Jake is a very sweet & loving senior Shepherd mix who weighs 55 lbs and is looking for a nurturing & kind person/family to tend to his special needs for the remainder of his life. Jake came to BarkVille in the spring of 2019 from an extreme neglect situation where he was starved, mistreated, and left outside with the trash. He was heartworm positive, emaciated, and had a severe case of mange that left him virtually hairless. Fortunately, BarkVille was able to get him the medical care he needed and place him in a loving foster home. He has recovered to a healthy weight, but his condition requires a raw diet, holistic medicine for his compromised immune system, and regular bathing. If you can find it in your heart to love and care for this sweet boy, he will joyfully repay you with gratitude, affection and devotion every single day for the rest of his life!
Jake is crate trained, housebroken, and walks nicely on a leash. He is fine around other dogs but is too interested in cats to live safely in a home with them. He is a low key little dog who loves to hang out with his people and get the love & attention he never knew existed before coming into Rescue. He would be great in an an adult only home or in a family with older kids. He can be a bit stubborn so he needs a strong leader who will show him the way!
