Jake   |   Male   |   Gentle Giant   |  

Rescue Story:

I was taken to Guardian Vet Clinic in August because I was found roaming in August and needed medical attention. I was in the Zoe's SNR program in 2013 but my owners from before cannot be contacted.

Date of Birth: 2012 or possibly earlier

Energy Level: Medium

Size (adult): Extra Large

Adoption Fee:

Good with Dogs? Yes

Good with Cats? No
I will chase cats.
Good with Kids? Yes
I am good with kids, but sometimes when I get excited I hump and mouth people so small children may not be a good choice.

Critter Twitter:

I am a wonderful old soul and have been called a gentle giant. I love water and pulling apart my stuffies. I am extra large and have an extra large heart to match! #gentlegiant #bigfriendsarebest #waterdog

About my Behaviour:

I am house trained but not crate trained. I have been trained to use a pen instead of a crate and I am very good in it. I will just lay down and chew my bone when I'm in my pen. I absolutely love people so someone who is not gone long hours and a doggy friend would be great! Getting belling rubs is one of my favourite things and being around people in general. My foster mama says I will make someone very happy one day. I am good on my harness for walks, but I will pull if I want to go see something...and I'm pretty strong.

I also love water and having my very own kiddie pool or trips to a lake would be fantastic!! I love chewing bones and pulling apart my stuffed toys.

I know how to sit and shake a paw but taking obedience classes would be great for me to brush up on some of my manners. I also bark if you leave me alone in the yard, but I think once I find my forever home I will settle in and relax a bit more.

How’s my Health?

I am recovering from a severe infection in my and ear from an unknown cause. My back end is a bit stiff, but this isn't unexpected for a senior dog. Glucosamine and fish oil would be great additions to my diet. I have been neutered and will be vaccinated and microchipped prior to adoption.
