Jerry is an 8-year-old, 10 pound Norfolk Terrier mix. He is a quiet, gentle dog and gets along fine with other dogs. He doesn't have much experience walking on the leash but is making progress. He calmly tolerates being groomed and treated by the vet staff and is learning to understand that humans are also petting him to show him love.
Jerry is looking for the perfect person to show him some kindness and affection and make him part of their "pack." He would love someone patient enough to teach him that the world is a safe place to be! This sweet soul really needs someone who understands that because of his turbulent past, he will never be a terribly outgoing boy and will have to become your friend over time, making gradual progress. He will sometimes approach his foster mama (a display of confidence that has taken time to achieve) and will even lick her hand. He just needs that special someone to be loyal to and trust.
Jerry arrived as a stray that was really in need of medical attention and grooming. He is being treated for skin issues that are responding well to medication. He has re-grown a considerable amount of his coat and is now looking very handsome!
Jerry came to POMDR from San Jose Animal Services after being picked up as a stray.
