found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.
Here is what his foster family had to say:
Right off the bat Jackson was extremely friendly and at ease with us - he wasn't shy with his kisses or cuddles. In addition to being one of the cutest dogs I've ever met, Jackson's personality is very endearing and lovable. He LOVES to play with his toys, ice cubes, or even just a good run around the house, but also enjoys sitting beside me (or on my lap) while watching a movie. He immediately found a friend in our own dog, Ray, and the two of them truly have a ball together whether it is at home, out on a walk or at the dog park. Jackson LOVES to play, give lots of kisses and cuddles. He's also starting to love his walks and really enjoyed the dog park.
Jackson is quite the polite pup - he hasn't tried to steal any of our food even when we eat on the couch (and the plate is much more accessible to him). He seems to follow Ray's lead which is to watch from a distance, ready to pounce on any droppings. Jackson has not chewed or gotten into anything he shouldn't, perhaps giving him time with a bone or a kong fulfills his urges. He is slowly learning the basic commands of come and sit although we are still working on teaching him his name! Jackson appears very healthy and has a beautiful coat that does not seem to shed at all!
Crating Jackson hasn't been so easy since his small cries are heartbreaking and as we live in an apartment we have not been able to just leave him to get over being alone. My boyfriend and I have opposite work schedules so Jackson is never left on his own for any length of time and because he is such a good little guy for most of the time, we haven't worried much about needing to crate him. He snuggles up with us in our bed at night and sleeps through the night with no issues.
Jackson can be a little timid when meeting new people but he quickly warms up after a sniff and is all kisses. He is a very friendly pup but more socialization would definitely be helpful. I have not yet seen him interact with children but I can't imagine him being aggressive. Jackson has shown no signs of aggression when playing with toys (I can even give him a kiss on the nose in the middle of a tug of war). Nor has he been snippy at all with Ray during meal times or sharing toys/laps/walking, etc. He is still getting used to all the noises of living in an apartment downtown as well as cars, bicycles, etc. Currently Jackson will bark whenever he hears a strange noise in the apartment but we are working on that.
Our first trip to the dog park was a success - Jackson had a great time, played with many different sized dogs and didn't bark at all. He was even approaching other dog owners on his own. While out on walks, however, Jackson may bark at other dogs passing but sometimes doesn't even notice them at all.
As he is still a puppy, Jackson's still has a lot of puppy energy, although he can also be very relaxed when we are having "down time" - he'll cuddle right up on the couch and take a nice nap. With the right amount of exercise, Jackson definitely becomes more manageable. Jackson is getting better on every walk. At first he seemed anxious on the leash, walking every which way and stopping randomly but he has become more comfortable and seems like he is enjoying his walks more every time.
Jackson deserves a loving home with a family who is willing to play with him and give him that exercise he needs. He is a big lover and will bring lots of joy to your life as he has already brought so much to ours. He could not be ANY CUTER!!! With the right training and socialization Jackson can be everything you want in a dog - all he needs is a chance!
If you would like to make Jackson part of your family, please submit an application for consideration.
