Hi there! I'm the sweet, smart, and sometimes sassy Jack! I am waiting to find a patient, loving family to call my very own. Likes: I absolutely love treats! I am an incredibly food-motivated pup, which helps tremendously when it comes to learning new tricks or behaviors. I could learn just about anything! I also love to play fetch and tug with my favorite toys, cuddling up with my favorite people, and running around with doggy friends. I really love to be warm: Since it's started to get cold, my favorite thing is sleeping in front of a radiant heat lamp. I also LOVE the beach! I prefer calmer dogs that are respectful of my space and don't steal my favorite toys. Dislikes: I have handling sensitivities but my fosters have done a great job working with me on a harness that requires minimal handling. I also prefer to not be bothered when I am sleeping or curled up under the covers. If you call me out of my cozy blanket den, I will happily come out, no need to pull me out! As much as I like being warm, I prefer to not wear coats. Medical: I have a history of mast cell cancer growths, which can reoccur. According to our vets, there is a low risk of these growths complicating my quality of life, as they can be removed if they come back. We were told that there is a low risk of these growths spreading to my liver or spleen. I am currently taking a few different medications to help manage my behavioral and medical needs and I am pretty good at taking my pills, especially if accompanied with a delicious treat! Helping Hands Grants: Due to Jack's medical and behavioral needs, Animal Aid is offering a $500 annual grant to assist in the costs of his ongoing medical care. Additionally, we are offering a one-time $500 grant to work with the Certified Veterinary Behaviorist and Certified Trainers at Synergy Behavior Solutions to set him and his furever family up for lasting success.
