Status: Up for Adoption
Breed: Pointer mix
Age: 6 years and 11 months
Jango is, at heart, a wonderful dog: smart, sensitive, playful, affectionate, and mysteriously overlooked at FOHA for years. Alas, the stress of shelter life has taken a bit of a toll on him, making Jango a little skittish about unexpected stimuli and wary sometimes of new people. Nonetheless, with people he's familiar with, Jango remains a gentle, attentive boy who knows “Sit,” takes treats gently, and enjoys quiet story time in his FOHA Village house.
Though he can be selective about his canine company, Jango has often done fine with other dogs after a careful introduction. That said, he would probably prefer to be the only dog in the home so he can focus all his attention on bonding with his people. He is deeply loyal and can be protective of his home and family, so caution should be used in introducing him to strangers there. Overall, Jango very much appreciates stability and would love a home without a lot of visitors and activity where he could get plenty of exercise and relax completely into to the loyal, loving, sensitive dog he fundamentally is. In such an environment, Jango would likely be an extraordinary companion for a truly fortunate family/adopter.
Jango would do best in a home with an experienced owner and as an only dog.
This dog can only be adopted within the Washington D.C. metro area.
Jango is sponsored by Rob and Tracy Mock.
