ResQte Of The Week 2: Philly’s Handsome Jack

“This is my rescue pup Jack. He was found as a stray wandering the streets of North Philadelphia. He was picked up by animal control and was going to be euthanized for space. Luckily he was pulled by one of the employees and put into foster care. After a week in foster care, I saw him online, met him and adopted him. It has been almost 6 years since I brought him home where he lives with me and 7 cat siblings! He is know around here as ‘Handsome Jack.'” -Claire T.

    I’m guessing the owner isn’t a Borderlands player, although his lighter face fur actually does match the real guy. Still really cute though!

  6. Jack is, indeed, a handsome boy and looks like a total sweetheart besides! Hurray for a happy adoption story! Continued good health and happiness to Jack for many years to come!

  7. Claire T. how do you stop yourself from snorgling that beautiful floof long enough to ever leave the house?

  12. After another p**py work week, it is good to read wonderful resqte story. What a wonderful hoomin! And Jack is a handsome fellow ❤

  14. Claire' sis says:

    Jack is even more handsome in person! Claire rescued a wonderful dog who loves everybody (even the cats!!).

  15. “Handsome” Jack? Is that an allusion to Handsome Rob (Jason Statham) from “The Italian Job”? Regardless, Jack IS very handsome!
