Breeds: Cattle Dog, Pit Bull Terrier
My name is Jack (I respond better to Goose because I’m often called a silly goose). I am a 5ish year old goofball coming in around 60 lbs. My passions include snacks, food, meals, my bed, cruising in the car, and treats. I am a friendly guy to all I meet. Dogs and people included. I can be a little timid but give me a minute and my personality will shine right through. I currently live with a really great family that has 2 kids ages 8 and 12 and a dog-kid too!
Due to my rough life prior to fostering, I need predictable meal times. I don’t have issues with aggression or anything, I just will follow you around every single place you go and stare intensely at you until you feed me. Some might call it awkward. I might occasionally try counter surfing too (at this time I’ve only just taken peeks at the counter)…so I do need some supervision.
I am mostly a low key guy. I like a casual stroll around the block, some wrestling with my dog sister. I am cool with time in the crate, I might whine a bit for 5 ish minutes but then I settle down. I am not super wild about time outdoors. I was ditched outside for far too long. I’ve been doing better with enjoying yard time but I much prefer indoors with my bed. I am very gentle considering how much I love food, non-destructive, and pretty much house trained (these humans have missed my cues 2 times, I forgave them).
All things considered and considering the shape I was in (see my old pictures), I am a good guy who deserves a nice life. I am a sweet boy with spurts of spunk and shenanigans. I don’t know many commands but I assure you I will guess every trick I can think of if it’ll get me that treat. I love having a dog to hang with and my human brothers are cool too. It seems like 10+ would probably be ideal because I can hit up the short ones for snacks too often. I just need breakfast and dinner, a stroll around the block, a soft bed, and love. Oh, and SNACKS!
This guy is the epitome of “dog rescue.” Jack was found by a woman driving down a road in rural Mississippi - she noticed a dog crate on the side of the road and then realized there was a dog half in and half out of it just lying there. She slowed down, turned around and went back and made a call for help. One of our friends in the area went and grabbed him and brought him right to the vet (see some of the photos); it was very apparent he had been neglected. He was covered in cuts and scars, nails were so long he could barely walk, definitely underweight.
