He arrived at the Sanctuary in 2008 along with his partner Tyson, when Ibama confiscated all the animals from Circo Le Cirque in Brasília. She lived together with Tyson in a precarious cart of tiny size in the middle of feces and leftover food. At the circus he was still castrated and had all his teeth pulled out. He had a heavy chain around his neck when he was rescued, and when he arrived at Sanctuary he had several scars on his neck. Therefore, he is suspicious and treacherous with people. Despite this, behind all the suffering he has gone through, Jeber is sociable, playful and loves to carry and take care of the toys he gets as an environmental enrichment.
