Jack is a lovely solid liver smaller young GSP boy.  He is believed to be about 1 year old.  He was called Yako when rescued in Spain along with 5 other Pointers from an owner who just kept the dogs chained up. :-(  He is a sweet and responsive boy - although understandably a bit shy of strangers and of the bigger world due to his lack of socialization.  However, he is willing to investigate new things calmly, and has not shown any signs of fear-barking, etc.

Photos of when he was initially rescued in generally good body condition:-





He is in perfect health and is micro-chipped, vaccinated, neutered, and docked.

He has been in a foster home in the UK for almost 4 weeks now, and has really settled in well.  He is a smaller GSP - about 21" at the shoulder and quite lean and leggy - but in fact what you would expect from a young dog.  He hasn't got a lot of muscle as yet due to his previous life with limited exercise, but that is slowly building up.



He is good around other dogs, and is very happy with people he knows.  He is initially shy with strangers, but will soon take treats from them and relax.

He has no knowledge of children or cats, etc.

He is now clean in the house after a few initial 'wee' accidents, and sleeps well through the night without issues.

He walks OK on the lead alongside his two canine foster brothers (in quieter areas - he can't cope with too  much noise/bustle as yet), although he gets a bit dizzy when they are let off for a run, as he is still on a long-line whilst his fitness and recall are worked on.  His foster dad has recently started taking him on short runs, which he loves.

Playing with his foster brother ...



He travels well in the car.

He has been left home alone with the other two dogs, and in the main this has been OK, although he has on a couple of occasions done some minor damage to the stair carpet :-(  However, he isn't stressed when his fosterers have returned home, so they think it is more boredom / delayed puppy naughtiness rther than anything else.

He has been overall good in the home and hasn't been chewing etc. (apart from the above).

He is eating well, and is looking gorgeous!



Jack is looking for a new home with experienced owners who can give him confidence is his new big world.  He basically has the knowledge of a puppy, so will need training in the basics - he does already know how to sit for a treat!  LOL  He needs to be rehomed with another dog for moral support.   As we have no idea if he has met children or cats, great care will be needed to rehome him with either, and they would need to be dog-savvy to facilitate successful introductions.  He also needs a quiet home - preferably rural.  He is a lovely gentle lad, and just needs someone to give him the time to develop.  We will not rehome him to full-time workers as he has shown possible signs of SA, and so needs plenty of human company.



Jack is currently living to the North of Lincoln.

*** Jack urgently needs a home / alternative foster home as his current fosterers have had a change in circumstance which means they have to leave the dogs more than initially thought ***

So if you feel you can offer this lovely young boy a new home, and you have the experience and desire to train him, please get in touch.

N.B.  If you haven't already done so, please complete our on-line adoption Interest form before getting in touch:-

Jack is receiving visitors on Friday afternoon, with a view to moving to Yorkshire to live on a farm with a family and their 3 year old GSP boy Kaiser.  We hope the meeting goes well for all concerned so that Jack can really get to knows the joys of English rural life.  :-)

Good news - the meeting went well and Jack has now arrived at his new home to share with fellow GSP boy Kaiser (as well as several new humans and other animals  LOL).  He has explored the garden and then later fell fast asleep - it has been a busy time for the lad after all!

We look forward to receiving updates in the future.
