UPDATE: Jack has become our "go to" dog to help us assess other dogs at the shelter. - - - Jack: 3 years old, hound mix, loves long, lazy walks to gain confidence; While he is not the most affectionate dog, we think he is learning to be a dog by proxy— watching humans and learning from them rather than learning from other dogs. Every time he does something wonderful, facing the loud noise when the compressor outside the tech center kicks in, for instance, we could shout and scream encouragement, but we don’t need to do it! For Jack it’s good enough to know that there’s a human there to protect him and make sure nothing will happen to him. Jack is a dog that would bolt if he had the chance, so we are making sure nothing happens to him while we help him grow. Does he need you? Start with an application found here: www.friendsofcampbellcounty.org. - - - UPDATE: A volunteer spent extra time with Jack this rainy weekend and was able to wipe off the raindrops and even got a few pets in without any show of aggression. He is just starting to see humans are not so bad after all. Check out the video. - - - JACK was found a couple months ago by a rural family who posted his appearance at their home, and hoped he could be integrated into their home and become a friendly, happy part of the “pack.” We don’t know what Jack’s background was, but over the years we have worked with some dogs that cannot handle confinement, and that are so miserable being “domesticated,” they shut down when they are asked to be an average socialized member of a household. Jack avoids contact; he would prefer to be invisible, to melt away into the woods, and to exist without human interference. Have you ever experienced a Jack? It’s tough to witness.
