   Leave a bone for Jackson

General, Jackie, Jack

Quick Bio:
-purebred-pound dog-dog rescue

Sleep. Food. Soft beds. Swimming.

Being rudely awakened. Cold weather. Having to go outside in the snow.

Favorite Toy:
Jackson's not much for play... Tennis ball once in a while.

Favorite Food:
Junk food.

Favorite Walk:
To the River. So he can swim while Merlin watches him

Best Tricks:
Sit. Down. Stay. Shake. Heel. Fetch. The best trick of all was that he came knowing all of these things.

Arrival Story:
Jackson came from Animal Control in Bellaire, Michigan. His name then was Dutch and the AC officers were doing everything they could to keep him there. Unfortunately while he wasn't being put to sleep, time in a concrete kennel with lots of food and no attention were having effects. His arthritis was worse, he was overweight, and he was *bored*. That was right years ago, and he was an older dog then. But he was also neutered, trained, housebroken, and an absolute sweetheart. He came home, though the staff at the shelter were suscpious of our motives, he came home with us anyway!

Jackson has arthritis, cataracts, his hearing is failing and he has more trouble getting around at times. He's also happy, he's helped trained the fosters by being a shinning example of good behaviour. He adores our kids and going on walks. We probably won't have him much longer, but we certainly have loved the time he's been with us. Senior dogs are under-rated. He has been an ideal dog, and we never had to do any of the work. Jackson passed away September, 2004 at 14 years old, after suffering a stroke. He was euthanized at his vet, with his family. See you at the bridge, General.
