From the Foster:

I have never met a dog that loves to give so many kisses. He’s truly a romantic at heart. Jack was an owner surrender due to him attempting to bite the owners young child. Due to this, I would recommend Jack go to a home with either no children or grown children. He is such a sweet boy with a big heart. However, you normally only see this side to him with adults. Due to this, I would also recommend that Jack be the only dog in the home. Jack has been with us for 6 months (I will explain further in a moment) At first, Jack would nip at the other house dog if she got too close to him. It appeared as though he always had his guard up. He now does fine with the other house dog, however, continues to keep his distance from her. He can be playful, fetch is his favorite. However, again, he is only playful with his adult human family. He loves to snuggle and will be vocal when wanting you to pick him up to place him upon your lap. He loves sleeping in bed with his foster parents, which he doesn’t get 7 days a week. This is due to being vocal if he hears a noise. 

Medically, Jack has required surgery on his bilateral back knees, which required 12 weeks of healing between each surgery (thus the 6 months). He is healing nicely. I can tell Jack struggles more with stairs if he is given too much activity in one day. However, he’ll never turn down a walk. Due to not having a fenced in yard, Jack goes for two short walks a day, which he loves. Jack is also a lover of food, so be warn not to leave any other pets food lying around because he will find it and eat it. Jack requires a medicated urinary food that assists in preventing further urinary stones. He does best with a potty schedule, which if not followed, he will have an accident in the house. He is crate trained, so he does well if you are needing to be gone at work all day. 

If you are looking for a very sweet, loving  Yorkie, Jack is your man.
