A volunteer writes:
Jack has been cared for by his owner since he was 6 months old. He is described as playful, energetic, quiet and affectionate. He has lived with children aged 6 months to 5 years old. He allows the children to pet him, touch his face and ears and even climb on his back. Jack becomes excited when he notices other dogs where he will bark and wag his tail. Jack is playful with the Chihuahua that visits the home. He will lick at the other dog constantly while jumping around him in attempts to get him to play.
Jack likes to be in the same room as his owner, normally resting by the door. When he wants attention, he will paw at his owner’s legs or jump up on them. Jack enjoys petting and giving attention. He isn’t bothered when he is approached or having his food touched while eating. He is bathed 1x every three weeks and will jump into the tub when he is told that it’s time for his bath. Since Jack was brought home he has had a tendency to chew on furniture in the home. He would chew on the kitchen table legs and random items lying around. His owner makes sure to keep an eye on him to prevent him from chewing on items. He received specialized dog training but it didn’t help. Jack is always restricted to his own room when left alone. His owner stated that he won’t bark but he will attempt to chew at the walls so the walls of his room are fitted with chicken wire to prevent him. When guest enter the home he will greet them with a wagging tail.

He sleeps in his own room but will tear up dog beds that are given to him.
