Comments... Jack Flash had the most wonderful temperament. He was protective, and saved my life during an attempted car-jacking, yet he was wonderful, outgoing, friendly and dependable with everyone.

DM is a terrible way to lose a dog :( The eyes shining from that crippled, paralyzed body remain bright, intelligent, alert and knowing, right up until the very last breath of life is drawn....

This Registry is for you, my beloved Jack Flash, and for all of your kind, in the hopes that we can make for a healthier breed, through cooperation and the sharing of information.
