Home for the Holidays

Abe and Oreo will have their own forever homes just in time for the Thanksgiving festivities and all that great food for those fortunate enough to have the bounty available.

Abe has a family to call his own that will keep him very busy in eastern MA and a pal who is studying journalism at UMass. Perhaps Abe could be the subject of some of his assignments!! There was an instant connection with Abe’s new family, he just sidled up to them and decided he had to go home with them, no apprehension anywhere to be found from this gentle and nuzzling jack who’s looking forward to the beach walks they are promising him and the ball playing ahead. Good luck Abe, may your days be filled with confidence.

Oreo just amazed and impressed one and all in NJ where he is training with Frank Pugliese from Behavior Plus, playing with lots of dogs, going to classes with his teacher, to the ski slopes to meet lots of people and learn how to be a jack, and to stores and outings to let him learn that life can be quite exciting but he does not control the world, he needs to fit into it. Oreo showed his extreme intellect by picking up on all that was thrown at him and how to handle life once again. Several people honed in on his jack skills and temperament and one such family whose grandmother raised jacks in England before she came to America was especially taken by Oreo’s handsome stature and gentle way with people. One of the Behavior Plus trainers also fell in love with him and her border collie found Oreo quite an interesting mate since it appears they both have the same markings. One of the trainer’s students also was mesmerized by Oreo, so while in NJ three families are vying for his affection and soon we will know where he will find his forever home.

Truly a blessed holiday, and we wish that all those jacks in need of their forever families will one day too find themselves seated beneath the table where the turkey is being carved. Please reach out this holiday season and do not forget that November is Senior Dog Adoption Month, so share your good tidings with one less fortunate jack.
