About Jack:

Jack is a medium-sized, male Heading Dog, aged 11 years old.


Jack has been my husbands mainstay for many years and deserves a great retirement. He’s done school pets day every year for the past 8 and has won most obedient and obstacle course a number of times – pretty good considering it’s the only time he ever gets put on a lead! In his time he’s also got most of the bitches in the district pregnant but hopefully in his twilight years his womanising days may be over! He recently went to the vet because he has a big growth on his leg. Vet said it’s a fatty deposit like Labrador’s get. Not cancerous, doesn’t seem to bother him but I suspect being in a kennel doesn’t help. Vet gave him a check over at the same time and said heart, lungs and everything else all very healthy. Not sure about his hearing – he’ll hear you if there’s food but can be ‘selective’ in what he hears. Still likes going out on farm but he’s decided 11 is enough and wants to be a pet dog, not a farm dog, so not suitable for work. Won’t be given away sight unseen and would prefer him to stay in Hawkes bay so we can keep in contact as he’s well loved. He’s used to horses and our cat. He ate a couple of chickens in his day but knows better now (dumb chickens go right up to him).
