This is Jake (with my sisters friend in the background):
Jake is a dog I've been walking for a woman who lives near me. I first saw him when his owner was marching him down the road by his collar We got talking, and apparently shes thinking of giving him away because 'he's old' and 'he runs away a lot' She says she cant cope with him. I told her that older dogs were harder to rehome, and she said if she couldnt find a home for him he would 'have to be put to sleep'. Lets see:
He's 9. Has NO training at all. She keeps him chained up in her yard all day because he 'gets under her feet'. He's not neutered and has fleas. Hes never been vacinated. Hes super active and bouncy because she never walks him.
On the other hand, he is a really friendly, sweet boy. Hes good with other dogs and cats (a miracle as she said herself hes had no socialisation) good with kids, his tail is always wagging, and hes a generally sweet lovely boy!
I've been walking him for her the last few days, and hes a wonderful dog. I'm going to bath him with flea shampoo and worm him. She said I could although she 'doesnt think it really matters'. Ugh. I can think of a few words to describe this woman but I dont think they're suitable for a family site.
It's a long shot, but I'm hoping I can talk my mum into letting us have him. We have the room, and the other dogs are friendly. I have a part time job and I can pay to look after him (i already do with my other dogs), its just wether she'll want another dog and wether she's prepared to look after him when I'm at work. I'm so hoping she'll say yes.
Anyway, Here's some pictures of this sweet boy.
