Jack Dempsey the Boxer

Athens, Ga., resident Meredith Patterson takes her dog hiking and camping

Jack Dempsey the Boxer
Feb 22, 2021

Owner: Meredith Patterson

Location: Athens, Ga.

Dog's Name: Jack Dempsey

Age: 4

Breed: Boxer

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.
