This handsome boy is Jepetto, a two year old Shepherd mix who has been waiting a long time to find his forever home.

Jepetto is a very affectionate dog who really enjoys getting attention from humans. He would to best as an only dog since he is fearful of other dogs and may fight with them if he feels threatened.

Jepetto is very smart and enjoys learning new things. He likes to spend time chewing on Nylabones, and he has a blast playing with, and ultimately destroying, stuffed animals.

Jepetto will need to be adopted by a dog experienced person as he will need someone dedicated and patient to help him overcome some undesired behaviors. Jepetto seems to never have learned as a puppy that playing should not involve nipping. He is not at all aggressive; however he will nip at your clothes when he gets excited, and often he gets the skin underneath as well. When Jepetto is calm, he is a big snuggler and loves nothing more than being cuddled.

If you are looking for a very loving canine and have the patience to teach him how to play appropriately, please consider adopting Jepetto. This loving boy really deserves a family of his own to love. Please stop by the SPCA to visit with Jepetto or any of the other wonderful dogs and cats available for adoption, and help a deserving animal find their furever home.

The SPCA Of Hancock County is located on Rte. 3 in Trenton.
