Jynxie is 6 years old and weighs about 70 lbs. He is a Catahoula mix and we think that he has a bit of Boxer in him… the rest is a mystery. He has a striking white stripe down his back that makes him look quite dapper :-) He’s not hyper, but he does still need a fair bit of running every day to spend his energy. In our fenced yard he would run and play chase games with the other dogs every chance he got. He loves all people and is very friendly and goofy. He is very affectionate and loves to lean on us, and he also thinks he should be a lap dog. He has agreed to compromise by just putting his head on our knees and he loves to spend part of the evening looking lovingly into our eyes and getting his ears and forehead properly mushed up :-)
Jynxie would do best in a home with another dog - he has lived with numerous foster dogs and loved them all. He also lived with cats in his previous home. He is an extremely sweet and good boy. He wants to please and is food motivated. He learns easily with positive methods, is house trained and trustworthy loose in the house while his humans are gone (with some minor dog proofing). He loves to play with the spray of a garden hose; loves squeaky toys, rawhides, bones, and getting food out of food dispensing toys like Kongs. He loves to go in the car, but it sometimes makes him drool so we limited food when we knew we’d have a good drive ahead of us.
Jynxie would love a home where he could play with his human and doggie family in a fenced backyard, go for walks, maybe to a fenced dog park every now and then. He would also be a natural companion for a moderate jogger or cyclist, and would probably love things like skijoring – he adores being outside and loves winter and snow.
