Breed: Dogue de Bordeaux
Age: 17 months old
ABOUT THE DOG:
Owner Joanna Kelly got Jack from a breeder in Adelaide, Australia, when he was about 3 months old and the size of a pug. Now at 17 months, this full-sized French Mastiff weighs a whopping 150 pounds.
Joanna works long hours and hopes to enjoy her time at home with Jack, but the big dog will constantly mouth her and bite at her clothes leaving her exasperated. Jack’s behavior is even worse when her friends or family come to visit. While Jack has never drawn blood, he has bruised Joanna quite badly.
ABOUT THE OWNER:
Joanna Kelly is a corporate lawyer who lives near downtown Sydney. She grew up with dogs, a Cocker Spaniel and a longhaired Dachshund named Hurricane who lived to be 22-years-old!
BEHIND THE SCENES:
Field Producer Nicholas Bunker took a trip down under to sort through videos and help choose who would appear on the show. In this instance, he actually had to help Joanna make her video. Because of Jack’s large size and high jumping, Nicholas was left shaking after playing “dog bait” for the video.
