Jack Black is a sweet, mellow boy who loves to lie in the sun in the fenced yard and watch the world go by. Gentle and affectionate, he craves pets and loves being near his family! Jack would thrive in a home with children, and he enjoys the company of other friendly dogs.
Fully crate-trained, he has been doing well with frequent potty breaks. Jack is eager to please, has mastered Sit, and is looking forward to learning more. He responds well to correction, respects established boundaries, and walks calmly on a leash. An inquisitive pup, Jack is always excited to sniff and explore. His nose and hearing are keen, although his eyesight is limited.
Two of his favorite things are spending quality time with his people and listening to the fascinating sounds of the great outdoors. Oh, wait, I forgot his very favorite--eating! He adores his kibble (which, due to his aging teeth, is softened with chicken broth). And he is always on the lookout for a treat!
Jack Black has a glossy black coat, a white chest and muzzle, and honey-brown eyes. We'll let you decide if he resembles his namesake!
Jack Black is up-to-date on vaccinations, neutered, and microchipped.
Jack Black lived at a rural shelter for several months, where he was a staff and volunteer favorite.
