~JACK HAS AWAITING RESCUE IN WASHINGTON~
Jack was brought in as a stray from the side of the road, way back on October 26, 2012 to the Lumpkin County Animal Shelter. He was given the name, "Splatter." Things just didn't seem to be going his way, and with a name like that, who can blame him! He was going for a more dignified name, and chose "Horatio" which means "Guardian" in Greek. He thought maybe a name like this would bring him the right kind of attention, and get him out of this place which he was really starting to dislike. It did get him noticed, and pretty soon he thought things might just work out after all. But sometimes our paths in life go different directions than we thought, and he soon found himself out of the shelter and without a home. He thought maybe adding something to the dignified "Horatio" name would help, so he came up with "Captain Horatio," and thought it fit him quite nicely. We were watching out for him of course, and called up one of the best foster families we knew, and asked if they would like to board a weary hearted traveler named, Jack. Jack, or as he knows himself "Captain Horatio Jack," has been in foster for over a month now, and we are so happy to announce that Saving Great Animals in Seattle, Washington is going to give this amazing guy a chance at a forever home. He is going to need funds for HW testing and prevention, rabies, health travel certificate, a good old veterinarian exam, and funds to make the cross country trip from Georgia all the up to Washington State. PLEASE HELP JACK GET ON HIS WAY HOME!
Here is what Jack's foster said about him, PLEASE READ ABOUT JACK:
Jack is a sweet guy who has a lot of energy. He does very well on leash and loves to go places--either walking or riding in the car. He gets along with all people and dogs. He wants to play and seems to know how gentle he needs to be. For example, with my mother-in-law's poodle, he just nudged her and let her lead the play. When playing with me, he does not bite or get rough. If he starts to nip, a soft reminder is all he needs. He loves to play, and if a toy is not available, he will make do with something else, like a shoe! He can usually annihilate a toy that is advertised as "super durable" in less than an hour. He will fetch and return a toy and will lie down on command. With cats, he wants to play and doesn't seem to understand why my Meeko doesn't want to play. I am very confident that Jack would never hurt a cat. The other day, Jack was chasing Meeko and got her cornered. She would usually hiss and slap him. This time, she turned around and chased Jack, then slapped him! So, after a few weeks, they are coexisting. Jack loves his food, but is not food aggressive, and he will wait until another dog walks away before finishing what is left in the bowl. He is extremely gentle when given food by hand and never uses teeth. He does not jump on people and appreciates attention. He likes to snuggle on the bed when I'm watching tv, but he usually gets distracted after 10-15 minutes and has to check out something. He is crate trained and sleeps in his crate at night and when we are out of the house. More work is needed for potty training. He is like the dog in UP who gets distracted and forgets to do his business when he is outside. He needs a family with kids to run around with and use up his energy. He definitely is not a lazy, lie in the sunshine dog! If you raise your voice even slightly, he will go belly-up begging forgivenes
