Jack is a gorgeous Australian cattle dog, about 2 years old, 40lbs, he is the perfect stereotype for a cattle dog: super smart, very athletic, very affectionate, wants his own human, and born to impose order on the world (aka herd). Jack has excelled at suburban living, he's a whiz at house training, crate training, and has really taken to being a back seat driver. Jack is great around humans, he is calm and friendly, but not really interested in anyone but his own human. He is a fantastic walking and running buddy on leash, stays right next to you. Jack has also done a lot of shopping and loves heeling to a shopping cart, its his job!

Jack's Achilles heel is how he reacts to initially seeing other animals, on or off leash. He tends to immediately want to charge in and impose order on whatever animal it is. And if it runs, he will chase. In his foster home, Jack comes on strong when greeting new dogs, but is able to hang-out with calm, non-confrontational dogs and does better with female dogs. But he is a quick learner and, from getting lots of exposure to other dogs and learning some basic training, he is already improving immensely. Jack needs a human that loves the cattle dog breed and appreciates their quirks. Jack would do best with someone that likes to exercise and that will be able to work with him on his leash skills. No children and no cats because he will chase, but he would do fine with another balanced dog. If you have an active lifestyle and are looking for a really great companion to enjoy it with, Jack is it!
