Jake has been adopted!
Sponsored with love by Erin and her fur kid Snoopy
Jake is a 9+ year old cattle dog, blue heeler mix. His past is mostly unknown, but what is known is that he has had a rough life and is in desperate need of some TLC. He is a quiet, cautious boy with a lot of love to give. Once you start petting him he doesn’t let you stop and often settles himself as close to his human as he can get.
Jake is a grumbly old man and is selective with his dog friends; he would likely need a home where he is the only dog. He is okay with other dogs on leash, but requires lots of space from other dogs in the home. He has no interest in cats, and would be okay in a home with cats.
Jake is house trained and he is great with the crate. Jake’s activity level is minimal, and he spends most of the day lying on his dog bed. He gets up to go outside, but sleeps for a good majority of the day. When he goes outside he sits on the porch and watches the other dogs play. He loves to play, but is often limited by the arthritis in his back legs. He is content to simply rest his head in his humans lap or play with his stuffed toys. His favorite toy is a stuffed green lizard!
Jake would be okay in most home settings, but if it’s a condo or an apartment it should have an elevator or minimal stairs. A couple with no kids or other dogs would be ideal. A slow and quiet atmosphere would be best. Jake has been through a lot, but he is sure to thrive in a loving home.
Jake was lovingly fostered by Amber
