Happy Jake
Thursday, 13 January 2011

Jake’s is a special story. At ten years old, he has been at the shelter much of his life. He was found as a young Shepherd, obviously abused. Fiercely loyal, Jake was slated for a single parent household, and over the years found a few homes, but always his master suffered a medical setback and Jake was returned. He has always had a very guarded demeanor, understandably given his rough start. Visitors always gave him a wide berth, except Erin. She saw something special in our boy that she addressed, and she found a way into his heart.


After many years at the shelter, Jake moved into his forever home late last year. The pictures with his extended family speak louder than words. Check out these great pictures of Jake, Dustin (Jake's new owner), Erin, Gretchen (the chihuahua Jake lives with) and Amanda (another friend of Jake's) at the dog park this past weekend. Jake looks so happy!!


Erin's comment: "Jake thinks he has divorced parents. He spends several days with dad, Dustin, and several days with mom, Erin." What a wonderful story for the holidays, that our special boy has found a forever spot for his golden years!! In fact, he has found two hard earned forever spots.
