Jack was originally rescued with his brother as a Cyprus stray. Unfortunately his current owners have made the difficult decision to search for a more suitable home for Jack as he and the resident dog sadly haven't gelled as hoped. He is also still quite nervous of the men in the family which is making the living situation quite difficult. Jack is currently living in West Yorkshire and can be visited should any prospective adopters wish to do so.
Jack is highly intelligent and very eager to please. He loves to learn and nails new commands very quickly. He has a strong personality and this means he doesn't always get along with every dog he meets. Jack is nervous around large dogs, but can be quite dominant in his play and therefore not great with dogs smaller than him - he is a chaser of fluffy tails! Dogs of a similar size and energy level are better matches for Jack.
Jack adores human company and is very well socialised and super playful. He doesn't enjoy being left alone for long periods of time and will tolerate about two hours, although more if there is a canine companion with him. Jack is very food orientated and will pinch anything that is within reach - he loves to eat! He's also been known to steal food from your hand, so he may need some training in this area. Jack also loves to cuddle and sleep beside someone.
Jack is housetrained and well behaved indoors. He will destroy soft toys but generally doesn't chew items he shouldn't. He can sometimes get overexcited and jump up to greet you with a toy in his mouth, but it's only our of love. Jack would be best suited to a home in a semi-rural or rural area as he loves going for walks and running through the countryside. He does show interest in the resident cat but happily lives alongside him and will leave him alone when told to do so. He does however dislike large dogs and is fearful around men, especially those he doesn't know.
Jack's comical personality and affectionate nature have made it really difficult for his current owners to make this decision, but they feel it's only fair for Jack to go to a more suitable home.
