In loving memory of Jack
1983 - 2000
Jack, our Jack Russel/Staffie cross, sadly died on 8 December 2000.
When we chose Jack he was the only small dog in three rescues who was okay with both dogs and cats, and we had two cats and one dog. Jack was in the last kennel, which we almost missed. We could hear a dog barking and when we looked there was Jack with another dog called Misty.
He was not a dog we would have chosen but we decided to give him a new home. His history from previous owners was not good but we thought we would decide for ourselves. The people who took him to Brands Hatch had themselves rescued him after he was picked up as a stray, so we knew we were his third owners, at the least.
Jack was an angel from day one, and was never ill in all the 15 years that we had him. He got a bit grumpy in his old age and could be a verbal dog. We miss him very much and are so glad that he chose us.
