My story

The names Jack, Jack Sparrow. Much like the character I too am hilarious, slightly flamboyant and quirky in the best ways. I hail from a small town down in southern Illinois. Originally picked up as a free puppy in a Walmart parking lot, I eventually ended up in the local animal control labeled as “ too much work”.  While I was locked up I learned to pace, bark a bunch and had no quality time to develop my social skills with dogs. Honestly, I didn’t learn much in my opinion, wasted talents. By the grace of the universe I managed to retain my sweetness towards humans and that’s what ultimately saved my behind. Which if I may say so myself is quite slender, the whole tall/dark/handsome thing, I’ve got that going for me. Months into my travels I found myself in a program where I was given the tools to hone my true talents. I decided that during this time I will dial down my crazy, better manage my hyper ness and I will learn the skills I need to be a better version of myself.  I am currently a mostly happy dude, I enjoy playtime with my human and dog friends, I receive various obedience training and leash training on a weekly basis, and I am learning to be mature and comfortable in my own skin. I am able to perform the following obedience and am very proud of myself: Sit, down, stay, heel, come, watch, place. Just a little snippet for all those wondering. I am also crate trained and I do mostly well in there. Although sometimes my anxious side can make be bark a little or pace. Right now I am living a working man’s life. I get up in the morning and have a day full of exercise, structured work and a set schedule. I’m told it helps me retain my zen. I have shown that at times I can get a little frustrated in high excitement situations and definitely still need some guidance there, but overall I have a great demeanor. I do however like to tease humans into chasing me most chances I get, fun times. Now let’s talk personal dreams and goals. I would love a family that enjoys being outdoors, doing fun activities together, potentially another housemate pup -as long as we are a good fit, I can’t have the wrong dog cramping my eloquent style. I very much enjoy attention so ideally a family that wants their dog to spend quality time with them. As for children, I do seem to enjoy kids, but the older the better as I have a tendency to herd and be a little controlling. Ages 13 and up preferably. Cats? Absolutely not, as I will chase them until my brain explodes, those critters are just too much fun to scare. The trainer says I need to work on those impulses a tad, but on the bright side it’s manageable! For now, I have some things to work on but a boy can dream. My family is out there, and I’m definitely ready for them! Sincerely yours, Jack Sparrow Notes from the trainer: Jack is a clever boy. He catches on quickly and is eager to work with someone that spends quality time with him. He is also a sensitive boy and needs a home that understands the herding breeds that he is mixed with and has ideally had experience with their behaviors. We have noticed that from the time he came into our program and even sometimes now, he has this tendency to want to corral dogs when there is high excitement. A few other triggers are the occasional fast moving car and the vacuum. He has definitely simmered down from day one but it’s important that an owner understands that about Jack and works through those behaviors with him. We have also noticed that socializing in healthy environments with dogs on a regular basis, helps to tame those behaviors as well. Essentially the more he practices being social the better he understands how to stay social.

Jack has shown us that he can also have some anxieties. A little bit of residual effects from his history. For months he had a complete lack of training/attention/love and that can affect a young impressionable dog months, even years into their recovery. Luckily with a stable, healthy, well balanced home those effects can become truly minimal if not extinguished all together.

If you are interested in Jack please know that he would do best in a home with no cats. A dog housemate is definitely possible, just needs to be a good buddy for him.
