Kim Agricola of the Medfield Animal Shelter describes Jojo as a "very sweet and energetic four-year-old Lab mix."
"She is a typical Lab in that she lives for food and walks," Agricola said. "Her previous owner said she used to share her toast with Jojo every morning and Jojo could smell chicken from across the room."
Jojo weighs 70 pounds but is a bit overweight, so she is getting lots of exercise to help her get in shape for spring. Jojo was adopted when she was one-year-old by grandparents caring full-time for their grandchildren and she lived with them for three years and was a loving dog who adored her young children and was extremely gentle with them.
"Jojo is a wonderful dog but she loves to run and because she has not had any obedience training, when she gets loose she likes to go for jaunts chasing squirrels and having fun and she does not come back," Agricola said. "This caused problems since the kids were not careful about leaving doors open and Jojo escaped a number of times."
Jojo is spayed and current on her vaccines and is ready to be adopted to a family that is willing to take her to basic obedience training. A fenced in yard would be ideal since that would give her a chance to run while staying safe.
"We want her next home to commit to her 100 percent and be her forever home," Agricola said.
