Oh, Jack.

The Siberian Husky Rescue says he is a “very sweet affectionate boy,” but due to some mischief in his younger years, he is banned from residing or being legally adopted in the state of Maryland.

The information has come to light after Twitter user @historiancole found Jack’s information online. She shared screen shots of the adoptable dog on Twitter, simply wanting to know, “What ... did you do in Maryland, Jack?”

She seems to not be the only person who wants to know.

Be the first to know.

The tweet has received more than 45,000 retweets and 140,000 likes.

According to Jack’s page, http://www.siberianhuskyrescue.org/jack/, the information will only be disclosed to applicants who have been approved for adoption by the Delaware Valley Siberian Husky Rescue group.

But that has not stopped the theories from showing up on Twitter.

Obviously broke some rules. pic.twitter.com/FTSrzY5rYz

The rescue group based out of the East coast says Jack is not compatible with cats, but he does do well with other dogs.

He knows sit, lie down and takes his food gently, according to the rescue group.

Twitter user @historiancole has began to investigate why Jack may not be legal in Maryland. She found that the state has a one-bite rule, which can be confirmed with Dog Bite Law.

All I found was that Maryland used to have a one bite rule & they also won’t insure certain breeds :/

Regardless, the rescue group says Jack does enjoy car rides, so maybe the Siberian Husky will take a nice road trip to a state other than Maryland.

The Portland Timbers 2 soccer club welcomed a flood of furry fans to Providence Park, on September 9, as supporters were allowed to bring dogs to the USL fixture against the Milwaukee Wave United.
