Jake was surrendered because the family was moving...sigh. He has been outside in a kennel all his life so it might be a good thing that they gave him up. He is a little shy of big dogs here but watches what they are doing from afar. He is good with small dogs, but is we were told he is afraid of small children.
His paperwork says he is a min pin but he is too big and his ears are floppy, so we are calling him a Manchester Terrier. He could lose a couple pounds but would still be more in the weight range of a terrier. We don't know what he is exactly...just a guess.
As a result of living outside, he has tested positive for lyme, so he will be on 100mg Doxy for 30 days. The doxy will come with him if he is adopted before the 30 days are up.
His adoption donation includes neutering, vaccinations, implanting of a microchip, application of flea meds and worming.
Jake is in foster care so please complete an application at our website (www.castawaycritters.org) before meeting him. Completing an application does not obligate you to adopt; however, it is required. Applications are processed in the order received in an effort to find the best match possible for both the dog and the adopter.
