Hi RAGOM! My name is Jackson, and I am 8 weeks old. My estimated birthday is 10/7/2015. My brothers and I were born on a reservation in ND and urgently needed help……luckily for us RAGOM agreed to take us into the family! We have now been with our Foster Mom (FM) getting healthier and stronger and preparing to go into separate foster homes. When I first came to FM we all weighed just under 5 lbs, had coccidia, roundworms, and some other buggies that wanted to live on us. But in 3 weeks I have gained 2.5 lbs and received medicine to help me with the other things. I am working on getting a nice thick coat of fur so I can play in the snow this winter! I am built a bit more daintily than my brothers so may end up a little smaller than them.
My brothers and I have been working hard on learning about the world. When we were first rescued we were startled by many things and I was frightened by new sounds and people. FM has been working hard with us every day to learn we are safe and that new things are fun. I am becoming a more confident boy but can still be a little shy at first around new people. The good thing is I am treat motivated and once people give me food and give me gentle pets I learn they are safe. I am still a young puppy so have so many good experiences ahead of me. That means lots of yummy treats, fun toys, and snuggles!
I am already showing signs of not wanting to go #2 in my puppy pen or play area and will do a little dance and give a “panic” bark. FM then whisks me outside and I find a nice spot to go. Yup, I’m an overachiever when it comes to pooping outside.
Since we aren’t sure just who my daddy or mommy was, FM says she can’t wait to see what we end up looking like as big boys. And she says mixes tend to be more healthy in the long run so I’m glad about that!
Puppies are a lot of work, and I’m no different. We will require a lot of your time, energy, and patience. We will need continued socialization and training to help us become the best pups we can be. But if you are ready to devote your time to me, I promise to work my hardest at become the bestest boy I can be!
