Update on Harry Truman nka Jackson

photo7The 6 month mark is always an exciting time after any pet adoption. By this point a family has had the opportunity to get to know their new pet and they will have made some significant observations about their new buddy.

This is ARL alum Harry Truman, now known as Jackson to his new human companions. He was adopted in September 2013 and his family can’t praise him enough! Here’s what they had to say:

“We love him! He’s so smart, loving and absolutely perfect for us. He does well on and off leash, he passed a dog training boot camp we took him to with flying colors, he’s great with people and other dogs. We couldn’t have been luckier to have found him. We have more pictures of him in 6months than we do together after 2 years!

Jackson is doing great and loving his new home. He’s gotten very comfortable in the car, finally, and is obsessed with Kick Fetch toys, so we play often…and have to keep buying them because he chews them up. Fortunately, that’s the only thing he chews. He still has some separation anxiety when we bring him to day care once a week, but once he’s in the play room he runs around like crazy and forgets all about us.

Thanks again for helping us to take him home!”

To Jackson’s family thank you for choosing to adopt a shelter dog and for keeping us up-to-date on Jackson’s progress. We’re wishing you guys many more years of happiness!
