Ummmm.....actually I am ashamed to say, he is a freaking lazy slug. Seriously, food and sleep that is all he wants. He does play with Angel some, and my son loves to get him going. But he is not your typical JR. I have told the story before, but I will mention it again. He was my crackhead neighbors dog and they had him tied to a tree for the first 18 months of his life. Usually with no shelter, food or water. It is a long story, but I ended up with him. Yea for me. He is the sweetest, most loving dog I have ever seen. I guess because of his start in life, he just wants a comfortable place to sleep and something good to eat on a regular basis. So based on this information I don't think he is your typical JR. I too have heard the "regular" ones are full of energy, but given a nice place to run and work off that energy, I think that it would be great for you to have one. They are very, very smart and very easy to train. I would look at a rescue shelter for one if I was going to get one though. There are so many that need good homes. Good luck. p.s. sorry for hijack AL.
