Jack was found as a stray in a rural part of Maricopa, AZ. Attempts to locate an owner were unsuccessful and after several weeks he was officially taken into rescue and fully vetted. He is a young social boy who does well with other dogs but not a big fan of cats. He loves to chase balls and shake his toys. He was pretty thin & scared when he was found in the desert, so he does guard his food but he eats separate from other dogs in foster care, so that is not an issue at all. Rescue recommends not giving him bones or food around other dogs only because he was so thin but he is even losing the need to guard his food the longer he is in foster care and having regular meals. He is pretty energetic, so care must be taken around small children but he does great with the older kids and the children in his foster home. He is kennel trained and doing great with housebreaking. He is playful but loves to cuddle and have his belly rubbed too. Jack is super smart and is learning basic commands at lightning speed.
