Jake's Story...
Can't adopt? Visit to sponsor a dog instead!

Jake is a fun-loving well-trained dog with the perfect amount of energy. He can't decide what he loves more-- going on long walks, playing with friends, or snuggling up with you on the couch. He is house trained, knows basic commands (sit, wait, leave it, etc) and is in great health. He is about four years old, 40 lbs, and looks to be a mix between a Labrador and Australian Shepard.  He was first adopted from a rescue to a young family as a companion dog for a high-intensity beagle/terrier. Jake was playful and patient with his doggy friend, but as the family grew, the two dogs became too much.  Jake is the kind of dog that would be happy in many kinds of homes-- active, slower, with or without other pets, and everything in between although he would be most successful in a home without small children.  He loves to chew on bones, sunbathe, and chase squirrels.  Could he be the dog for you? Contact his mother at 434-825-0422 if you have would like to meet Jake.

Every dog adopted from Extra Mile Dog Rescue requires a home visit. We are happy to work with you if you live out of the area.

About Our Rescue Group...

The Extra Mile Dog Rescue is a rescue dedicated to taking dogs that are not thriving in shelters, placing them in foster homes where they receive intensive training and behavior modification, and adopting them to loving homes. We do this to reduce the number of good but poorly mannered dogs being euthanized in Virginia.
