This is Jack! Jack is the resident shelter goofball. He loves many things including; treats, belly rubs, water bottle and squeaky toys, snuffle mats and long walks. He is looking for a home that is looking to provide him with a safe and loving environment to thrive in. This boy is as active as he is adorable and needs someone ready to match his activity level. With all his energy Jack is a big baby and wants love very badly he is just unsure on how to ask for it. Jack is not suited for a first time dog owner but rather someone with lots of dog experience. We have been working with him to learn good manners so that he can fit into his new life. Jack will need to be an only pet in a child free home as he is a very excitable guy and does not know his own strength. Jack would do better in a house rather than an apartment as he tends to bark and since he is a big boy that can disturb neighbors in an apartment building. He would also love a backyard where he can run and play to get lots of his energy out. Jack will need ongoing training to help with his obedience and his rowdy behavior. Once settled in Jack would be a lovely dog to take on hikes and runs but also to have naps on the couch or sunbathe with. Underneath all the commotion is a very sweet dog who is trying very hard to overcome a tough past. If you have the time and dedication to help Jack find his way to a better life please fill out an application through the SPCA website!
