This good looking boy is Jacko He is three years old, but still has a little bit of puppy left. Jacko is very loyal and only wants to spend time with his people.

He likes lots of exercise and if he is going to spend time at home alone, he will need secure fencing. Jacko would love another dog to hang out with as he finds it reassuring and it helps him to learn how to behave although he does like a slow introduction as he can get over excited and nervous.

Chickens and livestock do not interest Jacko however he want to chase cats, rabbits, and other fluffy animals which is the whippet in me coming out! So probably a small pet free home is better.

Jacko will need somebody who can spend some time with him each day. A nine to five job would be OK as he needs consistent training and daily exercise helps him calm down and be on his best behaviour.

Jacko has so many good things going for him, with a little bit of setting in time he is going to make a beautiful companion.
