Hey there! I'm Jackie and yes, I am a lovely brown dog so you can call me Jackie Brown, if you like. It's a good way to remember my name when you come see me at ACCT! Here's my digits..A18008821 make sure you have them on hand just in case!
Here's my story, I was walking around this beautiful city of Philadelphia all by myself. I didn't know where I was and being lost is not that much fun. I guess I was really lucky to run into a wonderful person who brought me to ACCT so I can start fresh. A sweetheart like me really wants a warm, loving home. I'm about 2 to 3 years old an as far as my friends at the shelter can tell I'm some sort of Lab/Hound/Pit mix. I'm all the good stuff! I like the company of other dogs but if you have a dog already, please bring them to meet me so we know we are a match!
My Pen Pals friends are really great! They take me out to hike with other dogs and it's so nice to get out of the shelter for a while. They say I'm a medium energy dog. I love my outings and walks, I'm probably house trained and the transition to home life will probably be a smooth one. I'm also a very smart cookie. I already know "sit" and walk pretty well on a leash. I am working on "look", "paw" and "down" with my Pen Pal friends. I also love to be pet, what girl doesn't love affection? Some pets and cuddles and I am all yours! Come meet me today!
