Critter of the Week (Dog Edition): Jackson

Posted By on Thu, Apr 28, 2011 at 4:46 PM

Update: Jackson has been adopted! But don't cry, friend; there are many more animals at the HSSAZ that would love a home.

Jackson, a 6-year-old hound mix, wants to be your new BFF.

Jackson is ready to put his rambling days behind him! Found tired, thirsty, and covered in ticks along a stretch of highway near Wilcox, Jackson made friends with a kind traveler from Nevada passing through for business. During their time together, Jackson was invited to sneak into the hotel room for a comfortable stay and a continental breakfast, followed by trips to jobsites where Jackson patiently waited. During their brief stay together Jackson was an excellent companion — loyal, appreciative and easygoing. Although he couldn’t follow his new friend to Nevada, this happy hound now has renewed hope for a brighter future. Won’t you give Jackson a happy ending so that he can enjoy a comfortable bed, tummy rubs and a satisfying breakfast everyday? Please visit Jackson soon at the Humane Society of Southern Arizona.

And here's a video of Jackson going to town on a chew toy.

Come meet Jackson! He's currently living at the Humane Society of Southern AZ, 3450 N. Kelvin Blvd. The Humane Society is open Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., and on Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. The phone number is 327-6088.
