Jake's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Jake's Story...
Jake has totally changed with the love and care of his foster mom and is now a friendly, outgoing little man. He loves to meet new people but enjoys the company of his own people above all else. He is fine with other dogs and cats and especially enjoys children. Jake is just turning four years old and is the step-brother to Peanut who is also posted for adoption.


Jake was sent to the groomers where he had no issues and returned a new man. We believe all the extra hair pulling was causing him to be most uncomfortable but now he is feeling 100 percent better and it shows in his demeanor. He is much more light hearted and enjoys cuddles and lots of pets.


Jake is a charming, lively and happy little dog. He is pleasant, loving and intelligent. Affectionate and devoted to his people. Jake loves everyone he is familiar with but can be reserved around strangers or in unfamiliar situations. He likes cuddles and to be petted but children would need to understand that they need to be nice and gentle with him.


Jake has a mind of his own and likes to be the centre of attention. He is sensitive, agile, dainty and likes to be clean. He does best with routine and consistency in his daily life.


Jake would enjoy being the only dog in the home but is fine with other dogs and cats. He would do best with older children or in an adult only home. He enjoys going for walks and having a back yard to play in.


If you think Jake would be a good addition to your family, please submit an application for consideration.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Jake, a Hamilton Japanese Chin/Shih Tzu dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Japanese Chin/Shih Tzu for sale in Hamilton, or seeking a Japanese Chin/Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Hamilton.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Hamilton already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Hamilton breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Japanese Chin/Shih Tzu breeders who help with Japanese Chin/Shih Tzu rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Hamilton paves the way for another one to be saved.
