Jake has arrived and is fostering locally in New England - his foster family thinks he’s awesome.
We aren’t going to lie - he’s a bit of a wild child - counter surfing, toilet drinking - all the things a dog who hasn’t lived in a home before does - he came to us from the Bartlett Shelter so we aren’t sure how much experience he has in a home. But, his fosters say he’s so endearing and such a goofball you almost can’t get annoyed!! They are working on everything with him and he’s super anxious to learn so we know you can do it as wel.
His new photos show how gorgeous he is! Videos too!!
Before arrival to New England:
Jake is a great dog!
He is a happy fellow that loves everyone. He does well in the dog park with other dogs, male and female. He likes to run and chase other dogs and be chased. He is a vocal player and can get a little pushy but corrects easily. He is a smart boy and can easily conquer our agility course with ease. He has been around 8 year old children and does well!
Jake was found as a stray.
Jake will do best in a home with submissive dogs that understand his vocal play is not to cause trouble. He also needs to learn some leash manners so he can be easily walked. Right now, he pulls pretty hard on the leash and that may calm down some once he is out of the shelter environment.
