Jones is looking for a home 

This picture was taken just as he was coming back from a long walk in the sun. He was thirsty and a bit tired. This is Jones.

He arrived at K9 a few months ago after being found in a barranca by 3 young men. This beautiful boy was very skinny and very nervous and had no idea what was going on. We took him in and discovered he had no chip, so no owner could be contacted. He spent the first few days with us shaking, and would not let anyone get too close. He looked very scared and very confused and it did take him some time to settle in and begin to trust us.
Jones is a handsome boy with a lot of different colouring and he is still quite young. We knew he needed a play mate. We matched him with one our other new arrivals at the time, Grace, but we think Grace was a bit too much for him. Luckily for us, we had 3 other dogs sharing at the time, who welcomed Jones into their little pack. Another male and two females, so Jones became part of their little gang. For those of you, who come to the kennels regularly, you will know that the 3 dogs that Jones shared with, all went to their forever homes, all in 1 week. Scrappy went to Holland, Elmo got adopted here on the island and Chris was out on trial, also here on the island. Jones was left on his own, not really understanding what was going on. 1 day he had 3 friends, and within 3 days, they were all gone.
Where was his new family? Does he not deserve a second chance?
Jones is a very sweet, quiet boy, who does like to play and does get on with a lot of dogs. We were able to quickly match Jones with 2 other dogs in the shelter. Another male and another female. We think they are all in and around the same age.
He loves getting out for long walks and is happy with or without other dogs while walking. He has come out of his shell and loves to get pets and cuddles from us all, and of course, loves to get treats too!
He needs his forever home, and a loving family to welcome him in to their lives.
