Meet Jojo! This lil’ tater wedge came to us from our friends at local animal control after he was found with 6 other dogs in a UHaul back in January. PittieLove Rescue placed 2 other dogs from this situation last winter (Banana and Eddie), but this poor guy has been in a kennel for the better part of this year waiting for his chance. Jojo is a compact 50-lbs and looks like a baby russet potato. He has just the right amount of seasoning…a little spice kickin’ with his sweet personality.

Jojo is outgoing and needy all at the same time! He is a pro at making sure he maintains physical contact by touching or leaning into his human throughout the day and loves to be included in E.V.E.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G.! This plus-size and flavorful French Fry loves running on a long line in open spaces, dismantling stuffy toys with gusto, lick mats and enrichment toys, going on sniffaris, and every treat he’s ever been offered, ever.

Jojo is an active and friendly and super happy guy who gets excited anytime any person comes through the door. And when Jojo gets excited, he snorts like a piglet. Oh, and did we mention he loves to cuddle? When he settles, Jojo has a cute snore to let you know just how relaxed he’s actually feeling. He reminds us of Scrappy Doo with those spectacular ears and is a perfect pint-sized pup…a really happy and waggy boy who lives his life to love people. Jojo settles nicely while his foster parents WFH, laying on his dog bed or in his crate or on the couch chillin’ like Bob Dylan. But if they’re on the move, he follows them wherever they go to make sure he doesn’t miss out on anything important. He loves, loves, loves to sniff around, and loves it when his foster family hides treats so he can sniff them out.

We’re unsure that Jojo has ever lived in a home in the traditional sense, but he sure is figuring it out fast! He gets scared by loud sounds like smoke detector beeping or sirens outside and will shake and whine. He alternates his days between sleeping and being alert and hasn’t experienced a lot of middle ground, but we think that will come with settling more and more into family life. We think Jojo’s perfect home would have a little space to run around and a family that will take time to patiently teach him all that life has to offer as he continues to acclimate to being part of a family. Jojo is well on his way to learning what a real home feels like with his wonderful foster family, but he will need even more time and space to really decompress surrounded by love and safety. Jojo really likes other dogs, but can get super excited around canine friends and can come on a bit strong for most other pups, something that would require management in a home. And he has definitely said no thanks to kitties and other small critters. Because of this, we feel Jojo would thrive as the only pet in a situation where he could relax and enjoy being the center of attention, and scheduling playdates with equally matched dogs. Due to his age and lack of history, older kids would be best for this perfect baked potato.
