Our Jay Jay is a playful goofball, who just lost her home, when her owners surrendered her to NYCACC. No reason was given, but we find it hard to believe that such a good natured beauty could wind up in the city shelter, at just three years old. Jay Jay was greenlighted to our rescue, through the Deferred Intake Program, so she did not have to spend too much time in that harsh environment.

Jay Jay appears to be a yellow Labrador Retriever. She is a large, stocky dog at 60 pounds, with a lustrous cream colored coat, that is smooth and easy to groom. She is a high energy, active dog who needs sufficient exercise and mental stimulation to engage her working dog instincts.

Jay Jay seems to be a very adaptable girl. She could be the dream dog for an active young family, with older kids. It is reported that Jay Jay lived with kids in her former home, and while she did well, we agree with shelter behavior evaluations that Jay Jay may be spooked by the overzealous attentions of toddlers. Her temperment is outgoing and loving, and she will greet strangers with panache after she has had a few moments to warm up. She would adapt well to a multi-dog home with other well trained dogs, but we have not had her around cats. She doesn't seem to have a prey drive so she could do well, but we would need to introduce appropriately at the adoption meeting. Jay Jay's good nature indicates that she could fit into any type of active lifestyle.

Jay Jay still has a bit of an impish, puppy vibe, even at the age of three, and is fast to adopt a play bow. She needs at least a couple of brisk leash walks daily as well as obedience training to challenge her physically and mentally. She has a natural affinity for the outdoors, so retrieving games like frisbee, go a long way in appeasing her instincts. She would be a great walking or running companion, and has shown tremendous aptitude for training. We have started Jay Jay on a basic obedience program, as well as Canine Good Citizenship training. She has excelled in every aspect, and has become easy to handle on lead. In the hands of motivated Adopters, Jay Jay would be an obedience champ.

Jay Jay has good house manners and is house trained and crate trained, although, adopters must have appropriate expectations, and forgive the occasional accident that may occur as Jay Jay adapts to a new environment. She has been vaccinated for Rabies, and routine vaccinations. She has had the 4dx test, and is negative for heartworm, lyme, earlichia and anaplasmosis. She has been microchipped and dewormed.
