Jordan is an adorable 8-year-old Jack Russell terrier who wins the hearts of everyone he comes in contact with, humans and canines alike. Jordan likes to be held and enjoys warming laps; add belly rubs to the mix and you will have one happy dog on your hands. He loves to play and if it involves tennis balls, he will play fetch for hours. Jordan loves being outside; he’ll stand facing the sun with the wind in his face. Walks are huge on his list, which isn’t a problem because he has impeccable leash manners and does great during car rides. You’d never know Jordan is deaf and probably has been for a long time, for it doesn’t stop him from enjoying each day to the fullest. This smart guy is doing great learning sign language — he’s already mastered sit, down and will come in from outside when you flick a light on and off. He is also house-trained. Jordan is the perfect package — a fun, affectionate, easygoing dog with a big personality. If interested in learning more about Jordan, please fill out an application at www.azrescue.org.
