Jackson was picked up as a stray in the countryside just outside of Ottawa.  The vet estimates him to be 10 years old (although he has more energy than you'd expect from a 10 year old, so perhaps he's younger than 10) and he weighs about 45 lbs.  He is a sweet gentle boy who just wants to rest his head on your lap and gaze soulfully into your eyes while you rub his ears. He is playful with other dogs and with his toys, and he gets along wonderfully with the cats in his foster home. 

Jackson loves going for walks in the local parks, and is starting to enjoy walks around his suburban neighbourhood, although the noise of passing cars still startles him.  He used to howl along with the fire engine sirens, which was kind of cute, but he doesn't do that anymore now that he is used to them.  He enjoys hanging out in the backyard and is pretty quiet for a hound, barking only occasionally as people pass by the house.  Jackson doesn't like thunderstorms and will head to the safety of his crate to wait for the storm to end.  He is a good boy in his crate and rarely makes a peep when he is in there.  He is fully housetrained.

Jackson has one eye that looks like it suffered some damage but the vet does not think it is painful. He doesn't seem to be able to blink, but the eye is well-lubricated and there is no damage to the cornea.  We're not certain if he has any vision in that eye.  There is nothing that needs to be done with it - maybe just drops every now and then if it seems irritated.

Jackson has been neutered and has had dental work done to remove some bad teeth.

Please Note: We are all volunteers and busy taking care of our foster dogs so please take the time to fill out our on-line adoption application if you are interested in more information about any of the hounds that we have for adoption. Filling out our application does not obligate you to adopt in any way. It does, however, help us to determine if the dog that your interested in would be a good match for your family and lifestyle. 

All of our dogs are fully vetted. They have been vaccinated, altered, microchipped and heartworm tested and on prevention.



LOCATION: Jackson is currently in Ottawa, Ontario. With the help of volunteers, transportation to his forever home can possibly be arranged. Don't let distance deter you!

About Gentle Jake's Coonhound Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Gentle Jake's Coonhound Rescue is a small, not-for-profit organization dedicated to the memory of my beloved coonhound Jake. Our volunteers are dedicated to helping homeless and abandoned coonhounds find loving and permanent homes as indoor pets. We are based and operate in Ontario. We have been rescuing these wonderful hounds since 2003. We are also a member of Coonhound Companions where our goal is to educate the public about misconception that hounds do not make good family pets. We want to share our love of coonhounds with the whole continent, with hopes of inspiring dog lovers everywhere to consider adopting a coonhound.

Our Adoption Process...

All adoptive homes are required to go through a screening process that includes a telephone interview, filling out an application, reference checks and a home visit. An adoption donation is required to offset some of the costs incurred in caring for and re-homing each coonhound. Bluetick Gentle Jake's Coonhound Rescue remains committed to each animal for the rest of its life and if, at any time and for any reason, the adoption does not work out, we require that the hound be returned to us.
