Jackson, a 3-year-old golden retriever, was adopted by Steve Moore about a month ago from a shelter. In their short time together, Moore has trained Jackson to wait for him outside of stores while he shops and runs errands.
Jackson sits outside a store for as long as it takes for Steve to shop.
Jackson wears a sign that says: “Dad told me to wait here – Me waiting.”
At first glance, people walk by and think it’s another case of an abandoned dog. But this is far from what’s going on between Steve and Jackson. Tthey’ve developed a tight bond and trust that some people never achieve in a lifetime with their dog.
Jackson’s loyalty has made him an internet sensation. Steve finds that ironic. “Everybody wants to take him home. I just find that amazing because four weeks ago, nobody wanted him.”
Steve also obviously knows how to communicate with Jackson. “You can train any dog. It’s all just about the attitude that you have and what you’re willing to bring to the table to interest the dog.”
Watch this incredible video of Jackson waiting for his human dad outside of Target.
