Jack's likes to show off by showing people he knows how to shake paws

NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) -

He's not shy about showing off his talents.  

This week's BFF is Jack. His owners gave him up and he's been searching for a new family ever since. He's an Irish wolfhound mix.

Nacogdoches animal control officer, Stacia Newel says, "He is 5 years old, already neutered, house broken. He does have heartworm's but we are currently treating them and he will go home with treatment."

Jack likes to show off his skills. He knows how to sit and shake with both paws. Jack's favorite thing is to shake hands and greet people and he'll even shake without being asked.  

Jack's previous owners couldn't care for him anymore so they surrendered him to the Nacogdoches Animal Shelter and he's been here for a little while and he's really hoping that he can find a new home before Easter.

Newel says, "Jack would go well with any family. He's good with children. He's good with other animals and he would just make a great pet for anybody."

Jack like most dogs likes to run around and play but he also loves to snuggle.

"All dogs need a lot of activity but he does, he can sit and be lazy with yo or he can play," said Newel.

To find out how you can adopt Jack. Call the Nacogdoches Animal Shelter at 936-560-5011.
