Jacque – Adopted June 2021

Jacque – Adopted June 2021

About Me

Meet Jacque
Status: Fostered
Estimated Age: 7 Years

Estimated Weight: 22 Pounds

UPDATE – 12 JUNE 2021 (from foster mom): Jacque (“real” name Jack) is a sweet, low maintenance dog who is currently recovering from cherry eye surgery and is being an extremely good patient! He sits nicely and allows me to apply his eye ointment and has not needed a cone! Jacque has excellent house manners, loves to take walks (although he does pull a bit, especially if he sees any wildlife!) and does well in his crate overnight from 10-7. Jacque is food motivated and LOVES veggies! He does very very well with children and other dogs. Jacque can also do tricks! He knows sit, down, shake, and roll over!!! Although not much of a snuggler, Jacque does enjoy being around people and especially loves to lay in the sun on the deck!

UPDATE – 5 JUNE 2021: Jacque is now in a foster home and proving to be a wonderful, kid-friendly boy! He apparently already knows several tricks and isn’t noisy like he was at the kennels. Great start!

UPDATE – 1 JUNE 2021: Jacque has had his cherry eyes repaired and is now ready for fostering or adoption. He can be noisy, so we don’t recommend him for an apartment.

NEW – 17 MARCH 2021: Jacque is a cute 7-year-old beagle mix who was given up to the Louisa County Animal Shelter in Virginia because he has a slight anxiety issue where he whines if he is not with his people. He also has two cherry eyes that need to be fixed by our vet. Jacque is super sweet and people oriented. He would be great for someone who is home most of the time. He will be available soon.


Q:  Can you tell me more about a specific dog?  Is s/he good with kids / housetrained / good with cats/ etc?

A:  What we know is in the write up.  Our knowledge about any dog that is not in a foster homes is limited.  Once approved, our adoption coordinators will work with you to match you with the right dog.

Q:  Can I meet a specific dog?

A:  We’re sorry, but you must be an approved adopter to meet our dogs.  Pre-pandemic, dogs could be met at adoption days, but you still had to be approved to adopt from an adoption day.

Q:  How can I adopt a specific dog?

A:  You must submit an adoption application and be approved to adopt.  You can do that under Adopt – you can also learn about the adoption process there..  It will take about two weeks for an adoption coordinator to get in touch with you.  Please keep in mind that dogs that are available now may be adopted in the meantime.  But we are always getting new dogs.   You can see them on our website.

Q:  Can I add another dog to the list on my application?

A:  We don’t hold you to the dogs you listed on your application.  It gives us an idea of what you are looking for.  Plus it will let us know if someone is interested in one of our special needs / hard to place dogs.

Q:  I indicated that I was interested in a specific dog on my application, but I see that s/he has been adopted.  What happened?

A:  We do not hold dogs.  Applicants in the queue before you are being approved and may adopt the dog you are interested in before you are approved.  But we are always getting new dogs in and your adoption coordinator will help you find the perfect match.
