Meet Almost JackMy friend Dawn, a dog trainer, found this sweet little face staring up at her from a highway. He needs a home - permanent or foster. In Dawn's words:

On Thursday, August 13, 2009 I was driving home from a client's house and saw a dog in the road up ahead. I thought it was a min pin or other small breed. I stopped the car as I got closer, and he came around to the driver's door. I opened the door, and was face to face with a starving puppy. I scooped him up and put him in the car, and took him to a vet as soon as I could.

I've always heard when you name a stray is when you get into trouble, but I kept thinking of him as Jack. I told a friend of my reluctance to call him Jack, and she said he was "Almost Jack". So that's his name now. Almost Jack.
