Jack is a gorgeous 2-year-old all black German Shepard who loves being outside where he can run and play! This guy loves people but is initially shy and cautious until he gets better aquainted. He loves playing games such as tug, chasing a tennis ball and with other dogs at times. He doesnt always know his own size and strength, so please no young children under the age of 12. When it comes to potty training, Jack is learning the ropes and is almost there! Jack is used to being the only dog in the home and has some separation anxiety when left alone, especially when kenneled. Due to his strong prey drive, no cats please. Jack needs a large yard with a 6 ft fence (at a minimum) to keep him safe and happy. Happy dog, happy owner! All applicants must agree to work with a Muddy Paws trainer after adoption and it may require a couple meetings to ensure a smooth happy transition. He is a wonderful dog that just needs a patient owner while he learns to trust. If you are feeling up to the challenge, please apply to adopt Jack today! Adoptions for Jack are limited to within 50 miles of the Omaha/Council Bluffs area so the pet can continue to take advantage of free training from our certified positive reinforcement trainer if necessary. If this pet is not spayed or neutered at the time of adoption due to limited vetting availability, a voucher will be given to the adopter for a free spay/neuter procedure at Val Verde Animal Hospital. Spay/neuters completed elsewhere will be reimbursed $80/dog or $55/cat once proof of alteration has been received by Muddy Paws. Alterations are required for all Muddy Paws adoptions. The adoption contract states alters must be done within ONE month of the adoption date or the adopter will be in breach of the contract. Adopters are required to provide proof of alteration to Muddy Paws Rescue immediately following the procedure. Thank you in advance for your compliance. The suggested adoption donation for Jack is $415. We are a 501c3 organization which means that your donation may be TAX DEDUCTIBLE. Your donation goes toward the high cost of veterinary care for our animals in rescue, as well as providing supportive services to animals in homes. Information about the adoption process: All adoptions require a completed ADOPTION APPLICATION. Once your application is approved, we will put you in touch with the dogs foster to see if you and the pet are a good match. If so, we will arrange a meeting for you and the pet. The adoptions for all of our animals will take place in the Omaha, NE area and must be done by the adoptive family in person. We do not ship or deliver. Please Note: We are a RESCUE, which is different from a shelter. We conduct veterinary and personal reference checks during the application approval process. We always select the right applicant for each dog, based on the dogs needs. If you and the dog are not a good match, we will help you select another dog, or we will keep your approved application on file for 6 months.
