Jackson – Coming Soon!
born ~January 2010
Here’s Jackson! Jackson is an 8 year old poodle mix who is a bit of a fixer upper. He came to ACR with really bad skin and ear infections. Those have both been treated and he has made tremendous progress! His fur is coming back already and he should be back to the norms in no time.
Unfortunately, this little man is mostly blind. He is currently seeing a specialist who is working to make him comfortable, but he’ll never regain all his vision. But don’t tell Jackson he can’t see! He has had no trouble navigating Foster Mom’s home once he sniffed out and explored where all the furniture was. Every so often his little puppy foster sisters will move a dog bed and surprise him, but puppies are jerks right? Come March, Jackson will be getting one of his eyes removed and once he heals from that, he should be available for adoption.
Cuddling with Foster Mom is Jackson’s favoritest thing in the whole wide world! He can almost always be found burrowed under a blanket napping near her on the couch. Even with the level of discomfort Jackson experienced when he first came to ACR, he has always had a sunny disposition and loves everyone that he lives with. Jackson is a super affectionate pup – if you’re petting him and you stop, he’ll remind you that he’s still there. Despite his lack of sight, the dog park is his favorite place to visit! Foster Mom talks to him a lot so he knows where she is, but sniffing out the place and adventuring to new, open territory makes for a splendid time! When walking on a leash, he is pretty slow, but that’s to be expected.
What else is there to know about Jackson? Well, he’s crate trained and housebroken! Ok, so he needs to be crated when left alone otherwise he will make a mess in the kitchen. But he keeps his crate clean both at night when sleeping and during the day when Foster Mom is at work. Then again, he’s a bit spoiled and likes to sleep in the bed (the human bed), curled up under all the blankets!
We will update Jackson’s progress as he continues to heal. He needs to stay with Foster Mom until he feels his best, but we’re shooting for mid March. So if you’re looking for a sweetie who LOVES fetch, is super food motivated and wants to cuddle with you 24/7, consider bringing Jackson into your home. He’s gotten a second chance at life and is just waiting to share all of his love with his new family!
