Jackson's Story...
Jackson is a gorgeous boy about 7 years old. He is about 15 inches tall and 18 lbs. Jackson is a special boy who needs someone who will be dedicated to helping him relax and enjoy life. He is very scared and anxious and needs an all adult family who has the time and patience to work with him. He does not like to walk on a leash, is terrified of anything with a motor and loud noises. He MUST have a securely fenced yard (NO ELECTRIC FENCE) for his own safety, if spooked he is a flight risk. Jackson needs a quiet home that is located in a very rural/country setting. Please only serious inquiries that can provide the above for Jackson. Jackson is being fostered in Kearneysville, WV.

Why Adoption is a Great Option
