Meet AJ
AJ is a happy hound. He was rescued from Animal Control, with his companion Mindy. They arrived at our shelter on April 1, 2020.
AJ is a wonderful older dog. He's a seven-year-old hound/shepherd mix. He's a larger dog, but he moves gracefully and calmly so don't let his size fool you. He has beautiful manners. He's calm, sweet and very friendly. He's a lower energy sort of guy and prefers to relax with his people and his best friend Mindy. AJ walks well on a leash and he knows basic commands. AJ is happy to go along to get along. He's just a big love bug who will make for someone's best companion. He's very low-key, but loves to see what Mindy is up to and happily follows her around. AJ and Mindy are a bonded pair and must be adopted together. The way they depend on each other, it's like a seamless ballet. Each dog brings out the best in the other and together they are probably less effort then having one dog, because they complement each other so well. They're recent arrivals and we have yet to test them with other dogs or cats, but will do so for potential adopters. Our guess is they could be house-trained, because they are so polite and smart, but it may take some remedial training since they have been without a home for a little while now.
AJ is exceptional. He seems to be the quintessential family dog. It's crazy to think he and Mindy ended up homeless. We have no idea of their back story, but they are a delightful pair who would make for a great addition to any family willing to open their hearts and home to them.
AJ is neutered, fully vetted and micro-chipped.
