Zack and Jim’s Waco 100 pet of the Week is--Jupiter!
Jupiter is an exceptional canine who has a calm, welcoming demeaner. This head turner is a squishy, blue and white rock star. (He has a patch on his side is shaped into a blue heart!)
The neighbors are sure to stop and stare when this leash trained hunk takes an autumn stroll. He’s that handsome! But this incredible boy isn’t just about the looks!
He’s had training and knows basic commands, plus he’s opened to learning more. Jupiter is extremely loving and affectionate. He likes to give hugs and kisses. His personality oozes sweetness. You’ll never see this boy without a big smile!
He has impeccable manners. He’s gentle in every aspect, including when accepting treats. Jupiter is a bit of an explorer, and he’s interested in what’s going on around him.
Jupiter is as close to perfect as a dog can get. The only thing that isn’t perfect in his life, is he doesn’t have a home to call his own. Unfortunately, he’s also number 1 on the urgent list, which is curious why this fantastic pooch keeps getting by-passed.
With the shelter having so many incoming intakes, Jupiter is in grave danger and needs an adopter or foster ASAP.
Jupiter is a 3-year-old, male, bull terrier mix. He’s been at the shelter since 7/9/18. His adoption has been sponsored, meaning he is free to adopt to an approved adopter.
So, you’ve decided you want to adopt Jupiter or maybe another urgent. You’re wondering what is the adoption process?
It’s fairly simple. You can go to the Humane Society’s website and fill out an adoption application, or you can apply onsite.
Either way, you are required to go to the shelter. You can freely wander through the kennels and view the animals. Once you’ve found “the one”, ask a staff member or volunteer to bring the dog to the playpen.
(note: not all dogs are friendly toward other dogs. If you already have a dog, you’re allowed to bring it for a controlled meet and greet or you may ask the staff to dog test for you)
If it is a good fit, then you take the kennel card inside, and speak to an adoption coordinator. After the conversation, you’re approved, and if the dog has been spayed or neutered, you may take it home that day. If it needs to be fixed, they’ll set a surgery date and you can pick it up after the pet is fixed. See? Easy. Go meet Jupiter and save his life!
