Behavior notes: A496095 (black) came in with A496096 (white) and when I had both dogs on a leash, A496095 (black) showed that he is alpha and started to attack A496096 (white). I let go of the leash and A496096 (white) ran off and layed down. He is hesitant at first, a little head shy, but once warmed up to you, he is great. Walks well on leash. AMR

Jonah and Jacob were pulled and made their way to Crossroads this afternoon. According to Cathleen, he's just a big (96 pounds) puppy! We're awaiting arrival pics. Jonah will be making his way to Phoenix around the first week in July.

UPDATE 7/1: Thanks to Joe at Crossroads for some pictures of our newest boy.


UPDATE 7/7: Jonah has arrived in Phoenix. We have received a request from Soldier's Best Friend to meet him, so we're going to make that happen first.

Happy boy arriving in Quartzsite

Safe in Phoenix

We saw no hesitation whatsoever on Jonah's part in meeting any of his transporters today. He was welcoming and happy to see everyone.
