A volunteer writes: I am so glad I did not read Jay's owner's comments before taking him out for a stroll.. I sought our staff's impressions of him and trusted my own judgment. Jay was good to go in my book...Jay was immediately ready when I opened his kennel door. I leashed him without fuss and off we went for a walk. Jay appears to be housetrained as related to us by his former master. He marks his territory a little. He heels and can sit on command. It is hard to believe that Jay is 12 years of age. He is peppy, active, in mint shape physically and so well groomed. His eyes are mighty lively. He wears a flawless latte and cream coat and a thick tail that he waves happily on our walk. Jay was clearly content to be with me, a perfect stranger and had a great lap time before to end our session together. Jay did not mind another volunteer coming to say high to us and petting him....I carried him in my arms, kissed him on the head... Jay seemed to like it...Jay was owned his whole life by the same owners. It might be that older age and family changes affected Jay in a negative way and what he very well needs right now is a change too; a calmer life to spend his golden years, labeled this time by his new owner as a good little dog.
