Health Issue(s)

  • None

Temperament

  • Shy and a little untrusting of strangers, but warms up fast.
  • Thrives on affection and attention and can be sneaky about getting it when the mood strikes.
  • High prey and high play drive.
  • Loves to play ball and run around. Also swims but not his first choice of things to do.
  • Very smart and driven by treats, which makes it easy to train him; doing well with sledding.
  • Loves being groomed and allows his nails to be trimmed, although with some hesitation.
  • Has no food or body issues with a trusted person, but will think nothing of quickly swallowing whatever it is Juno has in his mouth.
  • Best walked with a Haltie.
  • Great with other dogs.
  • Having a hard time kicking the habit of coprophagy (eating feces).

Owner Suitability

  • Needs an active outdoors type family.
  • Requires plenty of daily exercise.
  • Would be a wonderful dog with older kids who could match his energy level.
  • NO CATS.
  • A fenced yard is a must for Juno.
  • Has never lived in a house, so house training and dog-proofing will be necessary.
  • Need to be diligent about not leaving things laying around that he can chew.
  • Only positive reinforcement should be used to train and interact with this dog
