Meet Jack. Jack is a very handsome 7 year old, 38 pound Liver and White Brittany. He came to ABR with his 2 sisters and not very much information on their past. He is house trained, walks well on a leash and listens well off leash.He is the sweetest dog you will ever meet. He loves to be with his people and will fall asleep on your lap if you rub is belly. Being a 7 year old he has outgrown all of his rambunctious puppy like behaviors and is a very mellow guy. He doesn’t jump up on people or try to drown you with kisses. If you sit on the sofa he’ll jump up next to you and wait to be pet. When you are around all he wants to do is hang out with you, when you are away, well no dog is perfect. Jack has some separation anxiety. Maybe since Jack had 2 sisters he is not used to being alone? Maybe another fur friend at home might make him feel more secure? When left alone Jack will bark…. and bark…. and bark. He isn’t destructive and won’t have accidents, when left alone for a reasonable amount of time, but he will bark. I put in 2 nanny cams to see what he did when left alone. Jack has the run of the house, and he runs from the front door to the back door barking and looking out the windows. I’m hoping this gets better with time. He does settle down every now and then but eventually he gets up and starts the barking process all over again. Jack is great with all other dogs he meets. He is good natured and gives a sniff hello then goes about his business. He isn’t all that interested in running and playing with them. I think Jack would be fine with small children as well. We went away for the Labor Day weekend with friends who had a dog and a 2 year old. Everyone got along very well. Dogs were fine together and Jack was very good and gentle with the 2 year old. I don’t think Jack would do well with cats. He has the natural Brittany instinct to chase small animals. Jack is a bit of a picky eater. He will only eat a mix of wet and dry food. He won’t eat dry food alone. Jack sleeps through the night on his bed on the floor in our room and he gets up when we do. I think the perfect home for Jack would be people who would be around a lot and would not leave him alone for long periods of time. I think with time and patience he will get used to being alone and get over his separation anxiety, but it will take time and work. Another dog might be beneficial, I can’t say for sure, but it won’t be a problem. Small children, older children, no children, all is OK. More people would just be more people to give Jack some love. A fenced yard would be good as it gives him some freedom to run around but stop him from chasing a squirrel across town. If it wasn’t for the separation anxiety he might be the perfect dog! Jack is up to date on vaccines, micro chipped, heartworm negative and on prevention, and is currently recovering from being neutered. All he needs is a patient loving family.
