Jackson has honed the art of companionship to perfection in his ten years. The handsome gentleman weighs in at 16 pounds of love and affection.

"It is with a heavy heart and great sadness that I share the crossing to the Rainbow Bridge of our sweet baby Jackson. He came to us with his pal Murray in the spring of 2017. I knew as soon as I saw these 2 babes that I'd never let them go.

Yesterday I took Jackson in for emergency care and had a follow up today with our primary vet. It was discovered that he had a very large liver mass that obstructed his GI tract. Sadly, surgery was not an option. I held him in my arms this evening and whispered continually how much I loved him as he left us. My heart is utterly broken.

He would have been 16yrs old in Sept. He was cherished and loved every day he was with us.

Thank you Havanese Rescue Inc for allowing us to foster and adopt these 2 beautiful boys. It was our pleasure to love and care for them. Murray continues to do well along with our other Havi babes, Iggy, Fergie and Baxter.”

Jackson has good leash skills and is always up for a good walk with his human. He also enjoys playing with his brother, Murray, who came to foster care with him.jackson on back Jackson gets along with other dogs but chooses to play only with Murray. Most of the time Jackson is happiest when he’s snuggling next to his human on the sofa. He is a connoisseur of belly rubs. He prefers to sleep on the bed with his human at night rather than in a dog bed.

It’s unknown how Jackson will get along with cats as he hasn’t been exposed to them. He does well with dog savvy children over the age of 12. He hasn’t had experience with younger children.

Jackson is in foster care with his brother, Murray. The boys are devoted to each other and will need to stay together when they are adopted. He’ll be looking for a family where someone is home much of the day and understands he wants to sleep up on the bed with them at night.  He’d enjoy a backyard so jackson chillhe can explore. Jackson and his brother Murray will be a wonderful addition to the family that is fortunate to adopt the duo.

Jackson is being fostered in VA.

A fee will be requested to adopt this dog. The recommended fee amount will be based on the dog's age, and medical and behavioral issues, if any.  A completed application is required if you are interested in adoption. Thank you for considering a rescue dog!
