American Staffordshire Terrier
Our adoption application can be found at the bottom of this pets bio. Once your application has been approved, we can arrange a virtual meet & greet with you and Jack!

Jack is currently in a foster home in Houston, TX and is eligible to transport to an adopter as soon as one is lined up!

Meet Jack! 

This handsome “pocket pittie” is estimated to be about 3 years old, weighs 45lbs and is the cutest Staffordshire Terrier mix there is!  Jack is fully vaccinated, microchipped, neutered and ready to find a family to call his own!

Jack was originally confiscated from a hoarding situation where he was caged 23.5 hours of the day without access to food and water. However, his past has not affected his love for humans one bit! This goofy guy does not meet a stranger and wants to be everyone’s friend. 

Jack has a medium to high energy level, but once he is given a long walk and some exercise, he’s happy to be next to you on the couch. Jack can pull on the leash when you first get outside, but his foster mom walks him on a front clipped harness, and he does great! Jack just wants to be outside, with his humans. 

Jack is extremely intelligent! He knows his name, and he is crate and potty trained. Jack spends the full 8 hours in the crate during the night and doesn’t make a peep. Jack will alert you if he hears someone at the door by letting out a bark. He learns super fast and is very treat motivated. He hasn’t met a treat he doesn’t like! Jack also does very well in the car! 

Jack is friendly and neutral with other dogs, however, we think he would thrive in a home where he is the only dog. Due to his past in the hoarding case, Jack doesn’t like to share his food or toys. Who could blame him after everything he has been through?!

Jack has not been around cats, but for a serious adopter we can coordinate a cat temperament test. 

Jack has not been around children, but due to his size and general goofiness, we think he would do best in a home with children over the age of 10. He sometimes doesn’t know how strong he is and could easily knock over a child. 

Here is what his foster mom says about Jack: “Jack is a SUPER silly guy and he just loves to follow you around the house. He is always so happy to be right by your side – even if you’re just getting up to grab some water, Jack is there with you! When we take him on a hike and he loves every second of it. He will even let out the cutest snort noises and will hop around if he is super excited!”
