Hi! My name is Jack and if you are looking for a cute puppy and a great companion, I'm the puppy for you. I am a very handsome four month old sheperd mix. Everyone tells me that I look a lot like a German Sheperd. I am mostly brown with a little bit of black mixed in. I got my name because I have two big ears that look a lot like a 'jack rabbits.' My foster mom and dad are always laughing at my ears because one of them stands up and the other one is really floppy. When I run, my ears flop all over the place. Everyone that sees me tells me that I am the cutest and chubbiest puppy they have ever seen.
When I first got to my foster mom and dad's house all I wanted to do was run and play in the yard. I love to explore in the yard and play with all of my friends. One of my favorite things to do is play peek-a-boo with my sister Dolly and my foster sister Marley. We run in circles around the bushes in the yard until I get tired and then I just like to lie in the sunshine. I had never seen a dog toy until I got to my foster mom and dad's house. I think toys are the best. I love to play with squeaky toys, balls and especially love to chew on my kong. With all of these girls around, sometimes I just like to play by myself. Even though I like to play, I REALLY like to cuddle with my doggie friends and with my foster mom and dad. I am a really good boy and do not like to get in trouble. I'm really smart and learn things quickly. Since my mom and dad both work during the day, I stay in my crate and snooze the day away until they get home. So far, no accidents in my crate! One of the best times for me is meal time because I love to eat! I am working really hard to potty outside and will do anything for a yummy treat. rnrnI sleep all night in my crate. The only time I make a sound is if I need to go potty. I will go out, potty and come right back in to go back to sleep until morning.
Jack was neutered on Halloween and was given a clean bill of health. He is up-to-date on all vaccines and is ready to go home with you today!
When I was three months old I was found with my two sisters roaming the streets. I was turned in to a nearby shelter, where I lived for a little over a month. After being there for a short while, one of my sisters was adopted, leaving my sister Dolly and me sad and alone. Finally, my foster Mom and Dad came to the shelter. When they walked up to my kennel I showed them my cutest puppy face (floppy ears and all) and they couldn't resist.
