Hi! My name is Jack Lalanne and I'm part of the Fitness Themed transport that arrived at OPH on 1-3-20!
I'm a purebred Australian Shepherd and I'm about 3 years old. I was surrendered to the shelter in Mississippi by my previous owner. My foster mom is still getting to know me (so check back for updated information), but here is what she has to say about me so far:
- I like to snuggle with my foster mom and beg for belly rubs!
- I have been told by multiple people that I am super handsome and very sweet!
- With a little bit of coaxing with a treat, I walk right into my crate. I am very quiet in the crate.
- I seem to be house broken in my foster home (no accidents).
- I love car rides!
- I love playing with squeaky toys and running around in the yard! I have medium energy (for an aussie). I like to play, but I also like to sleep in your lap on the couch.
- At just 40 lbs, I am on the smaller side of the spectrum for standard aussies.
- I am a little nervous of loud noises and fast movements
- I really like the other dogs in my foster home, and I just want to play with them (though they don't seem to know how to play)

I'm making my way north in search of my new family. Is that with you? If so apply today! I won't be available for long!
This dog tested positive for heartworm disease before arriving to the rescue. Heartworm disease is transmitted to a dog through a bite from an infected mosquito producing a positive test in six months. OPH will treat the dog and provide two weeks of recovery time prior to adoption. Potential adopters will receive detailed information on the disease and their role in completing the recovery process from OPH’s heartworm coordinator. With monthly preventatives, the disease is completely preventable.

This dog's bio is based off the experiences of the foster and/or volunteers of OPH as well as any information that we received from the shelter or previous owner. This is very important because it means that while they may act one way in the foster’s home, you may experience something different in your home.
