Meet J.J.

Add to favourites

Looking for the biggest lapdog in town? Meet JJ! JJ is an 9-month-old goofball who looks like a mix between a Rottweiler and a Great Dane, but whatever his breed he is one big boy! JJ had a hard start to life, and was repeatedly attacked by an older dog on the property that he came from. Despite what he’s gone through, JJ continues to be a happy, curious, and affectionate dog.

Due to his previous circumstances, JJ didn’t really have a chance to learn all of the basics while he was still a little guy. While here at the shelter he has made great progress with his leash manners and obedience, and potty training is coming along nicely! His forever home will need to keep working with him on his puppy basics, but this big boy loves treats and is eager to please!Despite his large size, JJ loves to lay down and snuggle with his favorite people, and will happily flop into your lap for head scritches and belly rubs.

JJ is looking for a patient family that can teach him how to “dog” and build his confidence. He would love a safe outdoor space where he can run around off-leash. He is especially nervous when there is a lot of hustle and bustle on walks, so a quiet area would be ideal. Due to his size, he may not be well-suited for apartments, and may be a little too boisterous to share a home with small children. He also seems very interested in meeting other dogs, so he may be successful in a home with a calm, confident canine companion.

If you are ready to let this gentle giant into your home (and heart!), submit an application on the BCSPCA website today!
