CrackerJack is living at MPR's mini-shelter. He is a very well behaved and gorgeous dog that doesn't cause any problems. Jack keeps his kennel clean and loves lounging patiently on his bed waiting for his turn. He is quiet, easy to deal with and never makes a mess.
CrackerJack has good leash manners and enjoys going on walks. He does well meeting new people, though he can be a little reserved with men he doesn't know well. He warms up quickly. That said, if placed in a home with a single woman, he could become a little protective of "his" mom. This is something to keep in mind if you apply for him.
Jack has just the right amount of energy, although he might be a little more on the calm side. That doesn't mean he doesn't like to play! He's just pretty chill in general and very easy to deal with.
Note that Jack is not a fan of baths or getting wet... He sure can act like a big baby at times, which is not rare to see with Pit Bull dogs.
Behavior with people:
Jack sure loves the ladies (and the ladies love him!) but he is a little unsure when meeting certain men. He does better with men that are dog savvy and know how to approach dogs in a non-intimidating way. If a guy is timid around him, Jack might become uncomfortable as well. He's never shown aggression, but he doesn't necessarily think every man he meets is a long lost cousin. You just need the right approach with him. When it comes to women though, he's a total lover boy.
Behavior with children:
Jack can be sensitive to noise and such, and we think he would be best with calmer, older kids or a home with adults only
Behavior with other dogs:
Jack hasn’t met any other dogs yet. He doesn't seem eager to make doggy friends. We think he would do best as an only 4-legged child.
Behavior with other animals:
Jack doesn’t seem to have a high prey drive on walks but we have a feeling he might not be the best candidate to share a home with a cat.
Jack is housebroken and kennel trained. Jack knows sit and basic commands. He walks well on a leash. He is very good while riding in cars and is taking applications for a co-pilot.
This gorgeous boy is the perfect gentleman and is very well behaved. His adorable head tilt will melt your heart but his good manners and easy handling should finish convincing you he's the guy for you!
