Meet Jack who was lucky enough to be tied out on a porch in Memphis. Lucky you say? Well, not normally but on this occasion, while he was tied out two nice women were walking down the street and happened to notice him - he was thin and seemed pretty scared so they stopped to meet him. They began a conversation with the homeowners who mentioned they had found him a few days before and weren’t sure what to do with him. They didn’t want to let him go as they were afraid he’d get hurt but they also weren’t too keen on letting him in the house. They had, however, taken him to the vet to get his vaccines which was great.
After talking to the homeowners for a bit and leaving the ladies went back and asked if they could take him home to foster and they reached out to some local contacts to see if a home could be found - and here he is on our website.
Jack is estimated between 3-4 months old - he was just neutered on 6/9 and did really well during his surgery - he is all vaccinated and was able to get his rabies vaccine as well.
He’s gaining some weight already and he’s absolutely in love with his humans. he sleeps contentedly under his foster moms desk while she’s work.
He’s doing great with his house training and does sleep in his crate at night.
He walks well on a leash - one of the other dogs in his foster home is reactive so he’s not been socialized directly with her but they all do walk nicely together and it’s felt he is fine with other dogs.
