Facts about Jackson

  • Breed: Labrador Retriever/Pit Bull Terrier Mix
  • Color: White
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Male
Jackson came to Ohio from a high-intake shelter where he and his siblings were at risk of becoming "urgent"; they were completely under socialized and very fearful. They have spent months decompressing and learning stability, routine, and confidence. Unfortunately, Jackson can exhibit some misplaced behavior when over-stimulated, so he needs a strong owner that is willing to work with him.

Jackson is discovering that not all humans are bad, and that he REALLY loves toys! He is very puppy-like in his mannerisms and can be a total goof ball. He does have some resource guarding issues (toys and food); he would be perfectly fine as an only dog, but may do well with another dog pending proper introductions. NO CATS for this guy though. We would recommend an experienced owner with no young children though (under 16 years).

Jackson would love a patient and understanding home to further help him come out of his shell and show him how great life can be. He is still a bit nervous on a leash, so a fenced in yard would be wonderful for him. An active owner that likes walks and/or hikes would also be good for him.

If you would like to meet Jackson and possibly welcome him into your home, showing him what it's like to be a member of a real forever family, please email us at info@rhar.org or contact us at 216-307-RUFF.

Our Adoption Process...

If you are interested in adopting an animal from Ruff House Animal Rescue, please fill out a Pre-Adoption Application at www.rhar.org. Once the application is reviewed, a representative will contact you to set up a home-check and meet-and-greet with the animal; if you have existing pets in the home, multiple meet-and-greets may be required to determine if the potential animal is a good fit. If everything goes well with the application and meet-and-greet, you will have the option to start a two-week (no-fault) trial adoption. An Adoption Contract will be filled out and adopters will be provided with all necessary paperwork for their new pet.
