Owner: Meredith Patterson
Location: Athens, Ga.
Dog's Name: Jack Dempsey
In a Word: Endearing
Job Title: Cat herder. He happily cohabits with 4 of them.
Star Quality: I love how much he loves me and wants to be where I am.
Favorite Reward: Anything that squeaks, which only lasts until he can rip it out
Favorite Activity: Hiking, which, of course, includes squirrel chasing and marking every single tree, bush and rock. We love to camp on the lake together.
Forgivable Flaw: He destroys pillows and scatters the stuffing everywhere!
Backstory: When I went to see the litter, I had already picked out a different puppy, but when I sat down on the floor, Jack Dempsey immediately jumped on my lap and wouldn’t let any of the other puppies come near. He picked me, and it has been a match made in Heaven ever since.
