Colby-Jack: Impossible Not to Hug! ~ Adopted

Colby-Jack: Impossible Not to Hug! ~ Adopted

Everyone who meets Colby-Jack hugs him. It’s impossible not to, really. He’s fluffy and soft and begs for attention like a big, overstuffed teddy bear.

Colby-Jack comes to us from Georgia’s Gwinnett County Animal Services, where he was picked up as a stray. We find it difficult to believe that anyone would turn this loveable dog out, but we’ve seen it before. In any case, it’s clear the only thing Colby-Jack wants is love and more love and we intend to see that he gets just that from his next family!

Huggably soft!

It’s obvious that Colby-Jack is that most popular of American breeds: the mixed breed. A mix of what, we’re not entirely sure, but we do see Great Pyrenees and Collie in his presentation. A big-boned boy, Colby-Jack weighs in at 56 lbs, but could stand to gain another 5-7 lbs., as he is a bit on the thin side. His coat is dense and unbelieveably soft. He is approximately 2 to 2-1/2 years old, fully vetted, heartworm negative, and ready for his forever home. He walks well on a leash and appears to be housetrained.

Colby-Jack is being fostered at my home in the Ocala area. You can view his photo album on Facebook.  If you are interested in adopting him, please review “How to Adopt From Us” and email your information to me at

Rub my belly, please.

Nov. 9, 2011: Colby-Jack is such a big goober! His latest trick is to drop to the ground like a sack of potatoes and roll over on his back for belly rubs the minute he sees me. I’ve never fostered a dog that wants to hug and be hugged like this guy does. And it’s impossible not to smile around him because he’s always smiling. What a joy he’ll be to a lucky adoptive family!

Nov. 12, 2011: ADOPTED! Colby-Jack just left here with his new dad, Robert Poppell. Robert and his wife, Enaya, recently lost their Aussie and were looking for a pup to fill the dog-sized hole in their family. Enter Colby-Jack, teddy bear dog extraordinaire! As you can see from the photo, Colby-Jack stopped paying attention to me the instant Robert arrived. Apparently, I AM chopped liver! Orlando, welcome your newest Dog Liberator dog!
