Jax Humane Society: Breed Labels


>>Eden: WELCOME BACK TO RIVER CITY LIVE AT THE AVENUES MALL. WELL, WITH A NEW YEAR YOU MAY WANT TO GROW YOUR FAMILY, IN WHICH CASE I SUGGEST YOU DO WHAT OUR FAMILY DID AND VISIT THE JACKSONVILLE HUMANE SOCIETY. AMY AND LINDSEY ARE HERE. WE HAVE INTRODUCTIONS TO MAKE. WE WANT TO TALK ABOUT A FEW THINGS THAT ARE GOING ON AND SOME POLICY CHANGES AS WELL. WHO ARE WE MEETING?>>THIS IS DOLLY.>>Eden: HI DOLLY.>>AND THIS IS ODY.>>Eden: NORMALLY ONE MIGHT SAY TELL US WHAT KIND OF DOG IS THIS, BUT WE HAVE SOMETHING NEW GOING ON AT THE HUMANE SOCIETY, WHICH MAKES PERFECT SENSE.>>WE ARE REMOVING BREED LABELS. WHEN YOU ASK WHAT KIND OF DOG HE IS, I CAN TELL YOU HE IS AN AWESOME DOG. HE IS OLDER AND WILL MAKE A GREAT COMPANION SO THAT WAY YOU DON’T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT THE EXPECTATIONS YOU MIGHT HAVE FOR A SPECIFIC BREEDS AND YOU CAN FOCUS ON THE DOG AS AN INDIVIDUAL.>>Eden: WE TALKED ABOUT THIS BEFORE WE WENT LIVE AND YOU SAID FRANKLY, IT IS A GUESS ANYWAY. AND AMY SAID FOR ALL WE KNOW ODY IS PART GOAT. WE KNOW THAT IS NOT TRUE — I’M GOING TO NAME HIM. HE IS A WAGGY TAIL WET TONGUE. AND DOLLY IS LEANING ON ME SO SHE IS A LEANER. WHY DO YOU THINK THAT THIS IS SO IMPORTANT? IS THERE KIND OF A JUDGEYNESS THAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU THINK YOU ARE GETTING A CERTAIN BREED?>>I BELIEVE THERE IS JUDGMENT EITHER WAY. THERE ARE CERTAIN BREEDS THAT PEOPLE BELIEVE ARE AMAZING WITH KIDS AND GREAT WITH PEOPLE AND THEN OTHER BREEDS THAT PEOPLE HAVE THESE PRE-CONCEIVED NOTIONS THAT AREN’T SO POSITIVE. THIS WAY IT TAKES AWAY FROM ALL THAT AND YOU GET TO KNO EACH DOG INDIVIDUALLY.>>Eden: SOPHIE, WHO IS FROM THE HUMANE SOCIETY, SHE — WHEN WE FIRST SAW HER THEY SAID OKAY, ROTTWEILER. THAT WAS A GUESS. AND MAYBE SOME LAB WE KIND OF WERE A LITTLE WORRIED TO TELL ANYBODY THERE WAS ROTTWEILER IN THERE. WHICH BY THE WAY WE NOW KNOW THAT MEANS SHE IS EXTREMELY SMART AND A GREAT DOG, BUT PEOPLE DO MAKE A JUDGMENT BASED ON A BREED. WHAT IS HAPPENING WITH THE HUMANE SOCIETY RIGHT NOW?>>WE HAVE MUTT MARCH. MOST OF OUR DOGS ARE MOSTLY GREAT MIXES. MUTT MARCH IS A GREAT EVENT IN MARCH. ODY WANTS TO GO ALREADY.>>Eden: I GET IT, ODY.>>IT IS A FUN WALK, A FAMILY FESTIVAL DOWNTOWN AT THE LANDING. IT IS GREAT FOR ANY DOG LOVING FAMILY. WE’LL HAVE VENDORS AND FOOD AND FUN. YOU CAN SIGN UP ON JAXHUMAN.ORG AND GET ALL THE INFORMATION THERE.>>WE’LL PUT ALL THE INFO ON OUR WEBSITE. SHE LEANS, AND SO DOES SOPHIE. THAT MEANS THAT DOG IS LOYAL.>>YES, YES. SHE IS SO AFFECTIONATE. SHE LOVES DOGS, PEOPLE, EVERYONE SHE MEETS.>>Eden: BOTH THESE DOGS ARE LOOKING FOR FOREVER HOMES, CORRECT? I KNOW FOR ODY, HE IS 11 YEARS OLD BUT STILL A LOT OF LOVE TO GIVE.>>LOTS OF LOVE TO GIVE. OLDER DOGS ARE GREAT BECAUSE LIKE ME, THEY JUST LIKE TO NAP A LOT. IF THAT IS YOUR THING ODY WOULD BE A GREAT COMPANION.>>Eden: LOOK HOW WELL THEY GET ALONG. BOTH OF THESE WILL VERY LIKELY FIT INTO THE FAMILY WITH OTHER DOGS. DOLLLY AND ODY, I WOULD LIKE NOTHING MORE THAN FOR THE NEXT TIME WE SEE AMY AND LINDSEY, TO FIND OUT YOU HAVE BRAND NEW HOMES. MAYBE THAT IS YOU. YOU CAN REACH OUT THROUGH RiverCityLiveTV.com.
