Jackson (#180157) and Lee (#180156)
Lee,the yellow, and Jackson, the chocolate, are a bonded pair of large nine year olds who were surrendered when their family faced foreclosure on their home. While they act independently of one another, they are very used to having each other around. They have lived with a toddler so are approved for kids of all ages. They do well on a leash, are experts at snoopervising human activity and do not require a fence. They both chase cats so a cat free environment is best.
Lee loves to be with you and being touched. He craves belly scratches, loves to sleep and has never gotten into trouble uncrated, so he hasn’t been put in a crate for years. Lee can be sort of a whineypants when he can’t be with
you or doesn’t know where you are. Lee is not totally adept at reading dog body language. He has gotten nipped in the face a handful of times by strange dogs when he has barked in their faces.
He loves to swim and isn’t too big on retrieving (too much effort) plus he prefers to play indoors or on dirt or pavement since grass seems to tickle his feet. Lee has some skin allergies that are managed with diet and medication. He is very cooperative with routine grooming, although he may look down and away as to beg you to just hurry up and get it over with.
Jackson loves to be petted, especially his tummy and rear and will thump-thump-thump his foot in perfect rhythm. He loves to play fetch and tug, but isn’t all that keen on swimming. He was a popular guy at doggie day care when he used to attend. His favorite place to watch the world go by is a wing-back chair, on the stairway landing or your front porch. Jackson does a perfect siren imitation when he hears one. He will bark at strangers, but the minute they come in, he saturates them with kisses.
Jacks has some intermittent allergies that are pretty well managed with diet alone.
Lee and Jackson are both neutered and up to date on vaccinations. Lee weighs 112 pounds and needs to lose about 30. Jackson is 109 pounds and also needs to lose 30.
