This gentle fox hound was found as a stray near Ottawa and came to Gentle Jake’s in July 2016. He is estimated to be 10 years old despite his puppy-like energy that will melt your heart. He is a medium sized dog, just about 50lbs.
Jackson  is a medium energy dog who enjoys 1 or 2 moderate walks each day, and is content to snooze away the rest of the day by your side.  He walks fairly well on leash; he makes a lot of friends since he is always veering off to meet new people.  Busy downtown streets are not for him as the sound of fast cars and loud trucks startles him and he tries to bolt, but he does fine on quiet residential streets.  On trails and open fields Jackson is tempted to follow his nose so no off-leash for him, but he does well on a 30-foot leash.  He has gone to the dog park a few times and seems a little overwhelmed by all the activity, but it's possible he would learn to enjoy it with regular visits at quieter times.
Jackson  would do best in a home that has other pets as he is very social but not exactly a leader.  In the home he gets along well with the cats (generally he ignores them but he does like the occasional snack of cat food when he can find some).  He enjoys the company of dogs and would like to have a friend that he can race around the yard with.
Jackson is crate-trained and spends the day in his crate while his foster is at work.  He loves to tear apart stuffed dog toys and will sometimes swallow the pieces, so only durable toys are suitable for him.  Because he is denied his beloved stuffies he will resort to the occasional slipper or mitten (and also cat toys), so crating or confinement to a safe area is recommended when he is left on his own.
Jackson is neutered, has been to the dentist and also has had his “lazy eye” inspected.  He has an allergy-based cough that is easily managed with daily pills that he happily takes with Cheez Whiz.  The pills are cheap (approx $10/month). 

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.
