From the Foster: 

Jackson is a mellow, sweet and attentive boy who just wants to be near his people, snuggle and play with his ball. He listens well, is easy to redirect and knows basic commands.  When I’m home he stays nearby either laying right at my feet or on the couch next to me. He is a cuddle monster in the morning and would love someone that let him sleep with them at night. True to the pitty standard, Jackson loves his people and would want nothing more than to cuddle with them all day if he could.   When you’re not home though, he’s ok just hanging out by himself on the couch – no crate needed for this kid!

He is so eager to please and follows his people around all day long just to be by them.   He lives in an apartment now and provided you are able to get him out and exercise him appropriately he has no issues with that lifestyle.  

As perfect as he sounds, he does have his quirks (Who doesn’t, right?!?)  He is working on some leash aggression issues with other dogs and people – he barks and lunges when on a leash, and with his size and appearance that can be quite intimidating.  He’s in training for it and doing really well, but will need someone ok with that, and with working with him on it.

He is dog friendly, and plays well with other dogs but for play time - doggy daycares work better for him than dog parks typically since he needs a little extra monitoring.  He is a bit less fond of smaller dogs so monitoring and playing with the right dogs is important.     In his forever home he would love a dog friend to play with though – providing they are about his size and on the tolerant side of things (Jackson can be a little demanding of his play friends!).

If you have a little experience with dogs and are willing to take on a guy that needs a little bit more precise handling to be perfect – Jackson is your man!  He might have a few quirks to him but once you learn his needs he really is a great friend.
