Prefers no cats

Jarvis has a special talent - he is not only friendly and fun for people, but he also is great at helping shy dogs come out of their shells. Energetic and playful, he's a great 'adventure' dog. He also settles nicely and is a great cuddle buddy. Although Jarvis does well with all dogs, he can't live with cats because he has shown aggression toward them in the past. Because Jarvis will jump fences, he must be kept safe and secure. Jarvis was born in 2012. He's learning lots of new skills at the Sanctuary, including walking on a loose leash, waiting for his meals and crate training. He's also learning basic training cues such as 'sit,' 'down' and 'paw.' And if you're looking for a fun, friendly and energetic dog, Jarvis may be your perfect match.
