Brief Bio:

Meet Jack! Jack was rescued along with his litter mates when they were abandoned in a construction site. One of Jack’s sibling somehow got caught in the wired fence and was yelping in pain which brought the attention of dog rescuers in the area. Luckily they were able to get them all to safety and to the vet for a full check up. Jack is a very sweet puppy who would love nothing more then to find a home to call his own. We are looking for a home that understands the responsibilities of owning and raising a puppy. Jack is patiently waiting!

ADOPTED!

"Hi Melody,
 
We are madly in love with Moose (Jack). We would have kept is name but our last dog (who passed away last year) was Jax. 
 
Moose bonded with Brooke immediately. It helped that she carried him through the airport during our trek back to the car (we forgot where we parked and walked around the airport for 30 min).  He sat on her lap and wouldn’t leave her side for the first day or so. He bonded with me after the first two days. He’s still working on feeling comfortable with Dave but we make progress every day.  It’s funny watching Moose work through conflicted feelings of “oh crap this guy is scary” and ‘’I really want that”. As soon as he gets over this,  he’ll figure out Dave is the biggest pushover of us all.
 
He’s soooooo smart. It’s been a life saver having him pad trained.  He goes on the pads every time and has only had one accident on the carpet. Once we corrected it, he was good.  It would have been really difficult to pad train a puppy that won’t let you touch him. We have already taught him to fetch and sit (see attached video). We are working on down and stay.  I’m slowing working on getting him to go potty outside but he has to master going down stairs first.  
  
He’s still shy and frightened of strangers although the people that look like Brooke are easiest for him to warm up to. Twice a day we carry him to the neighborhood market then walk home. The first few times he was pretty scared but he gets braver every day. Our plan is to keep that up until he’s comfortable, then gradually increase the distance and places. We know this will take a bit extra effort but it will be totally worth it. 
 
He’s really funny and loving. He jumps on our laps when we watch TV at night. He’s discovered that it’s really fun to grab a sock and run past us with it, making sure we see him and chase him down. His napping positions are always a good laugh.
 
Please pass on our thanks to Ivy for all of the work she did with him. In addition to the pad training,  he recognizes the sound of the refrigerator door opening and sits patiently while it's open. This had been his MO since day 1, so I figured Ivy helped with that.  
 
He is such a great dog! We are so grateful for you and your service helping us find this beautiful little soul. We are happy to be of reference to any other adopters or if you need anything. I'll add some pics and an update to the FB page. 
 
Best,
Gigi, Dave and Brooke McAdam"
