Meet Jack, a very friendly and outgoing 2 year-old guy who looks like the perfect mix of Border Collie and Lab. Jack found himself homeless at an overcrowded county dog shelter and made the trip to Canine Lifeline so he could take his time finding the perfect new home. While we dont have any history on Jack, weve found him to be a very playful dog who enjoys meeting new people and engaging with other dogs. Jack would certainly enjoy having an active canine buddy in his new home and a family who has plenty of time to include him in lots of activities. He has done well with crate-training in his foster home so we expect he should be able to pick up the house rules quickly in his new home. Jack has been working on his leash manners in his foster home and doing pretty well although he still gets very excited when he sees another dog or a critter outside. With daily practice in his new home and some obedience work, Jack is sure to make a great walking, jogging, or trail buddy for his new family. Jack was recently adopted from us but returned after three weeks because he had too much energy for his adopter. He still has lots of puppy behaviors and would do best in a home where he has another active young dog to play with as well as a yard with a secure aboveground fence so he can run and play to his hearts content. If he isnt kept busy, he tends to be mouthy (playing rough with his people). He also loves to chew so needs to have lots of his own things to keep him occupied and out of trouble. Jack weighs about 40 pounds and his adoption fee is $350. Hes neutered, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea and tick preventative, and microchipped. As part of the adoption process, all adopters must commit to a two-week adjustment period to make sure its a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email if youre interested in Jack. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. Please note that we dont place our dogs in homes with children under 7 years of age. We correspond via email so please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasnt landed in there. Please visit our website at to see more photos of Jack and to submit an online application. 10/2/22 3:25 PM
