Victoria, VIC



jacks 1This beautiful boy is the epitome of loyal and fun-loving! Jacks is a beautiful energetic boy who lives to make humans happy and to always be at their side, he just loooooves the loving! Scratches, pats, belly rubs, couch cuddles, ear rubs, any form of affection and he is putty in your hands!

Jacks is so loyal and it doesn't take long for him to fall head over heels in love with people, he craves that one on one attention and to have a family who looks at him with constant love in their eyes, the way he would at them.

Jacks also loves to play, in fact, if you give him a ball he would play fetch non stop all day! He loves to get out in the yard and zoom around and show off his athletic abilities, the more toys the better, but balls are his absolute favourite!

Jacks is very fit and healthy and goes on at least an hour walk every day. He is a talkative boy, in that very special staffy way, and will sing 'OOORRRROOOOOW!' at you if you aren't putting your shoes on fast enough to take him! Jacks loves to have a chat when he's happy, or sad, or in need of yummy treats, he makes the cutest little grumbling noises or noises of complaint, but he isn't a barker. Jacks also understands many commands and is perfectly well mannered with a few being 'sit' 'stay' 'wait' 'fetch' and he also understands when you spell W-A-L-K and F-O-O-D, there's no fooling this guy!

As mentioned earlier Jacks is very energetic and loves walks every day, he is great on the lead and he also loves car travel and going out and about. Because Jacks is such a social boy and just adores attention and affection he would be best suited to a home that doesn't work long hours or is likely to leave him alone for a long time. Jacks would also be best as an only pet, he prefers to be the centre of attention, and deserves to be! So, for this reason, we are seeking a home with no other animals. Jacks loves everyone, kids included, but he can be quite strong and gregarious in his play, so older kids only, teenagers would be perfect! If you are interested in having the very very very best friend you have ever had and have a staffy size hole in your heart, please consider this handsome lad and send us an application, here is the link -


Like most Staffies, Jacks is prone to getting skin irritation and yeast infections. This is easily managed by only feeding him premium high-quality food and giving him Malaseb baths, but it is something that his new owners will need to be prepared for.

Dog Adoption Policy

Please note: completing an adoption form does not guarantee that an adoption will take place.

Melbourne Animal Rescue Inc. reserves the right to choose the most suitable applicant and reject those deemed less suitable.

Occasionally, there can be multiple applications for the one animal and there is NO 'First In - Best Dressed' - the multiple applications are vetted for the most suitable.

We do our utmost to contact all applicants, including those who are unsuccessful, to inform them of the result but as we are staffed by volunteers, most of whom work full time, occasionally responses are overlooked and we apologise in advance if this occurs.

MAR does not adopt to those who are not permanent residents of Australia.
