Thank you Kiem and Amelia!!
JoJo is full of complete Joy-Joy! This boy loves to go for romps with volunteers in the park nearby the shelter. He's also happy to zoom around the dog run chasing the ball. He has been attending weekly training classes with a volunteer and he will sit for a treat in a flash and then take it gently from your hand. We know JoJo will thrive with additional training! JoJo looks so cute with the striking white blaze on his face, it will make you smile just to see him! He also has a fuzzy caramel-colored coat which is a pleasure to stroke. This boy loves attention from volunteers and has no problems being handled.
It is likely that Jojo did not have many positive dog-dog interactions prior to coming to the shelter--if he had a chance to socialize with other dogs at all. However, after slow and proper introductions, Jojo has befriended some of the dogs here at the shelter. Jojo has really blossomed in our shelter play groups and it is a joy to see him looking more comfortable and relishing doggie company. In a new home he will benefit from having the same monitored play dates so he can continue to have positive experiences. We truly hope someone will see Jojo's potential and take him under their wing and show him how great the world can be. He's ready to share his doggie love with you.

60/6/60 Adoption Program, Partnering Senior Animals with Senior Friends -- If you are 60 or older and adopt an animal who is 6 or older, you'll get 60% off the adoption fee!
Adoption Criteria (Non Pit Bull Type Breeds):
In order to qualify as an adopter, you must bring proof of home ownership or your rental contract showing you are allowed to have pets before the adoption can be completed. If you're coming to adopt a new family or household pet, please bring your family members or other members of the household with you to the shelter -- including any other dogs in the family. We want to make sure your new dog is a good fit for both 2-leggers and 4-leggers alike.
Additional Adoption Criteria (Pit Bull Type Breeds):
If you're applying to adopt a pit bull type breed, in addition to the standard adoption criteria, your rental contract must specifically state you are allowed to have a put bull type breed dog at your residence; you must be over 25 years of age; and you must pass a home inspection before the adoption can be completed.
As an added bonus, when you adopt a pit bull type breed through BACS, you can attend Bad Rap's Pit Ed training classes for FREE (normal fee $100). These classes are extremely popular and can have a 6 month waiting list. But, when you adopt a pittie from us, you get to skip the wait and start attending classes right away. You won't find this incredible opportunity through any other shelter. You can read more about Bad Rap's Pit Ed on their website: badrap.org/
