Plenty of Pets

Jack is a Lab/Bernese mix who loves people and is looking for a new place to call home.

Sometimes he forgets his manners and jumps up to say hello. He really loves food, so it’s best not to leave it unattended. Because he likes food so much, it’s a great reward to use while training him though.

Jack likes going for walks, and relaxing at home. He would love to have a home with someone who is retired or works from home. He loves children, but because of his size, and the fact that he might jump up, he’s best with teens and adults.

He loves other dogs, and will even cuddle with cats if they let him.
Jack is nine years, healthy, neutered, and up to date on vaccines.
