JACKIE BOY NEEDS A NEW FAMILY JACKY BOY came to us originally from Miami in July 2018. He is a people dog. Super friendly and loving. He was adopted that same day by a family who has had him ever since then. Unfortunately family situations change and Jackie Boy needs to find another home. His adopted family loves him. He is sweet, he is affectionate and he loves people. They were torn that they had to relinquish him but things happen that we can't foresee and now he is available to love another family.

Jackie Boy is a black and tan GSD about 2 years old. His ears do flop but we never judge a dog by cosmetics. He is HW Neg, has all shots, and he weighs about 75 pounds. He is healthy, well adjusted and housebroken, dog friendly and trained. He is all about being touched and loved and returns that readily.
His parents wrote of him:

Jack is a 2 yr old German Shepherd. He may have something else in his DNA but to us he is all GSD by his traits and actions. He's a sweet boy, very affectionate and loyal, eager to please. Extremely intelligent. The only command he knew was sit. We taught him to come, sit
And look into our eyes, just by saying g the word come. He learned all of that in about 15 minutes. If you tell him "bed", he'll get in his bed. He's a gentleman on a leash
He uses his nose very well and could be a candidate for SAR!!!

Jack is high energy, still has puppy in him. Housebroken, likes his toys and not at all destructive. Well behaved when we are not at home. Not a profuse Barker but will alert. We live on a golf course he sees people golf carts, lots of activity, never barks. He had occasionally barked at night and sure enough, he heard people outside, we checked said "ok Jack, bed" and he went to bed and that was it.

Jack is a little skittish with loud noises and thunderstorms which is natural. He's doing much better with the storms, doesn't run and hide, but will like to be by you.
Jack would thrive in a home without infants and toddlers. Our grandchildren have over-run the house and Jackie is stressed by all of the excitement. He is great around kids, just the infants and chaos that is our home now, which makes him stressed. We love him and want what's best for him.

If Jackie works for your family please call us to set up a visit. In the mean time he is remaining with his now foster parents.
