Just wanted to say G'day. I'm an Ausie originally from Sydney who has been living in the U.S. for the past 6 years. Began doing volunteer work at the local animal shelter after work with my girlfriend, Lea. Then Jack came to the shelter and decided that we both were going to be his new family. A young kid wanted him but I couldn't bear Jack going to a young kid who just wanted him as a status symbol. We took him home the next day and our lives have never been the same since. He has taken on the responsibility as neighborhood watch, which he does from our balcony letting everyone know when there are people walking by. Thankfully everyone that meets him falls in love with him. He has been nicknmamed Captain Jack the Ambassador. Anyway just wanted to say hi and say thanks for a great website.
Matt (& Lea)

Hi! Welcome to the board! Is Jack your first experience with the breed? How long have you had him?
There's a fine line between genius and insanity. I have erased this line.

Jack is our first experience with this remarkable breed. We were never worried about the horrible stigmatism that is attached to the Bully Breeds. When we saw Jack in the shelter we were hooked...on him and the entire breed =)
