Join BACB Unleashed in welcoming our CEO (CANINE Executive Officer), Jackson. Jackson was adopted from Safe Hands Animal Rescue (SHAR) on December 8, 2013. His history is vague, but he was rescued from a “kill shelter” in Kentucky by the volunteers at Safe Hands and brought to Minnesota, where he spent a few weeks in a loving foster home.
Pam Miller, owner of BACB Unleashed, had spent two years recovering from the loss of a very special border collie, Scout, who had held the previous position of CEO. Pam was finding that it was time to open up her heart to another four-legged companion and with her passion and commitment to rescue groups she began her search on a Petfinder.com. After a few days of searching the adorable pictures of so many dogs needing homes in the area, she landed on a mug shot of a perky-eared, bright-eyed, yellow dog. And as the cliché goes, it was love at first site.
Jackson will have some big paws to fill. Scout had filled the position for 13 years and had many responsibilities – Quality Control Inspector, Official Taste Taster, CEO, greeter, canine model, BACB’s spokesdog (spokesperson) and therapist to Pam during stressful times. But after just a short time, Jackson has already shown extensive knowledge in the areas of taste-testing, greeter, and therapist.
BACB Unleashed is excited to welcome Jackson into this family and we look forward to many years of his leadership as CANINE Executive Officer.
