I'm ready for my new family!


I'm Available

One of the smartest dogs I ever met! Plus, he is funny! Look into his eyes and you just know that he is wise beyond his years. Jason can be feisty with other dogs but when he gets along, he is a riot. Loves the water and toys, and is food motivated. Really, really, really smart so training will be a snap. With this guy’s intelligence he could master agility or any skill easily. Jason can be stubborn so he needs strong leadership or he will take advantage of his person; but even if he does, he is such a character he can be easily forgiven. Jason is a healthy and handsome guy who wants to be emotionally connected with a person. He’s been going on hikes, away from the rescue shelter, with volunteers and is a great hiker. He also loves going in water, does so every chance he gets. Jason would be a perfect companion for someone who likes outdoor adventures. Jason has had a couple failed greets with some dogs, conversely, he also gets along with plenty of dogs and shares a kennel with another dog. However, because of his strength he should be monitored closely while meeting other dogs to ensure compatibility. Cortez Rescue recommends Jason be adopted by an experienced dog handler who can effectively continue his obedience training and safely support him in navigating through the world. Here is a comment from a volunteer who has hiked with Jason and done some obedience training with him, "I LOVE this guy! He looks up to me for direction and guidance and I know he wants to do the right thing but has likely had very little people companionship and direction in his life up until now. The right person will be lucky to have this boy in their life. If his adopter continues his leash and obedience training and allows for plenty of exercise, they will be rewarded with a loyal and wonderful friend." Temperament: Outgoing/fun/energetic Resource Guard, Prey Drive, Separation Anxiety: None observed.

Before leaving Cortez Rescue, Jason will be given a full medical assessment to insure he remains in optimum health. He currently lives in Baja near Cabo San Lucas.
