Blackjack (Animal Adoption International, fostered Portsmouth)

Fluffy boy Blackjack is a 10 year old Collie cross in foster care in Portsmouth, Hampshire through Animal Adoption International. He’s looking for an adult-only home with physically able owners as he is a big strong dog even though he is 10.

Blackjack was rescued from a public shelter in Romania where his time was almost up.

After being treated for a serious health problem (now totally cleared up) he was brought to the UK and is finally enjoying home comforts and affection. He is a very loving boy but he also doesn’t like to be grabbed by the collar as it seems that he was traumatised by the Romanian dog catchers when they catch-poled him. Poor lad.

Black jack doesn’t show any reaction to other dogs while out and about but would rather be homed as an only pet. He deserves to enjoy all the attention himself!

He is a gentle natured chap, very loving and enjoys a good cuddle. Although an older boy, he still loves his walks and a game of ball. All he needs to be happy is to know he really belongs!

Blackjack is neutered, micro chipped and fully vaccinated. If you can offer him a lovely retirement home, please contact Animal Adoption International as follows:
