Other Info: November 7, 2017 - UPDATE: AJ has settled in well now. We found from the vet that he is more like 10 than 8. He is doing well on his housetraining - no accidents in a week. He is doing much better with the resident dog now that he has been here a couple of weeks. He ignores the cats and they feel safe around him. AJ loves his walks but he still loves to go for a good run. He needs more weight but is eating well now that we got rid of the bad teeth. He lives for human contact and thinks he would make a great lap dog. AJ is very new to rescue. He is crate trained and we are working on his house training (and so far he's doing great!). He is good on leash and knows come and sit. AJ is okay with the resident dog as long as there are no toys around. He is very possessive of his toys and so needs to be the only dog or with a dog that has NO interest in any toys. He seems to be ignoring the cats but I want to give him a bit more time before I say he is good with cats. He is a very fun dog to walk with as he enjoys every minute of it. He can go off leash and will come back every time you ask him to. He doesn't seem to have much prey drive and has only given a mild glance at squirrels or geese. He pays no attention to other dogs barking at him while walking. AJ does NOT like to be picked up - he will try to bite you if you pick him up. Other than that, he's a love. He is very healthy and will easily jump into an SUV. He loves to run and play - he was kenneled in an outside kennel for years and so he is so happy to be able to run on the grass and roll in it. AJ is a cool dog if you would like a well mannered and happy companion. Also refer to our Facebook page (North Central Chesapeake Bay Retriever Relief & Rescue) for additional information and pictures of AJ.
