Physical Description: Jack Spratt is tall and lean with mostly brown markings on top and white underneath, assorted brown freckles, matching brown eyes, and long floppy brown ears.
Personality: Lover of all things peanut butter, Jack Spratt takes treats very gently. Jack is sweet and laid back, but always ready for a walk or run. He bonds with the volunteers who take him for walks—and afterward focuses on their face with his dreamy eyes, watching them to see if they are going to take him out again. He clearly enjoys running and can sustain a good pace for 4 to 5 miles! Jack loves to ride in the car, and after a minute he lies down. In fact, he is so quiet and calm that you may forget he is even there! Jack already knows "Come," “Sit,” “Stay,” and "Go get in your bed," and is working on "Lie down." This is a sweet, goofy hound, who is full of funny expressions that are sure to make you laugh. Jack is housetrained and crate trained. He is not good with cats.
