20 Jan 2017: Nova and Jake are a bonded pair of older dogs looking for a home to retire. Nova is a female German Shepard and Jake seems to be a Lab/Sharpei/Pit cross. Unfortunately, their Dad is ill and no longer able to take care of them. Over the years, he has had many medical issues and the dogs were wonderful with ... and for him but now he is just too sick and has no one to help him.

Nova and Jake are a bit confused being in boarding after having been part of a family living in a home for many years. Jake was with his owner from the time he was a puppy. Nova joined the family about a year later. She was saved by her owner from being taken by animal control out of Forest Park where she had been dumped; she was extremely scared, malnourished, and her gorgeous coat was covered with creepy crawly things that had her smelling pretty bad.

Nova is a big girl topping in at over 100 lbs and in fact, her Dad called her Big Girl as well as Nova. Nova likes to catch snowballs and she and Jake like their walks very much. They also enjoy car rides. Nova is protective of her fur brother although new things sometimes frighten her – perhaps that is why she is protective of Jake or maybe it is just her Shepard shining through. Their Dad had nicknames for Jake too – the Jakester and Jake from State Farm -:) Jake may bark when a stranger approaches but for the most part he is wagging away, looking for affection and attention. He seeks affection and attention much more than Nova but she likes those things too.

Like many seniors (including the 2-legged variety), Nova and Jake enjoy peace and quiet so a home without children is best. Their owner had two cats. Nova did not chase them; Jake sometimes did but would not hurt them. They might like another dog if the dog was older or super laid back; no sparky ones for these two.

Nova and Jake should spend their golden years together in a home. Please consider opening your home and heart to these two.

About Second Chance Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a small, individual, private rescue group dedicated to giving unwanted dogs and cats a second chance. Most of the animals we rescue are strays and or owner surrenders to high kill city shelters. Many of them have been pulled off “death row”. We are very passionate about what we do, we love and care for these animals unconditionally. Our goal is to place our homeless rescues in permanent loving homes as their former owners have already abandoned them at least once before.

Adoption process includes adoption application, phone interview and home visit. Vet references are checked!

Come Meet Our Pets...

We do not have a physical shelter, we place our rescues in foster homes or boarding facilities where they are socialized and nurtured back to health before we place them in their forever home. If you are interested in adopting a friend, kindly look at our available pet on this site.

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption/Foster Application must be completed online via the link below.

Home visit is required along with Vet references. Our full list of fees have been listed on the adoption application. Our dogs come fully vetted and have to be spayed/neutered prior to adoption.
