CB is now Jackson, and this dashing and delicious 5 ish-month-old chocolate puppy is happily settling into his new home with Jodi and Ryan, where he is quickly learning that life is grand when you’re a well-loved family Lab. Jackson adores his new parents, but his true BFF and partner in fun is his new human brother, Wesley. These two lucky boys can look forward to many years of companionship, love, laughs, a few shared secrets, and always learning from each other as they grow up together.

Jackson’s new family sent us an update:  “We brought Jackson home on July 28. He had an amazing foster-mom. She sent videos and pics the week we were picking him up, which helped us learn about his personality. Jackson adjusted very quickly to our home and is such a good boy. I have an 8-year-old son, Wesley. The two bonded immediately and are found playing and chasing each other every day.

Wes is taking some of the lead on training. Jackson has learned basic commands as well as crawl and roll over. We love having this pup in our home. He loves reading books with my son in the evening before bed. He gets everyone going in the morning with “turbo dog” moments. He’s very curious and that makes for a great hiking partner for us.

Our adoption with SHLR was the first ever rescue we had worked with. Sherri is very responsive and shows true empathy for these dogs. We will be fans for life!”
