This handsome boy is a purebred Bernese Mountain Dog. He is 4 years old, neutered and up to date on all vet care. He has also recently been to the groomer.
Jackson is house broken, has excellent house manners (you can absolutely leave him unsupervised in the house) and though he doesn't like getting into cars he has awesome car manners and is a model passenger!
Jackson is good with cats, but needs to be in a single dog home..
Jackson is a giant teddy bear with those he considers part of his "pack" and he does great in public places as well as at the vet and at the groomer. He loves going to dog friendly places like Tractor Supply, Petsmart and Home Depot!
*HOWEVER* Jackson fancies himself a guard dog when he is at home. He is very protective and requires multiple guided introductions to new people when he is on his own property. For this reason he would be best suited either for a home that wants a property guardian or to an experienced owner who is prepared to either handle guided introductions with visitors or has a set up that would allow them to keep Jackson separate from visitors. Jackson is a BEAUTIFUL dog and will likely get a lot of interest. But please consider his needs and whether you are truly an appropriate home for Jackson before getting in touch.
Jackson is available directly to adopters or to a qualified rescue group. If you are seriously interested or would like more info please get in touch with his foster home by using the e-mail contact below. I can answer any questions you may have (I've been boarding him anytime his parents are out of town for the last couple years) and/or refer you to Jackson's current pet parents. And as always.
Jackson lives in Charlottesville, Va and is currently boarding in Afton, Va
