found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
My name is Jake. I am about 5 years old. I had a loving home once, and was cared for. My dad, who is in his 70's, fell on hard times after his wife of 25 years passed away. He got me to keep him company and be his companion. Recently over Thanksgiving, my dad got confused, made a wrong turn, and got his truck stuck in the snow during a snow storm. Dad told me to stay at the truck while he walked to the highway. The Highway Patrol found my dad at the highway, barely alive (92 degree core temperature and pneumonia), and took him to the hospital. Someone found me at the truck, still waiting for my dad. The trauma of that night made my dads' dementia hit very hard. He is now in assisted living, and not able to care for me. My foster parents took me up to say good-bye to him. While at the assisted living home, I had the best time visiting my dad and other patients, and was so happy to say hello to the people in the facility. My foster mom and dad are giving me good loves until I can find my final, forever home. I am neutered, and a good boy. I am startled by loud gun shot noises. I am very mellow in the house, love to lounge on the couch in front of the fire, and do like to run around smelling the yard, as well as go on walks. I get along well with other dogs, though sometimes I need to correct the young rambunctious ones. I am true to my Border Collie instinct, and do want to chase livestock, as well as cats (so a home without would be best). I would do well with respectful and kind older children. I don't do well outside in the cold; my feet start to hurt from the cold temperature. I am nearly house trained, and am a bit chubby for a Border Collie. I have a huge heart, and promise to love my human endlessly.
