More about me

Hi my name is Jackson! I am an overgrown puppy who is looking for a home that can give me the training and structure I need to thrive. I have lots of energy and love adventure, so if you do too then let's be friends!

I love treats and am eager to show you how well I can sit for a hot dog! I do have a LOT of energy and would do great in a home with another playful dog who can keep up with me. I can be mouthy at times so I'm not a good fit for small children. I also love squeaky toys! Because I am very food motivated, I will counter surf or explore the trash can if you're not watching me, so I'll need some training around that.

Exercise Requirements: High energy
Dog Compatibility: I seem to get along with other dogs, let's meet!
Cat Compatibility: I cannot go home with cats.
Child Compatibility: No known history; I would do best with kids 12+

Dog Care Basics

Please be patient while your dog adjusts to you and its new home. Please take your new dog directly home on a secure leash, collar or harness and try to keep it a calm environment while s/he investigates and acclimates. The transition may be somewhat stressful on your dog, and it’s best not to take it to a friend’s house, dog park, school or other busy, crowded place right away. A pet who displays a happy, playful attitude at the Adoption Center may act wary and fearful in a new environment. Please follow our Adoption Counselor’s advice during your adoption process!

Consider Getting Pet Insurance

In your adoption packet, there is information about signing up for a free trial for pet insurance. Please take advantage of this offer! It can help you save your dog’s life in the event of an unexpected accident. Additionally, you can research additional pet insurance options.

We’re Here to Help!

If you’ve viewed our Pet Behavioral Support page and still have questions, contact our Pet Help Line: (775) 324-7773, 200

Visit a Local Vet

Please take your dog to a veterinarian within two weeks of adoption to create a trusted relationship for emergencies, annual checkups, vaccinations, and on-going care.

Vaccinate Your Dog

Your new dog leaves our Adoption Center up to date on vaccinations, but you’ll need to continue its vaccinations and you may want additional ones (example: Canine Flu).

Dog Behavior

Watch for cues about how your pet is feeling. If your pet seems timid, try to move slowly, or just sit in the same room reading a book and let your pet come to you. If your pet is full of energy and ready to play, get out the toys right away. But be cautious. Pets can be both scared and full of energy. Modify your actions to make your new pet feel welcome. The care you take with your own behavior in early days will pay off in the future as your pet learns that you are someone to trust.
