10/1: weight is 64 lbs
Jason has completed his Training School and this is a note from his trainer: "Jason is a sports dog by nature; any challenge that comes his way is not a challenge for him. He loves to play with balls and to do agility circuits. He responds to game stimuli when training him. He is a very obedient dog and is focused on tasks. A very affectionate dog with a protective instinct if given love properly. The ideal for him is a home where he is the only pet and his people are active."
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 does not like when males try to dominant him, that could start a fight but when he gets along, he is a riot. Loves the water and toys, and is food motivated. Really, really, really smart so training was a snap for him. With this guy’s intelligence he could master agility or any skill easily. Jason can be stubborn so he needs strong leadership but that has lessened since training & fostering. 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 gets along with plenty of dogs and shares his foster home now with a big pittie girl that he gets along with like she's his girlfriend. 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 has 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." Jason graduated Oct 10th as a star student, the head trainer said he would adopt him if he didn't have his full pack already.
Temperament: Outgoing/fun/energetic, Prey Drive.

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.
