    Woof! Jack the gentleman here, and I'm looking for love. I came to HSMC when my previous owner had to move and couldn't take me along. I love making new friends and I can't wait to find my new family. I'm great with other pets, very intelligent and (as if you haven't already noticed) very handsome. Staff keep telling me my new home is just around the corner, will I see you standing there?
