Blackjack: ~18 months old male Black Lab 70 pounds Neutered

Background: This young dog was found roaming the streets of Fairfield. The finder notified the local animal control and made "found dog" postings but no one came to claim him. The finder decided to hold onto him during his stray hold period and contacted us for help finding him a new home.

What Blackjack's Current Caretaker Says: What a wonderful dog - we have named him "Blackjack". He is curious, playful, energetic, goofy, and loyal; and he gets along great with our existing female dogs. Blackjack is house-broken and crate-trained. We crate him during the day a couple times a week for 5-6 hours and sometimes overnight. He goes on at least one walk per day, usually with our other dogs. When meeting new people, Blackjack needs a proper introduction and a little bit of time to process; but once he is comfortable, he gets along great with new people. Our nieces (ages 3 and 9) come over frequently, and Blackjack does very well with them. We have cats and he barks at them – we have not trusted him to be off leash in the vicinity of the cats. At his core, he is a sweet boy and will be a wonderful member of the family. He seems very young and he just needs some training. He has shown that he is able to learn, it will just take time and patience from his new family.

What Blackjack's Rescue Rep Says: This young guy would do great in a home with other dogs and/or kids. Needs some work on walking on a leash. Not for a home with cats. Needs slow introductions to new people.

Medical: In great health. Current on vaccinations, heartworm negative, microchipped, and neutered.

Located In: Placerville

Our volunteers donate their personal time phones so please only call during reasonable hours (8am - 8pm). The Rescue Rep identified in the dog posting is the only person with information about the dog - please only contact the designated volunteer. We do call everyone back within 2-3 days so please be patient. We work very hard to make the right matches for the dogs and for the new owners. We get 3-5 dogs per week; we do not have a facility where the dogs are housed, they are in foster homes throughout the Bay Area.
