Jack is a 5-6 year-old Lab mix who has markings reminiscent of a Jack Russell Terrier. He was adopted from us about 4 years ago but recently returned because he didn't do well with children visiting his home. He lived with kids and did fine with his own family but didn't welcome the chaos involved with visitors. We are looking for a quiet, mature home for Jack where he can relax and enjoy life. He does well with other dogs in his foster home but would be fine as the only dog in his new home too. Jack would like a family who is home much of the time so he doesn't have to be alone for long workdays. He is crate-trained but would much prefer to be loose in the house rather than crated. Jack will sit for a treat and does well on a leash too. He weighs about 55 pounds now but is about 10 pounds overweight so will need a family who will help him get back to a healthy weight through a combination of a low-cal diet and plenty of daily walks. His adoption fee is $200. Jack is neutered, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations, wormed, on flea preventative, and microchipped. All Canine Lifeline adoptions come with a two-week trial period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email email@example.com if you’re interested in Jack. All of our dogs come to us from county dog pounds so we have no history on them. We also have no foster homes with young children so aren’t comfortable placing any of them in a home with children less than 4-5 years of age. We try to respond to inquiries within 24-48 hours so if you haven’t heard from us within that time frame, please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there. Please visit our website at www.caninelifeline.org to see more photos of Jack and to submit an online application.
