Miracle dog enjoys Christmas with a loving new family

December 25, 2016

Jack the kelpie cross endured the unthinkable – a gunshot to the head. His survival was a miracle, and now, he gets to spend Christmas in a safe home with a loving family.

Joseph and his family were looking for a kelpie to adopt, when they came across Jack’s adoption profile on the Home’s website – he sounded like the perfect match.

From the moment Jack got into the car at the shelter, he knew he was home forever,” said Joseph.

“Jack loves playing with his best buddy Buckley, another kelpie next door. He does not seem interested in fetch much, but loves to have a run with other dogs. Jack socialises very well with other dogs and has taken on more basic commands.”

Jack has formed a very special bond with his 16-year-old human sister, but shares his endless loyalty and devotion with the whole family.

Shelter pets make great pets because they know they’ve been given a second chance and are grateful,” said Joseph.

“They have loads of love to give and only ask for the same in return.”
