Your Next Best Friend: Jack Sharpie

Jack SharpieI am very proud to be named after a beloved former animal control officer in the county, Jack Sharp. I’m Jack Sharpie, a shar-pei, 4 to 5 years old, 55 to 60 pounds. I was found with my collar embedded in my skin, a nasty eye problem and kennel sores, and just feeling very defeated. I have lovely manners and am a very loyal and typically somewhat aloof member of my breed. I like the girls; cats are an open question; other male dogs, who cares? Question is: Would I fit in with you and yours?

The past three weeks, six of my canine colleagues were joined with new owners. The Rappahannock Animal Welfare League (RAWL), 160 Weaver Road, Amissville, is open 8 to 1 daily. Call 540-937-3283 or visit
