Meet the pups on the 1Berkshire team
Hello! My name is Jackson and I am the King of my yard on Valley Street in Adams. I will be turning 10 years old this August but am still going strong! I live with my Momma and Dad and require lots of love and attention. As I am a Mountain Dog, I consider being in the woods my most favorite activity, typically hiking with Dad. I also very much enjoy my backyard, and spending extensive time on my many beds and couches throughout the home. Some people say that toys are for puppies, but i’ve been enjoying them my entire life, and have dozens of them strategically placed throughout the yard and house. My whole life I have always gone to work, usually with Dad, but sometimes with the Momma. When at the 1Berkshire, I enjoy the attention of my team members and taking long naps under Dad’s desk. Keeping a Berner like me happy is a tall task, as I require the perfect balance of activity, treats, love and couch snuggles. But my Momma and the Dad do the best they can, and keep me happy!
