Jake is a very sweet & loving Shepherd mix who is 6 years old and weighs 65 lbs. He came to BarkVille from an extreme neglect situation where he was starved, mistreated, and chained outside. He was heartworm positive, emaciated, and had severe skin infections. Fortunately, BarkVille was able to get him the medical care he needed and place him in a loving foster home. He no longer has heartworms, and he has recovered to a healthy weight, but he needs to take Apoquel & Thyroid medication daily for allergies, get bathed once a week, and sometimes take drops in his eyes. He is searching for a gentle, nurturing human who will love him even though he's not the most handsome boy in the world and who will provide him with the care he needs to live his best life! He will joyfully repay his person/family 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 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!
