Jackson in Nashville, TN

Just Adopted!

Here is Jackson with his new family...

This is Jackson. He's an incredibly sweet, beautiful little 2-year-old boy who was rescued from a breeder. Jackson has had little to no human contact before coming into foster, and is very skittish and shy around people, but loves his foster brothers and sisters. He is a smart inquisitive little guy that wants to be loved, but just doesn’t completely trust that you will give it to him. He will come up to you, and dance away when you try to pet him.

In the few weeks he has been in foster, he is beginning to accept love and hugs, but still needs to move at his own pace. He is starting to initiate and love ear scratches and belly rubs, but will still shy away on occasion. He needs to find a patient and understanding home that will give him the time and love that he needs to trust and accept.

He adores other dogs, still has the puppy playfulness, and is beginning to figure out what toys are for. Jackson has fallen in love with a stuffed rabbit that he carries around with him, sleeps with and will even fetch for you. He would be happiest with some furry brothers or sisters around the house to help show him that people are nice and can be trusted with his love! He has learned his name and is beginning to learn some basic hand signals.

Since coming to live with his foster family, Jackson has gotten up to date on all his shots, has been neutered, had a small hernia repaired, and micro-chipped. He's healthy as can be. He is mostly house trained, but will occasionally have an accident if we do not let him out enough.
