  Meet Jack!

Jack is approximately 12 months old now. He was rescued from Animal Services as a youngster. He was skinny, knew no boundaries, acted as if he had never been in a house, and had no communication skills.

His foster mom taught him some basic obedience and he stands on the grooming table like a well-trained show dog. He will tolerate crating for short periods and for dinner. He loves his foster dad and loves to snuggle in the lazy boy with him, but can play rough with both humans and other dogs. He is almost fully housebroken, but would suggest a bellyband until he is comfortable in his new environment.

We would not recommend young children for Jack since he is so active and robust. He would be thrilled to have a dog playmate. Jack cannot be left out in the yard alone, as he is an escape artist. The new owners MUST have a secure fence or yard and be on line at all times!!! He cannot be left in the yard alone. Jack would be best in a home that has an active lifestyle. Jack would love to go for long walks or runs every day....but with a leash on!!

Sounds like a lot of negativity about Jack, but to the right home you will overlook the challenges and see what a sweet boy he really is. When his day of activity is over he just wants a warm body to snuggle up to. A little ear rub will not hurt.

Remember he is still a young buck and will calm down with age. He is smart and with plenty of love and attention he will be the love of your life.

Jack is neutered and heartworm negative. He is up to date on vaccinations, and microchipped.

Here is a cute video of Jack.

Jack is being fostered in the Sacramento, CA area.

If you are interested in adoption please fill out our Adoption Application. If you would like more information, please contact Crystal at cnratliff@gmail.com.

Keep in mind that we prefer to place dogs within driving distance of where they are being fostered. If someone from outside the local area is approved for adoption, they must be willing to fly in to get the dog and that can only happen if the dog is stable enough to travel in the cabin with the passenger.
