|9/4/12 - Jordan is doing very well and is just a great dog with some quirks. He is good with other dogs that are submissive and is good with the cat. He does like to always be near you when you are home and is like a big puppy by following you around. I am home most of the time, but have found he has some separation anxiety when left alone, even if other dogs are there. I have a dog door to a fenced yard and the neighbor says he will bark for hours outside until I get back home. He does get into a little bit of trouble in the house too if I leave things in his reach (ex: remote, eyeglasses, etc), but now I pick-up before I go and he is okay. I have not crated him since the first night he came here as he barked and I wanted sleep, so he won that battle. LOL
Jordanís ideal home will be someone that is home more often (retired, stay at home, work at home, work opposite shifts, etc) and that lives in a more rural neighborhood as his barking when you leave will not be appreciated by the neighbors. He would be great with all people/kids and cats and if you had no other dogs he would be happy, or one submissive one would be good too. Any more dogs that this will take a lot of work to integrate him into your pack and we hate to see Jordy come back for not taking the time or being able to make it work. We just want his next home to be his LAST. Do you fit Jordyís needs? Heís packed and ready to go!
06/06/12 - Jordan is still doing great but wonders where his new home is. He is a good boy and still has a little puppy in him. He can be mischievous too, likes to move my shoes around the house. Makes it hard to get ready to go out when you canít find that other shoe. Maybe thatís why Jordy does it?! lol He is also a good security system as he will bark if he thinks those crazy neighbors get too close-he makes sure they know he is around. For this reason he would do best not in another apartment or condo setting.
03/18/12 - Jordy is doing very well. He is a great boy but can be a little stubborn when it comes to listening to me at times. He gets along well with the other dogs now, it took a few weeks for him to adjust to them. He is not big on eating right away, he makes sure to watch his dish so the other dogs donít eat his dinner. He still likes to be curious with my cat..good thing my cat does not mind it. Donít miss out on this nice boy who is still waiting for his forever home.
12/21/11 - Jordan has been here 10 days and is now doing well. The first couple days he and Jupiter, my boxer boy, did not get along. It is a lot better now. Jordan is kind of thin and is just not a big eater. He shows a lot of curiosity toward the cat but no aggression. Jordan is a very nice boy and deserves his forever home soon.
12/12/11 - Jordan has returned to rescue. Unfortunately Jordanís owner came upon bad times and had to move. She was not able to find an apartment that would take dogs over 35 pounds. She was very sad to give him up. More updates soon from his foster home.
12/04/11 - When I first received Jordan, he was aggressive against other animals. Jordan is no longer aggressive against animals. I have trained him to get along with cats. I have a cat name GeeGee and Jordan gets along fine with her. It was a process and I used his crate to train him but he learned to get along with GeeGee. He will try to eat the cat food when you are not watching. It takes him some time to get along with other animals but as soon as he get use to them he is fine. Jordan is sweet and I love him. Jordan is very well train and he is good with children under five. Miss Helen did a good job with Jordan when she had him and I added to his learning and his health is excellent.
08/29/11 - This is Jordan update. Jordan is my big boy. He is doing well. He has been to the doctor for a check up and he is a health dog. He has received a few shots and some blood work. The lab report came back good. I thought Jordan was good with other dogs because he lived with Miss Helen and her dogs. Come to find out Jordan is very aggressive toward other animals. I have to keep him away from other animals. Jordan do love people and love company. He wants to kiss anyone that walks through the door. He is also bored being home alone. I have recieve reports stating he barks well I'm at work. He has separtation anxiety. Maybe he never been lefted totally alone. Other than that Jordan is my big boy.
07/23/11 - For one, I would like to thinks Miss Helen for doing a good job with Jordan. Jordan is a good boy. Our 3hr ride back to the city was long but we made it home. Jordan came into the house and he sniff every room. He viewed the backyard than he went to the bathroom. He acted like this has always been his home. He ate his dinner than we walked the niehgborhood. Jordan wanted to chase the squarrels and every little animal he seen. I said Jordan you are no longer in the country. You are in the city. Once we returned home it seemed like Jordan was missing his freinds and Miss Helen. I took a week off from work to spend time with Jordan and after a couple of day he realize it's just me and Jordan. He did well by himself when I step out of the house for a few hours. I went back to work on saturday and Jordan does very well by himself. He is very well trained and very easy to train. He is also willing to learn as long as you have a treat. He is already rolling over just for a treat.
07/16/11 - Jordan has been adopted!
07/15/11 - Jordan is leaving for his forever home in the morning. His new mom is driving up from New York City, said she would be here around 9:00. Wow, that is a four hour drive. She is taking a week off from work in order to have time for them to get to know each other and to help him get settled in.
06/19/11- Jordan is such a great boy! He has been integrated with the other dogs here and is always busy patrolling the homestead. He takes his job seriously by chasing the birds, rabbits, etc off the land to keep us all "safe" from them. He does not have any separation anxiety, but loves to stick close keeping me company when I am home. We have not had to use the crate lately, but when I did use it he went in and was fine in the plastic type (cannot use wire one-he bends bars). He would just do some barking to voice his displeasure when I left. Jordan will sure show you how smart he is when it comes to dinnertime! He is very good at waiting patiently for dinner and loves coming to bed when it is time. He will even stop hunting the chipmunks when I really insist that it is time. He is so very happy to see anyone, especially kids, that he is a little overwhelming for the little ones. I think that once he is used to being with kids he will be fine. You just have to give him time to settle down. What are you waiting for? Don't miss out on this wonderful boy!
04/24/11 - JORDAN has turned into a model "boy" boxer. He may be 6+ years old, but acts like a teenager. He loves to kiss every face he sees. He likes to chase squirrels, and tries to get at the bird feeders, possibly for a mid morning snack. He sits when asked, and patiently waits for his food. But he does not listen to well when told to stop kissing people, but eventually does settle down with his toys. He is very handsome and energetic. All in all a boxer who would fit in well with an active family.
04/03/11 - Well, Jordan has been at the Doghouse three months. Three long white, snowy months. Difficult for a doggie who does not like snow much. He would be eager to go out until the door opened to a white world. Then, "I really don't want to do this" was loud and clear. I have to admit, I almost agreed with him. Being underweight and having spent quite a while in the shelter also did not do much for his comfort level. But now it is April, the grass has replaced snow, and he has discovered that running with the girls is lots of fun. Feeling better is good. Sleeping upstairs with the gang is now possible. And food is eagerly looked forward to, but no longer something to defend. So a new Boxer boy has emerged and what a love bug. He has good manners, will sit when asked. Of course, he LOVES company and does the customary Boxer wiggle, but settles down eventually. I have used the crate on occasion and he goes into it, even though he would rather not. But I have caught him sleeping in it several times. He is said to be age 7, but if I did not know better I would argue that point. He definitely is young at heart. This doggie is a velcro kind of guy and is hoping for his very own forever home.
03/14/11 - Well finally here is an update for Jordan. Jordan has made tremendous strides during this difficult winter. He was very skinny when he arrived and it has taken some time to put some weight on. He is now a sleek 56 lb, beautiful boxer. His house manners had been misplaced at the shelter, so that has taken a bit of work, but well worth the trouble. Snow and ice have not been a favorite of his, and going outside was done reluctantly. I took him to do a home check about an hour from home this past Sunday and he was an amazing gentleman. I could not believe this was the same dog which came here New Years day. He is a cuddle bug and great kisser. Now that the miserable white stuff is almost gone, walks are a favorite (this was not so before as he would rush back to the door to get inside). The person I was doing the home check for actually took him for a 10 minute run. He was in heaven. So Jordan is ready to find his forever home. He loves cuddling on the couch and long naps, loves people and visitors and playing with toys.
01/02/11 - Jordan has arrived at The Doghouse foster home. Jordan was an excellent car traveler, and slept most of the way. He is very thin and will be visiting the vet on Monday or Tuesday to get checked out. Introductions with the household canines will wait for a couple of days until he settles in. More as we get to know this sweet boy.
01/02/11 - We picked up Jordan from one of the great shelter workers who was nice enough to take him home for a couple of days since we were picking him up on the weekend. The worker said to tell everyone that Jordan loves beds and couches!
He was a great traveler in the car. At first he wanted to inspect the back and front seats but then calmed down when he noticed I had tiny bits of "CHEESE"! He would sit and stare at the bag and then look at me. He eventually laid next to me and if I wasn't paying attention to him, would nudge my leg with his paw. He was such a good boy. You could tell, he just loved to be next to you. When we were waiting to make the switch to the next transport driver, Jordan had some water, went to the bathroom and then just jumped back up into the car as if to say "ok, we can go now". He just sat in the back seat and leaned up against me as we waited. He is very skinny but I am sure Aunt Helen will fatten him up! He is a great, loving dog! I have attached a few pictures of him---Enjoy!
Here is some more info from the shelter we got him from: Jordan was surrendered to us over a month ago with his canine brother after his former owners moved to a place that doesn't allow pets. Jordan is your typical Boxer who loves everyone! He's a lively fellow who enjoys playing and solicting affection. As a matter of fact if you let him, Jordan will soak your face in slobber with as many kisses as he can possibly give you! Goofy boy! Jordan has a habit of smacking his lips together (yep, it's just what it sounds like). It's just something special that separates this silly pooch from the rest. Jordan was recently neutered, is up to date on his shots, and is an all around sweet and affectionate guy!
