MEET JACK

My partner and I had discussions of getting a dog, but we weren’t ever serious about it: we just bought and moved into our second home, still had tons of boxes we had yet to unpack, and planned on dedicating our time/energy/money to a lot of house projects.  We could not have a dog.  That, and we also weren’t agreeing on what type of breed.  So the idea fell to the wayside, though it was reinvigorated every other week when one of us would send the other a Petfinder listing; other than that, we weren’t too serious.

Until Jack. This beautiful goober was listed on Petfinder for a week before I stumbled upon the ad.  I immediately sent the listing to Ven and surprisingly, she liked him too. We applied, stalked Angel’s Furry Friends’ website and instagram, waited and dreaded that he had already been adopted, and then finally heard back! We got to meet him for an “interview”, where he impressed us with his playfulness and good manners, and from there things happened pretty quickly (like, literally 24 hours later he was re-homed with us).  We became dog parents over night!


It’s been nearly two weeks and we’ve learned so much about him: he LOVES tennis balls so much that he’ll completely destroy one a day if given the chance (he’s been given two), he (or maybe they) pees like a female dog and it’s adorable, his breath does not smell and we’re so grateful, he’s 2 years old and weighed 80 pounds, but after living with us for two weeks and going on three walks a day, he’s definitely lost weight, and lastly, he likes holding paws/hands.  He’s melted our hearts and made us so much happier. We can’t wait to get him some more behavioral training so we can introduce him to friends and family.
