Jack Sparrow is a lean, athletic, and majestic-looking dog. Mostly fawn colored, he has white markings on his face, chest, the back of his head, and paws.
Jack Sparrow is friendly, affectionate, and very smart. In only two weeks since he arrived in his foster home, he has learned most basic commands and to stay on your left during walks and runs. Jack would love to continue being someone’s jogging buddy and getting in his 3 to 5 miles regularly! He needs a fenced yard to run and play in when he recovers from his morning run. Jack has been given lots of activity and toys, and he has not shown any destructiveness. He’s crate trained and housetrained. Although a powerful dog, he is mild and gentle when saying hello to people and dogs on our walks. He may be a little too rough for playing with other dogs, unless they know how to play with, or correct, a strong and fast dog.
Jack Sparrow is in great heath, up-to-date on vaccinations, microchipped, and neutered.
Jack Sparrow came into IAR from a rural shelter.
IAR subsidizes post-adoption professional training with Jane Marshall (www.cheerydogs.com) to encourage a life-long and successful bond between the dog and the adopter. Group classes for puppies and adult dogs are provided at a substantial discount to IAR adopters.
