Pet of the Week: JD

By Madison Bendistis

Meet JD, a three-and-a-half-year-old Pitbull available for adoption at the Humane Society of Kent County.
“The first thing that catches your eye about JD is his looks,” Kennel Technician JP Hooker, said. “He has a beautiful blue and white coat and he is tall, long, and lean.”
JD has large, perky ears and a constant smile on his face.
In addition to being handsome, JD is very playful and affectionate. JD’s previous owner did not provide him with the attention that he deserves, but JD does not let this dampen his spirits.
“After living tied up with not much in the way of care or love, JD is ready to live the life he deserves, and it shows,” Hooker said.
JD has become a staff favorite because of his energy and kindness.
“JD is always happy and he is pleasant to walk on a leash…. [He is] housebroken and he always minds his manners in his kennel,” Hooker said.
Not only is JD a favorite with the staff, but he has also made many friends from Washington College. The brothers of Phi Delta Theta and Kappa Sigma have recently kept JD company while completing their service hours at the Humane Society.
“JD has spent time with some of the fraternities from WC, and he had a lot of fun playing with them,” Hooker said.
It is no wonder the staff selected this playful pup to spend time with the fraternities of WC. JD loves to run around, and he could play fetch for hours.
“Those long legs love to gallop after a ball and retrieve it,” Hooker said. JD has a muscular build and would be the perfect fit for someone looking for an exercising companion.
Potential adopters do not need to worry about any adoption restrictions with this dog.
“JD would be easily incorporated into most families,” Hooker said. “He has been dog- friendly at the shelter and, from what we have seen, he doesn’t seem to mind cats.”
Although JD is playful and strong, he is also gentle and kind, so he would likely do well with children.
If anyone in the Chestertown community, WC faculty and staff members, or even students with families are interested in rescuing JD, please contact the Humane Society of Kent County at 410-778-3648 or by emailing
