So I guess this week of September didn't get the memo that inventory usually continues its decent into the Winter months, since all products decided to add volume this week! Sometimes there's a bit of an "ebb and flow" as we settle into the slower time of the market year, so I have no doubts that this is one of those "off shot" kind of weeks. New listing additions continue to report lower week over week, and now that beginning of school week has ended, stats are coming around to their normal selves. Activity has also improved this week, although, it didn't quite get the report that last year did, which is a little bit unsettling. Again, the ebb and flow of our unpredictable market comes and goes, is both predictable and not so, but it is guaranteed to keep you guessing which way things will go. You'll have to stay tuned to find out, and to keep a pulse on the market here in Halifax. Thanks for stopping by!
Jojo is a very sweet and fun loving fella. He would be ideal in an active home where someone can put in the time to house train him and take him on adventures to the parks, hiking, or possibly swimming!
He has spent most of his life living outdoors and would love to learn how warm and cozy a home can be. With this though he will need someone understanding that will help teach him how to be an indoor doggy.
A home with children 16 years of age or older is best for Jojo as he does have a good energy level and is still learning to keep his four feet on the ground.
To help his new family and him with adjusting to this new lifestyle obedience is mandatory upon adoption.
If you would like to see this fella please stop into our shelter to meet him and take him out for a nice stroll.
This "cuddly companion" is available through the Dartmouth SPCA, a non profit rescue organization from Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. More info about him, other adoptable's looking for their furever home, and ways to help or donate can be found by clicking HERE
