Name: Jet Age:%A0 %A0 Adult (approximately 2 years old) Breed: Rat Terrier Dachshund Mix Sex:%A0 13# Male (neutered per owner) Location:%A0 Columbia County, New York Vet Information: UTD on vaccinations per owner. HW negative (per owner). Owner report: Jet was recently rescued from a shelter and discovered to be blind. Jet has snapped at her other dogs, and so the owner is looking to rehome him. Jet is currently with a temporary foster. Jet is described as an indoor dog with the run of the house. He is said to be house broken and leash trained, nervous and shy. Jet would do best as the only pet in the house as he has shown aggression towards other dogs. Jet is currently being fostered by a vet tech who reports 'He (Jet) is still extremely food aggressive, but only at certain times. Giving him food and treats is very easy, and he's super food motivated. He has tried to bite my partner when she hesitated while giving him a treat, and he did actually bite me when I covered the treats in my pocket to stop him from eating my pocket. He did break skin when he bit me over the treats, but his bites tend to be very light and barely leave a mark. This being said, he's never gone after me or bitten me for a reason that I couldn't understand.' 'I've put him on a front attachment harness and he's doing really well with walking. The only trouble I ever have with him is seeing people or other dogs. He seems to be able to see shadows or outlines, but not specific things in front of him. If he sees someone on a bike or people walking, he will start barking and sometimes snarling.' 'He is very upset by new people being in the house, and usually the best way to introduce him to people is by walking outside with them and giving him treats, then having them give treats when he's comfortable. He's done very well with being crated so far, as long as it's a larger crate. If the crate is on the smaller side, he does try to bite when you put him in and again when you close the door.' 'Overall, he's one of the sweetest dogs I know. He seems to have had an incredibly rough life, and given what we know about him; I'm regularly impressed by his affection. Once you gain his trust he will look to you for guidance and allow you to do most anything. I've even clipped his nails with no reaction from him. He's learning commands for walking on sidewalks and stairs, we've had a few rough tumbles, but he picks things up very quickly. If I had the right home for him, I would take him in a heartbeat, but unfortunately it's just not a good fit any more. I want him to have the best life possible, and I think he would thrive with an experienced and dedicated owner.' Does anyone have room for Jet? **Owner Surrender Disclaimer: These are blind and visually impaired dogs who are living in homes, but their owners can no longer keep them.
