Jack is up for adoption. He is a black Lab mix around 1yrs old, neutered male, current on all his shots. Jack came in as stray and has been at the shelter since December.
This handsome boy has it all ---the BIGGEST smile that flips a bad day upside down, floppy ears that could win a contest, and a personality that draws a crowd! Jack is a lab mix who is just a little over one year old, 60 pounds, housebroken, crate-trained (loves his crate during naps and bed time!) neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, microchipped, and on heartworm preventatives.
In addition to his adorableness, Jack has a wonderful temperament. He loves to show off his sit, shake, high five, and down skills. He is very food motivated and will learn new tricks quickly. This brainy stud-muffin is a 60 pound love bug that shows his love and affection by giving you LOTS and LOTS of kisses. Jack has a great balance of relax time and puppy energy. When he has his short bursts of puppy energy his goofy and silly antics provide free entertainment! Jack will make you laugh every single day! His love for 2 and 4 legged creatures gets him excited, very excited! Did we mention he loves everyone and everything we have introduced to him? His excitement level is our “work in progress/training item”. He is learning that calm greetings help him make friends more quickly. Jack currently lives with two cats who still believe he is a very scary monster. Their problem not his! He respects their space and lives harmoniously among his feline foster siblings.
Have we mentioned his love for water and car rides yet? Does this boy LOVE water! He would be the happiest pup on earth if his forever home had a pool and/or could join his family on boating/lake days. His foster parents have a kiddy pool in the back yard and bring him to the lake for fun swimming sessions. Boy oh boy Jack is a road trip/car ride enthusiast. He loves to go wherever you go…………the sights, the smells, the sounds. That smile of his is the BIGGEST in the car or in the water!
For those of you that have followed Jack’s story and have donated to his YOUCARING fund, you are familiar with his background. Jack has bilateral elbow and hip dysplasia. He is one tough pup. What does this mean for his future forever family? This would mean his family would need to continue his managed care plan. Jack is on a daily anti-inflammatory medicine and a joint health supplement. He is also on a low impact exercise routine. How great is it that Jack LOVES water? Water therapy and swimming is such a great low impact activity. Jack thinks its all fun and games but little does he know it’s a great way for him to exercise….a win win!
Some of Jack’s favorite pastimes:
Finding and Chomping on Sticks
Chewing on a delicious Elk Antler
Meeting new people and making new fur friends
Tug and Fetch
