Meet Jackson, our Adoptable Dog of the Week from Manhattan, Kansas. Jackson is an adult male Chow Chow mix. He’s already neutered, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.

Jackson’s Story:

Jackson is a big, mellow sort of guy. He is estimated at around 7 years old and 55-60 lbs. Jackson is a little bit aloof with new people but has been friendly with everyone he’s met so far. Since he is a quiet sort though, he would probably prefer a home without young children. Jackson came in to us from a shelter when his time was up. Based on his condition we are guessing he had always been an outdoor dog. He has done well transitioning indoors with us but he really needs to have a home with 6 foot fence in his permanent home, as he misses his outdoor time. Jackson will go walkabout if let off leash or in a short fence that he could get over. Jackson does well with the other dogs he’s met since he came in, including a very small dog. We are not sure what he thinks of cats. If you are interested in Jackson please don’t hesitate to contact us. This boy deserves a great home.
