Meet Jackson, a 5-year-old, male Labrador mix weighing 58 pounds. He has a sleek, solid black coat with a curled tail, perky ears and a winning smile. He can be a bit shy around strangers, but once he gets to know you, he is one loyal gentleman! He loves to be close to his people and enjoys leaning in for cuddles. He’s gentle, quiet and very affectionate. He likes sniffing and exploring on walks, learning tricks for treats and spending time with other dogs. He can be choosy about his pup friends, so if you have another dog at home, bring them for a meet and greet to see if they get along. If you’re looking for a handsome boy who will stay by your side, he’s the one for you! Jackson has been neutered and microchipped and has received all age-appropriate vaccinations. Come meet him today! #170177
