Jackson was found running the streets in Ogden, UT. He was thought to be a Sheltie so Sheltie Rescue was called and we brought him into our program. We now know that this adorable, fluffy, ball of energy is actually a Shorgi - a Sheltie/Corgi mix. His personality is very Corgi! Jackson probably hadn't lived in a home before because he wasn't house trained when he arrived here. But smart little boy that he is, he's now very good and knows the command "Go Potty!". We now think Jackson is about a year to a year and a half in age. He's learning to chew his own toys but still chews on my fingers at times and will chew on things that aren't dog toys. He's very mouthy meaning he uses his mouth a lot. He still needs continued training to learn to use his mouth appropriately. He loves to give kisses, is fairly strong, and is a very, very happy baby boy. He IS a ball of energy and can be tough to keep up with. He wants to own his Mom (he prefers women) and would probably do best as an only dog although with the right canine buddy, he does well. He loves to play with other dogs but other dogs often find him a bit overwhelming.
Jackson expresses distress when Mom leaves him at home. He's now crate trained and has learned to sit. He's incredibly sharp, very smart, and a lot of fun. Jackson is a great agility prospect, and a world-class cuddler. Whoever considers adopting Jackson MUST plan on taking him to basic obedience training classes. Jackson's adoption fee is $200.00.

Is Not Good with Dogs, Good with Cats
Special Needs: Adopter MUST take Jackson to training classes otherwise I don't think that the adoption will succeed. Jackson is smart and wants very much to be a really good boy but he's got some bad habits pretty well entrenched. He can unlearn them easily but training for the adopter and Jackson will be needed for this to happen.
