This is Jack, a whippet-terrier mix. We often refer to him as our shelter pet. Upon visiting a local shelter we were looking for anything but Jack. As we went into an enclosed building he climbed a six feet chain link gate and jumped at the keeper’s amazement straight onto my shoulder and neck wrapped me like a scarf. I have never seen a person plea their case as he did. He also immediately took to my wife Connie. There was a seven day hold on him and she called every day to check on him. He is the MOST loving dog I have ever been around and we have five others at this time. I wanted to name him Jack after my father’s favorite dog from the early 60’s.
