Meet An Adoptable Dog
Breed: Labrador Retriever (medium coat)
Weight: 78 lbs
Height: 24 in
Estimated Birthdate: 10/27/2015
Fence Needed: Yes
Location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC
Reason for being in rescue: Jackson was found as a stray by a caregiver
Special Needs: Jackson was neutered and had a dental on 11/10/20. Our vet noted that Jackson has some scarring in his ear from an old hematoma. Surgical repair was not recommended.
What kind of home would be best for me: Jackson is a typical lab. He is happy, loving and loyal. He can be a little timid in new situations, but with confidence is a gregarious boy that loves to explore. Jackson is good with other dogs and with cats. He would be great in an active home looking for a walking and hiking buddy. Jackson would be fine for children over 10. He could be the only dog or live with another dog or cat.
What is my personality like: Jackson was found as a stray by one of our caregivers. With his happy, sweet personality it is no surprise he jumped right into the car!
While we don't know anything about Jackson's past, his demeanor tells us that he has been loved and knows human kindness. Like his breed, Jackson is as sweet a boy as you'll meet. He LOVES to be around people. He can be a little timid when he first meets you or first enters a new place, but give him a few moments to settle and he will be all about showing the love. Jackson is young and curious. He enjoys exploring and would be a great adventure buddy.
We don't know if crates were part of Jackson's past life, but he has done well with them at rescue. He is clean in his crate, is calm when the door is closed, and sleeps comfortably in his safe space. He'd far prefers to be where people and the action are. If Jackson is in a crate and he hears people, he is going to bark and ask to be outside where the action is.
Jackson loves to ride in the car. He is always up for a road trip and would love to be your travelling buddy. He is fine with other large dogs. We haven't observed him playing with other dogs yet, but he happily hangs out with his playgroup. Jackson would be good for a home with children under 10. He is a big dog with a lot of energy; fast movements make him nervous. Given this, more mature children that won't be intimidated by his size and that will move more slowly will be a better fit.
How do I act when I first meet new people: A little shy, but friendly
Tips and Tidbits: Jackson's estimated birthday is 10/27/2015
House trained: Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained. A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.
Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.
Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
