From the Foster:Jack is dog friendly, ignores the cat, likes kids, needs a fenced yard.  His house training needs work but I am hoping that many of his marking issues go away when he is neutered (March 31).  I think his current state of "in tact" has provided him with an excuse to be shy and afraid of interaction.  My guess is he's been disciplined rather harshly for marking. He will need a family accepting that he may need a belly band, and positive reinforcement to work on the marking.

He has a very high energy level.  He jumps up on the couch and loves laying on the sofa pillows.  He currently is very skinny - working on putting some weight on the boy.  He's also crate trained.
