This beautiful flat coat retriever was found running as a stray. No owners ever came looking for poor Blackjack at the shelter, so we rescued him to safety. Blackjack is 2 to 3 years old. Retrievers have lots of energy and Blackjack is no exception. In his foster home, he plays well with other dogs and would love another high energy dog or another dog to play with that can put up with high energy. He currently is in a home with three foster female dogs. He is also fine with cats, but will often give them a good chase.
Blackjack is almost housebroken. He will need a fenced yard, ideally 5' or taller. He loves to go on long walks and is working on his leash manners.
Blackjack bonds quickly. He is a little more hesitant around men. It is probably best he have a household without a lot of action in the way of visitors.
Blackjack listens really well; knows sit, down stay and kennel commands. Blackjack also rides nicely in the car. At times, he can be a little busy and then other times he just loves to cuddle on the couch.
Blackjack weighs 48 pounds, which is about the right weight for him. Since we know nothing about his past, no children under the age of 10 years old with his adoption.
If you think your family would be a good fit for Blackjack, please read our adoption policies
and follow the directions from there.
