The Rescued dogs of BlackFoot
Meet BLACK JACK !!!
Available for Adoption
Black Jack was found roadside hiding in some overgrowth. He was staying close to the side of the road next to a deceased dog of similar looks. He is our 24th BlackFoot rescue. His current weight is a perfect fit 55 lbs but when he arrived he weighed only 28!
Emaciated, parasite infested, with skin sores and teeth worn down to the exposed roots. Who knows how long he would have continued to survive on the street. Oh how we wish he could share his story. We have no idea how he came to be in the poor physical condition he is in but … from the day he came to BlackFoot he has a whole new life ahead !
Black Jack is approximately 1 - 1.5 years of age. He has been with us for a few months now, and while he is still in need of a lot more training, we are happy to say that he has been fully vetted and is now very healthy! De-wormed, treated for mange, his many skin abrasions and minor infections all over are almost all healed. His coat is thick and healthy now and he has been neutered, vaccinated, and has had 8 teeth removed.
This happy, strong and athletic dog appears to be “ok” with other dogs and cats so far but we are gradually assessing and introducing him to a lot of stimulus here so, we are taking it very slow. Needless to say “leash manners” are not something in a stray / abandoned dog’s vocabulary …. So, the humble beginnings of his training has started! He is clicker conditioned and VERY FOOD MOTIVATED. With treats he offers fantastic attention and general engagement. He is e collar conditioned and his training will continue to proof a nice recall and further his skills. He knows "place" on a kuranda bed and will always be polite and wait to be released for his food dish.
We love taking care of rescued souls like Black Jack when we can, and we are 100% willing to take on the financial and time consuming tasks of vetting, training, and general husbandry of these rescues. When it comes time for Black Jack to go to a new forever home we will ask an adoption fee to help offset some of these costs. In the meantime … anyone who donates can help lower that adoption fee!
Even just $1 … as donations are received the web site will be updated to share all of the fund allocations.
Please be sure if you donate to correctly select that this is not for business purposes to avoid fees so that your entire donation can go to
Black Jack’s care including: vet bills, parasite control, neuter surgery, feed, training, housing, beds toys and treats ... all the things that DOGS DESERVE TO KNOW as part of life …
