About JJ The American Street Dog: Maya has wanted a dog for as long as she can remember. Just when her parents decide to buy her one, her Uncle Jerry finds a homeless puppy that he can’t keep. Although Mom is skeptical about keeping a dog from the street, she agrees to take in the pup and they name him JJ. Before long, JJ warms his way into their hearts, and Maya and her family learn about homeless animals and how they can be a part of the solution to end pet overpopulation.

About JJ Goes to Puppy Class: Maya just adopted her puppy JJ and couldn’t be more excited! JJ is excited too and you know what that means… he’s digging holes in the garden, jumping up on furniture, having an occasional accident in the house and many more puppy-like things! Maya’s mom signs the whole family up for puppy-training class, where they will have fun learning how to keep JJ and those around him happy and safe. Plus the bonding time spent together is priceless!
