Jerry's Story

Mirror, mirror on the wall who is the cutest puppy of them all?  No need for a magic mirror to figure this one out.  It’s Jerry!  From that little smile to the tiny pink dot on his nose, this boy has cute all wrapped up!  It certainly doesn’t stop at cute with this guy!  Jerry is a super affectionate pup who loves curling up with his human friends!  This gorgeous boy is also a huge fan of head scratches and belly rubs!  He’d happily spend all day on the couch next you to make sure he gets enough.  Squeaky toys?  Jerry says yes please!  He’d love a huge pile to call his own so he could chew on them all day!   He says no thanks to any apples from evil queens, but he will take all the delicious doggy treats he can get!

Jerry doesn’t need a kiss from a princess to wake from any spell, but he is looking for an experienced owner who is willing to commit to giving this boy the training he needs.  He is still a young fellow who could use some help learning to mind his manners and blossom into a gentleman!  Since he is a big boy and still just a pup, he is also looking for an adults-only home without any children coming in and out as he can be a bit much for them.  Jerry also has been rough and rowdy around other dogs, so he would love to find a home where he can soak up all the love and affection as the only pet!  This sweetheart needs a confident and firm owner who can guide him down the road to becoming the prince of a pup he was always meant to be.  Think you can bring the perfect happy ending to this Jerry’s fairytale?  Stop by and meet Jerry today!  He promises to smile for you!
