Meet the Dogs - 2018 American Rescue Dog Show

23. Jackie - Senior Dog Category

Name: Jackie - Best in Rescue Champion
Category: Senior Dog WINNER
Adopted from: A Purposeful Rescue


About Jackie: At age 11, Jackie is young, gentle, and has an amazing spirit. She also loves to be by your side and just sit and stare into your eyes. Jackie was 10 years old when her former family left her at the shelter. Being a senior dog, and a black dog, her chances of adoption were slim. She was scheduled for euthanasia, and with hours to spare, she was rescued just in time! From the moment Jackie came home and met her new family, two kids, and three other rescue dogs, she knew she was home. Jackie loves snuggling in bed with her family at night, after a long day of swimming, playing fetch, and socializing. She has never met a person or dog that she didn’t like.


Favorite Toy: Her flamingo. We got it for her the day after she came to us and she doesn’t really go anywhere without it. When she isn’t walking around with it she uses it as a pillow.


Favorite Treat: It’s bizarre but her favorite treat is broccoli. Only cooked. She usually runs and spins in circles.


Favorite Activity: Jackie’s favorite activity is swimming - if we don’t physically pull her out of the pool, she would never stop. Doesn’t matter how tired she is...she will swim and catch the ball in the pool!


Loves: Jackie loves just being with us. Since she has arrived she has rarely left my side. It sounds cheesy but her favorite thing to do is to sit and stare into your eyes. It’s like she just wants to connect.


Fun fact: She never goes anywhere without a stuffed animal in her mouth (preferably the flamingo).
