Male Beagle/Rhodesian mix
Birthday ~ 4/24/2016
Jackpot was turned in by someone who said they found him in their yard, but he had a hookworm infestation and wasn't ambulatory, so that's not likely. Whatever his story, we he's a dream! He loves to play fetch, and will bring back what you throw most of the time. Because he is still in doggy toddler stage, he's not much of a lap cuddler unless you really wear him out, but he'll give kisses on demand all day long.
Jackpot is a lover of everything! He has had a bulletproof "sit" since the day his foster got him, and is learning new tricks everyday. He is super smart and super sweet. We think he may be a Beagle/Rhodesian Ridgeback mix, so his size is a gamble, but his foster parent named him Jackpot because whoever gets him is definitely a winner!!! He also rides great in the car and no longer has accidents in his kennel.
Jackpot is current on vaccinations, neutered, and microchipped. Current on flea preventative and heartworm preventative.
*Before applying for a puppy under 6 months old, please note that we are looking for homes where someone is home frequently, or for those applicants who work 8 hr work days, we ask that you have made arrangements for someone to come home at least once during the day to allow the dog to go out for a potty break.
Puppies go through multiple teething stages during their first year. Providing your puppy with appropriate toys specially designed for teething puppies can prevent damage to belongings, but more importantly, prevent your dog from choking or suffering a dangerous intestinal obstruction. During the earlier stages, crate him or her when you can't directly supervise him.
*Local adoptions (New Orleans and surrounding parishes) preferred. We do NOT ship animals
If you are interested, please fill out an Dog Adoption Application
Our adoptions include a foster period of 4-6 weeks so that you can be sure that this pet is a good fit without any pressure, and we are available to answer any behavior or training questions during that time (and beyond, if you wish).
