Shepherd / Mixed

Born 6/24/2018

My name is Jack and I have been in the shelter for over a year. I am looking for a "human in shining armor". Someone kind and brave that will rescue me from the difficult situation of shelter life. I am so worth it! The people at the shelter tell me that I am one of their FAVORITE DOGS! Over the last few months I have worked with a trainer to make certain my leash and walking skills were great. I have practiced pack walking, place training, impulse control, and to be calm on the leash when other dogs are nearby. I have made an amazing training transformation! I have even received compliments on my good manners from complete strangers! I actually like to work and learn. I am highly motivated by pupperoni treats. My favorite pastimes are going on long walks, playing with toys, and playing fetch. If not playing, I prefer a calm and relaxing environment. I don't like surprise friend visits or crazy activity near me. If a stranger startles me, the old me would have given a warning nip. The new/ transformed me has lots of reasons NOT to react. If you are willing to give me this chance, there are soooo many easy things you can do to control our situation. My adoption comes with one training session to discuss it and work together. By the way, I am potty trained, super on a leash, and love to ride in a car. I am an all around great guy that just doesn't like surprises. Once I know you, I am VERY LOYAL AND LOVING! The shelter says we should have 3 visits before you save me! Fill out an application an schedule a Meet 'n Greet.

$100 Adoption- covers spay/neuter, microchip, and shots. I am on Heartworm Preventative. You will receive one month of prevention free. Dogs should be on heartworm prevention their entire lives.

Jack has had sleepovers with our volunteers and they report he does great in a home. He is well potty trained and goes quickly when you take him outside. He loves to cuddle and often stays in the same place for hours. Jack likes to stretch out and nap, but also likes to include you when he plays with toys. He also fetches. Two things that stand out for Jack is how quickly he learns your routine and his patience. He is always two steps ahead, both physically and mentally because he likes to anticipate your next move. Jack is also very patient. Many dogs get excited when something is about to happen, but Jack will just sit or lay down and wait for you. If you are working from home, in the kitchen, or just doing chores, Jack will quietly follow you but not be in the way. He does not beg for food and just lays near you while you eat. Jack does well on a leash and learns the route quickly. He loves going in the car where he will stick his head out the window or just lay down. Jack does socialize with other dogs at the shelter, but prefers being around smaller dogs. Click the image below to see Jack visiting a volunteer.
