March 31, 2012: I've been adopted!

Say hello to Jack, an adorable 3 year old Landseer who is looking for love.

Friendly, social and lovable, Jack gets along with everyone he meets. He loves people and is happy to be right in the middle of all the action at his foster home. He is very affectionate and loves belly rubs and cuddles. What a sweet boy!

Jack went through our foster program last fall and at that time he got along very well with other well socialized dogs and loved playing and romping with them. He was adopted on Nov 6, 1011 and joined a family with other dogs. In February Jack started showing resource guarding behaviour and the decision was made to return him to us. Arriving in foster care a few weeks ago Jack continued to show resource guarding behaviour but is making progress in an environment with only one other dog - a female. At this time, we believe it is best if Jack goes to a home with an experienced handler, and either no other dogs or with a calm, well socialized female so his behaviour can be worked on and corrected.

Playful and happy, Jack loves running, playing fetch . He is well suited to an active owner who likes to go for walks and get out and play with their Newf. As much as he loves playing, a good nap afterwards in a sunny spot makes Jack a happy boy.

Jack knows basic commands and is a very smart boy. He is housebroken, crate trained, and has fairly good leash manners. What a great boy Jack is, he is going to make one lucky family very happy.

If you would like to be considered for adopting Jack, please complete an adoption application to begin the process. He is being fostered in Lindsay and his adoptive family will be required to pick him up in person. An adoption donation of $500 applies.
