Meet Jackson, Blue Ribbon News Pet of the Week

Meet Jackson, Blue Ribbon News Pet of the Week

ROCKWALL, TX (Sept. 12, 2022) My name is Jackson, and I was saved from euthanasia on the last day of my deadline. I had been picked up as a stray and labeled feral by the shelter. You see, I had never known kindness from humans, and I was terrified of EVERYTHING. I had NEVER received love, affection, or been part of a family.

Fast forward to today: I am a 1-year old energetic guy who gets along well with dogs of all sizes, and I am looking for my own family! My foster family says that I have come a long way, but I will still need a family with a dog-sibling to help me continue to figure this all out. My foster family has integrated me into their family, but it is time for me to find my own fur-ever home!

I am kennel-trained and potty-trained and take treats ever so gently. I am learning to walk on a leash and appreciate the new sights and smells. I crave structure and am a creature of habit. My people will need to continue my acclimation into being a family pet with consistency and positive reinforcement while I continue to experience new things and events.

I am still cautious with new people and have learned to observe from a distance until comfortable, and I’d appreciate patience as I navigate. Please give me a chance to be your loyal family member and feel safe with humans.

I am current on my vaccines, microchipped, and neutered. Contact Rockwall Pets at for more info or to arrange a meeting!
