Has Jackson MUST BE ADOPTED WITH MONTY ever bitten someone? No
What, if any, medical or behavioral concerns does Jackson MUST BE ADOPTED WITH MONTY have? Jackson has a heeled knee/leg injury. He no longer takes very long walks/hikes as a precaution. He loves to run and play outside. If he overdoes it he may favor the other leg for a day or so due to soreness. We did find that doggy anti-inflammatory helped as needed (hasn’t needed 2 years). Typically he is A-OK! He has become more anxious lately due to not getting the attention he is used to. This is believed to be situational.
Has Jackson MUST BE ADOPTED WITH MONTY lived with other animals? Yes

If yes to the above, please explain the circumstances: In the 7 years we have had these two beauties I can count less than a dozen tiffs between the two of them.
Does/did Jackson MUST BE ADOPTED WITH MONTY hide from other animals in the home? No
How does Jackson MUST BE ADOPTED WITH MONTY interact with animals outside of the home? Jackson typically ignores other animals at dog parks and doggy day care. He sticks close to Monty and usually does not engage other dogs. We dog sat for a friend 5 years ago in our home. Jackson did not respond positively to this. He did not seem to like that dog in his (and his brothers) space.
Are you requiring that Jackson MUST BE ADOPTED WITH MONTY not go into a family with certain types of pets? Yes
If yes to the above, please explain which types of pets you are restricting: I think it would be in Monty and Jackson's best interest to go to a home with NO other dogs. They have interacted with a cat on a few occasions without incident, but we don't really know how they react to other animals in general.

Jackson MUST BE ADOPTED WITH MONTY has lived with children of these ages: Infant up to 2 years old.

Does/did Jackson MUST BE ADOPTED WITH MONTY display any forms of aggression toward children in the home? Yes
If yes to the above, please explain the circumstances: In general Jackson is incredibly loving towards his human brother. He likes to be right by him and at times the toddler has poor boundaries and Jackson looses his patients. He has growled and showed his discomfort. This seems to be in defense or a warning to back off. He would be great with older children.
Are you requiring that Jackson MUST BE ADOPTED WITH MONTY not go into a family with children under a certain age? Yes
If yes to the above, please list your restrictions: I would estimate he would do best in a home without children under 5 years old. He is such a lover and wants to be petted and played with. Children with an understanding of this would be an asset to Jackson. Any family considering rehoming should ensure they have the time to dedicate to Jackson and his brother.

Jackson MUST BE ADOPTED WITH MONTY's overall activity level: Moderately active
How does Jackson MUST BE ADOPTED WITH MONTY usually get exercise? Playing in fenced-in yard, Doggie daycare, Dog parks,
What should the next family should know about Jackson MUST BE ADOPTED WITH MONTY: Adopted at 7 weeks old he has been an exceptional family pet. He lives & breaths for your love and affection. He wants nothing more than to snuggle up next to you and play fetch outside. He will stay outside all day if you let him! He enjoys running in the yard and chasing his favorite ball. He is exceptionally loyal and friendly. He likes to be where the action is & will follow to be near you. His is very smart. He is house trained. His energy level has gone down with age, but he can still be quit active. He likes to play and get his energy out and then curl up and nap :) We love Jackson and his brother. This is tough for our family, but we feel if there is a better life out there with a family who has the time and love for him, he deserves it. We are happy to send many more pics and answer all your questions!
