Jack (fka. Jakk)

Jack has been with us a couple of months now and is doing very well. Jack gets along well with his canine siblings, May, our terrier mix, and Fizzgig (formerly Tuomy, also adopted from Heartland), who we think is most likely some sort of chihuahua mix. Jack really enjoys going on hikes with us around our neighborhood and on nearby Cook County Forest Preserve trails and romping around our backyard when the weather’s not great for hiking. Mostly he’s an extremely loyal companion who insists on being right next to us at all times (it’s the shepherd in him, I suppose!). We’re happy to have Jack as a member of our family and extremely grateful to Heartland volunteer Joanne Rowe, who fostered Jack during his transition out of the shelter and has been kind enough to sit for him when we had to go out of town.

When you adopt from a no-kill shelter, you save two lives. The animal you adopt and the one that replaces him.
