Our Harlequin Beauty, Jupiter, is a real heartbreaker, who is as charasmatic as a dog can be. This pretty lady was surrendered to NYCACC, along with her housemate, when their owner became gravely ill. Just five years old, Jupiter fell into the hard knock life, as she experienced the seamier side of the rescue process.

Jupiter had been raised with love, and was well-socialized when tragedy struck, so she seemed to fare pretty well in the chaotic shelter environment. She adapted well to the drastic lifestyle change, but she was quick to catch the shelter kennel cough. We were asked to take her into our Rescue to restore her health and vitality. Now she has completely healed, has been spayed, and she's ready to live her life in the lap of luxury with folks who will spoil her rotten!

Jupiter truly has one of the most lovely, gentle Bully Breed temperaments that we have ever seen. She appears to be a Harlequin Staffordshire Terrier, and embodies the best qualities of this noble breed. She has a strong, muscular frame, and is at her ideal weight of 50 pounds. She has a striking "Harlequin" black and white color patern that gives her a whimsical look.

Despite her formidable appearance, Jupiter has a playful spirit. She could join any kind of home: she fits in anywhere, and has easily adapted to our wild and crazy foster home. Jupiter has great pack manners and gets along with all kinds of other dogs, even ones that try her patience. We surmise that she may even be good with cats.

Jupiter has alot love to share with an openhearted family. Her energy level is moderate, and she doesn't require the excessive amounts of energy that most Bullies do. She is extremely gentle, and walks well on lead. She doesn't jump up on folks, and is very gentle with older children. Jupiter is happy to relax with her person, and this makes her a good choice for laid back folks, seniors, apartment dwellers, or first time Bully owners.

Jupiter is extremely food motivated, and an excellent candidate for positive reinforcement obedience training. She loves her obedience workouts, and has mastered all of her commands. While she is an excellent student, Jupiter is not above throwing herself at the ground, and begging for belly rubs right in the middle of a training session. Jupiter loves people and constantly craves human attention.

Jupiter has good house manners and is house trained and crate trained. Adopters should expect to troubleshoot the occasional accident that will inevitably occur during her transition to a new home. She is in excellent health, and is at an ideal lean body weight of 50 pounds. She is spayed, and has had routine vaccinations. She has had the 4dx test, and is negative for heartworm, lyme, earlichia and anaplasmosis. She has been dewormed, and microchipped.
