Jake Owen did not have an easy start in life. He was starved and tied up for about 5 years while being used to hunt wild boars. Although his history has left him with emotional scars he is persevering and starting to flourish in his foster home!
He enjoys a quiet, calm environment but he loves going on walks! Lounging around on the couch and eating are some of his favorite activities. He also loves to follow his foster mom around the house, but he still avoids his foster dad. Jake has a fear of men or anyone that in his opinion is scary. Sometimes on walks he gets scared but otherwise he does well on a walk. He is a flight risk so great caution must be used around doors and gates.
Jake is a very fast learner and is completely housebroken! He also is crate trained. Jake has a great hound-mix howl that he uses to express himself! Jake has been known to shred things in his environment because of anxiety. He has started to become more comfortable in his foster home and he no longer is exhibiting that behavior. He will need to have a good kennel when he first arrives at a new home to prevent him from exhibit this behavior.
Jake needs a family that is willing to work with him on his fear and prepared to be very careful as he is a significant flight risk. With time Jake will blossom into an excellent dog and great companion. He has already mastered multiple commands!

Please note: Paws New England is a foster-based rescue. We do not have a brick and mortar building to house the dogs we rescue. We have found that dogs in foster homes are much more adoptable because they have been observed in a home setting. Dogs listed with Paws New England typically reside in various locations throughout the south (primarily Tennessee, Texas, and Arkansas) and New England (not necessarily in the state of Rhode Island). You will be notified by the adoption coordinator of the location of the dog you are interested in so you have the ability to decide whether to pursue adoption or not.
Dogs transported to New England are done so at a fee of $150.00 paid directly to the transporting company by Paws New England; no additional transport costs are responsibility of adopter. This fee is included in the adoption donation.
Adoption donations cover pre-adoption vet costs (including vaccinations, spay/neuter when age appropriate, and heartworm testing/treatment when necessary), a microchip, and transportation to New England if necessary.
Donations for our young, healthy puppies and dogs support their fellow canines of advanced age or suffering from injuries and abuse whose donations are reduced but whose veterinary costs are typically much higher. We appreciate your understanding that your dog will help others in need.
All known information about the animal is listed above. We do our best to give accurate information, but most of our dogs are rescues and do not come with a known history.
Paws New England abides by the dog importation regulations set forth in the states of MA, CT, NH and RI.
