Celina trainer teaching Jackson to be service dog
By Nancy Allen
CELINA - A big yellow Lab recently rescued from an area pound has been given a second chance.
Abandoned by his owner for being "too big and rambunctious," Jackson is being taught by Celina dog trainer Jackie Jutte to be a service dog.
Jutte heard about Jackson through a local rescue group that picked him up from the pound. She went to see the dog, which has an even, friendly temperament, and knew immediately he was a good candidate, she said. [More]
