For all of you who keep asking, "what is going on with Jack"?

Oneida County Court: "Put an end to the Euthanization of Jack, a 7 year old Sheltie

Well... after has been locked up for one year, Jack will live out the rest of his life with his dad, brother and sister out in the country.

Update from Help Save Jack, August 16, 2013.

"JACK WILL BE RELEASED NEXT WEEKEND, the shelter faxed the new owner the bill and the total alone just for that is $2,520.00.. WOW, I was shocked, to say the least, BUT...he will be getting OUT! Marianne, the new owner, has Jack's dad, brother and sister. She is making the vet and groomer appointments, so as soon as Jack gets out he will be clean and thoroughly checked over. (we will give you an update on his health at that time) She also has to get him an invisible fence collar, and some other things that he will be needing, she is doing all this ahead of time... so she will have a good start before Jack gets released!
Natalie, and her family only live a few miles away, so they will be able to see jack whenever they want!! The Judge made this decision based on a few things, but mostly because of Jacks hip. If by chance the 3 year old did anything to Jack, that would hurt him or bother him and he naturally nipped because of pain, he would be euthanized, NO QUESTIONS ASKED! It would also not be fair to Jack to keep him muzzled or locked in a pen all day, as the little girl stays at Natalie's (her grandmother) while her mom works. So, I (Dana) feel the judge came up with the best solution he could, unlike the first judge, which was immediate euthanization! We will keep you updated as things progress! THANK-YOU... WE WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO DO THIS WITHOUT ALL YOUR HELP AND COMPASSION!"

Whether it is our own life or someone else's life, we desire happy endings. Life is better with a happy ending, and it should be that way Jack.
