Hi there! My name is Jackson B. I’m a 5 year old Sheperd mix originally from Lebanon. I was adopted a year ago in Ottawa but developed some guarding issues due to lack of structure in my home and was unfortunately returned after a bite incident. Now I am under the care of Sophie’s dog Adoption in Montreal in a dog-savvy foster home until my ideal forever home can be found. Because of my bite history (I broke a bit of skin doing a quick bite and release), I must absolutely be adopted by someone with experience. I deserve a chance to become a balanced dog. Here is what my foster mom has to say about me…
“Jackson B weighs around 75 lbs. We think he’s overweight at the moment, he needs exercise
Energy : low-medium. He’s lazy inside but he loves his walks and even enjoys a light jog. He needs his daily exercise and plenty of mental stimulation.
Can live in an apartment. Friendly with strangers and not reactive towards dogs. No problem at the dog park. Not tested with cats. Fine with dog-savvy children over the age of 10 but very strong, so must be supervised properly. Not suitable for small children.
Jackson has occasionally growled when being told what to do (eg told to get off the couch) but he quickly relents when he realizes it’s an argument he won’t win. He’s not allowed on couches or beds unless invited. He’s very strong and walking on a leash isn’t his strong suit, but we’re working on it.
Jackson has two sores on each of his front legs, he’s currently wearing a cone to ensure he doesn’t lick the ointment being used to treat them. We are in the process of trying to figure out if these sores are caused by stress or allergies”.
So now that you’ve read about me, perhaps you think I’m the pooch for you? If you’re ready to commit to my well-being for the rest of my life and you have excellent experience with dogs.
