Jack is a 10 year old Am Staff who happens to be blind. He doesn’t let either of these things hold him back! Amazingly, he was found as a stray in downtown LA. Jack loves long walks, car rides and the beach- but is mellow enough to sleep in his bed all day if called for. He quickly figures out new spaces and does fine with stairs and being around crowds. He has wonderful obedience skills, in fact just graduated a basic obedience course. He has a solid stay, sit, down and recall. He should be able to pass his Canine Good Citizenship, and maybe even Therapy Dog test.
Jack is very friendly. He gives kisses to everyone he meets, and calmly greets other dogs in a sociable manner. He would do well living with another friendly dog. He has some separation anxiety so would do best with someone who is home part of the day or can bring him to work. Jack is neutered, up to date with vaccines and in good general health.
We (Jack’s current foster) love him to pieces; he is wonderful! We’d love to adopt him ourselves. However, our resident dog does not like him-she is a female Cattle Dog and can be picky about who she lives with. It has recently gotten worse and Jack needs a new foster home ASAP. Jack should have no problem living with another friendly dog-he does play bows for most every dog he meets, even on leash! Don’t let his age, or lack of sight, deter you from meeting this great dog. He has many more years of love to give and has one of the sweetest temperaments possible.
Jack is being fostered in Felton through Reunion Rescue http://www.petfinder.com/petdetail/15467205 Please contact 831-704-7075 or email to meet Jack. We wouldn’t mind driving to meet you somewhere convenient. We’ll also help provide support for Jack while you are fostering in any way that we can! Fostering can be very rewarding; you’re helping a dog transition into a forever home that otherwise wouldn’t have seen the outside of the shelter again. Reunion Rescue can help with expenses related to caring for Jack.
