Jack is a character! Energetic, goofy and with a few tricks up his paw like “High 5,” “Shake” and “Roll Over,” he’ll be a great buddy for an active family that loves to do things with their pup. Jack is a beautiful fox-red Lab with soft ears who’s about four years old and a svelte 60 ish pounds. His Kansas family left him at a shelter when they were no longer able to care for him.
Jack is house trained, knows his basic commands, is eager to learn and please, and adores treats which he takes nicely. Speaking of adoration, Jack has never met a stranger. He’s an affectionate Lab who will sit between your knees and loves having you rub his paw. He’s an on-the-go guy on the leash who does best with a harness. A six foot fence is required for this athletic Lab. He has a very rough, dominant play style with other dogs; to avoid misunderstandings he needs to be your only dog and would not be suitable for dog parks.
Jack is an “American Lab” who was bred to be an active hunting dog (we don’t know if he ever was a hunting companion), and typical of that line of the breed, he’s got a lot of energy and is smart. An active family that has the time and can make the commitment to providing Jack with leadership, structure, daily exercise and continued training will be the right one for him. While Jack’s got some basic commands sand tricks down, our trainer is working with him on waiting at doors, greeting manners and focus around distractions outside. We will provide a training session or two for his new family as well
When we asked Jack about his faves, he was quick to woof: “People!! Oh and tennis balls, chasing balls, roughing up toys, ice cubes and carrots, too. Baths and getting dried with the blow drier are a hoot! I love sitting in your lap on the floor and getting belly rubs. Sometimes I think the world is made for petting and loving on me!”
A top candidate for “Mr. Personality of the Year,” we bet when you meet Jack he’ll get your vote in a heartbeat!
