PTSD, TBI, MEDICAL ALERT
Meet Joyous Jack!!
Jack is a 6 year old, 55lbs., neutered Lab Pointer Mix.
Jack was trained as a Service Dog with a previous client and knows all his commands, such as sit down stay and leave it. He walks great on a leash and is a friendly lovable dog. He is house trained.
Jack has many more years of service in him. He has no known health issues.
While Jack does well in public he would be suited as a dog-only home.
Although he was previously trained, he will require training with his new handler to suit their needs.
Jack would be suited for a handler older than 7 years of age (regardless of gender), who would be able to exercise her regularly. For example, 15-20 minutes of activity, such as walking or jogging daily.
Jack’s rescue requires an application process and a signed training contract with Service Dog Express.

We do not transport dogs as there are numerous dogs across the country that need a forever home and have the potential to be a Service Dog. Our dogs have been assessed as potential Service Dogs but have not been trained yet. That training occurs when paired with their handler. This enhances the bond between dog and owner.
