Jett is the life of the party, and he gets along well with other dogs. He's been vaccinated and neutered. He's mastered his house-training etiquette.

From Jett's current caretaker:

Jett is such a loving, mellow boy. He is not rowdy and he has a gentle old-soul personality for being only around a year old. He is a 20-pound love bug who will lay with you on the couch or in the bed. He just wants to follow you around the house. He greets everyone who comes over with a wagging tail, just wanting to be loved on. He will make someone a great new addition.
