Here we are 6 months in and Jersey is still waiting. He is such the studly guy and totally loveable. There was a short period of time when he was able to be in a foster home, but found his way back to the shelter. He has been worked into play groups to see how he meshes with other dogs. This is what was noted after his first inital playgroup:
Jersey was an interesting dog. Played well with Abel, rough but good bite inhibition with play. However, the energy level of Starbucks set off Jersey. He was lungy and quickly escalated play to inappropriate behavior. Once apart he calmed and was attentive to touching and interaction with me, soft eyes etc.. I think he'd be best in a home with a medium energy dog. We need to determine if he's reacts to a certain look of dog or energy level. Again, Abel and him played and got along great. Starbucks kept wanting to play and run from Jersey. We will try more dogs with Jersey.
Today we introduced Jersey into a different playgroup to see how he would be with some different energy. It was pretty positive and again we were able to see just how great Jersey is.
