This is Jackson! And his name is listed once for every home/shelter/rescue he's been in during his first year of life. You see, Jackson was purchased as a puppy for an elderly woman as a gift. A gift she did not want. She surrendered him to a rescue where he was adopted out to another older woman who was unable to contain his antics when he was outdoors. So to a shelter he went. A fellow Rescuer assessed him and here were her notes: 

Jackson is very very stressed inside the shelter. His kennel presence is less than stellar and he really can’t go into another shelter environment. Jackson was not nice when I first met him. Was he trigger stacked? Yes. Did I push him over his threshold? Absolutely. Can a 13 month old German Shepherd/Husky mix thrive in a shelter environment? Just... No. I’d say within 5 minutes, Jackson stopped barking at me, within 10 he was taking treats gently from my hand and within 20, he was off leash in a yard playing tug with me. He takes time to warm up, and warms up to women quicker than men, but he LOVES people. He’s also slow to warm up to dogs, but has never been aggressive towards them and would probably do best with another confident canine that can teach him how to behave."

A H-E-A-R-T Volunteer knew he'd be better off in a Foster based rescue and that we'd be better suited to understand his working breed antics! 

Jackson has now been through a basic obedience training program and the Trainer has wonderful things to say about him:

"I can't say enough good things about Jackson, but that's not to say it was always that way. When he first came for training, he was like your typical untrained dog. Rambunctious and used to doing his own thing. On our first few walks together, he pulled ahead, not even considering me at all. Fast forward two weeks later. He heels (walks) beside you, checking in with great eye contact as you walk down the street. He is trained to come when called while he's on leash,  he sits and downs on command and will stay on place when told to. Jackson gets the top recommendation I could ever give by saying if there was room in our pack for him, I'd gladly take him in a heartbeat. Whoever adopts him is in for a treat and the best dog they could ever hope for."

That said, Jackson is in search of his furever home! He's a 1.5 year old Husky/German Shepherd mix who is very active. Jackson needs a home who understands the working breed and who is very active. He's an outdoorsy kind of guy and enjoys hiking, runs and outings. Jackson needs an outlet for his energy! He's housebroken, crate trained, good on a leash and good with other dogs and has done well with his Foster's cats! Keep in mind those cats are used to dogs and stand their ground. A skittish cat would not be a good fit. Jackson has not been tested with kids but due to the lifestyle he needs, a home without is probably best. Jackson can be vocal at times, especially when playing with his canine foster pals and would do best in a home with a fenced yard. He's a goofy character and needs a home who can embrace his husky-tude, like we have!

Jackson is neutered, current on vaccines and healthy. He is being fostered in GA but can be transported as far north as NJ along the east coast, for an approved adopter. Apply on our website: Education And Rescue Team is a foster based rescue. Our dogs are in our foster homes all up and down the east coast. We do not have a facility in which you can visit. We find this a huge benefit because we learn our dogs and are able to educate our adopters on what it’s like to have them live in your home. Part of our process, once pre-approved, is to speak with the foster for the dog you’re interested in. If you’re still interested in adopting from our rescue the first step is to complete our adoption application online at
