Jack has been adopted!
Sponsored by Ilona, Cooper, Scarlett and Alex in loving memory of their grandpa
Introducing Jack! This boy is as close to perfect as a dog could get in his foster moms eyes. He has excellent manners, gives wonderful cuddles ( and kisses too) and also enjoys a good walk. Jack will be a very loyal companion to a lucky family.
Jack was found in Tennessee over a month ago, underweight, missing fur and with a badly injured front leg ( no one really knows that cause of this injury) . It one took one look for Save Me Rescue to decide Jack needed to make the trip to Canada. Within 48 hours of arriving Jack found himself winning hearts at Thornbury Veterinary Hospital where he had his front leg amputated. Jack does not let his missing leg slow him down and is proud of his ability to climb stairs, get up on furniture and get in and out of the car on his own. He loves his walks but his family may need to invest in a tripod friendly harness for him as he can pull (especially if he knows that his meal time is following his walk).
Jack has the most endearing personality. He does not ask for much and he is happy just to spend time near his foster mom. Jack has also won the heart of his foster moms, not so dog social cat. The cat seemed to instantly accept him as a temporary part of her family and coexists with him beautifully, even though most foster dogs never get the honor of meeting this cat. Jack has a very sweet gentle way about him that seems to easily win over new human friends (and nervous cats too).
Jack is a little shy of new people and animals and sometimes needs a few seconds to warm up. He will let out an assertive little bark to let his foster mom know that he is feeling overwhelmed. Jack would be suitable for a family with older children, over the age of 10 . He would also be a wonderful companion to someone that is living alone.
Jack is nervous of new dogs, especially young energetic dogs and seems to feel most comfortable around calm senior dog friends or dogs that do not pay much attention to him. He would like to be the only dog in his future home so that he can have all the love and attention to himself, he has more then enough love to go around.
Jack is fully housetrained and never gets into trouble. He does not know much in the way of basic obedience and would enjoy attending obedience school to help him bond with his new family. Jack is currently being fostered in a town home and has done fine after an initial adjustment period. He does not require a fenced in yard, is quiet during the day and enjoys lots of walks. Jack would be described as a low/moderate energy boy. Snuggling is certainly one of his favorite ways to pass time but he is up for any sort of more active activity too. Jack is currently left for an entire work day and although this was a challenge for him at first, he has settled wonderfully into this routine and confidently goes into his crate every morning. Jack would be fine with a family that works full time away from the home.
Jack is a happy boy who seems to love everything about his life right now and be very grateful for his second chance. Jack has been through quite the journey to get to this point and is so ready to start his new life.
